We have rented a house in the very beautiful and historic Algiers Point to hang our ball gowns until the masquerade ball. Making final plans for the long drive but with five romance writers, I am sure that it will be cars filled with books, clothes, shoes, and a lot of chatter..along with sleep as we take turns driving. We are going to play tourists on October 8th, then will be making our presence known at Octavia Books in Uptown New Orleans at 6:00 pm on October 9th. On October 10th we will be joining our good friend and fellow author Lacey Thorn as she co-hosts The Midnight Gala at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel.

I am fascinated with New Orleans. Not only is it the setting of my Vengeance series which will be releasing through Soul Mate Publishing but it is also the location of the last vacation I took with my daughters before they all started growing up and moving out. Steeped in history and mystery, there are so many things that I want to do while I am there. Visit the cemeteries, take a walk along Bourbon Street with a frothy, frozen Hurricane in hand, visit the voodoo shops, eat some fantastic Cajun food and hopefully find some alligator on a stick. I want to find some nice souvenirs to bring back for my lovely daughters and take a whole hell of a lot of pictures...which I will share on here along with a write up about the whole trip sometime after we return. I want to ride a streetcar and see the Garden District and perhaps take a chance at my luck at Harrah's Casino. Think I can fit it all in for the three and half short days we are going to be there? Please, everyone cross their fingers that the weather will be wonderful the entire time!
Well, it's late and I need to get busy on my newest book...it finally has a title...A Wing and A Prayer. It's a romantic comedy about a very bad girl and her equally bad guardian angel. See what happens when one tries to keep the other one out of trouble as they let down their hair in no other place but New Orleans! Watch for teasers over the next few weeks on my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/TeresaAKeefer
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend everyone and if you are in New Orleans between 10/8-11/2o15 look me up! And if you have any ideas of places we can check out, please leave me a message either here or on my Facebook page!
