So Many Books, So Little Time

Life here on Planet Perkins has been intense.

On top of working two jobs, it was my mother's 75th birthday, so I threw her a party and all of her friends (and my relatives) came in for a shin dig on Thursday night. My favorite cousins (my cousin Dennis turned me on to comic books and my cousin Diane did the same with Barbie's, and now I have the most awesome super hero Barbie collection you could imagine) stayed with us for four days, and it was terrific to catch up, but almost impossible to keep up.

It was wonderful to be surrounded by people you adore celebrating a life well-lived, but reading and editing in between was just about too much. The New Jersey Romance Writers had their convention this weekend too, but Marsha Philtas went in my stead (see her blog post about it).

I have two big book deals in the works - one that I've been working on for over 2 years. When it rains, it pours.

sounds like you had a great time. Family is more important than books!

What a fantastic post! Glad you had such a great weekend. AND you're a fellow a comic book fan?! Marvel or DC? I'm a Marvel girl, personally (although I do also like DC's Batman); I stopped collecting years ago, sadly, when the prices skyrocketed. I also like some of the work put out by Vertigo. I highly recommend "V for Vendetta" ... it blows the movie out of the water....

Yes, it does. But at least you're not in a drought. :o)

Here's to the hope for some much needed rest soon.
