HOLY cow guess what Im doing?
#1
I am a paranormal romance smut aholic and I have some favorite authors. One of them happens to accepted a friend request a year ago. I have been hinting around at doing her nails if she ever comes to town.
I saw on her FB status she was staying at the Stanley and I made a joke about " oh sure, I see how it is, come to CO and dont call me". Well she messaged me that she and her assistant would love to have their nails done. SO I have plans to leave here and head down to Denver, she was attenting the RomCon ( romance convention) and I will be doing 2 fills, some nail art, and then drinks and dinner with this top 10 NYT best seller. I dont want to name drop until its all said and done. I think this is why we should put ourselves out there and make it known we love what we do.

Oh it works locally too. I went to the pharmacy and the tech had black nail polish, so I asked her what brand. Shellac she told me, then talked about it being her first time and how great they were. She looked at my id and said " hey were neighbors".. So I gave her a card with a neighbor discount for her next shellac removal and application. She called yesterday and I went to her home for her manicure. She says she will spread the word. Big Grin we had a really nice time.

OK going to get ready for an exciting day.

Drinks and dinner with a favorite author, AND you get to do nails too! How exciting for you. Also, would that be the same Stanley hotel that was the backdrop for Stephen King's, The Shinning? That is just a really cool opportunity for you.

come on, spill a title then, is it the author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood? OMG, I love that series!

@Cindy3, the Fever series is great, I'm still waiting for the final book to show up in a used book store. Ever since the e-readers came out, the newer books aren't coming in as fast... Sad

I had the best time with the one and only Jacquelyn Frank, author of the Night Walker series, and several more. I also was able to work on her very wonderful assistant. Jacki chose peppermint candy swirl art and her assistant Natalie chose pink and black corset nails with skeleton button. My pics are not clear, Sad but I will still upload when I get them off the camera. They both posted them to their facebook. It was a blast. After nails we went out for steak and laughs. If you have not read her books, I suggest them highly. Very very good. Her shadow dwellers are my favorites. They have never been done and boy are they done well. Big Grin

Wow! that is great news Sobeit, congrats to you.

I totally agree with this is why we should tell anybody and everybody that will listen :lol: that we do nails and we do nails well Big Grin you never know where this one encounter could lead, word of mouth advertising is the BEST type there is.

I hope this leads you to many great things with many great people.

Can't wait to see some pics.
