Instead of staying home this Mother's Day, Shelagh and I are on our way to the most exotic city in the contiguous 48 states---New Orleans!
For years, we've wanted to go to the Big Easy. Fortunately, we finally found a tax-deductible reason to get off our butts and go party. We're setting up and selling Last Kiss goodies at the RT Booklovers Convention.
This'll be our first time at this con for romance novelist and fans. And it should be a hoot!
I literally can't remember the last time I was so excited about going to a convention. Plus, we get to rubberneck in the world capitol of jazz, zombies, voodoo and vampires.
Meanwhile, back in 1958... Original Art Art by John Tartaglione from "Dear Jilted" in Brides in Love #8, 1958. Welcome to "the Most Boring Swinger's Party of All Time!"
8-9 p.m.: Polite conversation about the weather.
9-10 p.m.: Tell a slightly dirty joke. Then apologize to your date. Apologize again. Keep apologizing-because really, it wasn't that funny!
10-midnight: Dancing. Hands above the waist, young man!
12-12:30 a.m.: Thank the host and say goodbye. Then flee!!!
12:30-12:33 a.m.: Get in your car, buckle up and give your date a quick kiss. Then maybe another one.
