…I love putting those together and meeting people that I normally only work with through cyberspace. Today I got to meet Rachel Overton and her twelve-year-old daughter, Caitlin. Many of you recognize Rachel’s name from your content reviews. She’s a great help to me in the Heartsong editing process. She also does proofreading for many of our books.
Rachel lives about two hours away from Barbour, and she and Caitlin drove down this morning to visit. I gave them the grand tour of the offices and warehouse, and then we had a nice lunch out with Annie, Becky, Connie, and Kelly. We had a great time chatting face-to-face about Barbour and Heartsong and life in general. (In the picture, from left to right are me, Annie, Rachel, Connie, and Caitlin. Becky took the picture, and Kelly was hiding.)
I’m glad Rachel lives close enough to come visit. Most of our freelancers and authors don’t. So…I think I should get to visit all those who are too far away to make a day trip to Barbour. Okay, mainly I just love to travel, but it would be great to visit all of you, too—in your “natural habitats.”
Who’s inviting me over? :)
