Book Round-up on the Farm is a writing milestone this year.
In spite of the many challenges the last nine months have brought to the farm, I just realized that I have launched three books in three different genres this year. Light the Fire, Book 5 of the Live Oak Series, Truth Wins, Book 3 of the Truth Series and Thirteen Nights of Luck, Book 3 of the Pippa Series.
Authors and Artists Expo sponsored by the Women’s Club in Live Oak
Added to the trio was a delightfully unexpected invitation to the first Authors & Artists Expo in Live Oak. I had to leave Farm at seven in the morning after zipping around in my camera ready clothes to feed the fish, the dogs and the donkeys. It was still dark enough to need the lights on the cart. Believe me when I tell you that donkeys do not like be awakened before dawn unless it is their idea. If I hadn’t already been wide eyed with the details of getting to the event without forgetting anything, their braying would have had done the trick.
The event was fun and I had to restock a couple of titles plus I had the added bonus of a reader who had bought copy of Caregiving: Real Life Answers.
She said it really helped her with her mother’s situation. The lady next to her who was considering buying a copy had a bunch of questions for both of us. Caregiving went home with her.
And then there was Hurricane Ian
The original track put it coming ashore close enough to my location that taking precautions was important. We got the farm hurricane ready with a constant eye on the storm. Fortunately, our area was spared but as we have all seen on the news the places in its path were scenes of destruction, loss and death.
The eventful year still has a quarter to go and I am beginning Book 6 of the Live Oak Series, Hidden Fire. The title may change by the time I finish. The characters will let me know if it works or not.
Another milestone in the making. This is book 48 overall. When I first started publishing, having five books sounded like an impossible dream. I haven’t lost the excitement of adding another story to the growing list.
