We Were So Lucky

Last Saturday Christmas on Main  took place as planned in downtown Benson, Arizona. The day was sunny and fairly warm, without a hint of rain. I didn’t set up my canopy because I figured the sun would feel good. The canopy of the woman next to me blew over, so it was a good decision. People seemed to like my books and I sold quite a few.

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.

Starting tomorrow and continuing into the end of February, I’ll be visiting several groups of grade school students to share songs, riddles and the books I’ve written.

Even though I have never had a bikini body, the shift from hot to cold weather dawned on me in these terms.
