OMG! My last post was March and it's now October.

I knew it had been a while since I posted here, but had no idea it had been that long.

It's been a busy summer. I've done a few events, one being the annual LaPlata Artfest, but mostly I've been taking care of things around the house, training and walking my German Shepherd pup, taking a gun course, visiting or helping nieces/nephews and/or parents.

I also had "kick back, put your feet up, and get lost in one of my books" trade-marked. Which means all new market material will have to have that added.

Still a lot to be done, however, I'm powering down on those for the winter and will get back to writing. Plus, researching other market venues. This is the type of thing one has to deal with when becoming an Indie writer. I love having control over my work, yet, when it comes to marketing and expanding my fanbase, I feel overwhelmed.

And, if I could afford to hire a maid, I'd have more time to dedicate to all of the above.

Nice! I notice that I've been writing this blog since 2009. I'll try to do better in 2018, on all accounts.

Until next time, kick back, put your feet up, and get lost in one of my books ™.

Janie's Is Out!

Hello Bloggers and Bloggetts.

It is official: Janie's Got It Good, book four is now on Amazon and Kindle. My order has arrived in time for my next events.

The first event will be at the Wade Community Center in Waldorf, MD., on April 1, 2017.

And, again this year, I'll be at the ArtFest in LaPlata, MD., on June 10th, from 11 - 5. Rain date: June 11. The ArtFest is a great event; they have musicians, crafts, arts, food, and so on.

Plus, this year I will be adding some art projects I did over the winter.

Each is a small canvas painting, which would add a bit of color to your book shelf or mantel during the Christmas holiday.

Put June 10th on your calendar and come out and see what there is to see.

Until the next time: kick back, put your feet up, and get lost in one of my books.

Hello Everyone.

It's a new year and I'm still busy, mostly, still home projects.

The weather is warming fast; soon it'll be time to do yard work.

Haven't had many opportunities to do sales for Bugs on the Windshield. I hope to get back to the annual ArtFest in June. I've had good feedback on the book, which is a good feeling. Just wish I could get people to leave good comments on Amazon or wherever.

I've made a slight change to my website title, instead of just Books by I've added Kick Back Books (I did a search for any websites by that name and found none) by. I wanted something that would indicate the easy reading nature of my books. I've also added, "Kick Back, put your feet up, and get lost in one of my books", to further clarify.

I still have much to do, one being to finish Book 4 of Janie's Got series. The proofing has been done, I just need to make a few changes and then it'll be ready to go.

That is all. Until next time, keep reading.
