OMG – An Email From Nora Roberts!
Omigod, omigod, omigod! I received an email from Nora Roberts! THE Nora Roberts. She of the hundreds of bestselling romance novels. The Grande Dame of Romance. SHE. Nora. THE Nora Roberts.
I saw her name in my email in-basket and, giddy, clicked it open. Her message said:
“Make it stop!!!! Nora.”
No, I haven’t been stalking her. She referred to the glitch at the RWA (Romance Writers of America) site whereby dozens of inconsequential emails were forwarded to unsuspecting recipients, of which she was one. I, too, received over 40 unintended forwards, and just like Nora, I wanted it to stop.
Wewanted it to stop. Me and Nora. We’re just the same!
Okay, okay. So, Nora intended her email to be read by the RWA webmaster. She did not want it to be forwarded along with all the other emails. But knowing that doesn’t change the fact that I got an email from Nora!
Me. Silly ‘ol me. Got an email. From Nora Roberts.
Here’s the best part. Now I know Nora Roberts’ email address! How cool is that? I think I may put her in my contacts list because, you know, she sent me an email.
Of course, if I get a computer virus that sends ads for Viagra to everyone in my contact list, then Nora will receive an unintended email from me. Regarding male enhancement. Although, considering the whole romance writing thing . . .
Okay, Lisa. Take a breath. Nora doesn’t know you exist.
But someday . . . someday . . . maybe . . .
Just call me ever hopeful –
