The Witches are Meeting

Well, here's another week and we're closer to Halloween.  I'm looking forward to the Utah Romance Writer's Conference this weekend.  What am I looking forward to, you ask?  Well there's going to be great authors there, Christine Feehan for one, but that's not the best part.  There are going to be tons of other writers there who are just a weird as I am. 

Weird is relative, if you know what I mean.  Okay, so paranormal describes most of us writers, doesn't it.  I'm looking forward to talking with Agents and Publishers, hoping to sell my two latest books.  Keep your fingers crossed.  The Ghost is a finalist in the Heart of the West Contest, I'll let you know where it ends up.  Also there's a big witches kiss and send it ceremony.  Something I've gotten my black cat, broomstick and hat all geared up for.  I forgot the potion recipe, but I hope someone else brings that.  This is where you throw the last page of your manuscript in the pot and burn it, sending the smoke out to the publishers making them just wish your story would drop into their lap.  Who wouldn't go for that.  So, here's to all us paranormal writers.  Good luck.

I'll let you know how it ends up.  Meanwhile, keep howling at the moon.


  1. Totally looking forward to it as well! The kiss it and send it ceremony sounds like so much fun! See you there, and good luck on the contest. Can't wait to hear how it goes.

  2. Good luck! Sounds like fun. Wish I was closer!
    The editor emailed me yesterday and said she'd get back to me by Nov. 15.
    Not too long to wait! So send a ceremony wish to me!

  3. I wish I was going! Hope all you fabulous girls have a wonderful time!

  4. Joy, wishing you the best of luck along with any supernatural goodies you may need. Does Steve know you've tattled on him? Hmmm, that's what I thought. I love the idea for your Tshirt. Keep up the great work and kudos at the gathering.

    You've definitely got what it takes to win and win BIG!


  5. Congratulations, Joy, on winning FIRST Place in the Golden Pen Contest at the Utah RWA Conference. You must be on Cloud Nine.
