The blog has been pretty quiet lately with only 4 posts for the month of October. I know we’re not hearing from some of the writers because everyone is so busy, myself included. Let’s use this week (or however long it takes for everyone to chime in) to let inquiring minds know what we’ve been up to–writing related or otherwise. I’d especially like to hear from those Tsaba House writers who’ve been keeping a low profile lately.
In September I hosted a book launch for my first romance, The Ultimate Guide to Darcy Carter. Everyone who attended had a wonderful time. I’ve been working like crazy on my current WIP for the last couple of weeks, determined to have it polished and all the bugs worked out by the end of the year. This is my busy time of year with craft fairs too. I’ve mentioned this before, but it bears repeating. Check out the craft fairs and book fairs in your area and buy a spot where you can set up with your books. An autographed book makes a great gift and readers love meeting you in person.
This weekend was spent near Manchester, Ohio at the Old Thyme Herb & Craft Fair. An estimated crowd of 20,000 visitors from 4 neighboring states and beyond, descended on the beautiful hills of Southern Ohio for the fair. What a wonderful experience. Not only did I meet all kinds of interesting people, hear from faithful readers who were happy to meet me in person for the first time, and get reacquainted with old friends, I sold a lot of books. Couldn’t get any better!
I even set up two book signing events for next summer while at the fair.
Other than craft fairs and working on my new book, I am enjoying autumn and the magical leaf transformations outside my door. Occasionally I have to remind myself to slow down and enjoy the season. God is so good and has given me so many blessings I can’t afford to overlook during this busy season of my life.
Have a wonderful week, everyone. I can’t wait to see what you are up to.
