Fall is in the air. I'm juggling the usual: getting kids ready for school, planning an early September birthday party, scheduling our annual apple picking trek, preparing for some upcoming religious holidays, catching up on board meeting minutes long overdue, setting up fall extra curriculars for the kids, scheduling doctors appointments galore, and trying to put my house in order after the summer free-for-all.
But all this fall energy is increased by my preparations for attending Romanticon 2011, the Ellora's Cave readers and authors convention at the end of September. I finally purchased my costumes for The Stone Age and Futuristic parties held Friday and Saturday nights. I'll let you pant with anticipation to find out how I'll be dressed. (Photos after the event of course.) I plan to dance my booty off at both parties.
And my new promotional buttons have arrived to tote with me to this shindig. Below is the proof of the button I had made for the event. It's a sequel to last years, "got boots?" button promo. This year I went with, "got cuffs?" You might sense a theme.
On the Friday of the conference I am one of the presenters for a fascinating seminar entitled BDSM from Top to Bottom. I'm talking about the concept of the power exchange and the different ways people include BDSM in their lives. Now I just have to get the presentation ready. But I'm wearing my black boots no matter what I present. The authors of the 1-800-DOM-help series at Ellora's Cave are hosting this event which will end with a rousing game of BDSM Jeopardy. A gift basket full of naughty goodies will be given away as a prize.
And finally on Sunday there will be a book fair to purchase autographed copies of your favorite EC books. I'm thrilled to be signing my first EC print book, Magician's Chains, along with cover flaps for the rest of my e-book titles. If you are ever in the Akron, Ohio area during the end of September/beginning of October, Romanticon is one rockin' conference to attend. I hear there will even be a pole dancing seminar this year along with a Burlesque stripping class. Education is very important (wink).
Fall is shaping up nicely. I hope your plans are equally as stimulating. It's pretty much guaranteed we will all be busy. That's just how fall goes. Be well everyone.
