Mae Clair

LOL! I love that excerpt. It's nice to meet you, Elizabeth. If I ever make it to RT, hopefully, Donna and you will both be there to chaperon another newbie :)

Donna Cummings

Mae, I loved that excerpt too. I'm excited about reading the rest of the book soon. :)

I would LOVE to hang out with you, at RT, or anywhere. We'd all have a grand time, that's for sure!

Elizabeth Smith

It's nice to meet you too, Mae. I remember that RT conference vividly. I had no idea what possessed me to go without knowing anyone. Then at the cocktail party, I decided that I would speak to the next person to come though the door, and if she didn't speak back, I was going home. Fortunately, it was Donna. As wanna' be writers, we had lots to talk about! Hanging out at RT with you and Donna would be fun!

Donna Cummings

Elizabeth -- I didn't know that part! That's too perfect. Just goes to show you how some things happen because they are MEANT to. :) I remember thinking, several times during the travel portion of that trip, from WA to CO -- I must be insane. LOL But it was definitely, obviously, worth it.

We definitely need to have an RT "reunion", and we'll turn it into a writer's retreat, with all our new friends, like Mae. :)

Elizabeth Smith

Ok. I'll be Miss Hospitality--that way everyone will feel welcome! I think you should be in charge of the refreshments.

Donna Cummings

I can make coffee and pour wine! Other than that. . . we might want to put somebody else in charge of the FOOD portion of the refreshments. LOL

Kristi Rieger Campbell

Donna, I love that you're featuring Elizabeth Smith here today! I think I spent more time at her house in the 80's than I did in my own as her daughter was my best friend. I can't WAIT to read this book! I love the cover, and I love the author. And nice to meet you too, Donna! I can perfectly picture the scene at the writing convention - her home was just as inviting!

Donna Cummings

Kristi, thanks for stopping by! It's nice to meet you too. :)

I can imagine how inviting Elizabeth's home was -- and I'm envious you got to spend so much time there. I only got to meet her in person that one time, but I'm hoping we'll have another chance one of these days. :) It's been way too long since that convention!

Virginia Kelly

What a fun excerpt! Absolutely agree that the cover is wonderful. Hmm on "that" and "just." I spent a good bit of time yesterday deleting "just." Are either of you going to RT this year? I am--my very first. I hope I meet someone who's as lost as you were and, more importantly, as nice. :-)

Elizabeth Smith

Kristi, that's so sweet--we did have some great times when we were all together. Thanks for the kind words.

Elizabeth Smith

Virginia, wish I was going to RT., but not this year. You will have a great time, and I'm positive you will make lots of new friends: )

Patricia Potter

Great excerpt Can't wait to read it. It's at the top of my pile. Miss you a bunch.

Elizabeth Smith

Thank you, Pat. I'm so happy you stopped by Friday Friends.
Patricia Potter is the author of so many wonderful books, and one of the kindest, most generous people I know. I appreciate this so much.

Donna Cummings

Virginia, I *wish* I was going to RT -- I'd love to meet you in person, plus it's in one of my fave cities, New Orleans. We'll definitely have to get together some time! But Elizabeth is right--you'll meet lots of new friends, and fans too. :)

Donna Cummings

Patricia, thanks for stopping by! I remember reading several of your books and loving them. In fact, I'm pretty sure I have a few of them in my "keeper vault". :)

Donna Cummings

Elizabeth, this has been such a FUN visit! Thanks again for being my guest -- and let's have an RT reunion one of these days. It would be so much fun to catch up in person!

Felicia Sutton

Hi Elizabeth "aka Mom" I "j-u-s-t" want to say... I loved your book! This excerpt was so embarrassing and funny, I laughed out loud when I read it. Jack's personality is so cute... Okay ladies, let me say that I have witnessed the dust at her house first hand. Hello to Kristi !! It was so nice to see your post.

Donna Cummings

Felicia -- shhh! Don't give away the housekeeping secrets. LOL And the heroine in my current work-in-progress is named Felicia, so it feels strange to use it here! Thanks for stopping by. I think Jack's personality is cute too. I can't wait to read more of him. :)

Felicia Sutton

Hi Donna - I can't wait to read it! Great meeting you today :)

Michelle Amen

Hey Lady! So sorry that I missed the interview,but this has been a crazy week with closings. Mom was here, my Aunt from Omaha came in, etc. We got the books earlier in the week and I am too busy to JUST stop and read, LOL. 'Cause when I know that I'm getting ready to read a page-turner, can't put it down book, that's all I do, is read!!! So, I've saving it, by my bed, (if only just to dream, again, LMAO) for a rare day off. You are one of the best writers that I've read! And most wonderful, precious, special people I know! CANNOT wait to read it. Love you, Love you, Love you! Michelle

Kristi Rieger Campbell

Hi Felicia!!

Donna Cummings

Felicia, it was a treat meeting you too. I hope you'll like your namesake. She's one of my faves. :)

Michelle -- thanks for stopping by. I know exactly what you mean about having a page turner and not being able to stop reading. It's why I can't pick it up right now while trying to finish a book. But hey, what great motivation, right? LOL

Elizabeth Smith

Thanks to Donna for having me as her guest, and thanks and to everyone who stopped by. This has been so much fun. Thank you for all the kind words and great memories.

Donna Cummings

It was a treat to have you here, Elizabeth! And I'm glad you had so many friends stop by to see you. :)

Priscilla kai

So fun to read more about you! Love the excerpt and will start reading the book. Just finished with the art show so will have a little extra time now. I'll be in touch after I read the book! This is really exciting!!

Donna Cummings

Priscilla, thanks for stopping by! I'm intrigued about your mention of "art show" -- are you an artist? So many creatives in this world. :)

carolyn mcsparren

You look wonnderful and so does the book. You need to tell everyone about the illustrations you did for Malice--they are fabulous! You are so doggone talented. I wish you were still here with us instesad of there, but I don't blame you in the least. Great interview.
