A Quick Hello

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. But I'm back with a new computer and some good news. On November 2 the American Association of University Women asked me to be the speaker at their annual Book and Author Luncheon.

I don't enjoy public speaking but I wrote a speech and practiced and practiced. I gave it with no major mishaps and sold 61 books. Those were the books in my guest room closet. So now I have room in the closet and some seed money for my new novel, Men of Paradise, being released on April 29th next year.

Some not so good news is that I had surgery last week but am weaning off the pain med and stitches come out next week. So hopefully I'll be back to full activities next week

Wonderful news on all fronts, Kathy, getting your new computer up and running, selling tons of books. Hope the good outweighs the bad.

I agree with Margaret. Selling 61 one books is nothing to sneeze at. It takes guts to speak in public so pat yourself on the back!

Did you get a lap top or desk top?
