My Voice Is Nearly Gone

July 18, 2009 | Karin's Blog | 5 comments


Now I have a low, sexy, raspy voice.  That’s what alcohol, cigarettes and talking nonstop will getcha. J


So, one more day.  On one hand, I can’t wait to get home.  I miss the hubster, the kids, my kitties and my little Shih-Tzus.  I miss my mother-in-law and father-in-law too.  I had dinner with my bro’ and sister-in-law last night.  It was good.  Now, I miss them. 


On the other hand, I’m really going to miss my peeps.  I’ve had another incredible conference.  Once again, I have not attended even one workshop. For me that’s not what conference is about.  For me it’s seeing my editor, my agent, my gf’s and playing matchmaker.  This con has been chock full of Karin pimpage.  I’m not going to go into details, but quite frankly, I have outdone myself this year in hooking up friends with agents and editors and believe it or not, initiating deals.  Yep.  I can honestly say I love that part of con almost as much as hanging out with my editor and agent. 


Yesterday, I had lunch with Joy, owner of Joyfully Reviewed, who I met at the Houston RT a few years ago (Joy, is, quite simply, Joyful!) anyhoo, we were talking about a lot of things, and as things are want to go, I will be hooking her up with someone I met on line a couple of months ago, who does really cool artwork, and well, I know those two crazy gals are going to do business together! 


This morning, actually it’s um, almost noon, I’m sitting here in bed, having finished breakfast (in bed) and feeling rested, happy and homesick. 


Tonight is the Rita and Golden Heart Awards.  I love the ceremony.  I love the anticipation for my friends.  Allison (Brennan) is up for like her fifth, and I hope for her this year she brings home the statue!  But, gfs Rocki (St. Claire) and Cindy (Gerard) are in the running too!  How can I not want them all to win??? 


You can check out later tonight for the winners.


I’m going to hop off now, have another cup of coffee, get a shower and mosey on down to pub and see what’s happening.  J


Ciao for now,






  1. Edie

    I’m rooting for Allison! I have so many friends up for RITAs and the GH. I want them all to win, but know it’s not possible, as some are competing against another. And I love it that you’re such a great matchmaker. 😎

  2. allison brennan

    We have a great line-up in RS and I’m happy whoever wins, and it’s my fourth nomination, not my fifth. I haven’t entered Susan Lucci status yet . . .

    Thanks Edie 🙂 . . .

  3. Jody

    If I am EVER nominated for ANYTHING, and you hear me say “I’m happy for whoever wins”…..I’M LYING.


  4. B.E. Sanderson

    Ever thought of becoming an agent? ;o)

    Ack. I love Allison’s and Roxanne’s books. It’s like when the Steelers play the Colts. I’ll be happy and bummed whoever gets the win.
