About Blogs and Other Things

One of the promo newsletters I subscribe to recommended always doing your blog before 9 a.m. If I did that, I would never get around to writing. If promo was all I did, I could follow all these suggestions about blogging, but what would I blog about if didn't write and have books to promote? Politics? Religion? I do mention both at times when I think it's relevant or I'm feeling passionate about something.

I feel quite proud of myself that I'm blogging nearly everyday, doing the blogs I'm committed to weekly (Stiletto Gang) and every two weeks (Make Mine Murder) and commenting on both those blogs.

Now, on to other things. Yesterday we took my youngest son and wife out to dinner for their 17th wedding anniversary. We went for Thai food--theirs and our favorite. Afterwards I went to my critique group arriving very early because I didn't want to go back home because I'd have had to turn right around and come back again. Fortunately, our hostess for the group and her husband are good friends and most hospitable.

We had a chance to visit before the rest of the group came. I'm nearly to the end of the Deputy Tempe Crabtree book I'm working on. At the same time, I'm starting a new Rocky Bluff P.D. which I'll be reading to the group next.

In the meantime, the latest Rocky Bluff P.D. is just about to be published. The cover is finished and I like it! Can't wait to have a copy of it so I can start posting it around. As soon as I know books are on the way, I'll plan my launch. Since the book is called No Sanctuary and about two churches, I'm having the launch in the fellowship hall of our church. Which makes it easier than some of the launches I've had, because I know what goes on there and what activities to avoid. I'm planning to have goodies to eat--including the smoked salmon my good friend, Katina sent me from Alaska.
