The answer is 'no!' Last Saturday, I had one of the most un-typical days a writer can encounter. For the first time in a long time, I wasn't buried under stacks of paper, trying to fight to keep my eyes open to finish just one more scene...zzzzz.:)
No, last Saturday I had an author photoshoot with a local company Photo Junkies. Andrew and Kelty were amazing, but the fun started early in the day.
Manicure, pedicure, hair and makeup-a full day of pampering. Believe me this happens....um...NEVER! :) I mean, I won't lie, I did do edits on a new submission while sitting in the chairs, but at least it was somewhat relaxing lol.
Then, I met them in Sherwood Park and we hit the highway...About twenty-five minutes later we pulled off to the side near a big field-with absolutely nothing except the book props I brought along.
It was so much fun and they were amazing to work with. If you haven't had this experience, I highly recommend it. For $125.00, they made this deadline-exhausted, mom of a sick up all night toddler look not half bad lol:)
I may not get this opportunity again for a long time...if ever, but it was a nice perk of being a writer!
