Marvelous May

Well, as it turns out, April showers does indeed bring May flowers!

My yard is bursting with color. Which makes it pretty wonderful to sit outside and write. My favorite office is right on my deck. 

Inquiring minds want to know how my next book is coming along. This month I've been busy with poem selection. Hours and hours, page by page, poem by poem; it's a tedious process. I also have several beta readers providing macro editing, and so the process begins. It takes time, and I'm in no rush. To be honest, it's not my favorite part of being a writer. I'd like to write, and have someone snatch it all out of my head, and then voila, it's a book! I push forward.

So tell me, how was Poem in Your Pocket Day? Did you have fun sharing a piece with others? I would love to hear your feedback. I share every day on several social media sites, however it was fun to have one tucked in my pocket and ready to share with others. 

I want to thank all of you who took advantage of the special pricing last month on my books due to National Poetry Month! It was a pleasure learning your names, and writing a little something for you. Enjoy, and again, thank you. 

Earlier this month I participated in "Wenatchee's First Fridays" - A guided tour of Wenatchee's Arts Scene. We had so much fun! 

Wenatchee Book Co. is a beautiful treasure. A special thanks to AnaMaree and Payton for having me.

This weekend I will be attending the Write On the River Conference in Wenatchee WA. It's always a WONDERFUL time. I'm really looking forward to it. 

My fifth grand baby is getting closer to her arrival. I can't wait to meet Harlow Rain! We had a fabulous baby shower the end of April, and a photo shoot of the family the following day. Very excited!

My other granddaughters are heavily into volleyball and soccer, so I'm sure next months blog will host a few pictures of those activities. 

"Just keep reading, just keep reading, just keep reading" 

Until next time I wish you all the best!
