I promise not to complain about the rapid passage of time–I know most people are thrilled when Friday rolls around, but I always think, Already??????
My most recent book, “A Creed in Stone Creek”, has sure been enjoying a wonderful run. My heartfelt thanks to all of you for helping to make this happen. First two weeks, #1 on the New York Times bestseller list (I’m framing those and Mom, your copies are in the mail), second two weeks, holding steady at #8. WOW.
I’ll be in Blue River, Texas today, where Clay McKettrick, son of Chloe and Jeb from “Secondhand Bride”, one of the original 3 books, is laying the groundwork for the future dynasty you read about in the McKettricks of Texas series, “Tate”, “Garrett”, and “Austin.” Like most McKettricks, Clay is a stubborn cowboy, and he’s left the Triple M behind to start up his own outfit.
Picked up a large roll of drawing paper yesterday, along with a dry-erase board. It’s time to lay out the streets of Parable, Montana, where I’ll be hanging out for the next six books. It’s important not to have buildings moving around during the series, trucks changing color, etc. There’s a lot to remember.
I plan to write all weekend, because I’m very close to finishing this book, but I know I’ll find some time to cook and make art, too.
It’s raining. I hope March showers bring April flowers, otherwise, we’re going to have to go through all of this again next month. Sigh.
Well, I guess that’s the news from the kitchen table. Have a great weekend.
