You Say Hello, and I Say... Wine

Monday's in the house. Woooo!

(Yes, that's forced excitement on my part).

First of all, happy fourth of July to my American friends! Hope you're enjoying fireworks, BBQs and FUN! My weekend was full of Wimbledon, strawberries and cream and editing. I'm pushing feverishly through revisions of Willow and with the Romantic Novelists' Association conference in Wales at the end of the week (yay!), I'm going to take a week's blogcation. I'll be back a week from today with tales of wine, wine and more wine. Oh, and maybe wine.

Until then, have a good one, everyone!

  5. I switched the tennis on just as the guy who wasn't Nadal hit the winning shot. Oh well, at least I saw the presentation.

    Enjoy the conference!

  8. Sadly, I can't get to the RNA Conf this year (sulk!) or I'd have certainly shared a bottle of lovely wine with you, Talli. (In my experience of past RNA conferences - it's much easier and cleverly time saving to buy a whole bottle of wine when it's eventually your turn at the bar. Conf Tip #1). But I'll def be at the next one. Enjoy!

  10. Thanks for the wishes! Monday Holidays always screw up my sense of time, so I will be confused about what day it is for the next week or so. Have a great Blogcation.

  23. Hi, Talli.
    Thanks for the July 4th wishes. Enjoy your blogvacation. I am doing quite the opposite. Finding that I was spending too much time writing posts and visiting not at all. I am beginning what I hope will be a turning a new leaf period where you wonderful people will be seeing me more often.
    we'll see how it plays out...

    -Jimmy

  52. Talls! Just got 'The Hating Game' in the post and read the back. I think the ambitious TV producer is the one Mattie ends up with in the end-- but don't tell me! I'll read for myself. Thanks for writing the perfect book for the long, hot days of summer. ;)

  58. I hope the wine is helping your editing. I'm finding that my editing isn't coming along like I want, but probably because the doc's banned me from alcohol and caffeine :(

    Enjoy your blogcation and I hope the conference is enjoyable and inspiring!

  67. Have a good conference,Talli. Did you leave a question mark out of your title? or was it a snarley wine mine, rather than 'would you like some?' :)
