I’ve been busy doing some book things and some family things. I hardly feel I have time to breath. (With all the ash falling from the sky, maybe I shouldn’t! Fortunately, we are getting some rain here in the PNW to wash away some of the ash from the fires.)
At the end of July I did a nice book signing at the PNWA Summer Conference Author party. Here’s my display. I was next to a thriller author. Loved his great covers!
Then at the end of August, I sat with several other authors from the Writers Cooperative of the Pacific Northwest at the Waterfront Book Festival, which happened to coincide with the Waterfront Arts Festival. It was a gorgeous day to sit out and enjoy the view. I only feel bad that during the time I stepped out for lunch, I missed several people who stopped by my table. If you stopped by to see me, I would love to hear from you, either in the comments or send me an e-mail. This was one of the nicest events I’ve done so far.
At the end of August, my family took a vacation to Yellowstone. I hadn’t been there to look around, since I was very young and my kids had never been. It was an incredible trip. No, we did not feed the bison, but we saw a lot of them and a lot of elk.
This week I celebrated a BIG birthday with a lot of good food, family and friends! As well as getting some gifts, I was able to play Book Fairy and I left two of my books around town for someone to find. I hope they enjoy them!
Finally, if you don’t have my book Space Tripping with the Shredded Orphans, you can pick up the e-book now on sale for a limited time for 99¢ on Amazon.
