C.G. Blake is not only a nice man, and writes up thoughtful reviews on books (including Tender Graces, thank you CG!), but he has written a wonderful coming of age/family saga called Small Change. I so enjoyed his book. I’m waiting for him to write more about this family.
If you haven’t yet seen it, check out the Alcoa Bald Eagle live webcam, where you can watch a pair of eagles and their little ones–love this. “A pair of bald eagles joined the Alcoa Davenport community in Iowa in 2009. They built their 7-foot nest on our 400-acre facility in a tree near the Mississippi River. In the spring of 2010 they fledged a pair of eaglets and later that year we installed our first Eaglecam. We recently launched a new camera with improved video streaming. Employees and the community helped name the eagle pair Liberty and Justice.”
Since I will be at the Fairhope conference and leaving poor GMR and doggies in the little log house in the cove without me so that they will surely miss my chaoticnessnessess, I am typing this ahead of time, so hope you all checked out the beautiful Sharla’s authors on parade, where on Thursday (yesterday) the prize was a copy of my soon-to-be-released Family Graces. Can’t wait to see who won a copy! FG isn’t out yet, but will be this spring. While there, check out my good friend and colleague Sharla’s blog and news about her upcoming new release The Reason is You— my blurb of it is on the back, teeheehee! :-D It’s a kick-arse book, y’all. L O V E D it!
And, at Amy Nathan’s place I have donated a copy of a signed Tender Graces for her: Put On Your Fancy Hats! It’s Women’s Fiction Writers 1-Year Blogiversary Mega Book Giveaway! I adore Amy’s blog–check out her author series. She’s truly a supporter of authors, writers, women, and I appreciate her!
My friend (Hi Angie!) sent this video to me “of a very high speed camera. Watch his feathers in the last few seconds.”
There are more at Vurtrunner on YouTube.
I hope to have other posts up before I leave, but if not, I hope to be posting from Fairhope. Or a little of both. For now, I must get back to the galley proof of Family Graces, for right now it is not yet Friday-oh wait, it is Friday where you are sitting but right at this moment, back in time, where I am now sitting it is not Friday, but as you read this it is, but . . . — lawd! I have a headache! Have a wonderful weekend, y’allses!
