Up and Down Week

This has been an up and down week.
First the ups…
I received the cover for my latest book, Kendra’s Choice. It’s a short story, so will only be released in e-book, and I love the cover the artist created.
Today I spoke to at a workshop for Foster Grandparents. Years ago while I was teaching, I had a couple of foster grandparents in my classrooms, and the children loved them. As did the teachers! They are so much help and really provide students that ‘one on one’ time they need. There must have forty or more at the meeting, and I sold several books. Overall it was a great meeting and the grandparents were a fun crowd.

Now for the down…
My dog, Chance, passed away yesterday. He was thirteen, and had gone down hill very quickly the past two weeks. He died peacefully, just went to sleep. I’m very thankful for that, but will miss him an awful lot.

Congrats on the new hot book. Sorry to hear about your dog. When they have been around that long , it is like losing family.

Lauri, thanks for the great presentation to the Foster Grandparents and encouraging them to tell their stories and to encourage the children to write.

I am very much enjoying the novel I purchased!

Thanks, Paty. I'm excited about this book. And thanks for the condolences. We do feel the loss of Chance throughout the family. He was a great little guy!

Thanks, Pat. I really enjoyed the workshop. Keep up the good work!
