Happy Friday! I’ve had a busy week catching up after attending the RWA National conference last week. San Antonio is a charming city, but I think I’d have preferred to visit during some other part of the year. Say, February. It was definitely a very hot week. But the conference itself went well, and I met with many wonderful editors and writers, saw my fellow agents, and all in all, had a great few days. Re-entry, as always, involved a backlog of email and work, but I’m mostly dug out so I can promise a little less radio silence next week.
In the meantime, I bring you links to kick off the weekend! I hope you all have some fun times planned, and that there’s a little bit of time set aside for a good book and/or your current writing project. Enjoy!
