The sense of humor, it is genetic, evidently

So my 7 y.o daughter has a homework reading and Q&A assignment on Komodo Dragons. I check it over and basically the essay is about how dangerous they can be, what they eat for prey, how they jump out at you from ambush and stick their big scary teeth into you, kind of like politicians in an election year. (ba dum bomp) Also they all live in one village to keep away the man-eating dragons.

Anyway, one of the questions she had to answer was:

If you wanted to get across the island of Komodo, how could the villagers help you?
And she wrote:

Umm . . . Health insurance?
I laughed so hard I nearly cried and let her leave it just like that. rofl.
Poor kid is doomed. I need to start saving money for her therapy now.

And please don't forget to stop by Romance Novel TV and say hi!! I'm guest authoring through tomorrow!

Day 3 at Cherry Con

and I'm having too much fun - this can't be legal!!!! I've met so many lovely ladies who I've only known online and been lucky enough to get to know them better. I'll blog more about it when I can post pics and put some faces with names. We've really had a fab time and the Marriott here in covington, KY, right on the river, has been super.

Tonight the lovely and talented Ann Christopher picked me up for dinner and we had a terrific time. Ann is a former trial lawyer, too, and she has 2 kids the exact same ages as mine. Frankly, we have so much in common she's like my younger, prettier sister! Needless to say we had a great dinner and then dessert over at the Barnes and Noble, where I was pleased to see WILD THING and THE NAKED TRUTH anthologies both still on the shelves, with plenty of space available for ATLANTIS AWAKENING to fit in there on November 6th. :)

Hope you're all enjoying your weekend as much as I am!!

Coffee doesn't work as well when you wear it instead of drink it

Just home from Starbucks where I dumped a triple venti pumpkin spiced latte all over myself, my table, and my notes for LESSONS LEARNED IN THE TRENCHES, a talk I'm giving with my friend Barbara Caridad Ferrer at next week's Jennifer Crusie Cherry Con. Does that make "don't drink coffee in public until after I've already had coffee" a lesson? Nah, too circular. :)

I had lunch yesterday with my lovely neighbor, who happens to have the same first name as my editor and one of my dearest friends, so I have to footnote their entries on my cel phone. lol. She has already been far more neighborly and friendly in a few weeks (deadline weeks, even!) than any of my neighbors at my last house were in two years. We really, really love this neighborhood. Everyone is so friendly and gracious and there are tons of kids for ours to play with and make new friends. I'm planning a neighborhood barbecue for Halloween (yes, that's me, never take on a SMALL task when you can turn it into something OVER THE TOP!) and Navy Guy and I will grill up a zillion or so hotdogs and have juice and sodas and people can bring a simple dish and that way we'll have feeding the kids out of the way before the hordes of trick or treaters begin. Plus it's a way for the kids to get more time to show off their costumes, which they love. My daughter is going to be the Spider Queen and my son will be Legolas. I will be a pirate, complete with parrot, and Stacy you KNOW I am missing my pirate boyfriend now!!!! ROFL.

I'm back at work today--I've been itching to get back to Justice. He's such a complex character and he fascinates me, so I can't wait to get back to him. Only 27 days till Atlantis Awakening!! I can hardly wait!!

And even more pictures . . .

The reader group shot!! AT the Mellow Mushroom! HUGE thanks to the lovely Sue Smallwood for setting this up!

Me with Dianna Love Snell, who is a fabulous writer and the conference chair for M&M. She and her team did a brilliant job.

Me with Linda Howard, who is as tremendously wise and funny as she is talented. She had such good advice on staying sane and grounded in the insanity of the publishing business.


Did I mention pictures?

this from a restaurant on the drive from Virginia to Florida. My question: do they send the busboys out back with a shotgun to wait for the covey to fly over? Never, ever have I seen all you can eat QUAIL before.

Did I mention Peanut had an ear infection? Again? This is her "take me to your leader" pose. (She's all better now!)

The lovely Pam with me at my reader dinner in Atlanta. She was just delightful and gave me a beautiful handmade bracelet. I had SUCH a wonderful time at the Moonlight and Magnolias conference. I think Georgia people are among the nicest in the world!

Happy October!!

Life has been a little crazy, as usual. I think I should just accept that there is no such thing as normal in my life. The good news is coming fast: my editor LOVED Shifter's Lady, my novella for the March '08 anthology SHIFTER, so that made me a very happy author. :)

And all the review for ATLANTIS AWAKENING are totally rocking!! Romantic Times gave it 4 and a half stars!! "Poseidon's hot and sexy boys are back and ready to rumble. Day's world continues to gain layers of complexity as the characters discover more about the events and people evolving around them. Ancient warrior attitudes get a major jolt as they collide with the modern world and feminine power. Pure escapist fun!"

Woo hoo!!

Paranormal writers' reviews said: "Atlantis Awakening and the whole world created by Alyssa Day is fascinating and unique. Readers will thrill as they get to know each of the warriors better, but even more they will sigh at the intense action brought to them through Ven. It takes a lot to bring down the King's Vengeance and Alyssa Day has found just the right woman to do it. Readers should look forward to finding out what other women are in the world that will bring down the next hard-bodied Atlantean."

And pictures! I have pictures from the conference in Atlanta and my fabulous reader dinner! Stay tuned while I figure out this new camera!
