Lots of Good Stuff
I turned in three guest posts to the Berkley publicist to use in promoting the release of KNOT GUILTY and the papeback edition of FOR BETTER OR WORSTED. I have one more guest post to write for Dru’s Musings and I’m done.
At the same time, my editor sent me the cover copy for the next Yarn Retreat mystery, Wound Up in Murder. It is always fun to see what the clever crew that does cover copy comes up with. Also included were snippets of reviews. I never keep up with reviews of my books and it was nice surprise to see all the good ones.
I had more good news from my agent. The Mystery Guild Book Club is going to have KNOT GUILTY as their featured alternative. I remember belonging to the Mystery Guild Book Club and I never dreamed that someday they’d be offering a book I wrote.
This Saturday I’m going to be signing books from 1:00 to 1:30 at the Yarnosphere Yarn Show. It’s being held in Long Beach this year at ...... It’s grown a lot since their first year last year.
I guess I have been in La La land because until it hit October I kept thinking the release of KNOT GUILTY was a long way off. Now suddenly I realize it is coming out next month. I have to update my website, get bookmarks and try to do the newsletter I keep talking about doing.
Actually it isn’t so strange that I haven’t noticed the passage of time. It has been very warm and summer like, hardly what you think of for September. And now that’s it’s October, it got even hotter.
I just went to Costco and was shocked to see the Christmas stuff when I am just beginning to buy Halloween candy. We get hundreds of kids, so I don’t buy the candy all at the same time. I just start accumulating the giants bags every time I go to Costco.
The year is catching up with me and if I’m going to make Christmas presents I better get going. Also I need to get writing the next crochet book. I am in the synopsis stage now which means lots of notes and some research. So much to think about.
