Sunday Snippet: The Photo Dump Edition

It’s been a week, mes amis. Book release on Tuesday, promotion, promotion, promotion… and I capped off the week with a book signing at a local author event. In between the bookish stuff, I’ve been working on two editing gigs and helping with spring yard work. My brain and my body are pretty fried. I need a day of doing nothing and doing it well.

That day might be today. The sun is shining, temps in the mid-fifties are predicted, but the no wind, which means a walk with pal Mary will be in order for sure, and maybe Husband and I will take a drive out to see blossoming trees and a greening up landscape. I have some household tasks to get done, but I can be leisurely about those. A day of rest and leisure today.

The photo dump is book-event-related–the HEPL Author Fair yesterday was fun! Pal Minnie and I had a great time, although I missed dear Moe, my usual “PA,” who couldn’t be with me because she’s been sick. I sent her lots of get-well energy and accepted Minnie’s gracious offer to pinch hit. We laughed a lot, signed some books, met some great readers and authors, and then ended the day at a very cozy Mexican place for an early supper with bestie Liz, who was also at the event. She was at the Gal’s Guide to the Galaxy table to sign copies of their newest anthology, Nourish. Liz’s essay “The Rickrack Chronicles” took a second place medal in the anthology! All in all–a good day!

Gratitude for the week: Got revisions done on Cam and Harper’s book; Editor Sinclair gave the revised book a big thumbs-up and it’s now headed to the CE; had a good book signing; yard is looking green and gardens are showing green, too; I turned up on local TV with a little push for the author event, thanks to darling DIL (check out this link!).

Oh, and the Fresh Fiction contest is still happening for another 17 hours…check it out!

Stay well, stay safe, spread a little kindness–our world could use it, and most of all, mes amis, stay grateful!
