PROMOTIONS, NEWS & UPDATES

Can't believe it's been 3 months since my last post. Much has happened that I won't go into now. 2017 has been a stressful year. While I am healing nicely from hip replacement surgery, ten days ago I fell backwards from the entrance to our RV and caught my ankle in the step. I torn three ligaments in my foot. And I was so close to walking without a limp! 

No sense crying over spilt milk. Focussing on what has been or hasn't been is never productive. Instead I'm reading your posts and learning all about your joys and accomplishments. Inspiring, yes. 


At IWSG, James Newcomb reveals his techniques for recording audiobooks. He has some great secrets to share.

While I was composing this post, I had three visitors. Apologies for taking the photo through a screened window. If I'd gone outside for a better shot, they would have bolted. 



The Twins' ears are huge!

Happy Writing and Reading, Everyone.
