Mailbox Monday - Oct 28




Mailbox Monday is a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog.

Welcome back to Monday. I thought my schedule would loosen up a bit, but it didn't. A new listing, a charity event, showings, preparing for two closings this week, and blogging at the 4RV Reading, Writing, & Art News and the Christian Children's Authors blog did not allow for a lot of free time. Oh, I managed an open house, a company meeting where I won an Amazon gift card, an educational panel on crumbling concrete, two doctors appointments, and an oil change and tire rotation on the car too. Where did making supper and doing laundry get done? Who knows, but somehow it came together.

I'm so thrilled that one manuscript I was editing is now done. I can't wait to see this book hit the market. I'm glad to know the author is working on a sequel.

My mailbox held a few treasures this week. I love seasonal titles. No one needs to give me an excuse to read one of Karen White's books either. Challenge is I haven't read the previous two books in the Tradd Street series; so now I need to decide if I read this one anyway or go back and read the others first.





I was asked to give a reading of my book, A Christmas Kindness, at an upcoming Christmas event at a local church. I ordered 25 copies, but didn't want to go too crazy. The publisher is re-releasing the softcover next year under my married name (I used my maiden name on this one) and also is releasing a hardcover version in 2020. I'm working on the additional material for the hardcover right now.

That's it from my neck of the woods. How about you? Any seasonal offerings in your mailbox? It is definitely that time of year.
