It sounds wonderful. Absolutely. and your blog looks great. I've noticed several authors changing up their blogs. Did you pick up some tips at conference?

Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog! It was a big trial and error thing I undertook a couple of weeks ago. I am not so great with html and after losing several things, like my blog/friend list, I'm amazed I came out with anything coherent.

I picked up some great tips at the conference. Hope to post them soon.

Sushi next year? You bet--I'll add you to the list. Looking forward to it!
