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