Our Smitten Summit is finally here, and we girls are soooo happy to be together! The only mar on this week is Di can't be with us, and neither can our agent Karen Solem (shingles.) Di conserving her strength for the big surgery next Monday (it was postponed from yesterday because of insurance red tape to unravel) but she's here in spirit!
This house has to be seen to be believed. The pictures do NOT do it justice. You should see the master bathroom. Dave and I have the master and there is one of those rain showers in it (hugs) with jets all over the place. There's also a gigantic jetted tub and double sinks.
The entire house has gorgeous wood floors and it's decorated kind of rustic with bear things around. Kristin and Denise have one wing of the house with their own bathroom (Kristin took a bath first thing) and Natalie and Ami, our editors, will have the downstairs level all to themselves. it has a kitchenette and a room with a pool table down there as well as two bedrooms and a bathroom.
I'm playing the mom this week and brought in food. I enjoyed fixing the girls breakfast this morning. :) When our editors get here, we will brainstorm more Smitten books plus novels for each of us. Our publicist Katie Bond, marketing manager Andrea Lyons, and fiction publisher Daisy Hutton are coming tonight. Katie is cooking dinner for all of us, and she is going to LOVE the kitchen with Viking appliances! I've never seen a refrigerator that big.
So we're having a great retreat already. So what's your favorite getaway place? I'm giving away a bed-and-breakfast getaway on Facebook on August 23 so check out the details and hop on over to be eligible to win! https://www.facebook.com/events/369943576411022/
