Yesterday afternoon I finished the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and then Terry spent several hours giving it a final proofing before I uploaded it to the printer’s web server last night. We have a few days to relax before it gets shipped back to us, so is it time to play yet? I sure hope so, I’ve been chained to my desk for too long.
I think today we’ll spend some time exploring Hilton Head Island. There’s no way we can be this close to a beach and not go check it out, right? Although it’s cooled down noticeably, so there probably won’t be many skimpy bikinis to see. Not that I’d notice anyway, being a married man and all.
We originally planned to be here at Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort for a week, but yesterday our hosts sent a message that they won’t be here until early November, so I think we’ll stay longer. I can’t think of a nicer place to hang out for a while, can you?
Anybody who knows me is well aware that I’m not a techy kind of guy, so my author friend Stephen Arseneault has been helping me tweak the keywords and categories for my books on Amazon and it has shown an immediate impact. Life is good! Thanks for all of your help Stephen. It’s much appreciated.
Well, it would be if I could get over my darned identity crisis and figure out who I really am. As another author pal of mine, Bobbi Holmes, who writes the popular Haunting Danielle mystery series, asks in her blog Will the real Nick Russell please stand up. Actually, I contacted this fellow last winter and tried to straighten up his misinformation, and as I wrote in a blog post then titled Delusions of Grandeur, he quickly put me in my place. I write fiction for a living, but you can’t make this stuff up!
Congratulations to Nancy Scigliano, this week’s winner of our drawing for an audiobook of Suzie O’Connell’s Mountain Angel. We had 83 entries in the drawing. Stay tuned, because another one starts soon.
Yesterday I got an e-mail about a new mobile app called GoMechanic, which is advertised to be able to find a dealership or mobile RV mechanic anywhere in the United States, within a (50) mile radius of where you are GPS located. The information with it says that there are over 10,000 service providers listed for everything from detailing to oil changes, tire replacement, window tinting, locksmithing, etc. It’s available free for Android and on iTunes. Check it out.
