My best intentions were to keep up with this blog EVERY day! However… what a week! It was great but so jam packed with visiting family, friends, and working on promoting my book that I dropped into bed every night thinking… tomorrow I’ll blog. Right now two of my cousins, (yes, they are two that were with us at the ranch when we were kids) are sitting in our camper chatting while I type this! Fortunately they can carry the conversation without me!
As far as the book promotion part of the trip to Rapid City, the most memorable part was being on TV! WOW! One of my friends, Chris Orr is the morning newsman for the NBC station in Rapid City. It was an awesome opportunity to get the word out about my book. We should get pictures from this event up on the website in the next day or so. Another stellar moment was going to the Black Hills Writers Group meeting last Tuesday night. That group of people were very instrumental in helping me get my book done. What a moment, to be able to share the book with them.
My nieces and nephews were so proud to get their copies. I was able to read the last three chapters to my sister’s children. They were properly enthusiastic and I didn’t even have to bribe them with chocolate. 🙂 I made the circles of businesses and visited the hospital, my former place of employment. All in all, it was an awesome week. I really wasn’t ready to leave though because I wanted to spend more time with my family. Isn’t there a saying about leaving while you still want to stay???
Finally, there is a possibility that I’ll have a book signing scheduled in Rapid City for the end of September! The best part… I’ll get to go home again and see my family! 🙂
