Literary Friday, ya’ll…

Well, after the fun of Bouchercon (did you follow my adventures on Instagram?) and the November elections (and yes, folks- looks like there will be a run-off in less than 3 weeks!) I am a wee bit tired this week. And then yesterday, I found out my niece swallowed a penny. I need a Hallmark movie and a large drink. 😉

ALSO… we’re under a freeze warning tonight and the temperatures are looking pretty chilly for part of next week. Brrrrrrrrrr….

1.ICYMI at Traveling With T: The Family Upstairs.

Leaving on a jet plane ✈️ to Dallas for #bouchercon2019! It’s my first time to be there & I’m so excited to see authors like @katemoretti1 @amyimpellizzeri @hankpryan & way more PLUS my book friends @k2reader @thenovellife @the__reading__beauty @candice_reads @thegeekyblogger. . . Shout out to @suzyapprovedbookreviews for helping to arrange a meet & greet with @crimebythebook + 2 of the authors she’s working with ( more on that later- but 1 of the authors has a book on the fall/winter @deepsouthmag reads list!) . . Also be still my heart because when I was checking out food options near @hyattdallas ( priorities, you know!) I saw that one of the bars makes Bellinis ( and if you followed my NYC adventures- you know I love a good Bellini!) . . On a more serious note: Today is the last day of October & breast cancer awareness month. Many of you know that my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier in 2019- and it was discovered because she went and had a mammogram- so ladies: SCHEDULE those mammograms. 👏 . . #genxbookstagrammers #bouchercon2019 #dallas #dallastexas #hyattregencydallas
