While the last few days have been really tough in terms of watching the news and seeing the horrendous damage and stories, right at this moment, I am totally, totally excited!
You see, I am going to ARRC!! Yay!! And more importantly, there are going to be people I know there! I was hoping to catch up with Kat O and maybe Tez Miller who are online buddies, but there are going to be people I already know as well, and it is kind of funny how I found this out!
One of the things that ARRC have set up is a Lounge, where once you have registered you are given a link so that you can chat to other delegates who will be attending. Whenever I talk about work on here or elsewhere online, I tend to write something along the lines of "I work for a major church based charity" and leave it at that. The other night I was halfway through typing that when I thought, you know what, I am just going to say I work for who I work for. Next thing a message came through saying "I work for them too'. I looked at the name and had a total lightbulb moment when I thought...I know who that is!
So today, we have had a quick chat about the authors we like and the fact that we are going to ARRC and how exciting it all is!
She told me that I look like someone who reads Biographies and literature and that she is completely shocked that I am a romance reader, and whilst I am not surprised that she reads romance, I was totally surprised that she is a Paranormal romance devotee!
In the midst of all the bad news around, this little incident totally made my day and I can't wait to see her and her friend, who I also have met a few times in the past!
