Busy, busy, busy!

Promoting is really time consuming.

Monday morning I went to town to deliver copies of Dispel the Mist to the Porterville Recorder newspaper and to the weekly newspaper, the Southern Sierra Messenger. I also took a copy to the librarian. They have a nice little display up with the poster I made for them about my appearance on Saturday on a bookshelf right as you enter. They also have a huge poster up by the front desk.

In the afternoon I wrote a recipe for a blog where my book will be reviewed and I will be doing another recipe for another blog. That blog owner wants a photo of my favorite recipe. If one comes out looking good, I'll take a picture and that'll be the one.

For the next few weeks I'm going to be busy.

This Saturday at 2 is my Porterville Library appearance, then on Sunday, from 1 to 4:30 I'm having a signing up here in Springville at Kirby Farms.

The following weekend is our Mitchell Family reunion (so far no Mitchells have ever shown up, but we all sprouted from the Mitchell family tree) in Barstow at the Holiday Inn Express. At 2 on that Saturday, I'm having a booksigning in the hotel. I suppose the majority of people who come will be those who are there at the reunion--relatives. However, I do have a good friends who lives fairly nearby who has promised to show.

October is busy too. I'll be having a blog tour, don't know the dates for all that as yet, but on the 4th I'll have a table at the Central Coast Book and Author Festival and I'll be talking about my publishing journey on a panel at 10 in the Library Community Room. The 17th and 18th is the Springville Apple Festival and I'll have a booth from 9 to 5 both days.

Not too much set for November and December, but I'm sure things will pick up.

And, I must begin a new Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery as I'm putting the finishing touches on my latest Rocky Bluff P.D. crime novel.

Believe it or not, I do have a life in between. I cook, do the laundry, and some cleaning, though I have a grandson who does the big stuff. I teach Sunday School when I'm home and go to church, I attend a weekly Bible study class. When we can we visit relatives and friends--in fact had breakfast with the my last living friend in the group I hung around with through grammar, junior and high school this past Sunday.

Good to know that everyone is busy. But it also sounds like you're getting a lot of writing/publicity done too. Good for you.
You are so lucky that you live near Porterville. I only drive through there once a year on my way to the Sequoia National Park. Good luck with your book sales
