Word on the Street

An annual event in Canada that takes place on the same day in five or six cities all across Canada. With publishers, editors, booksellers, authors, literacy organizations and over 200,000 people in attendance, it was a great day.

Myself, a couple of other authors, and our publicist, rented a table for the event and set up shop to sell our books for the day. The morning was rainy and discouraging, but it cleared up somewhat by noon and although rain threatened, it mercifully stayed away for the rest of the day.

I sold fewer books than last year, but made some great contacts and bought some books from Harlequin that I'd been looking forward to reading. Gena Showalter's "The Stone Prince", being one of the books.

You'd wouldn't believe the people who come to this event with suitcases, on wheels no less, and backpacks that by the end of the day are stuffed with booksmarks, handouts, and books.

I think we'll make it an annual event. Of course, we have to keep up the tradition of renting the hotel room the night before and having a girl's night out. :-)


My husband's colour chart results

Or, rather, the results based on answers I gave from my point of view of his character. It will be interesting to see what he comes up with when he takes the test for himself. :-)

you are orange

Your dominant hues are red and yellow... most of what you do is motivated by your need to change things and have a good time, but you've been known to settle down and think out a situation, too. You tend to surprise people just when they're starting to feel like they've got you down.

Your saturation level is very high - you are all about getting things done. The world may think you work too hard but you have a lot to show for it, and it keeps you going. You shouldn't be afraid to lead people, because if you're doing it, it'll be done right.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

Personality colour chart

I found this link on Diana Peterfreund's site and thought I'd give it a try. This is how the computer, with all its cyber-wisdom, labelled me.

you are mediumorchid

Your dominant hues are red and blue. You're confident and like showing people new ideas. You play well with others and can be very influential if you want to be.

Your saturation level is medium - You're not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it's required of you. You probably don't think the world can change for you and don't want to spend too much effort trying to force it.

Your outlook on life is brighter than most people's. You like the idea of influencing things for the better and find hope in situations where others might give up. You're not exactly a bouncy sunshine but things in your world generally look up.
