Do you find yourself too often in the “Getting Ready” mode? I seem to be in that mode all the time lately!
We prepared for our new little grandchild – and gorgeous, thick black-haired and placid Haylee Mae arrived three weeks ago today.
Next we prepared for birthdays – both Haylee’s mother and her brother Adam’s second birthday just yesterday.
And while all those were waiting in the wings, we’ve been preparing to be away in Queensland for some time on a working holiday. This will be a very busy time to not only visit family but be involved in a writer’s conference, mentoring writers, two book-signing events, speaking appointments and inevitably other things we have not planned for.
This is one time I would like another lap-top computer. However I do prefer to work on this desk-top one so think the other would not be used enough to make the expense of keeping in updated worth while! And sometimes too, after all the hours on the computer, perhaps I need a holiday from it also?
The next major event of course is preparing for Christmas and having all our children here. How very special that will be this year again! There also appears to be a week looming in January of helping more writers at the Poatina Faith and Arts event here in Tasmania. Then there are hopes for a Romance Writers event... then...? I’m sure there will be others too as next year unwinds.
Blog followers, I’ve been able to schedule the Ray on Monday posts while we are away but am not sure about access to a computer to bring you this weekly Thursday (and too often Friday!) post or if I have time to schedule another each week while we are away. Do be patient with us! And we would love more followers of course, so if you just pop in occasionally we would still like you to join us as “Followers”.
And during all of this “busyness”, somehow my own writing on that manuscript tentatively called Her Outback Cowboy is sitting all forlorn waiting... and waiting...
I am a multi-published, Australian romance author. Check out my Latest News page for updates about my books, current projects and speaking appointments.
As well as a few medical romances published by Harlequin Mills and Boon, I have contemporary and historical Christian romances from Barbour Publishing in America. My single title Baragula series were published by Ark House Press in Sydney. All my Barbour novels have been out of print for some years but available again as e-books. All three Baragula books are also out of print and will be released also as e-books. I still have a few print copies left to sell. See the Contact page on my website for details.
I enjoy being a member of writers' organisations, including my local Society Women Writers Tasmania, Romance Writers of Australia, Omega Writers Inc, and American Christian Fiction Writers.
I am available to speak and share about writing novels, my own writing journey and faith in our incredible God.
Watch out for my next projects: Delayed Dreams, a spin off from my Damaged Dreams Heartsong Presents book, and my next single title, Her Outback Cowboy.
