Thank heavens Jen will be back to work soon! As Gloria pointed out, I did forget to announce last week’s winners. I’ll have to check and post the names tomorrow.
I fully intended to begin my new book today, but the fates were evidently against me. I switched on my computer, ready to begin, and fresh from a nice meditation under my pyramid, and was immediately met by a virtual (no pun intended) tsunami of pop-up advertising. After some detective work, and a great deal of frustration, I might add, I finally discovered that my security program had been shut down. I probably did that myself, but that doesn’t mean I have the vaguest idea how. (Have you guessed? I have a love/hate relationship with computers.) In any case, the experience certainly makes me appreciate firewalls, etc.
In other news, as they say on TV, the new contest begins today. There will be two winners, announced on Friday. All you have to do is make a comment–preferable a nice one, of course. Winners are chosen at random.
I’m listening to Christopher Buckley’s book, BUT ENOUGH ABOUT YOU. This is a collection of essays, and I am genuinely enjoying it. Over the weekend, I took in a novel called THE WISHING THREAD–the author’s name escapes me–a very fanciful story that kept me thoroughly entertained. I also made some artist trading cards–I can’t seem to help doing that–using dimensional paints (Ranger’s Liquid Pearls and Decoart Glass paint), going for a stained-glass look. So far, so good.
I’m happy to say that my new book, the start of the BRIDES OF BLISS COUNTY trilogy, THE MARRIAGE PACT, will be out soon–specifically on May 27.
That about covers it for today, my friends. More tomorrow.
