Because my latest Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery, Not as It Seems, is now with the publisher, I've been busy gearing up the promotion for it. As most authors know, planning for the promotion of any book should happen as soon as possible. Because I really like doing blog tours, I'm finding hosts for one now. I'm also looking for a place, or I should say places, for a book launch. I'd like to have one locally and another over on the coast, Morro Bay area, where this book is set.
I'm not sure if I'll have a character naming contest or not this time. It is always popular, but haven't decided.
And always, while I'm working on promotion for one book, I'm writing another--a Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery and it's moving along nicely.
As far as family, we've had several birthdays and a big celebration for middle daughter who has reached the big 60. Eldest daughter and hubby made it up here for the party.
Hubby and I and middle daughter headed over to Vegas for the 10th annual Public Safety Writers Association conference. There'll be more about that in future blog posts.
While in Vegas we visited my sister and hubby and got to see some of her offspring.
