Have you hugged a Librarian today? Okay, maybe not hugged one, but went into the library and smelled all the books? ahh….
Hi Dear Friends! I hope you’ll excuse me for the next – week, two weeks, three weeks, four?
First, I am down to the wire on Secret Graces. I want to get it to the publishers before I leave for Oregon. That means I have a little over a week to polish VK to the best I can get it . . . Lawd!
Angie Ledbetter and I (and our Managing Editor, Cynthia) are also working hard on Rose & Thorn. There are many ‘behind the scenes’ things that one never knows about when one hasn’t been a publishing editor. Some of it feels a little soul-sucking – like sending rejection letters. That goes against everything I am: a writer who has been there. But, I don’t want to get into all that again! lawd.
And then, I’ll be in Oregon for almost three weeks. Poor Good Man Roger will miss him some Kat. Teehee. (Or else he’ll be going “whoop whoop – house to myself, house to myyyysellllffff, h o u s e …to …my ….seellllllf; I’m having a pork party – bacon and ribs and more bacon – whoop!”)
So from now until January, I won’t be around visiting as much and my posts may be sporadic or re-posts from something else; however, it’s all for the good. A new book coming out, seeing my new granddaughter and my son and his wife (who I adore) on the holidays. I haven’t been with my son on the holidays in years. *smiling*
More pics of the sweet one. See y’all later!
