2016 Cultivating Gratitude: Grateful for the Heavener Runestone Park

sign-of-thor    This week I’m grateful to the Heavener Runestone Park, Park Manager Erin Bruesch, and staff.  I’ve been taken into the fold and they feel like family.  The Heavener Runestone Viking and Celtic Fest is once again upon us.  The festival is celebrated in spring and fall, the first full weekend of April and October each year.  I said I wasn’t going this fall, I didn’t have anything new to present, but they were insistent.  And you know, it is good to be wanted.

I sign copies of my book Glome’s Valley at the festival each year and I’m working on the sequel now.  I’d hoped to have it for this fall but three other books got in the way. But I will have one new thing to add to my table.  My friend Lorelei Sawtelle of the Oklahoma City Writers Club engraved some rocks for me.  Or maybe, Thor gave them to me. Whichever is the case, I have rocks with the sign of Thor to give away with the purchase of a book.

In Glome’s Valley (set at the runestone) Ethan was given a rock with the sign of Thor to protect him when he was alone in the valley.  He used it during the final battle to call for help, or maybe Sven did that with the app on his phone.  However it happened, Thor came to the aid of his friends. He too thought it was good to be wanted.

The electronic version of Glome’s Valley will be on sale for $.99 October 5-12 in honor of the festival.  If you can’t get there, buy the book electronically.  But we’d love to see you.  Come by and visit, I’ll be under the pavilion near the stage.

The festival is in Heavener, OK (near Poteau and the Talimena Drive).  Follow the signs.  It is over the railroad tracks, turn right and then left at the stop sign.  Parking will be easier with leaving your car at the bottom of the mountain and then transportation up to the festival.

I can’t wait to see you!

    Love the nod to Thor!

    Our weatherman is being as flaky as Oklahoma weather. We may need a hotel for Friday night. Do you have one you recommend in Enid? If the weather gets ugly, I don’t want to think about driving on Saturday morning
