Kyra Before the Conference!

This my last post before WIFYR. (

Is everyone excited?! I know I am. I’ve been looking forward to this for a few weeks now. But good news, we still have a few more days to sign up, and still some classes that have some seats left.
Sign up now if you haven’t. If you have, post about it on your blogs, facebooks and tweets. The more the merrier!

I’ve re-written and re-written my novel for the past couple months just getting ready for this week and I know you guys have, too.

Who are you all looking forward to meeting? Listening to speak? Getting a book signed from?
Cynthia? I think my first interview I ever did for this blog was for her book, ETERNAL. I’m excited to actually meet her in real life. (Apparently I already have, but I don’t remember because it was years and years ago.)
