Fresh FIction Box Not To Miss

Learning and stuff…

March 14, 2006

Hey, sorry for the delays in getting up my latest reading…but I’m at the annual conference in Austin learning all kinds of good stuff to make FreshFiction better and best (quoting one of my kiddos). So….the latest booksigning blog entry didn’t get entered BUT and I do say that with great emphasis, the photos from that awesome event in Lewisville were added to Flickr.

So, long story short, you can check out the author’s lovely photos and look forward to a great blog entry when I get back from SXSW (yes, I’m at the South By South West Interactive conference with Mindy and yes, we met lots of famous, or at least famous to somebody, actors, writers, musicicans, directors, producers, designers and whatnot).

Check out the DFW Texas writers who signed at the Lewisville Barnes and Noble on March 4th, in no particular order other than my faulty memory…

Jodi Thomas, New York Times bestselling author of over 22 romance and historical western novels. Jodi is a two-time RITA award-winner, and a National Readers Choice recipient for the romantic suspense,
“Finding Mary Blaine.”

Jennifer Archer, multi-published and USA Today bestselling author of romance and women’s fiction, whose “The Me I Used to Be” has been approached for film rights.

Candace Havens, Barnes & Noble bestseller for her paranormal chick-lit, “Charmed & Dangerous”, and nationally syndicated
journalist who is also the entertainment news reporter on the DFW’s
96.3 KSCS with the infamous Dorsey Gang.

Sarah Clark Jordan, author of the children’s book “The BossQueen, Little BigBark, and the Sentinel Pup,” which earned a starred review with Library Journal and is now in its third printing.

Britta Coleman, newspaper columnist and author of the mainstream
novel, “Potter Springs”, which recently won the Lone Star Scribe
Award from Barnes & Noble Booksellers.

As for the famous people I’m encountering this week: the short guy with the mohawk — does that really make him look taller — was Justin Theroux running with his entourage through the Hilton lobby. Gwen is proud of the piece of candy DAVID CROSS gave her at one of her panels and she did wash her hand eventually (whew, we were getting a little phobic about the germs she’d collect). And, yes, even ancient Sara recognized HENRY ROLLINS as soon as he walked in for his talk. He’s brillant, witty and very charming — oh, where has all the anger gone — looking forward to his new show on IFC.

That’s it for now… see ya later in the week.
