I’ve still got my head attached, but I think my brains are scrambled.
Thank goodness for planning calendars. It’s been a whirlwind of a week, and I’m loving it!
I’m a guest of Jill James, Romance Writer on her blog with a cover reveal and the first and only published excerpt from Bayou Bound. I hope you’ll check it out. Let me know what you think of the cover and…of Biloxi and Nick.

I’m headed to Isle of Palms for a writer’s retreat. How I managed to land a spot is still a mystery to me. House on the beach. Personal chef. Yoga and meditation to start each day. Silence for writing until mid-afternoon. There will be a few outings, like kayaking, shopping in Charleston, and a plantation visit. I’m going to write my heart out.
I’m coming home a day early so I won’t miss the Books Down South festival on Saturday, Oct. 26th. I’ll be signing along with forty other authors. I’m sharing a table with author, Marilyn Baron. There will be giveaways, so head over join in the fun! I’m making up a very special basket that someone’s going to win. It could be you!

Here’s the info: The event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26, and will be held at the former Rivers Elementary School on Sandy Creek Rd. in Fayetteville.
Then, I’m headed to Birmingham, Alabama for Southern Magic Reader’s Luncheon. I’m excited to be hosting an table as an author. It’s my first time. Each person at my table will receive a goody bag with very special, personally selected treasures. Shopping for the goodies has been fun. My current book, Bayou Born will be included in each bag. I also have a wonderful basket for the raffle. If you hurry, you might get a seat. Tickets are on sale until October 27th.
At my first conference after I moved to Georgia, the Southeastern Writer’s Association, I met an author who said repeatedly, “Writers write. Authors speak.” I’m taking that advice to heart. Now, back to my calendar. I’m checking everything twice to be sure I don’t miss anything.
