You know the saying the best laid plans of mice and men statement, well, mine wasn’t even the best, I was not paying attention to the deadline!
The town of Belmont is referred to as Mt. Bell in my novels. Belmont was born as a small cotton mill town called Garibaldi. Each year there is a Garibaldifest, this year it will be May 4th. My plans were to announce my new book and have a booth in the festival. BUT, for the first time since I have been writing and ordering books, my order has been delayed.
I do not do public book signings because of my hearing. If I had gotten a booth it would put the onus on others to communicate, and I always feel a little guilty about that. People get frustrated trying to communicate with me and I understand, but then it frustrates me also.
The deadline for application for a booth is the 24th, just a day now, and my books are listed as ‘In Production’, with no delivery date. I put in a short order of 20 books that I should have had four days ago. Then I was going to order enough for the booth. But alas it seems I pushed the envelope too close. I have a mind set that is set in scripture, “All things will work together for good.”
So I am really not fussing, just airing my poor planning. I will take it as it comes.
BUT I am very enthused about this book. I like it and I cannot stop my mind of thinking about the next novel. I am presently working on a travel book, and will be doing more solid research on our trip across country.
But back to ‘Finally Love’, the reports I am getting show this to be the fastest off the starting line. Sales are good. I want to hear which character the readers like the best, I have my favorite. Bonnie has done a fantastic job of editing, and yes, she volunteered some good lines for the book as she went thru it. She raised the reading level above 8th grade. LOL.
I know these characters well now (I think) and it is hard to picture a novel without them.
Thanks for stopping by the log.
Comments: I read all comments, I seldom answer or comment back, but then some of you guys have a neat or witty comment that requires ATTENTION (LOL). Thanks to all of you who comment. Thanks to all who read and never comment. I get e-mails instead of comments from many. Thanks for those also.
