RWA Indie Book Signing

It's official! Alexandra Haughton (that's me!) will be joining a bunch (!!!) of indie authors at the RWA Indie Book Signing on Thursday, July 14, 2016, from 3-4:30PM in San Diego. 

I'll be signing paperbacks of One Week in Hawaii and the super-duper barely a month old (at that time) The Last Plus One AND I'll have electronic download codes + swag. 

If you're going to RWA, put it on your handy-dandy calendar now...and if you're lucky Tamsen Parker and I might be sitting across the aisle from each other (wearing matching navy outfits). COME SAY HI.

(Something--anything!) Take Me Away...

I've just returned from a vacation that wasn't really a vacation at all. Whirlwind trips to AZ where you drive all day to get there--and then only spend two madcap days there--and drive all day to get back are exhausting.

Valentine's Rewind Blog Hop

I don't know about other writers, but I find that, after I type THE END a la Joan Wilder (The Joan Wilder), I don't really think about my characters much. While they've "spoken" to me--and through me--during the drafting and revision process, once I've told their story the best way I know how, it's over for me. I don't revisit them or think about them much. 

I must confess: sometimes, I have to go back and re-read my notes to remember, six months later, what their names are. (SORRY IF THAT KILLS THE MAGIC FOR YOU, BELOVED READERS.)

Which is to say, all of this made the prospect of agreeing to this Valentine's Rewind hop...a challenge. Until I remembered Kenna Madison, the much-maligned vapid heiress to a vast pencil fortune in ONE WEEK IN HAWAII. What made it even more challenging? The story came to me in first person. (That...never happens.)
