It’s National Make a Friend Day!
Books have been my friends since I read my first fairytale.
We moved a lot from state to state when I was a kid due to my dad’s work, so I was kinda slow making friends. I remember a teacher wrote on my report card, “…works well by herself, is shy and reads a lot.”
I was already in my third school.
And I was in the 3rd grade.
Over the years, books are still my friends, but like the little girls in the graphic I put together, it’s more fun to share those books with a friend.
So here’s to OCC/RWA and all the friends I’ve made over the years at OCC. From the audio meeting podcasts I did every month, to the RWA podcasts (never forget the Harlequin party at Atlanta when I videoed the OCC authors at the Ritz Carlton) to the interviews I did with guests at our meetings (Steven Cannell was definitely one of my favorites and a true gentleman). Thank you for being my friends…
And to everyone out there who stops by to read our stories and posts, I like to think of you as my friends, too. Got a question? Comment? Ask me.
