Hey readers! Barbara Vey mentioned her visit to Virginia Romance Writers on her blog today. Here’s her post.
She also gave a shout out to Love Fest, (squee!) which is coming in March, so I updated my page with details about Love Fest here.
She was a great speaker. I was moved and learned things at the same time. Afterwards she ate with us and attended our chapter meeting. I was the brilliant one who suggested we clap for every person who was thanked for their work on VRW this year. It turned out to be a crazy long list, revealing that a)those VRW members do a LOT of work and b) once again, I should have shut my pie hole.
When Love Fest was mentioned, I held up both fists and shouted something like “Love Fest! Whoo-whoo-whoo!”
Maybe I thought others would give shouts of approval as well? They didn’t. They’re a very lady-like bunch. In the tiny silence that followed, I felt like such an idiot. At least the name stuck in Barbara’s memory. ;>
