Writing Prompt Wednesday #51: Book Fairs

Reading Weather? Perhaps Not!

I don’t know about you, but when we get into mid-October, I like things to be cool. I’m done with 90 degree weather. Last week was perfect: cool mornings and evenings, warm days. A wonderful way to read in the early mornings with hot tea, and in the evenings to read with a mug of cocoa.

Reading Wrap-up: September ’16

Hello there,

I can’t believe it’s time for my monthly reading wrap-up already! They seem to come faster and faster as we move through the year. Fall came overnight here, and we are now in the 50s at night and 70s in the day. Loving it! (The first day of fall, we were in the 90s!)

Writing Prompt Wednesday #42

Hello All,

I’ve been busy watching a couple webinars to help me get my book more readily acceptable for libraries. I am excited about what I’ve learned and will be busy over the next several weeks working on an updated version of Cookie Encounter (just adding category info for librarians). That’s what I’ve been up to lately.
