It’s been a while since the first post was created for The Rax Files, but now is a good time to post. First of all, I am thrilled because the first round of rewrites are complete for the next novel MY HUSBAND’S GIRLFRIEND. I’ll keep you posted on the happenings regarding this book and its release. All I can say is I really like this book; the characters are unforgettable. You’re going to want to choke their necks just like some of you felt about Tracey Davenport from MY DAUGHTER’S BOYFRIEND. It’s just a sexy, thought-provoking novel that explores many facets of an unusual marital relationship. I so hope you guys (and ladies) enjoy this novel.
In addition, I am very excited about the few appearances I’ll be making in 2005.
Here is the 2005 Cydney Rax Tour Schedule:
June 2-6, 2005
Book Expo America
Jacob Javits Convention Center
655 West 34th
New York, NY
Actually this conference is getting really strict in that you’re supposed to be an industry professional in order to attend. You just can’t walk off the street, pay the fee, and roll up in the joint. You gotta be either a librarian, a bookseller, an author, something that has to do with the industry. I have been to several Book Expos so far and they are lots of fun, if not exhausting due to all the walking around those huge convention centers. You learn a lot about the industry, you meet many fine authors, and you just have some good ole fun.
June 10-12, 2005

This will be interesting. Going and hanging out in the woods with nature. I don’t do that very often but from what I hear, this AmiGals event is off the chain.

I’ve heard nothing but good things about the National Book Club Conference, headed up by author Curtis Bunn. They have such a wonderful line-up of authors, that it’s overwhelming. I look forward to this event too. Atlanta is always a lot of fun and I’ll get to meet some folks that I’ve met via email but haven’t seen yet in person.
Hope to see some of you on the road this year….
Other than that I’m trying to count my blessings. I want to continue writing book after book and just building upon what’s already been established thus far in my career. Again, I must say thank you to all the wonderful, awesome, marvelous, encouraging supporters. You are the best!!
