Pandemics, atrocities, marches. Thankfully, we see some softening of hearts. Statues are removed. Schools discuss changing hurtful mascots. Folks of all races gather to march. Folks of all races gather across the world. We pray that maybe this time, we’ll see real change.
So far that hasn’t happened where common sense gun laws are concerned, but maybe with race relations, we’ve hit a turning point. God knows we need to hit a turning point. And when we think we can’t take one more death, one more issue getting voted down (The Senate couldn’t even pass an anti-lynching law for crying out loud!), we dig deep and keep on keeping on.
That’s what faith is all about. Believing in the possibility of things not seen. And so, we must keep the faith.
And life goes on.
I shared a couple of weeks ago that I was doing a Virtual Book Tour sponsored by Book Festival Network a part of Author’s Marketing Guild, LLC. There were five authors on the show, and we all wrote in a different genre. I’ve got the link to my part and hope you’ll find time to watch some of it. All told, it’s just shy of 15 minutes.
If you decide to watch, please ignore the bad sound/picture quality at the beginning. After several minutes, that improves. Of course, I’d like to redo it. It was live. I forgot to set my phone clock to keep track of time, and at one point, I sneak a peak at the clock which caused me to speed up, because I said stuff I hadn’t planned to. And in reading from the book, an extra “bong” jumps in. I just kept on going, but you’ll notice it. LOL
Hoping to make a trip to Galveston in mid-November for an in-person book signing. This promises to be lots of fun. It’s a combination Wine and Book Walk and some bottles of wine will have my book covers on them. Really hope this happens.
We canceled our trip to Red River in late July. Was hoping to have the 8th book, TAINTED set in Red River out by then, but it will be early fall. One more reason to hope the Galveston trip makes. No, I won’t put the book cover for TAINTED on the wine bottles. It just seems so wrong. LOL
Have you canceled any trips because of the pandemic? Do you sit glued to your TV screen watching the inspirational marches? (Yes, I know there was some looting at the beginning, but now it’s mostly peaceful.) How’s your weather in almost mid-June? We’ve already had temps in the 100s. with more coming next week. ☹ But Tuesday afternoon a cold front blew through, dropping temps by 10 degrees. Wednesday’s high was only 89, with gale force winds blowing. Quite enjoyable.
So, I hope you are well, staying in as much as possible, wearing a mask, and social distancing when you must leave the safety of your home. Love to hear from you.
