I have turned in some guest blogs that will be appearing in the next couple of weeks. I actually got my website BettyHechtman.com updated before the last minute and I heard my bookmarks are waiting to be picked up.
And in the midst of all this I got the contract for the fourth and fifth books in the Yarn Retreat Series.
KNOT GUILTY was fun to write. I took what I’d learned from going to a number of yarn shows and added some more trouble. I won’t name names, but some yarn shows are quite snobby when it comes to crocheters. They begrudgedly add a few crochet classes and some vendors that are crochet centric, but the focus on the show is knit, knit, knit. I am still astonished that there are many in the yarn world that look down on crochet.
FOR BETTER OR WORSTED starts off at a wedding with a lot of drama when the bride’s mother is found sitting in the wedding cake with a bloody knife. Of course both books have recipes and patterns.
I’m bringing candy and bookmarks to celebrate my release day to the panel which by the way is on How Writers Work and includes Joel Fox, Harley Jane Kozak, me and Patricia Smiley. It’s at 6:30 Tuesday, November 4 at the Agoura Hills Library, 29901 Ladyface Ct in Agoura Hills. I would love to see you.
