New Business Card for All Class Reunion

I asked if I could put my business card in the lanyards.  The committee said yes. I just had to order new ones. Yeah! They came today. I love Vistaprint. They are very affordable and professional.

To Honor Robin J. Jacklin, Jr.

I am so proud of our grandson. 3 day free giveaway of the first book of the Holiday Series. In honor of my grandson joining the United States Air Force, "No Christmas for Olivia" will be free June 21-23. I can only imagine how hot basic training will be in San Antonio so the summer solstice seemed to be a good day to begin the giveaway. The Holiday Series is about a military family so I thought it would be a great way to show my love and to let those who love him know how proud I am to have him serve.

Four Season Friends is Now Available

After a year of writing, countless edits, finally, Four Season Friends is available on Amazon.

Four Season Friends begins with moving day and all the stress and anxiety of seven people relocating to a new home in a new city.   Each of them quickly become s friends with the family of eight next door and the fun begins.  A few of the children  are homeschooled while others attend St. Mary Cathedral, just three blocks away.  There are vacations, a first job away from home and even a wedding reception in a Montana barn in the middle of winter!  You will come to love the Castors and the Maxums, possibly even wishing you could live next door to them.

I know you will enjoy this book as much as the Saginaw Series and Holiday Series.  Click the book.

Ayva Graduates from Kindergarten

We are so proud of Ayva. She was all smiles today.

It's Coming!

Very soon I will have my first novel online.  It will join the two series of books on Amazon.  I have about twelve hours of work left.  And for goodness sake, if I don't get those twelve hours soon I am going to go crazy!  We have the busiest day ahead so no time today.

Fran, my most faithful reader of this blog, your family is in this book - although I couldn't use your name again because you were in the last series.  But Honey - oh my - she is at her best!

First Camping Trip!

We went to Rifle River with Bill and Amy, Monday through today.  We had a very nice time.  Jan and Jim came up on Wednesday.  We all played Bocci and talked and talked and talked.

The weather was rainy on Monday but the rest of the week was fabulous.  Sunny and warm.

We had the campground to ourselves.  Even less people than when we go the week of Memorial Day.

I took a printout of my book and worked on it on and off all week.  So now to those changes.  Then I am just waiting for the cover.
