Nailing down a teenager isn't easy! I had the artiste look at your wonderful suggestions. Rachel's favorites are:

Blue Monday - suggested by Mir

Confliction - suggested by Robin

Rachel will keep these two in mind as she continues to discern the message within her painting. LOL! Thank you to everyone for the suggestions.

Looks like Mir, Lynn, and Alison get books. (Yes, decided I'd throw one more in there.) Ladies, send me your address info so I can get those out to you.

Hope you all are having a great weekend. I'm in computer transition again. Hubby got this brilliant idea to sell my G5 Powermac and my Titanium Powerbook to condense to a Macbook Pro. The best part will be having one computer and not having to switch back and forth since my larger monitor (which I need for my design work) can plug into the new laptop. So, if you are in the market for a used, computer let me know.

On the more interesting side, Betsy St. Armant has just sold a book to The Wild Rose Press. Isn't that great news? I'm thrilled to death for this cute dynamo of talent.

Congratulations, Betsy!!!

And finally, I'm happy to announce the completion of Manna Reign, my latest manuscript. I can't tell you how good it felt to ship that thing to my agent Friday. That book has taken over a year to write because of research and other detours to add or edit the other two books I've written. I think this new one might have a shot at wearing a book jacket. We'll see...

It'll sell. You stretched yourself on this one. Tell your daughter I love the painting. I'd offer to buy it if I weren't broke all the time.

Dang, I'm so behind reading my feeds. I've got NaNo and just plain not feeling good making me lose out on my blog readings.

I missed the excitement! Poo.

BUT...while I'm here:

1. I'm glad "Blue Monday" was liked. Yay.

2. I can't find your email in my files. Can I have it?

3. YAY on finishing Manna Reign. Good luck with the editors who cross paths with it. :)

Mir<--going to bed now...
