I have two books out in the last year, Ian’s Magic, a middle grade chapter book for ages 7-10 (Published by Doodle and Peck) and Strawberry Sundae Delights, (Published by The Wild Rose Press) a Sandhill Island novella. The novella is e-published alone or in an anthology with two others titled Taste of Danger. They are part of the One Scoop or Two series available at The Wild Rose Press website (http://thewildrosepress.com). The stand-alone books are both available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. This week, I signed a contract with The Wild Rose Press for Blooming Greed, the second in the Keystone Lake series. Edits begin the end of March. It will probably hit the shelves within the year.
I’d love to begin having some book signings to show you what I’ve been working on. I was asked by The Enid Railroad Museum to have a book signing at their new children’s caboose in April. I don’t have details on that yet. I hope to set up for Enid’s Comicon August 7 & 8.
The OWFI writers’ conference in May has become virtual this year. Last year it was cancelled. This is a step up. Maybe by next year it will be back to normal. It seems that virus numbers are heading down, though it is hard to tell the way the numbers are counted. But I got my vaccine and I know others are too. It has got to help create some heard immunity.
Spring is 13 days away! I set up a fun weekend with the Texas cousins in May and maybe things are getting back to normal. The weather the last few days has been fabulous. The Enid Public Library had a ribbon cutting for their new Seed Library. It is a free service where seeds are traded. You can take what you want for free, and they love your donations. The Friends of the Library and the Master Gardener’s Association have planted a pollinator garden on the east side of their building. Check it out.
I bought a copy of the new Stephen King novel, Later, and as usual, I love it. I am addicted to King even though I get irritated at him sometimes. I still go back for more.
Virus numbers are down, and the temperatures are coming up. I see a ray of hope.
What are you reading this week?
