I hope 2019 so far has been good to you and yours. I’m busy these days working on the second part of Sophie’s story. We’re going to give her a wedding to remember, the social event of the season so to speak. If all goes well, I’m hoping to have it out by the end of the year.
I always plan to have my stories out before summer, but that seems to always be overreaching and overly optimistic on my part. You know what they say about best-laid plans and all that jazz. While I’m working hard to up my game and get more words in, it is still proving a challenge for me.
I have decided to give Kindle Unlimited a whirl. I’ve put both books into the program meaning that they will be exclusive to Amazon for the 90-day period. You can find them here: https://amzn.to/2uB0jHh. Depending on how things go, I may put them out wide again, or leave them in for a second round. Wish me luck.
What are your plans for the Easter holiday? Are you traveling to meet family or friends, or staying put and having everyone come to you? For most of the first decade or so of our marriage, we hosted all of the holidays here at our home, having a dozen or so of our closest family and friends join us. Now that everyone is scattered around the country and doing their own thing, with their new families, we have started to do more traveling on our own, though this year we are expecting to stay close to home and having a quiet holiday.
In the same vein of introducing you to our every growing zoo, here is a then and now of Mr. Frodo! We adopted him and his brother from a dear friend of ours. Out of a litter of four surviving kittens we fell in love with two of them and couldn’t agree on which to take, so we ended up with both of them.
Frodo started as the baldest runt to the longest haired boy that’s the biggest in our bunch. He was mostly bald at the beginning, up until a few months old. He had more hair sticking out of his toes than almost his whole body, so he reminded me of the little hobbit from Lord of the Rings.
So keeping in the new tradition of naming our kittens after book characters, it just stuck. Adorably fugly to beautiful.
My great reads for this month are:
