The month of May has been a whirlwind. Let's see.... the first week of May I spent stressing over the Delacorte contest, only to find out that Friday that I lost before spending the weekend in Utah with my brand new book and a book signing. The second week of May was Nationals for clogging. Great event. Got no writing done- at all. The third week of May was spent researching and sending my book out for reviews. Got no writing done- again. The fourth week of May, would you believe that it takes a half a week to get ready for our annual Spring Show for the Boise Cloggers. Well, it does, and guess what. Yeap. Got no writing done.
Today is the big day-- our big Spring Show happening in my front yard. The dancing starts at 6:30 and it's one of my favorite shows of the year. The evening starts with a potluck dinner at 5:30 and then the dancing gets going at 6:30. This is where I feel like I'm changing hats. I only talk about clogging when I'm in charge of it. So instead of being a new author, I'm a clogging director, a teacher, a dancer and a mom. The trick is keeping everything straight in my head so I don't mess it all up.
And then, Saturday I'm back to the new author thing. I have a book signing at A Novel Adventure downtown Boise from 10-12:30 and then another signing at Book Nook in Nampa from 2-4. Which means, if anyone reading this lives even remotely close to either of these two bookstores and isn't irrevocably already engaged in other appointments at the time, I need you to come. Even if you have a book already. Especially if you don't. The idea is to fit as many bodies in a bookstore as we can. Weird, I know- but trust me, it's better than sitting in a bookstore alone for two hours.
Sometime between now and then, I'm going to put my writing hat back on. It's like not sleeping, or not eating chocolate- I miss it, it calls to me and I can't wait to get back into the delectable second book of Alvor.
