The summer took me to the small town of Kinmount up near my family's cottage for a Family Fun Fest. I met some wonderful people there, and hopefully will have discovered a few new fans of the Anandrian Series. I also spent a lovely evening down at the Barton Street Library in Hamilton. It was a casual evening where I got to talk to a number of people. As I was packing up at the library, the last person I spoke to was a psychic who frequents the branch. She was impressed with my daughter's artwork on the covers of my books (see the attached photo of Laura holding up her original drawing next to my book, Destiny Calls), AND she said she had a good feeling about my books. She believes that they will be made into movies one day - fingers crossed!
I have to admit that work on book 4, Twisted Destiny, has been going slowly. There have been several distractions that have occupied my attention. First, I began rereading the vampire series by Kerrilyn Sparks, then I entered a short story competition sponsored by the CBC, and I hosted four practice sessions for the ukulele band that I play in, in my backyard.
Just this week, I have been invited to a book fair in November (more information to follow), and I have been asked to write a column in a local newspaper about my writing/publishing experience (to be published in November - again, more info to follow).
The goal this week, is to reread what I have written, do some editing, then carry on with Twisted Destiny. Ideas have been swirling around inside my head, and I think the story should be an interesting one once I get pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard (depending upon my mood).
