For the 6th year in a row, my dear friend Wayne Thomas Batson and I have covered upon a hotel and nearby pub in the Pennsylvania countryside for our self touted Writer’s Weekend Bootcamp Getaway Extravaganza (etc).

Needless to say, we both look forward to this outing every winter/spring, depending upon what specific weekend avails itself. It usually starts with hugging each other in the parking lot and yelling “DUDE!” loud that it makes any passers by extremely uncomfortable.

I’ve already pounded out two chapters, and need to dive back into the writing groove. More tomorrow on our progress as we aim to satisfy the thousands of Elves waiting for the third installment of The Berifnell Prophecies, due out this May. ch:

Oh yeah, and, I just finished re-reading Wayne’s pirate series, and noticed that Jack Bonnet’s ship was named after the pub where you guys like to meet! πŸ™‚

    Indeed! Although we’ve since changed watering holes as the former changed management. Sad, but the new digs is pretty amazing.

Sounds like I may have new books to read…aaron bought be a kindle fire, and I am flying through the stuff I’ve got. Seems easier to read from tht with little kids.

    Score! (Just don’t get distracted by all the games on that sucker!). Book should be out by May.

    I don’t play any of the games…aaron does sometimes. I have enough distractions without playing the games

When your two favourite authors get together, you know it’s going to be epic. πŸ˜€

    Christopher Hopper · 23 Mar ’12 at 11:27 pm

    Well isn’t that the kindest comment a writer could get!

    Gabe · 24 Mar ’12 at 12:07 pm

    I agree, Ciara

    Ciara · 24 Mar ’12 at 12:10 pm

    Well it IS true πŸ™‚
