Sera's book signing went off without too much of a hitch. There were some unexpecteds that happened, but none of them on my end of things. New Orleans was a smash, and with the auction of the baskets we raised just under $10,000.00 for Reading Tree.

I just sent them the certified check this morning, so they should be quite happy with the result. I've also spoken to Mr. Wysocki, who said he'll donate any damaged merchandise to them. It doesn't sound like much, but it beats him sending it back to the publishing house, and them tossing the books back into the landfill.

I've got some great pictures from the event. I've sent some away to get blown up for Gidget's shop, and they should be back any day now. One of the designers offered to cut out the backgrounds on the doubles for free, so that she'll have nice images of the dresses to put up on her shop wall.

Sera sent me a check to pay for the event, and I've still not cashed it yet. I was hosting the event in her honor, so it feels weird to take her money. I don't know if I should cash it. I mean, it would probably be rude not to, but at the same time it feels rude to do it. I think before I decide what to do with it, I'll call her and fuss. If she's absolutely adamant that I have it, then I'll cash it.

Before that, I've got to make another call. One I've been putting off since last Friday. I know Gidget informed her that Gabriel was back in the city, but I've got a lot more to report. Like Kostas showing up at the event.


Rolling my chair back from my desk, I settle my head down atop it for a moment. Mum and dad are coming up this next weekend, with the twins, so I can inform her then; or at the Coven meeting that Regina's sure to call to attempt to figure out what to do about Gabriel.

I feel like I'm betraying Bridget as I lift my head to make the call. It rings three times before I hear her voice on the other end of the line.

"Regina, I've got some information for you."


"I'm free for lunch this afternoon."


"That sounds fine. I'll meet you there in an hour."

I hang up the phone, taking a deep breath.

It's going to be a long day.
