What’s Wonderful?

Yeah, there’s bad stuff in the world. It’s happening all the time.

There’s sadness and loss, tragedies and senseless acts of violence.

But, there are also so many wonderful things to discover and be thankful for every day.

Let me share what was wonderful for me yesterday.

There was this beautiful place where I enjoyed my lunch.

The gift of this homegrown tomato from a co-worker.

And the discovery of this memorial for someone I didn’t know well, but he worked at the same place as my sister did for many years. I remember he had such a beautiful smile.

When I saw this memorial, I was reminded of that smile.

Another wonderful, wonderful thing.

See the wonderful in every day.

Expect to find it and you will.

Here’s Proof!

Ready, get set, not yet…but close!

The proof copies for in Leather Chaps came in the mail today. Five people have agreed to review a copy and let me know if any last minute changes/fixes need to be made. Once I make those changes, the next book (and ebook) in the Jean and Rosie series will be published. I’m hoping this will happen by the end of next week!

Coming Soon

Wondering where I’ve been these days?

I’ve been working to get in Leather Chaps (Jean and Rosie Series Book 3) done. The story has been written and edited, and the cover has been created. I still have to typeset it, order some ARC copies and have a few readers look it over before publishing. Publication is still a few weeks away, so it’ll be available in July now (one month later than planned).

Until then, with my full-time job and other obligations as well, there’s just not enough time for writing blog posts. (Did you know that a simple blog post takes me a couple hours to write?)

The next post will probably be the announcement of the book release. It’s coming soon, though, so keep checking back!

FYI – It’s Bike Week in the Lakes Region! Here are some photos I took today at/around Laconia Harley Davidson in Meredith, NH.
