Still Catching Up…


I know that I promised a long post, and it’s still coming.

Kids return to school tomorrow, details about the Conclave Journal Release Party (April 30 at Book Cellar) are on the way, reminder about the benefit at Sanfilipo for the Literary Hall of Fame also coming, as is an update about Casa del Lobos, and more.

It’s been a busy week of cleaning, sorting, killing ants, proofing, rediscovering treasures, and playing in the yard.

I had a nice breakfast at Svea’s this morning with a friend I haven’t seen in far too long, and before that I had some interesting story ideas occur to me in the shower (which of course I couldn’t develop because I was on my way to breakfast and already running late…but I did jot them down).

I am looking forward to this week to work on promotional materials for the Conclave Release Party (Sweetheart Molly Robison will be performing! And several writers will be reading!) I also cannot wait to get back into the S.C. (next book, nearly finished).

OK. More soon, hopefully tonight.
