Happy New Year, 2010
I am thankful to have made it through the Noughties, as the British say, and into Twenty Ten. I hope you, too, have a rosy outlook and hope for a better tomorrow. Obviously, I have not been blogging every day, as I had hoped I would. A lot is happening, however, which is the main reason I can't keep up with blogging. Yeah, yeah, blah, blah...Actually, I am very involved in completing my current novel A Wild Dream of Love, the sequel to A Chance to Say Yes, my first novel, which I am still actively promoting, by the way. I have several book signing events scheduled for this winter and spring. As I get the info together, I will post the whens and wheres. For example, I'll be signing at The Book Nook on Fort Myers Beach, Florida on January 23, 2010. Among other events, I also will be signing copies of my novel A Chance to Say Yes at the Southwest Florida Women's Expo in Northport, Florida, February 20, 2010. I'm taking a booth there with fellow ArcheBooks authors Sara Williams, Sandy Lender, and Jane Sutton. We are billing ourselves as The Arc-Angels. (Get it?) We're going to do readings from our books! Too much fun! Okay, wait, I need more details before I can mention more signings! Please stay tuned for further blog posts. Smile of the Day: Today I spoke by phone to one of my old grad school apartment-mates who lives in Spain. Her daughter found me on FaceBook and set up the phone call between me and her mother as a King's Day gift for her mom. What a lovely daughter! What a thoughtful thing to do! It was a nice holiday treat for me, too. I enjoyed catching up with my old friend from U Miami days. Fortune Cookie Lunch: Your power is in your ability to decide.
