Live from Houston

Here I am at ApolloCon, and obviously I got the wireless Internet to work. I'm still amused by the fact that I didn't know my computer had that capability built in. I thought it was "ready" for wireless access if I bought extra stuff. I wonder what else I'll find is in this machine. I haven't yet found the coffeemaker. Not that I need one, since I don't drink coffee. A popcorn popper would be handy.

I'm having fun here, though I've been retreating to my room between events to try to work some on the book. We had a great Firefly panel this afternoon. As usual, we could have talked at least an hour longer. I got to sit next to Greg Edmonson, the Firefly composer, and he's the coolest guy, very nice and down-to-earth. In fact, when he was signing autographs, he had a poster that he asked everyone to autograph to him, so you had to give your autograph to get one. I got my CD signed. Tonight's the party night, which should be a blast. Then tomorrow I have two more panels before I head back to Big D.

I learned yesterday that Once Upon Stilettos went into a second printing a while ago. It's outselling Enchanted, Inc., so I guess all my stress about the second book lagging behind the first was mistaken. It just goes to show that my view of how things are going may or may not have anything to do with reality.

And now I'm going to force myself to work a little more. I'm determined to finish this chapter tonight.

Congrats on the great sales of 'Stilletos'. I'm sure book three will sail right through as well.
