With Monday evening's arrival, I put the summer to bed one last time. School started yesterday and so far, so good. It sure seems to be easier than when the kids were in lower grades. Like most parents, I'm hoping it'll stay that way. My oldest is a senior - gulp - and he's getting his senior pictures taken and I'm having my author photos retaken the same day. Seems so strange to think of that. And exciting.
I have had a very busy writing summer. I had two full novels come out and contracted my 10th last Friday. I've also written another children's book, but haven't had a chance to polish and submit it yet. Tomorrow I'm going to Las Vegas for a writer's convention. I'm filled with nervous anxiety. I'm doing my first reading as an author. I read at mass all the time, but this is different and I hope I do okay.
Kathy from I Am a Reader, Not A Writer, interviewed me and reviewed my book, First Spring. Please click on the link and come by and get to know me a little bit better and you could win the book, too.
It's good to get back into a regular rhythm again. The topsy-turvey summer schedule had me frazzled a lot of days. The autumn leaves and a bumper crop of apples have my attention. It's my favorite season. What's on your autumn calendar?
I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
