Honestly, I’m not that cranky but I thought this was the best way to let you know it’s a Laura update, not a Nora one.
(Nora’s well, but I don’t expect her to collect her thoughts and share a blog post until later this month.)
We’re into Nora’s the busiest week (non-writing category) of the year. The Turn the Page Bookstore Anniversary event on Saturday went off well, despite heat and humidity. Yesterday’s Fall into the Story Brunch was wonderful as always — so much fun to visit with happy readers (who all came to see me, of course!)
My husband and I joined Nora and family for a few days at the spa and an oasis of down time in late June. Our little crew of dedicated walkers clocked steps and miles every morning before 10 am while the rest of the group moved at their own pace. Every day offered activities for the kids, spa treatments for adults, plenty of reading, chatting and eating time. I took photos that made me happy.
Extra bonus (for me?): no scoreboard! Woo-hoo! There was a modified competition after we left, but if I’m not in the room when a game is played, did it really happen?
Now we’re off to RWA for the week. If you’re in the San Diego area, don’t forget the Literacy Autographing on Wednesday, July 13 from 5:30-7:00. I’ll let Nora tell you a little bit more about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7gfxfnVDW0
I’ve played with designs this spring and have posted quotes from various books on Facebook. Here are two examples. If you’d like me to make the quotes and discussion a regular feature here on the blog, please let me know.
Need to shut down the computer and get to the airport. I promise to share recaps and photos this week, so stay tuned.
