Whenever I give a seminar on writing or self-publishing, I always tell the audience that while it’s great to have the newest computer with all the bells and whistles, you just can’t beat having a strong Internet connection when you want to get online and research something for a book, and having your own writing […]

I’ve been getting a lot of questions from Gypsy Journal subscribers and blog readers, and while I try to answer all of them individually, I wanted to share some with the folks here today. Q. I know that you and Terry built a bus conversion and lived in it for quite some time before getting […]

As I wrote in Wednesday’s blog, according to PPL Motorhomes’ website, our Winnebago has been listed as Sale Pending for over a week. I got a call from the sales manager on Wednesday afternoon telling me that the buyers had their own mechanic come in and look the rig over, and that he was not […]

Nothing Yet

A couple of blog readers have asked me if PPL Motorhomes in Houston has finished with the sale of our Winnebago motorhome yet. You may remember that on Monday of last week, exactly two weeks after we dropped it off, they changed the online listing to Sale Pending. I waited a couple of days and […]

We have had a lot going on the last few days, so I thought I would bring you up to date on things in today’s blog. Terry finished the first proofreading and editing of Badge Bunny, and it is now in the hands of the second proofreader. Once she’s done and the corrections she suggested […]

I didn’t sleep well the night before and woke up feeling groggy yesterday morning, so it was a little after noon before I started writing. But I still managed to crank out another 5,500 words and finished Badge Bunny, the third book in my John Lee Quarrels mystery series. It came in at just over 79,000 […]

Getting Back To Normal

We have spent the last few days getting back into our normal routines here at home after being on the road so much lately. Somebody recently asked me how our first summer in Florida was, and I told them I didn’t know, because we spent so much of it out of town. We got home […]

With all the paperwork signed for putting our Winnebago motorhome on consignment at PPL Motorhomes in Houston, we were ready to get out of Dodge. Well, at least out of Houston. The directions we had been given to come to PPL had taken us into town on Interstate10 to the Interstate 610 Loop and then south […]

Although we are usually night owls, we have been working on changing our sleep schedule, getting to bed earlier and waking up earlier in the morning. So we were awake by 7:30 Monday morning, eager to get our Winnebago inspected and to do the consignment paperwork with PPL Motorhomes in Houston. PPL is very good […]

In yesterday’s blog I told you about last week’s fast trip to Texas to drop off our Winnebago Ultimate Advantage at PPL Motorhomes in Houston. I ended that blog by saying we were spending the night at Gulf Coast RV Resort in Beaumont. It was a nice campground, made even nicer by the fact that they have […]
