We have been busy and getting a lot of things accomplished. That’s a good thing, right? At least, I hope it is, because I would not want to be doing all of this work for nothing. I seldom drive my 1999 Ford F-150, though it’s a great truck and I love it. We purchased it […]

It Was A Very Good Day

When I offered to take Miss Terry out for dinner yesterday in honor of Mother’s Day, I already knew that she would tell me no. Terry doesn’t like a big fuss made over her, and her idea of a good day is to spend it at home with the people she loves. And it was […]

As I have mentioned a couple of times, a friend of mine was in the hospital for several days and I stopped in to visit him every day. He is feeing much better and was released Sunday evening. And Sunday night, after bringing him home, I came down with a nasty cold that’s really kicking […]

Another Birthday

Yesterday I wished our daughter-in-law Geli happy birthday, and today it’s my daughter Tiffany’s turn. I don’t know where the years went, because it seems like only last week that I was strapping my brand-new daughter into a car seat in the back of my brand-new Lincoln Town Car to take her home from the […]

Well, it took a few days longer than expected, but I think (hope) it was worth the wait. I got the manuscript back from my third and final proofreader yesterday morning, made the necessary corrections, and about 2 PM I uploaded it to Amazon. I never know when a book is going to go live […]

I have received a number of emails and messages wanting to know when my new John Lee Quarrels book, Sweet Tea And Jesus, will be out. It’s with the final proofreader and I expect to get back from her at any time. As soon as she does, I will make any final corrections she pointed […]

No Joke, It’s Done!

Hello all of you April foolers out there. What kind of shenanigans are you up to today? Putting salt in the sugar bowl. Maybe stretching saran wrap over the toilet. So many pranks and so little time. Joking around and having fun on April Fools’ Day is always a hoot, but I’m not fooling you […]

Binge Writing

I have been pushing hard, trying to get my new book Sweet Tea And Jesus finished, and doing a lot of binge writing to get it accomplished. Yesterday was a marathon writing day, I went at it pretty much nonstop and by the end of the day I had another 11,237 words under my belt. […]

#32? Is That Possible?

Miss Terry and my other proofreaders all went the extra mile, like they always do, and finished with my latest book, Strawberry Slugbug, Monday evening. So yesterday I went through the manuscript making their corrections and getting it formatted to publish. It’s always a crap shoot as to how long Amazon’s Kindle publishing program takes […]
