Which begins Saturday. Where did January go? If this is any indication of how time will fly this year, well, WOW.
To begin with on Monday, I’ll be teaching a 4-week course on Indie Publishing for the TCU Silver Frogs program for folks over 50. I taught it two years ago, but I’ve learned a bit since then, 😊 so have had to do some updates. I’m really looking forward to this. Once a teacher, always a teacher.
Along the same order, I’ll begin teaching an elder training class at church along with our minister. Again, I did this last year, but still preparation is involved.
My writing chapter’s contest is taking place at the same time. I agreed to judge two entries of the Great Expectations Contest, and the results are due not later than Feb. 24th. For me, judging is more than just one read of the 30 pages submitted. It takes me two or more times, plus taking time to write comments on the score sheet. Over the years, I’ve appreciated what I’ve learned from entering contests and feel it’s important to pay that forward.
I’m super excited to be attending again the Haltom City Public Library’s A Night of Romance on February 14 at 6:30. For several years the librarians and wonderful volunteers have sponsored a fun evening with wonderful authors, great food, and awesome readers. I usually put together a raffle basket for this event. Sometimes we read from one of our books. I love doing that, but it takes time to prepare. Anyway, if you’re in the area, hope you can come.
Some of the other authors who will attend: Jerrie Alexander, Glover Autrey, C. Marie Bowen, Kym Roberts, L.M Butler, Mia London, C. A. Szarek, Rarolyn Rae, Clover
And then I have to find time to work on Book 8. And I need to find a title. A subject for a blog post on another day. Y’all did great naming the series and the books in the series. 😊 So I hope you can come through a gain.
Heavy church work continues for several more months including teaching the circle lesson the second Tuesday of this month. We hope to be in the new church in late March. Lots to do between now and then.
Our boathouse/boatdock is making great progress. Think they’ll be finished in couple of weeks. It’s been fascinating to see the work.
This week I posted on the Sisterhood of Suspense blog. You might have seen it on Facebook, A Crisis of Conscience. If not here’s the link. https://sisterhoodofsuspense.com/2020/01/28/crisis-of-conscience/
How’s your month shaping up? Are you a big Valentine’s person? Love me a heart shaped box of those chocolates, but small please because I don’t have much control over how many I eat at a time. LOL Love to hear from you.
Don’t forget my three standalone books. Links on my website. 🙂
