Off to New Orleans!

Tonight, I have a signing and presentation at the Lincoln Parish library at 6:30 p.m. Tomorrow, I must rise EARLY and get to New Orleans by 11:00 for another.  Then one that afternoon at the Assumption Parish Library, then two more signings in New Orleans. I’ll be staying with a friend in Assumption Parish, so I’m not sure if I’ll have access to the Internet or to a wireless system the whole weekend. Cell reception is likely not to be that great there either. I’m realizing how much of my writing work is dependent upon the Net these days. Personally, I’d rather not have to be online so much, but the fact is I’ll lose money if I’m not.

I’ve been so busy with my new writing vocation that I keep turning down invitations to go out etc., with friends. (it does feel good for it to not be an “avocation” anymore) I’m so self-absorbed these days that I’m sure many of my friends and acquaintances will either forget me or write me off. I’ve been writing and working like a fiend though. I have written two more children’s books and submitted them to my publisher. I’ll share more on that as I get word. Until next time.

I want to thank my friends and the staff at Pelican Publishing for the cards and the emailed notes of sympathy regarding the loss of my brother. It means more to me than you’ll ever know.
