Thank you to my crit group

Last Friday, my crit group threw a little shindig to celebrate the upcoming release of The Revenant.

There was a pretty centerpiece featuring a photo of the Cherokee Female Seminary and other shiny things.

Revenant cookies!

And here's the entire gang -- standing are Kelly, Karen (who, despite appearances, is NOT wearing a basket on her head), Dee Dee, Brandi and Martha. Sitting are Shel, me and Lisa!

Thank you, my dear friends! I can't wait to do the same for you.

P.S. Go here to see Brandi Barnett's "party planner" perspective on the event. Could provide inspiration for your own "Novel Idea" parties!


  1. It was so much fun! Can't wait to attend one for everyone. Oh, and I already have ideas for your next book. So. fun.

    My only regret? I wish I'd had seconds of Lisa's amazing dinner. De-lish.

  2. Can't wait to attend one for everyone.

    I know! Who will be next, I wonder? So exciting!

    Lisa's dinner was so, so, so delicious. I kept thinking about for days afterwards.

  3. Each member's novel-in-progress is so different I'm giddy just thinking about the variety of party ideas.
