Auf Wiedersehen!

So I'm taking a mini hiatus until next Thursday because tomorrow I'm off to Zurich, Switzerland, for both business and pleasure. Who ever said you couldn't mix the two, huh? Ridiculous :o)

I'm meeting up with my sister, Allison, after three (two/four? lost track of time ...) long years of not seeing each other. And I'm also going to meet the team I work with at Education First. Absolutely lovely bunch of people over email. Let's hope I have the same reaction when I see them face-to-face! (hehe ... joke Joyce)

But before I go, let me say a big thanks to those who have, and will, be promoting Fabric while I'm away. Yesterday the lovely Theresa Milstein wrote a great post by giving it a personal touch, and Stephen Parrish put my announcement up on his blog too. Today, Hart Johnson, in the midst of her own busyness, posted my announcement as well. While I'm away, Kemari Howell, June Ash Moore, Jodi Cleghorn and Brittany Rose are helping spread the word. So thank you, all you wonderful bloggers! :o)

Have a great weekend and see ya next Thursday!


  1. Enjoy your trip and have a wonderful visit with your sister!

  2. Very envious, my husband and I love Switzerland, especially Zurich, such a beautiful city, isn't it. Have a great time with your sister.

  3. Die Schweiz is beautiful country. I'd love to go someday. Enjoy!

  4. Have a great time. Mixing some pleasure with the business is the only way to go.

  5. I just came over from Steve's blog to say that the cover on your book is gorgeous and I'm anxious to read!

    Have a great trip!

  6. Judge: And what is your profession in general?

    Accused: Poet-translator.

    Judge: Who recognized you as a poet? Who listed you in the ranks of poets?

    Accused: No one. Who listed me in the ranks of humanity?

    Have a lovely trip both healing and successful, Roland

  7. Have a beautiful time in Switzerland!

  8. Wow...I'm so jealous! Enjoy yourself! We'll watch your place while your gone. :)

  9. Enjoy your trip. I see you live in Athens. I was there two years ago. I hope conditions improve over there.

  13. Hope you're having a fabulous time!
