Silence Dethroned

The reign of silence has finally ended! 

<Cue people rejoicing> 

During that long and difficult period several things happened. 

Firstly, my initial attempt to dethrone her was thwarted by her loyal sorcerers who cursed me with an illness that lasted for a month. Thankfully, I prevailed. You should have seen the look on her face when I showed up again. I should have brought a camera with me. Though...a camera would have probably ruined the intimidating look that I was going for. The main downside is that I got Quills sick too. He still refuses to talk to me. 

Secondly, I had the opportunity to go to the Smart Chicks Kick It tour in Montreal where I met Kelley Armstrong, Melissa Marr, Rachel Caine, Rosemary Clement-Moore, Melissa de la Cruz, Kami Garcia, and Margaret Stohl. It was fun thanks to these lovely ladies who have great senses of humor. The best part was getting a chance to talk to them during the signing. I liked that they were easy to talk to and didn't make you feel like they didn't have time to talk to you, since there were others in line. I would definitely go again. Oh, I almost forgot while I was waiting for the authors to arrive I decided to name the emcee Jean-Jacques, since I didn't know his name. I later found out his name is actually Mathieu.

Lastly, my books know how much I love books, so they decided to show me the love by dog piling on top of me. My room is flooded by books and I am currently reading five books simultaneously. I will have to finish them quickly, so the rest of my books don't feel neglected. Wow, I should win a prize for saying the word "books" five times in a single paragraph. 

And that pretty much sums things up.
