State of Nature, almost there

It's been a while since I've posted any updates so here is the latest. State of Nature was proof copy ordered Friday and received Saturday but I didn't make it to the post office in time to know it was there already (I love printing through because I get my books so quickly), so I had to run to post office this morning to pick up package. The first thing I noticed when I pulled the book out of the package is that the spine has the number 5 at the top instead of 6 (State of Nature is book six in the series). It has been a long, hard road getting this book out (I didn't really like the story, took forever to edit simple things that could've taken me just a few minutes to do; took me two or three times to upload the interior and/or full cover for whatever reason; now that I must reorder another proof copy, another delay). Once this copy is fixed up and I've resubmitted, I'm hoping to be able to do proof copy and approval very shortly afterwards.

I am heading to Columbia this coming Saturday for an event - Olympia Fest - so hope I do well with the crowd. Am not sure if I'll have prizes for the kids and let them play a game or not; will have to see how I feel Friday and how many prizes and what not I have available since I have some events coming up in May, June and July and August that I know I'll need to update my prizes for because of doing my "Writing Roads" workshop and one I'm actually doing my "Draw and Tell" workshop (that is easy - they get bookmarks they can color and their own booklet to draw their story - it's just the other workshop requires different prizes for the members of each team; am thinking of getting rid of the Halloween stuff I have left over from this past October. Will keep you posted.

Book #6...that's quite good, E! Keep up the good work and remember to give all of us frequent updates on your progress.

Good luck with your trip to Columbia, SC.

Thanks. I'd really like to say I was publishing book #16 by now - lol but alas, I'll take #6. Hoping this weekend to get some work done on book #7 because I'd like to get it done before too long. I'm not usually neglectful of updates but have been out of my mind crazy with work and other things. This is the busy season for me event wise - this Saturday, the 13th & 14th of May, 20-21 of May, 10-11 of June, 17-18 of June, 22-23 of July, at least four in August, and several throughout the remaining few months of the year. You can find more listings of my events on my website - -

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment - E :)
