I’m Late!

February 6, 2016 by in category Pets, Romance & Lots of Suspense by Linda O. Johnston tagged as , ,

by Linda O. Johnston

 

Sorry, but I’m posting this late.  I let the beginning of February get away from me. 

And unfortunately, not only did I miss the first OCC meeting of the year, thanks to a wonderful family visit, but I won’t be at this month’s meeting either.    

Why?  Well, I’ll be in New York City that weekend at the Dog Writers Association of America’s seminar and awards event.  My first Barkery & Biscuits Mystery BITE THE BISCUIT is a finalist in the fiction category for the Maxwell Awards presented by the DWAA.  I’ve got some fierce competition, but whether or not I win I’m thrilled to be a finalist.  Plus, I look forward to meeting even more people who love to write about dogs.   

The event is on Valentine’s Day.  Guess I won’t be spending a special and romantic day with my husband this year, but he fortunately understands. 

So–will I be at the March meeting?  I certainly hope so!  I miss OCC this year.  And I have registered for RWA National in San Diego in July, so I’m sure I’ll see a lot of you there, too. 

In any event, have a wonderful Valentine’s Day–a very special holiday to all of us who write romances.
