What I did for Spring Break and other news (The Dawnflier, May 2015) #MFRWauthor #amwriting

April was a very busy, fun, and productive month for me!

Week 1: Spring Break at Surfside Beach (just south of Myrtle Beach).
Highlights: Sushi and other great restaurant experiences, helping a stranger recover her mischievous dogs, a girls' night out to drool over the horses and hunks at Medieval Times, learning that there's an urgent-care clinic very close to my timeshare (and thank heaven I didn't need to visit them on Easter Sunday), and finishing a chapter of my current work-in-progress, Raging Sea.

(This video isn't mine but has been endorsed by Medieval Times. It was shot at the Myrtle Beach, SC location and posted more than a year ago. Some folks might call this show a "guilty pleasure," but the family joke is that I don't have a "guilt gene!" And proud of it. :D)

Week 2: Being interviewed for a feature article in our local newspaper, speaking with students of creative writing at Bluefield College, VA, and signing & selling books at the college's Celebrate Appalachia event.

Week 3: Scrambling to get more promotional materials made, then spending a lovely day at a brand-new comicon, Con of the Mountain, Clifton Forge, VA.

Week 4: My most productive writing session in a long time (again on Raging Sea), followed by a wonderful sales experience at the second annual Experiencing Art in Wytheville event.

Upcoming events:
I hope you enjoy your springtime!
