SShhhhhhh! We're taking a break at the writers' conference. It's GREAT! But I feel like a pretender. They asked us to introduce ourselves at first, and said we could say anything, because nobody knows any better. (Uh-oh, grin.)
So I said, "I'm Patience Renzulli, and my debut novel just made it to 23rd on the NYTimes Bestseller's List."
Everyone's eyes sharpened and their mouths made little o's.
And then we all laughed!
hug your hounds and mine for me
