Apologies for Being a Day Late

I was supposed to have this written and posted for the 2nd. But I have excuses, a whole pile of them.

I spent last Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, working a book table at a Comic Con. Long days and few sales. Sixty thousand people there to look but not to buy. Sold half as many books as I did the year before. But it was interesting and I re-connected with a few old contacts.

Then, besides re-connecting with my wife, I had to get ready for last night. It was the monthly meeting of our writer’s workshop. Three readings plus the critiques. If you have never belonged to a workshop you should join one. Just be prepared to take the comments on your work with a grain of thought. I belong to a group where I’m the only fantasy writer. I bounce scenes off of them, I wouldn’t try and run an entire novel past them.

But they do buy my books.

Today I’m waiting to hear from a contractor who is supposed to look at replacing a section of eaves trough before winter clamps down on us. Expecting a cold one this year. And I have to get ready to take part in a literary festival next month an hour’s drive from here. Want to launch my latest book there that just made it into print, Alex in Wanderland.  But first I have to lay hands on a few copies.

I also suspect the wife is getting anxious to have some action on that list she has of things I keep putting off.

Must go now.


The Dark Lady Trilogy (Volume 1,2,3)
The Queen’s Pawn (Volume 1,2,3)
The Housetrap Chronicles (Volume 1 to 7)
Alex in Wanderland,
Knight’s Bridge
