I have to take a few sick days this week. Unfortunately, that means I have to cancel my appearance at the NELA Conference in the Sisters In Crime booth on October 26.
I thought I could do it up until Sunday morning when I woke up with chest tightness, congestion, a pounding headache, sore throat, dry cough, and my personal favorite dizziness.
I somehow thought two cups of green tea would be the cure all. When that didn’t work, I slathered up my neck and chest with Tiger Balm.
Finally I had to admit it. I can’t drive, especially not 7 hours to and from the event when I’m like this. So I emailed the organizer. I hate canceling, but I can’t do it.
I also have to be at Killer Nashville at the end of the week, so I’m battening down the hatches for a few days until I leave for Nashville. Hoping I can get over the worst of this before I go. This is my third time attending Killer Nashville because it is one of my all time favorite writing conferences.
Here’s my schedule at Killer Nashville. Please feel free to chat with me or ask for a signed book at any time. I don’t bite. Well, not since that Monopoly incident when I was 18.
October 29 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00p.m. at the wine tasting event.
October 30 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. panelist on the “What’s Your Genre?” panel
I will be signing books and chatting with readers after the panel ends.
October 31 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. at my author table signing copies of my book, sharing freebies, & giving away cool prizes.
Stop by to enter to win prizes and get freebies.
I haven’t decided which panels I’m attending yet. I like to save that for the plane ride. Gives me a nice way to pass an hour or two. 🙂
