It’s been a long road, getting from there to here.
Wow. I can’t believe I’m starting this post quoting the theme song from Star Trek: Enterprise, but it’s so true, so true! Simply getting from my last blog post to this one has taken way too long. Way, way too long. But there it is.
So, I’m excited to report I’ll be taking part in an October blog event courtesy of Melissa’s Eclectic Bookshelf. She’ll be celebrating all books witchy with her month-long There are Witches in the Air! blog event. I’ll be guest blogging at some point and offering a free e-book copy of The Flower Bowl Spell. Which, as you probably know, is a witchy kind of book.
- Met with my writing group. They critiqued my children’s chapter book. Good fun.
- Attended Amy Novesky’s children writers’ workshop at Book Passage. Quite helpful and encouraging. I determined that my book, while similar to many out there, has a fightin’ chance because the writing is good. So there.
- Revised a bit.
- Oh, and the big one was a reading I did for the Odd Mondays Series at Phoenix Books! That was really a treat. Some friends and strangers came out to this fantastic bookstore I love in San Francisco’s Noe Valley neighborhood. There was even a stealth celebrity appearance in the audience from Ruthann Lum McCunn, author of A Thousand Pieces of Gold. I was so honored she attended, as well as my friend Jeremy Adam Smith, author of The Daddy Shift and editor of several other non-fiction books. He also writes sci-fi and contemporary short stories. And can’t forget my pal the poet Melissa Stein and her beautiful award-winning collection Rough Honey. She was there too. Singer/songwriter Julie Dillon started us off with some original songs. What a fun night. Thank you to Judith Levy Sender and Ramon Sender for asking me to take part for the second time ever in Odd Mondays. Hugs all around.
