    I love this picture Diane…you look so pretty!!…I know how you’ve blogged about getting in touch with your characters and talking with them behing closed doors but I didn’t realize you had parties for them even when you first began writing!!…I LOVE IT!!…no wonder your people seem so real…you literally give them life!!
    I laughed out loud at the paper’s headline…you are really amazing, you know that?
    I hope your WIP has basically stayed the same since I know you love it as is…
    One more thing…may I come to your party?? (-O:

      Sure you can come to the party, Margo! Everyone’s invited.
      The work-in-progress is basically staying the same, but I’m still managing to make a zillion changes as I fiddle with a character or two.

    If you throw a party, I’ll be there in my imagination! What a fun idea!

    LOVE the photo of you!

      This is one of those photos that you hate at the time, but look back at years later and wish you’d appreciated the lack of wrinkles. 🙂

    I needed a chuckle today-been a couple of hard weeks. I love this…KEEPER is my favorite book by DC, so I guess it worked. In fact, it is the book that got me “hooked” on this author…it was rec. to my online bookclub by my friend, Renee…so women all over the country were reading the book and falling love with the story and the characters. I now own (I think) all of Diane’s books, and when I am stressed to the limit-I know I have said this before but it needs repeating–I go to my Diane shelf (shelves) and pick one…that helps me…I love love the trilogy…

    ‘DITTO’ Brenda!!…I discovered Diane with KEEPER OF THE LIGHT also and to this day it is my fav book of all time…I’ve read it at least 5 times over the years…I also have me ‘Diane Shelf’ and own all of her books…even tho I may have a stack of new books to read, I continually take a break from new ones and pull down a Diane book to that I must reread before going any further…especially while waiting on a new one from Diane. Can hardly wait for the reissues of BREAKING THE SILENCE and SUMMERS CHILD which have fabulous covers…will definitely buy those and reread and add to the shelf. (-O: (-O: (-O:

    I love the picture! This is the Diane Iremember! …though you really haven’t changed a bit since 1987 — except – your writing keeps getting better and better!
