So I actually got in just over a thousand words tonight, no mean feat considering i didn’t really get much of any in the prior 3-4 days before that. Not for lack of trying! Well, okay, Friday night I didn’t try–I was too busy having fun with (aka Tor’s own Anna Genoese) and her friend Annie at “80’s Pop Queen” Tiffany’s show, held at a club out at Ameristar Casino in St. Charles. She went on two hours late and only did a 20-minute set, but I had a ton of fun hanging out with Anna and Annie, and yes, the teenager in me enjoyed seeing her perform some of the songs I loved way back when. And dude, I totally need a title like “80’s Pop Queen” Tiffany, which is how they referred to her in all the billing for the show. You may all now refer to me as “Y2K Publishing Goddess Kasey Mackenzie”!
Hahaha, kidding! (Or am I?!?)
Coincidentally enough, I started re-reading my favorite series of books that Anna edited while in charge of Tor’s Paranormal Romance line the night before we saw Tiffany–and no, I had no clue that I would be meeting Anna the next day, so it wasn’t an attempt to suck up! 😉 The series in question is Elizabeth Vaughan’s Warprize trilogy, and I LURVE it with many hearts and flowers! I have actually only read (and now re-read) the first two books, but earlier tonight I ran by Borders to pick up Book Three (Warlord), so I can finally finish off the trilogy. I really love Elizabeth Vaughan’s world-building and characters (even if she DID kill off one of my faves in Book Two) and I can’t wait to finish this off.

So close to 25% done it’s not even funny…I COULD write a few more words and make it over that bump, but Warlord is calling my name!
