Sara Reyes | Do Special Events Make for a Better Relationship with Artists Creation?
Saturdays with Sara / May 2, 2009

And by artists I am referring to authors and film makers this time around. We’ll leave the musicians, painters, sculptors, and programmers out of the conversation. If you know me well, you’ll find I consider almost all producers of a “thing” including code as “creative artists” but I will not digress today. Back to the topic of “does meeting the artist make you like or appreciate the work better or less?” Lone Star Trilogy (May, June, July: Buy Your Copy today Pre-Order Your Copy today Pre-order Your Copy today Here’s the deal. Today we’re having a high tea with Susan Mallery. It’s a special private tea with just our book club and Susan.

Yet being the daughter, wife and mother of Marines, the advantage of living around predominantly men my entire life is I know them. I’m not saying I’ve figured men out, but I understand how military men will react to the most common events. The rest, I make it up. It doesn’t hurt to sleep with your source, either. =) Click to read the rest of Amy’s blog, comment and enter her blog contest. Visit to learn more about books and authors.
