Since my last post my life has been busy participating in my first Sizzle Party sponsored by my publisher Blushing Books where authors take over one of their Facebook pages for half hour slots and talk about their book, play games that provide prizes and have fun. My first time out went well, giving away a free copy of Awakening, and giving a reader the ability to name a character in one of my WIP books to be done after my trilogy is completed. The reader named a secondary character in Four Lovers & A Funeral which I will enjoy writing while I am in France next year. I am about to send the second book in the Choices trilogy to my publisher, and feel good about how Damon and Elizabeth begin to evolve from their extremes and come closer to meeting in the middle. Be sure to subscribe to receive updates in real time as their journey and the book evolves.
The title of this post is a clue in my musings about how I believe my website should evolve. I would like to collapse The Gathering Place and my Travelogue into one chronological feed called An Author’s Life as I believe that is what this blog is all about. Your comments are always appreciated.
My weekend began with breakfast in my hood with one of my best friends. Love the retro diner that has both inside and an outdoor space which is always busy in the summer. The owners have been there forever and when I went on our holiday on August 1st, the son and some long time employees were there with smiles and the usual fantastic service and food. They have wifi and never chase me out when I come to write. My only wish is that Toronto would, like France, allow Nanou to be with me.
Toronto Fashion Week is just around the corner. I will have to be more aware of my and Nanou’s wardrobe as the streets, cafes and restaurants in the village are filled with designers, celebrities, media, and tourists. A couple of years ago I was captured, unintentionally, by tourists and media wearing a large white hat, top and pants, huge round sun glasses, and a white scarf that the wind had wrapped across my lower face.
Live your best life, and believe that the best is yet to come.
Thank you for stopping by.
