A Lot Accomplished

Running our business on the road gives us a lot of freedom. We pretty much set our own schedule, we sometimes work hard for days in a row, then we take some time off to play or just relax. And since we’re not locked into a schedule, we don’t have to fight the weekend crowds when we do.

Yesterday was a busy day for both of us and we got a lot accomplished. The morning started out with the usual round of answering e-mails, checking the news to see who we’re at war with today and reading my favorite blogs. Then I sent out the link to the digital edition of the new issue of the Gypsy Journal to our subscribers.

While I was doing all of that, Miss Terry was busy with a mountain of paperwork, logging in all of the new subscriptions and renewals from readers who took advantage of our Holiday Special and catching up with the laundry she couldn’t do while the water was off at the campground. I’m sure she would have much rather been playing with her new loom.

I was getting pretty shaggy, so to avoid running afoul of the local leash laws, we decided it was time to cut my hair and trim my beard. Besides all of her other talents, Terry is also my barber, and she does a great job of it. It didn’t take her long to get me looking fit for civilized company again.

The afternoon was spent reviewing the first seven chapters of the audiobook version of Crazy Days in Big Lake, and like he always does, Bruce Miles did an excellent job of narrating it. We’re right on schedule for a release sometime in early to mid-December.

And since we’re on the subject of books, my last two, Big Lake Blizzard and Dog’s Run are still doing well in sales. Thank you for reading the books, leaving reviews, and telling your friends about them. I hope to have Dog’s Run out in print soon, as well as the e-book versions on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Since many of you have told me they appreciate hearing about free books from my author friends, I’ll share a few more today. First off is Trish Marie Dawson’s Young Adult fantasy Dying to Forget, which is #17 in its category on Amazon and has a 4½ (out of 5 stars) rating with 169 reviews. Then we have Girl Fights Back by Jacques Antoine, the story of a young lady martial arts expert taking on the bad guys. And if you like a blend of magic, mystery and terror, try James Rozoff’s The Amazing Morse.

And if that’s still not enough to keep you busy, Bad Nick has a new blog titled Where The Money Is. Check it out and leave a comment.

Thought For The Day – I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

  1. Nick, regarding your water pump. Mine started leaking at the beginning of our last trip at the end of July. I did a lot of research on the pump’s manufacturer’s web site. Had lots of models and figured out which one I wanted. Called the local RV dealership in Huntsville, AL. The new pump was $123 including tax. The model was Shure Flow by the same manufacturer. Problem. No Shure Flow was listed on their web site and none of their website listed models were available for sale at the RV shop. I guess keeping their web site current is not a requirement. But is sure confused me. The replacement was easy and the new pump was much quitter than the original. 2005 Fleetwood Terra.
    Our pump was under the bed and we found the leak because of a wet spot on the bedroom carpet. Unfortunately, wife had placed her memory’s photo album from last year’s trip to Alaska next to the compartment that housed the water pump. Some damage but still very usable, just not perfect. When I found the leaking water pump I noticed that there were signs it had been suffering a small leak for some time based on the amount of rust. I have never heard of checking your water pump periodically for early signs of failure but it is now on by checklist. Good luck with your water pump.

  2. Great post, Nick! WOOT for a trim and thanks for the shout out! 😀
