MR. TOAD’S WILD RIDE OF WEATHER

Posted by straddleadmin on November 27, 2016

Yesterday (Saturday 11/26/16) the high was 69 degrees in our winter home of Sierra Vista, Arizona. Next Saturday (when I’m signed up for the outdoor Christmas on Main in Benson, Arizona), the projection is 44 degrees (!) and rain. Near as I can figure out, there’s neither a market for wet books nor an enticement to Arizona customers at that temperature even without rain.

Feeling Positive

Have been in Arizona a little over two weeks and have sold 202 books, 157 of which were copies of my newest book, The Cochise County Cat: A true Arizona Tale. Yippee! 

High Hopes About My First Book Launch Tomorrow.

Here’s hoping lots of the people, who were invited by postcard, who saw flyers various places or whose children brought home flyers from their schools, will show up tomorrow. It’ll be fun with the meet and greet, the sheriff reading the new book, the raffles and the refreshments. I’ll just say a few words to thank the people, who made the launch possible, and those who have supported my writing career with encouraging words and/or buying my books.

Right now emails are zinging back and forth between Michigan and Arizona. We are planning a Book Launch Open House in Sierra Vista to introduce The Cochise County Cat: A True Arizona Tale to the people of Arizona. If all goes as hoped, the open house will be held at the Cochise College Library Commons on October 29, 2016.

This is one of the illustrations in my new book– COLORADO, THE FLYING HORSE: A TRUE ARIZONA STORY. It features a mustang, a helicopter and, as always, a happy ending.

TIRED AFTER THE FARMERS’ MARKET

I’m down to two copies of my first book in Arizona, maybe ten in Michigan. To publish or not to publish (again), that is the question.
