Round Robin Blog Fest August 24 2019

Happy August! Mine has been a busy summer between writing, editing, trips to Georgian Bay, and getting my youngest son ready for college in a week. Eeep!! Here we are ready for another episode of the Round Robin Blog Fest as we face the end of summer. It's only natural we write about Vacation and Travel... August 24, 2019 -- Post an excerpt from one of your books dealing with travel or vacation. I've been very blessed this summer. This has been my view for several weekends as I get to spend some time with my honey. Not only have I been able to put my feet up and relax, do some writing while I gaze at Lake Huron, and do some fossil hunting, I've also come across something that totally made me happy! Gilda's Log from my Gilda Wright Mystery Series!!! All it needs is to be further back on the beach. I won't complain. That is why my excerpt this month is from a novella I'd published a couple years ago that has since been taken out of p

Dog Days of Summer

                                                          I'm so grateful this summer that I've had lots of time to write and edit! Some days in the coffee shops, some days up at the lake... My latest work in progress, Written in Stone , is nearly ready. I'm in the editing stage right now and will give it one more good read before I send it off to a publisher in September. This one will be my first novel set in Canada on the shores of Georgian Bay. Fingers crossed it does well. I'm loving this book! I'm working behind the scenes on a newsletter which will appear this fall. I'll also be on a Mystery Panel at Orangeville Public Library on September 28 with 5 amazing ladies from the Crime Writers of Canada. It'll be a great time! In the meantime, I'm working all next weekend at an incredible performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream at Island Lake. I won't get a lot done writing wise, but it'll be fun to hang out with co-workers

A New Box Set and an Upcoming Event!

Happy August!         I hope you've all had time to enjoy the wonderful weather and take a break from the ordinary. I was lucky enough to get to go away for a week and enjoy the shores of Lake Huron, some beautiful sunsets and the company of my wonderful other half. I also spent time writing while he fished and puttered around on the property. Book #9:   I’m in the process of renaming and revising my Thistlewood Mystery. Why? Because I’m planning to publish it with my Canadian publisher and want to find a Canadian location! All of my books to date have been set in the U.S. which was supposedly an easier sell. While that may be true, I’ve decided to take a sharp turn North and am looking for a similar location to the one I wrote about A.J. Cadell for her new mysteries. This one will be released in early 2020! Book #10:   This one has a name, Dead Without Shame . Yup, Gilda Wright is back for Book 4! This time, she is grading for her Brown Belt in karate
