Writing Wednesday

Baby Carter

Happy Release Day Baby Carter

Dina is one of the first writers I connected with when I started blogging. That was 8oo+ posts ago. Since then we’ve actually met in real life and she is lovely.

I’m also a fan. I loved Baby Grand and Baby Bailino and have been anxiously awaiting the next book, Baby Carter. 

I highly recommend this series.

I’m wearing white every day…

Fall Reading

As of August 1st I’ve wanted to wear white every day, visit local parks, the beach and the hot dog and hamburger cravings are crazy. I’m such a summer person and I won’t give it up easily but I’m also a planner and it’s time to fill my fall book shelf. Normally I’m a scaredy cat but my #FallReading has to be scary or at least mysterious.

The first book in my #FallReading to be read pile is The Brown House. For me the title screams fall and scary and it’s based on a real house!

The End Is Near…

What is it about the fall that has me scrambling to finish everything I ever started and never finished? I know the answer is, because the end is near. The end of the year that is, and my goals are up there hanging on my office wall (the office I don’t write or work in) letting me know I’m about to fail.

I only set 10-goals for myself each New Year and I usually do pretty well, this year not so much. I’m going to give myself a pass and change up my plan a bit. In the mean time I will keep writing and moving forward. There is still plenty of time to catch up and there is all that writing fuel (candy) to look forward to this month.

Angel Bumps, Hello from Heaven…

Angel Bumps, Hello From Heaven I got to know Anne Bardsley in a Facebook Group we’re both members of and I know for sure I cannot wait to meet her in real life! We have so much in common and during a recent phone call I found out she grew up in Wayne, Pa. and I had been in Wayne that day for lunch. She lives in a Florida beach town now and plans to do only 3-things a day and one of them is to go to the beach! I’m looking forward to her coming ‘home’ for a few book signings. Anne gets up at 4:30 am while it’s peaceful and quiet (until she cracks herself up) to write in her sunroom.
