A Final Farewell

Yesterday, an organization I’ve been involved with for five years closed it doors along with the publishing company that branched out from it – both the Fantasy and Science Fiction Network and Azure Fire Publishing. It has been an adventure and great learning experience working with the authors of the two groups and will forever be remembered. You can see the farewell notice on here. Thank you to all members past and current for making it a great run!

Busy Bee Over Here

The last month things have been so busy I haven’t posted a thing, for that I apologize. My goal is to get caught up and get my posts going again. Here’s what’s been happening… I finished one book – edits, cover, formatting… I’m just waiting for the proof copy to arrive before I can go any further. I have also finished the first draft of a different book and have started the edits for it. I have finished two shorts for anthology submissions – one for a publishing company in Australia (still waiting to hear back from them) and the other for an event I will be attending in March in Arlington, TX.  A longtime friend and I have joined up to start offering a local mini-con book event in a couple of years, so tons of brainstorming moments have happened there as well. The garden is being overhauled for the fall plants and I’ve done what I can in

Literary Love

This past weekend was the Literary Love Savannah book event in Savannah, GA. This was my first book convention and for three days I was non-stop going and it was a blast. We got into Savannah on Wednesday evening with the activities starting first thing Thursday morning. First, hubs and I took advantage of some free time and walked River Street and getting some dinner. I could give you an hour by hour recall but I’ll give you a brief rundown -2 signings, 2 lunches, 1 dinner, 1 costume ball, and several other things in between. Additionally after each evening we walked several miles along River Street. The best part of all this wasn’t the things we did but the people we spent time with. The readers were the best ever! These readers were friendly and wanted to hear about every story. They wanted to meet the authors and learn about them. They were the most interactive readers I’ve ever

Home Sweet… Georgia

I’ve been blessed to be able to go back to Georgia this last week for vacation and it was perfect, even with the numerous storms – which were random and fierce all at once. I flew into Savannah where my hubs picked me up and we had a great dinner at Ruby Tuesdays. Made some calls to let a few people know I was in town, sent a few messages and tried to start making plans to see people. Usually my daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids are the ones we see first but alas, they were vacationing in Florida so I had days before I’d see them. Quickly calling Ma and trying to get on her schedule, Johnny and I decided to take Sunday for ourselves and we did some exploring. We drove around Tybee Island looking for an elusive fishing spot, which remains elusive for us 🙂 The day was extremely hot and of course we decide we are going
