Yesterday was more of the same as I worked on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. Yeah, I know, it’s just the same old story, day after day. The good news is that I should be done by the end of the weekend, and we may be able to start having fun again! This working for a living really cuts into my playtime! 🙂
I did take an hour or so off yesterday to go into town with Miss Terry. We dropped off some orders at the post office, and then stopped at Winn Dixie for some groceries. It was a nice day, so while Terry was inside shopping, I sat outside in the Explorer with the windows down, reading on my Kindle and eavesdropping on the people in the parking lot ,as they stopped to greet folks they knew and exchanged holiday greetings, or a bit of gossip. Don’t you just love small towns?
I’ve always said that if you have lunch in a small town cafe and keep your ears open, by the time you’re finished eating, you’ll know who’s cheating on who, who got their truck repossessed, and who’s pregnant. Somebody once said people in small towns never use the turn signals in their cars, because everybody already knows where they’re going.
A couple of readers have written to ask if, now that my mystery Big Lake has taken off and I have a sequel almost finished, I will get tired of publishing the Gypsy Journal. Don’t worry about that, I know that I’ve got a pretty good gig going on here, and I’m not going anywhere. Who knows, Amazon could stop selling my books tomorrow, and then what would I do? I might have to actually work for a living! 🙂
Speaking of Big Lake, while the book sales have exceeded my wildest dreams, I have never been happy with the rather bland cover. Yesterday, Dale Roberts, another Kindle author whom I met online on Amazon’s Author and Publisher forum, offered to design a new cover for me. What do you think?
We’ve got less than two weeks left for our Holiday Two For One Subscription Offer, and a number of blog readers have taken advantage of the savings. So what are you waiting for? Everybody likes something for nothing, right?
It looks like the cold front has moved on out, and it’s supposed to start warming up over the next few days. Once I get the paper done, we want to take advantage of the good weather to clean out and rearrange our motorhome’s storage bays. Even after thirteen years of fulltiming, we still keep finding things we have been carrying around for way too long, and not used. So it’s time to do some sorting and discarding, something we seem to do every year. You’d think that eventually we’d be done with that once and for all, wouldn’t you? But somehow, new junk seems to slip in the bays from one side while we’re taking the old junk out on the other side of the Winnebago. How does that happen?
Thought For The Day – Don’t punish the people you will meet in the future for the actions of those from your past.
