So a couple of months ago I said I had some things to take care of and that I’d be away from social media for a while. What kept me so busy? For one thing, a short story anthology called Revolution, but more on that in a minute…
Not too far though. The new house is only twenty minutes by car from the old house. Which meant we pretty much moved ourselves and let me tell you that was a mighty big job after living in one place for 15 years. Lots of stuff. I had over twenty boxes full of books alone!
So here’s a peek at the front of our new house—
She’s a painted white brick French country beauty with a woods in the back. My dream home! I managed to get some ferns into big black urns and flowers into pots for the front porch before the heat of summer started in earnest, so she looks pretty spiffy!
So I’ve been painting walls, emptying boxes, putting stuff away and moving furniture ever since I wrote my last blog post. I haven’t been working on my next book much at all while I’ve been working on getting settled in, but I’m just about ready to shut myself into the writing cave. More on that the next time I post.
I did get some writing out there into the world in June — my short story titled Shattering Glass was voted into the Revolution Anthology put together by amazing Katie M. John and released at UtopiaCon 2016 in Nashville, Tennessee. It’s a fantastic anthology. I can’t recommend it enough!
Authors included in the Anthology are Jessie Campbell, Nooce Miller (yes, yours truly!), Christina Benjamin, Raye Wagner, Caroline A. Gill, Desira Fuqua, Tricia Moeller, and Kelly Risser, with a Foreward by Janet Wallace.
An event is going on this week on Facebook if you want to learn more about these wonderful authors. Here’s the link: 8 DAYS of Revolution
All proceeds from the sale of this anthology benefit Help Build A South African Library Foundation. Available as an ebook on Kindle or in Paperback on Amazon. Check it out!
So that’s it for now. I have some curtains that need hanging today, but I’ll be back to blogging and writing soon!
