What I've Been Thinking About

First, I never intended to write in my blog nearly everyday--but that's what I've been doing lately. Partly because I wrote two book reviews that I wanted to post, but other things come popping into my mind.

Because I'll have a new book in my Rocky Bluff P.D. series I've been thinking about ways to promote it. Of course once I have a copy of the cover, I'll be making business cards. I've been thinking about where to have a book launch in my town, and where it should be. Because the book is called, No Sanctuary and about two churches, two ministers and their wives, and murder, I'm toying with the idea of having it in the fellowship hall of my church. Of course this is dependent upon whether or not the pastor is willing. We'll see. Haven't broached the subject with him as yet.

I have an author friend who was once the pastor at our church (when he was very young with a wife and three little girls) and when he first began writing I helped him--almost every day. He moved, pastored another church, and then got into writing full time. He's done quite a few spiritually oriented books, but lately has branched out a bit. He co-authored Steven Baldwin's story, and Alec Baldwin's latest about his messy divorce, and he also wrote a mystery with Steven. I'm anxious to read the mystery.

Tomorrow I head to the Chowchilla Library at Kings Ave. and 3rd St., where I'll have my books for sale along with other authors from 10:30 to 2:30. I'm pretty much ready for that.

Next week will be taken up with preparations for Thanksgiving--though I'll not be cooking, we're headed for our youngest daughter's for the big feast.

I've got about four pending jobs for writing program designs for people desiring to go into the residential care business. Though it's not my favorite kind of writing, it does bring in money. The hardest part is getting these people to give me all the information I need to write the program. For some reason, they seem to think I can read their minds.

And that's what I've been thinking about.
