Leaving on a Jet Plane

Tomorrow I'm leaving on a Jet Plane to Cincinnati. :)

I'll be there in plenty of time so I can go to Lori Foster's Reader and Author Get Together (see below). If you're in the area, please stop into the book signing. I'd love to meet you. We'll be having a lot of fun on June 6th, 7th and 8th. The Barnes and Noble BOOK SIGNING will be inside the hotel from 3:00 to 5:00 pm at the Cincinnati Marriott North

(Just north of Cincinnati on I-75 at Union Center Blvd, exit 19) West Chester, Ohio, 6189 Mulhauser Rd, West Chester, OH 45069-4842

And if you're curious about the READER AND AUTHOR GET TOGETHER, you can find out more at Lori Foster's website, at: http://lorifoster.com/community/readergettogthr.htm
This year around 270 people are registered, including authors, agents, edito
rs, publishers, industry professionals, and of course, READERS!

Lori Foster, Dianne Castell, and their group will be helping many worthy causes such as
our troops and Lori's favorite no-kill animal shelter, the ANIMAL ADOPTION FOUNDATION, and the Hamilton Co. YWCA Battered Women's Shelter.

I know not everybody's lucky enough to spend next weekend in Cincinnati, or in my view, heaven on earth, but there's still a great way to help the causes they support.



Lori's groups' anthology, The Power Of Love, will be released June 3, 2008. Be sure to pick up a copy. All proceeds will help the Hamilton Co. YWCA Battered Women's Shelter.

Ten copies of the Power Of Love signed by ALL the authors in the book, and then they’ll auction them off on Ebay with proceeds to go to one of our charities. So if you want a copy signed by everyone, check out the blog www.runningwithquills.com

I'll try to blog steadily this week, but honestly, I'll be visiting with my father, the neighbors I grew up with, my aunts, uncles, and cousins, so I can't promise too much. I'll also be preparing for Lori's Readers' N Writers' Get Together next weekend. Of course, I won't be at the day job and I won't be taxi cab to the kids, so I may actually have more time online and writing. I'll play it by ear.

I'll check in as often as I'm able.

I'm excited to be going although I'm rather nervous of getting on that plane. (I hope I get the happy plane.)

I don't know why. I used to love to fly and I know the statistics say that it's safer to fly than ride in a car, but then if the plane engines go out, it crashes from several thousand feet. If a car's engine stops, I just sit on the side of the road (safe) till help arrives.



I thought that was it for my blog tonight, but I just found this present in my email box that I have to share.

"Brit Party"
was just awarded 5 hearts by Night Owl Romance.

Quote "All six of these writers are clearly talented, having written several stand-alone books throughout their careers. They don’t disappoint this time around by giving expertly complied stories of romance filled with erotic pleasure that leave us breathless and wanting more..."

Thank you Night Owl Romance and Priscilla Petty for the great review.

Really? Cincinatti is that good? Why?

Ashley Ladd said...

Cincinnati's probably that good because it's HOME. My home.

Although now I'm finally here, it's changed a lot, and so far, not for the better, so I may change that verdict. :(

Glad you arrived safely! Sorry...plans for Cincy fell through. I'll see you there next year!

Want to drive over for the Wine and Art Fair the following weekend?

Yay for the review! Looking forward to reading it:)
