interested in that proposition. So I sought recommendations from an author friend who recommended a person to me. I made contact with her and have sent her the first ten pages so she can give me a time and cost estimate for the work of editing the whole book. She said to give her a couple of weeks to get back with me. Now I’m antsy to get moving on it. Patience is not a strong point with me.
I thought I would use the time to work on my ranch history book, but because non-fiction takes uninterrupted attention, decided that wasn’t a good idea before I get Saints & Sinners published. For that reason I started working on My-Still-Unnamed mystery. It has helped with the nervousness and fidgeting. I have done some research on archeology to make my story realistic and invented a way to get both my Graham County deputies and San Carlos policeman involved in a murder that takes place in the headwaters of Queen Creek northeast of Superior, ninety miles and two counties away from their jurisdictions.
While all this is going on I have booked three book signings; one each in Tucson, Mesa, and Cottonwood, Arizona. Plus I submitted The Wham Curse to a prestigious regional bookstore for review in hopes they will stock my book.
All this mixed with real life of dealing with our inherent health problems, family events and visits, a grandchild’s birthday, a
sprinkler system that wasn’t working, and the normal routines of the everyday household. Plus I’m happy to say I was given a church assignment to write a weekly and monthly communication newsletter; we are in the midst of identifying exactly what is
needed and the form it will take.
When I retired I thought it would be easy to find time to write – after all I would have all the time in the world. As it turns out time is just like money; need always increases to the capacity available. Not that I am complaining; only observing. Much good is happening, I’m with my sweetheart every day, I’m pleased with the work I’m doing, and blessings continue to flow. I wish everybody could be so blessed.
