Checking In

Last night my dude and I went to see Fashionistas. I’ll actually write a longer review of the show later on but I’ll say now it’s the best show I’ve seen in Vegas, in fact, one of the best shows I’ve seen period. Great dancing, fabulous soundtrack and well, the dancers’ bodies are off the chain.

I’ve gotten some reading done this last week and some new story ideas. I love traveling, it always gives me new ideas. Of course, I have so many deadlines, I’ll be writing these ideas next year at the earliest.

Speaking of writing, I’ve just contracted a contemporary novella, To Do List, with Samhain. It’s got a holiday theme and it’ll be out in December. More details to follow.

It’s 109 here. Seriously. Bleh. The heat? She sux. Still, Vegas being Vegas, you don’t go outside much anyway, although I did walk way too much in stilettos last night and my toes, they pay for the pain.

Tonight it’s more fun! I’m hoping to go shoot machine guns tomorrow, I’d like to know what it feels like when I’m writing some of my heroines.

Whheee! Food is here. Gotta step!

    okay, when you get home you have got to email me and tell me where in Vegas you go to shoot machine guns. Next time Biker Dude and I go there I wanna do that.


    So glad you’re having a good time! Enjoy!

    gorgeous photo wenchly!! my sis is trying to kidnap me and drag me to Vegas for 3 days in October. Machine gun shooting, huh? do they have like sword fighting there too?

    what a great concept though – a retreat designed around letting authors get the “feel” of characters’ actions – whether it’s scuba diving or machine guns or survivalist weekend in the woods…
