Book Launch for "Echo" .. Diana & me

Hanna+Diana-Sept09

Just a quick post here from me. Had a great time in Arizona but of course the three days flew by way too quick. I spent most of Monday and Wednesday traveling. But it was still a lot of fun. It was great to meet my friend Cyndy and to see my friend Linda from Santa Barbara again.

We had a lot of fun, hanging out, chatting about everything (lots of Outlander book talk of course) and just relaxing. I couldn't believe how hot it still is in the Phoenix area at the end of Sept. Over 100 degrees F (40 degrees C). Crazy. But we were able to swim in the pool which was nice, have a fun dinner at the Yardhouse and lunch at the Auld Dubliner.

And of course let's not forget the book launch event at the Arizona Biltmore. I was amazed at how many people were there. They had 2200 copies of pre-signed books and actually sold out of them. Luckily we were there about an hour before so we didn't have to wait in line that long (we still waited quite a while though) but it was worth it of course. I now have a signed and personalized copy of "Echo in the Bone" and a picture with Diana Gabaldon. Yay. :)

Well, now it's back to work and real life. I feel like I have just been going, going, going. I think it's definitely time to slow down and take it easy for a little while. Let's see how work goes today.

Mail update: Letters have gone out to: Charles/TN and Lotte/Denmark. Also have a letter for Eunice/Malta that I need to mail. Received letters from/still owe replies to: NONE.

That was a quick trip. Glad you enjoyed it. And as always, the restaurants sound great. Especially the second one. I'm guessing it was a good Irish restaurant, which I always love.
