So, first, the part that matters. A couple cute pup photos to kick off the week the right way.
This is one of my favorites of the pup from when she was little:
And this is one from our recent adventure in Angel Fire, NM for Taos Toolbox 2017. I’m not sure it was the best idea to take the pup along (although I wouldn’t have gone if I couldn’t have brought her along), but it definitely kept me in shape. Pup insisted on hour-long hikes every day up and down the mountains. On this one she decided she needed to bring along her toy, too.
Because, you know, we all need our pink stuffed pig to keep us company when walking through the woods.
In other news, I just published CreateSpace for Beginners. I should be writing the next novel (because that’s where the bulk of my income is and if I want to keep doing this it would be wise to focus there), but…
I’m presenting at the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers conference this year. One of the presentations on common new writer mistakes draws from a book I already wrote. (The just re-titled Writing for Beginners.) But the other two, one on using ACX for audiobooks and one on formatting paperbacks using CreateSpace, were new content. And, me being me, I decided it couldn’t take all that much more effort to turn them into books.
The CreateSpace presentation is about an hour, but the book is probably three times as much content. Probably be the same story with the ACX book which means a couple more weeks before I get started on the next novel.
Ah well. Still not sure what I want to write next anyway. I may hate writing series but the thing I will say for it is at least you know what you have to write next…
