Doing Dallas - Wendy, Wendy, Wendy

See - I'm doing it!

I'm a bad little worker bee today. I'm supposed to go to work, but I'm just too exhausted to do it and on too much of a high. But I will interrupt this morning of sleep to do a quick post, then back to bed, then back to mega blogging.

One of the bestest thing about the conference was meeting, getting to know and spending time with Wendy, Sybil and Jane. I figure they each deserve their own post. Wendy - you're up first.

One of the most astonishing things about Wendy is she somehow escaped my Derek Craven radar. I spent the week asking if she had read such and such book and was surprised, amused and slightly horrified that she hadn't read them and I started a Wendy, Wendy, Wendy list. First off - SHE HASN'T READ DREAMING OF YOU!
One of the first reader blogs going and she hasn't read it. She promised me it would be her first book up when she got home, so everyone head over there and be sure to remind her of her promise. Tell her Kristie sent you. (boy it feels so good to link! It's so much easier on a computer I'm familiar with, no more hunting and pecking)
A list of other books contributing to the Wendy, Wendy, Wendy list
Ride the Fire by Pamela Clare
Lord of Scoundrels - Loretta Chase
Any Elizabeth Hoyt books
After the Night by Linda Howard
There's a whole bunch more but I really am tired and I'm headed back for more ZZZZ's (or what we would say here Zed's) soon.

Wendy really is a Super Librarian. She's a powerhouse as she orders fiction for 33 library's back in Orange County.
It didn't take long for me to appreciate her being so much taller than me. It made it so much easier to find her when I was looking for her.
I envied her that she didn't have to try and jump up to get into bed.
She didn't try and snuggle at night (at least with me) Wendy and I were bed mates - strictly platonic though.
She looks great in a black halter dress.
It was a thrill to meet her in person.

Well - I'm headed to my cozy little bed now but I'll be back later today.

'til later

She's awesome isn't she. Forget the books she hasn't read. What about her amazing recall of books, plots and authors? Oh, AND the really cool SL cape, let's not forget that.

I need to finish The Stranger by Elizabeth Lane - then Derek Craven is next. I found my copy last night while rummaging through my RubberMaid totes.....

You forgot Connor's Way by Laura Lee Guhrke. Haven't read that yet either - although I do own a copy (which is good since it's really hard-to-find!)

Okay, if Wendy admits to not liking Anne Stuart I'm going to black out!!

And read Ride The Fire as soon as you can get your hands on it. Off to bug Wendy at her place ;)

I noticed that Wendy's blog says she's reading Dreaming of You now - and I knew before I came over here that I was seeing your influence. LOL

And I can't believe she hasn't read Lord of Scoundrels and After the Night! Bad, bad Super Librarian!

Did Lisa tell you how proud she is that you're working to get people to read Derek's book? ;-)
