Seems I've been super busy since retirement; so many things that need to be done and so little time. Or maybe I'm not doing so well with managing my time. My writing as taken a back seat to life.
I have been doing some reading and making afghans for family, and hats for cancer patients. And jotting down story ideas when they hit.
I recently attended the annual ArtFest in LaPlata, Maryland. It was a good day, but overcast and hot enough to get sun burn on my shoulders. I'm never sure how that happens as I spent most of my time under the canopy; except for trips to the restroom or food/drink vendor.
Here's a shot of my table and tent taken by another writer:
I'm happy to report that I had a repeat customer from last year. Gwen bought the first book in the Janie's Got series and was looking for the second one. I offered her a deal if she wanted to buy all three (Janie's Got is a four-book series), which she was happy to accept.
I sold one Hooked to a member of our writing club.
One thing I'm not too happy about is that my Bugs on the Windshield isn't selling well. I was really excited by the idea when I wrote it; thought it was a unique (throw-back) concept of how it came about.
They ended the event a bit early so vendors could leave before the storm hit, which was good because the storm was a doozy.
