Wow, nothing like a little altruism to make a mother proud... almost brings a tear to my eye. ;-)
A really quick check in:
1. I got the job. I'm now working for Community Partners for Affordable Housing. It's a fabulous organization and they even have an annual fundraiser called homeword, that fetes authors at a big dinner... and yes, they asked me if I wanted to be involved in that before they ever hired me. I will be working at one of the community centers 12 hours a week. I am so happy to be part of such a worthy organization.
2. I will be speaking today at the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association annual conference with several other 2k8 authors. I am so exicted!
3. And finally, my agent loved loved loved one of the ideas I sent her. Am so excited to get to work on a new book...
