Helen Gray said...

Honk! Honk!

Coffee's all set.

Looking forward to the party.


MaryC said...

Ohhhhh NYC is EXCITED! I was wondering why I heard fireworks earlier tonight!!!!

Can't wait to hear about your trip. :)

Nancy Kimball said...

Can't wait for the party on the the island tomorrow to celebrate Pam!
Actually, last night at the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, I kept stuffing my face with popcorn and watching Captain Jack traipsing around that island looking for those blasted chalices and wondering... where are the seeker huts? (Totally True LOL)

Tina Radcliffe said...

LOL, Nancy, that is a hoot!!

Thanks for the honks, Helen!!

See you guys in a week!! I am off.

Debra E. Marvin said...

Tina and Ruthy, can you tell me when you will be passing my way so I can at least stand on the side of the road and wave? Okay, so it's dangerous to stand on the side of the interstate, but for you?? anything.

I happened to have heard about this "THE CALL" and so I'm excited to see the date for the party. Wow!

Pepper said...

Congrats, Pam - WOOHOOO!
And all the other winners.

HAve loads of fun together, Ruthy and Tina. Wow! Wish I could be a fly on the wall during those conversations ;-)

Joanne Sher said...

Sooooooo excited about the party tomorrow. Will SO be here. WOOOWOOO to Pam!!

And congrats winners!

Audra Harders said...

Ruthy, Tina -- together? NYC will never be the same again!

Or for that matter, the entire state of New York, LOL!

Have a great trip, ladies and bring back lots of news!

Audra Harders said...

I got so wrapped up in the moment thinking about R & T's roadtrip, I completely forgot to congratulate the winners this week!!


Kav said...

Okay, I'm trying to grasp what the Book Expo America actually is. I don't find their website very helpful. Is it a trade show for booksellers? A conference for writers? A publishers' book display? A little of all of the above? In any case...has anyone called ahead to warn them at Tina and Ruthy are being let loose on them? :-)

Rose said...

Great way to start the week with a PARTY!!!!

Congratulations to all the winners.

Whitney said...

Congrats to all the winners!! Monday sounds like a blast, and I can't believe I get so excited when people I've never met win in writing contests, or sign their first contract. Tomorrow's all about you, Pam!

Tina and Ruthy-- drive safely and ENJOY!

See you all next week!


Pam Hillman said...


For mEEEE???

(In my best Steve Matin voice.)

Pam Hillman said...

Jan Drexler said...

Doesn't everyone else wish they were on that road trip with Ruthy and Tina? But then we'd miss Pam's party! I'm looking forward to the fun!

Ruth Logan Herne said...

Exploits of Ruth and Tina's Excellent Adventure will be posted on our blogs...

And OH MY STARS!!!!!!






Ruth Logan Herne said...

Teena has made it to Philly....

But will she make it UPSTATE????

Film at 11:00.

Melanie Dickerson said...

I was only a dollar away from guessing the Snoopy price! Rats!

I'm not sure how often I'll get to visit Seekerville this week. Lots going on. Besides the fact that we have a 2-yr-old living with us, it's also the last week of school, so there's Awards Day and class parties. But I'll stop in as often as I can!

Tina and Ruthy, I'm with you in my mind.

Linnette R Mullin said...

congrats, winners!!!

Debby Giusti said...

Debby Giusti said...

Have fun, Tina! Make sure Ruthy doesn't get into trouble.
