On Wednesday, I made a quick run down to Tybee to check on progress on my own personal fixer-upper, The Breeze Inn. While there I stayed in yet another luscious Mermaid Cottage. This one is called The Castaway, and it’s a Jane Coslick original. I felt as though I were living in a Key West fruit cocktail, with all those limes, turquoises and coral colors. Quite a treat when everything at home in Atlanta is cold and gray and chilly. The weather was warm enough to leave my coat in the car. But then it was right back to Atlanta to get ready for a business trip to New York. I’m flying up Sunday and if I can swing it, hope to get to a couple of Broadway plays before meeting with my editor and the marketing folks at HarperCollins. I’m a sap for musicals, so I’m hoping to catch a matinee and evening performance–would love to see WHITE CHRISTMAS and SOUTH PACIFIC. Don’t forget to stay tuned for next week’s giveaway details.
