This and That

It’s been a few days since I’ve posted.  Busy, busy, busy!  I told my husband the other day, “I’m rethinking my statement that ‘a busy Miriam is a happy Miriam.'”  But really, it is true.  I am happiest when I keep busy.  I don’t do well with too much down time.  So the busyness I have been experiencing is fun!

This weekend I did write!  YAY!  I got about 15 pages done and I’m hoping to get more done this coming  weekend.  I am really hoping/planning to be done with the rough draft of book 2 this month.  Then I can start revising books 2,3, and 4.  Unless book four has to be book six or seven.  See, the reason for that is because it happens in the summer.  I want to be able to pack several books into a year.  I never looked at Trixie Beldon mysteries the same way after I realized there had been 4 mysteries set at Christmas, yet the kids were all the same age… hum.  So I guess I plan to have my characters age with the books.  Anyway, I think I’m going to try to slide a couple more books in there between book 3 and book (?). 

Monday I had an article in the Newberry Observer.  That was great fun and I’m sure you can find it archived by going to Newberryobserver.com  Thank you to the Observer for the great coverage.  I also have the opportunity tomorrow night to sign books downtown at Books on Main again.  More fun!

Today I had the great pleasure to go visit Reuban Elementary and my it was a wonderful morning.  Everyone was so welcoming and Mrs. Suber, the teachers, and the students were such fun to be around.  I talked myself into a happy oblivion!  Thank you Reuban Elementary and Mrs. Suber.

Tomorrow I get to go to Whitmire to their elementary school also.  I am looking forward to talking to even more students.

Finally, if you have read my book please let me know what you think!  You can comment here, or send me an email at info@doublecousins.net
