Yesterday was such a lovely day. Debbie from Suburb Sanity and I walked along the street of a tourist town and gawed at all the shops and places to eat. There was a haunted house hawker who slipped up behind her and scared the bee-jawses out of her and I laughed me arse off....teeheeehee....haw! We had lunch at an Italian place and yapped until our yap boxes were all worn out. I know this about Debbie: she is passionate about reading and books; and, she is passionate about her family -- I respected that and I respected her...she's fun to be around as she is on her blog. Our two regrets were that we forgot to take a photo, and that we didn't get our "gooey treat" we'd said we wanted. Ah well, another time! I feel fortunate to have met her
*big grin* We vowed to get together again as soon as we can.
Today a guest arrives. I'm keeping this one under my hat for now, but I am looking forward to the visit. Since my book signing on the 17th, this will be the third blogger I have met! What are the odds of that? I met Kathleen of Katsoup at the signing, then Debbie of Suburb Sanity yesterday, and now another blogger will be visiting my little log house. How fortunate I feel to come to know such beautiful women in person.
Oh! if you can stand another thing about Tender Graces (yes, I am sick of talking about myself and my stuff - but when something happens, I can't help but share it -- lawd!) - I was interviewed by our little mountain paper -it's a print publication, but they put it online as well. Here's the link to the Interview. It was fun.
Beginning Monday, I am burying my head in VK2 -- and that means "I mean business now, Kat!" to myself from myself. I'll come by probably in the morning to my blog to say "hi!" but, that will be about it -- I will be living and breathing VK2 -- it must be done and I can't play around any longer. The manuscript simply needs a lot of work and all my attention, but I'm excited to get back to work - that's the great thing!
I've finally stopped going to Amazon (like I said I would days ago and didn't listen to myself) to see if there are new reviews or check rankings - the rankings thing is too confusing to me - how an author goes from like a 40 or 50,000 ranking and two days later is 200,000 ranking makes absolutely no sense to someone who doesn't understand the process one whit - *shrug* - so since I don't understand it, why bother looking at it? >HAW< - and, frankly, I get embarrassed asking people, "would you go put up a review on Amazon for me? teeheehee...blush teeheehee..." Best thing I can ever do is just Write The Next Book, as BB has said. So, there you go.....
later gators! Gonna finish my cuppa deep creek blend coffee and fix up the guest room with some flowers and fresh linens.
