Yesterday started with the grandkids swarming in to give us hugs and kisses. Can you think of a better way to start the day? I sure can’t!
I’ve been working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, which has been a slow process because the kids love hanging out with us, and it’s hard to type with two little girls sitting on your lap. Not that I’m trying very hard to discourage them, of course.
As much as they love grandpa, I think the girls love their horses just as much. Here they are on Winchester, a very mellow guy who looks like he has some mule in him. For years my dad rode a mule named Tony on the border, and Dad always said he was smarter and more stable than any horse ever was. Personally, I don’t ride anything I can’t put gas in.
Yesterday was Destiny’s birthday and Terry spent most of the day making a cake and other goodies for her party, with a lot of help from Destiny and Hailey. You can see by her smile that she was having a great time.
And here’s the birthday girl with the finished product.
During the evening the girls decided it was time to decorate Grandpa. How do you like my new look? The things a grandpa does to make memories with the little ones!
Yesterday I had a telephone call from a young woman who is an Acquisitions Editor with Thomas & Mercer, Amazon’s imprint for mysteries and thrillers. She told me that they would like to republish one of my mystery novels, Dog’s Run, under their imprint. We talked about where they wanted to take the book and the marketing plan they had for it, and she made me an offer. I didn’t accept it, but agreed to look over the full proposal, which she will be sending me early next week.
Speaking of books, for an interesting view that integrates science and the Bible, check out Michael L. Dourson’s Messiah’s Star, which is at the introductory price of $2.99 for just a little bit longer.
And today my friend T.R. Harris released A Galaxy To Conquer, the final book in Part 2 of The Human Chronicles Saga. If you like science fiction you’ll love this book, in which all the great forces in the galaxy clash for one final, epic battle to determine who will come out on top. Don’t miss this exciting, final volume of The Human Chronicles Saga — one of the bestselling sci-fi series on Amazon for the past two years.
