It's Been a While

Sorry that it's been a while since my last post.  I love to write, but blogging just isn't something I think about a lot so I tend to forget.  Anyway, it is officially summer!! I have never been so thankful. I am enjoying it as much as possible.  My husband and I went on a vacation to Tennessee and had a blast!  I have been spending my time at home reading, painting, and writing.  There is even some house cleaning and organizing going on since my magic wand is on the fritz. Anyone know of a good wand repairer? 😉

I am really close to having my next children's book written.  This one though has had a mind of it's own so I don't think I am going to publish this one as a picture book but as a chapter book, with a few  illustrations thrown in.  I mean come on, I cannot create a book and not create the illustrations that go with it.  As I'm writing it, the images just pop in my head.  I am going to have to be more creative this time because I am going to try to keep the images in black and white with possibly a little color mixed in in order to keep the cost of the book down and the file small.  My love of marine life is the inspiration for this book.  I will reveal more as the project progresses. 

The Fourth of July is in just a few days.  What all do you do to celebrate?  You can comment on my FB author page. Here you can also see some of my latest artwork, if you're interested. I tried to get the comment section here working but for some reason I had no luck.  Guess it wasn't meant to be.  I'm hoping my sisters get to make it in this holiday.  We always like to have a picnic together, then head on out to watch the fireworks display and back home to sit around the fire pit.  It's a day to remember how lucky we are, and to give thanks to those who fought and are still fighting for our independence.  

Okay, well that is the end for this time.  Those dishes are not going to wash themselves, and that book I'm reading isn't going to read itself....hmmmm choices....choices. Hahahaha 

Happy Summer and Happy Independence Day!  Hope to hear from ya on my fb page.
