Vijaya Schartz Packing for the Arizona Dreamin' Romance Readers Convention this weekend, in Chandler Arizona. My printer pooped on me when I was printing the handouts for my workshop on BUILDING A BELIEVABLE WORLD. I finally got it to print a clean batch. Between the raffle baskets, the wine and the chocolate for the Book Club sessions, the books for the book signing, the dressy and less dressy outfits for the three crazy days of work and play, I'm glad my little Honda Civic hatchback doubles as a truck when I lay the back seats down. I'm looking forward to this fun and exciting event... and the gorgeous male cover models competing for the MAN OF OUR DREAMS. See more at:
