2016 CULTIVATING GRATITUDE: A Busy Season

GetAttachment    It’s spring!  Well, it felt like it yesterday even though the calendar said it wasn’t.  It is the beginning of a busy season for writers.  There are countless contests, conferences, festivals and book signings on the horizon.

I began my busy season yesterday at a New Ink book signing held at Full Circle Bookstore in Oklahoma City (http://fullcirclebooks.com).   If you’ve never visited this wonderful bookstore, you should.  It is located at 50 Penn Place and holds a café as well as books.  There always seems to be a chess game or two going on at the café and participants teach the art of the game.  The homey store has fireplaces, benches, sliding ladders and a children’s room complete with books to sit on the floor and read.  And yes, there is a room that is a full circle.  Pearl the Buffalo stands sentry out front and you must meet her.

I went with my friend Bobbie Mardis, author of The Triple Creek, who sat next to me and discussed writing and reading with the people who came by and visited our tables.  Bobbie’s book is a modern day fiction about a woman who inherits a ranch only to find out her family procured it by swindling the rightful owners.  Based on the Daws Act and the treachery that took place afterwards in Oklahoma it is a great read. Pick it up!

I am very grateful to have been invited to participate in the New Ink activities and can’t wait to return. Check out the Upcoming Events tab on this website for future activities.

What are you doing this spring?
