Riverwalk Festival

Tomorrow is the biggest Arts Festival in Milton, Florida and I will be marketing my books along the Blackwater River. The weather promises to be beautiful after a few days of doubt.Rain stopped late this afternoon and I gave a sigh of thanks.
I'm hoping the crowd will be readers looking for a local author(Sylvia Melvin) who has written the following:
Summer Guest- romance
Helena:Unwavering Courage- biography
Southern Sage:The Honorable Woodrow Melvin-biography
Death Behind the Dunes- Mystery

It's a two-day event so I'm going to be a tired puppy when it's over, but to me ,it's well worth it to know someone is reading a book I put my heart and soul into.

Spring Break

Have you ever wondered why "spring break time" goes so quickly? It seems like only yesterday I was composing my 'things to look forward accomplishing on my spring break list' when here it is Friday with half my chores finished and I go back to teaching on Monday!However, freshly laundered curtains do hang from sparkling windows that I scrubbed inside and out, a delicious smelling pumpkin pie sits on the counter and the leaves around the pool have been swept up and deposited over the fence. But the task I enjoyed most all week was working on my sequel to my mystery "Death Behind the Dunes". Every time I see the word count increase it gives me a thrill; yes, there is hope I'll complete "Death Beyond the Breakers" before summer.
