I’m happy to announce that in two weeks I will be flying back to my native country to participate in the first annual Oklahoma Book Festival on October 20 at the Boatyard in Oklahoma City. I’ll be talking about the Alafair Tucker Mystery series, and the new direction I’m taking in my writing. Check it out here: https://okbookfest2018.sched.com/info.
AND since I had to cancel a trip to speak at some Oklahoma libraries last August when My Beloved fell and broke his arm, I’m taking this opportunity to reschedule an event at the library in Woodward, Oklahoma, at noon on Thursday, October 18. We’re calling it the If at First You Don’t Succeed, Try Try Again Tour. Here’s the information on that: http://woodwardlibrary.okpls.org/category/author-visit/
Husband is out of his cast, the arm is functional, he can dress, write, and drive himself, and be left alone for long periods of time. So if you believe, Dear Reader, that the Universe hears your prayers, join me in asking that the Powers That Be keep Donald Koozer healthy and injury free for the foreseeable future.
In other news, it’s October at last and we’re having entire days where the temperature does not top 100º F! In fact, it’s been rainy. Very very rainy. The remnants of Hurricane Rosa decided to have a look at the Grand Canyon and passed through SoCal and Phoenix on her way, dumping over three inches of rain here. I heard on the news that as of October 2 this is already the rainiest October in Arizona since they began keeping records.
I have finished the first draft of the new book, but that doesn’t mean the book is finished. Now for draft number two through however many drafts it’s going to take! I’ll let you in on the plot, characters, title, etc., soon, once I know that my editor likes it.
