Since we all need some good news right about now, here’s something fabulous that happened today: I found out that I was admitted as a contestant in the annual Bathing Beauties vintage swimsuit pageant in Galveston! I decided I just had to apply once I got my 1900 bathing suit. Here’s some information about the Beach Revue! I’ve always thought it’s a fun event, and a classic Galveston celebration, but this year is really special as the Bathing Beauties contest celebrates its 100 year anniversary. And also because my historical novel is set to come out this fall. I’m so excited about this!
