The start to the newest novel, number three, has gone really well. I am impatiently waiting for the editors to edit, and the printers to print, so I can get some input back from readers on number two, “Compass Point.” If anyone is interested in being a reader, please contact me via e-mail – using “Compass Point reader” in the subject line. I am in hopes everyone enjoys the diversity and far reach from my first book. Number three is yet another far reach in a different direction.
I was asked, “Why not stick with one genre?” and I have to answer – it is because I love the challenge of something new. There is nothing saying I can’t go back and do a second one in any genre – if there is sufficient interest for it, but truthfully, I am going to write what I love and am interested in.
Memories, memories. I am finding the good memories are more painful than the bad ones here at the farm. I let go of the bad ones some time back in the grief process, but the good ones are still here to make me sad. I am enjoying my grandsons and trying to help out so the kids can get some much-needed work done.
There are also too many people I would like to visit in the time I have to spend out here. That adds to the difficulty. I would rather not be spending time with all of the flies that reside out here, but when you live near livestock on a farm, there are flies, part of the circle of life – as they say.
Funny how one forgets certain attributes during certain stages of babyhood. With two older grandkids, I had forgotten what having a seven month old is like. He is definitely reminding me of my age. He doesn’t quite crawl but wants to, and loves to be entertained – all the time. The really good part though, is the new memories we are making for the future.
