Fresh FIction Box Not To Miss

Sandi Shilhanek | A Perfect Day

July 11, 2010

What a week it’s been! Tuesday I got together with a small group of people from the DFW Tea Readers group, and had a wonderful dinner of barbecued chicken, baked beans, deviled eggs, pasta salad, green salad, and not only one cake, but two! We also had a lively conversation with author Annette Blair, who writes, not only romance, but also mysteries. I didn’t realize that, so Wednesday sent me to Barnes and Nobel in an effort to attain one or two of her mysteries by using my gift card I won from author Michele Bardsley (who can be seen in November at Readers ‘n’ Ritas.)

Saturday had me again meeting the DFW TeaReaders group for a fun and lively tea. Unfortunately we were not the only people in the tea room, and when I went to the restroom I got the impression that one of the elderly ladies from the other group wasn’t really happy about how much fun we were having. See when we start having fun we tend to forget that there are others around, and we tend to get a bit loud. We’re not rude loud, just fun loving loud, and if you’re ever in the DFW area we’d love to have you!

Tea was followed by a lively productive meeting of the Readers ‘n’ Ritas committee. We welcomed a new member to the committee, and are very excited about the upcoming conference. If you haven’t yet bought your ticket it’s not too late, and the price is still reasonable…only $65 until July 15, 2010, and then goes up just a bit, so you might want to hurry and buy yours now so you can meet Sherrilyn Kenyon, Dianna Love, and Candace Havens among others in person!

By the end of the meeting we decided we were hungry once again, and needed a girls night out. Where to go? A lively discussion ended up resulting in a place that had delicious deep-dish pizza, even if the girly drinks were a tad disappointing.

It was a perfect day, of fun, work, friends, and food. How did you spend your Saturday? Did you have a perfect day? I sure hope you did!

Until next week happy page turning.
