The May long weekend has come and gone with it’s regular lake time antics. Anyone fancy a motorized barge complete with barbecue and dog. Looks like fun.
Alas, the weather was somewhat less lovely near the end of the weekend.
We spent the time gardening and enjoying our first real days of warmth. Me consulting the gardening maps and Bruce digging. Sounds like a nice division of labour, doesn’t it?
As we near the beginning of summer, I am so pleased to announce that the official work on the 4th book in the Crater Lake Series is done. The ebook for No Compass to Right is on pre-order through Amazon for release on June1st. A few days ago, I ordered the proof copy of the softcover. It is due to arrive in the first week of June. Fingers crossed, it will look as it should and I will be able to place a bulk order and start shuffling off copies of this new book to my list of waiting readers.
It feels strange to wake up and not have a long list of tasks related to No Compass to Right running through my mind. This book and I have been close buddies for four long months – creating, rewriting, editing, formatting and proof reading. It’s been quite a journey.
I plan now to take some time off. I’ll travel to visit kids and grandkids; I’ll putter in our garden; I’ll read novels written by other writers; I’ll enjoy posting on this blog and reading other blogs; and I’ll think about things unrelated to Crater Lake. In short, I’ll live my life and gather up new impressions and ideas for when the whole writing business starts up again.
Here’s hoping your May long weekend was as relaxing as mine.
Picture me sitting, sipping a coffee and reading a good book while the hummingbirds zip through the breezeway and the gentle breeze makes the chimes sway and sing.
