Anyone who is a Facebook friend of mine knows I was on a blog tour for Seldom Traveled most of the month. Thank goodness it is finally over, and the winners of my contest chosen.
Having a new book to promote is exciting, but even more exciting is we had a great-great granddaughter born this month. Little Avyanna was a surprise to everyone including the mom who’d been told she had an infected spleen. What a wonderful shock–the baby is beautiful.
We were invited to lunch by one of my biggest fans. She’d recently moved back to the area and we were treated to a delicious lunch and a tour of her new home. She’s appeared in three of my Tempe books as Miqui Sherwood–I captured her personality and her appearance as she asked me to put her in one of my Tempe Crabtree mysteries. She is in the latest, Seldom Traveled.
Our eldest daughter and hubby came to visit for three days and we had a great time which included several meals out and the movie, Sully.
I did an interview on the radio: http://blogtalkradio.com/webbweaverbooks/ http://www.bookpleasures.com/websitepublisher/articles/8126/1/In-Conversation-With-Marilyn-Meredith-Author-of-Over-40-Books/Page1.html#.V-K-HYgrKM9
I spoke to the Tulare Kings Writers about creating memorable characters and traveled to Oakhurst to participate in the Central Sierra Book Festival and gave a short talk on how to keep series characters fresh.
On the 29th, I’ll be at the Central Coast Book Festival from 3-8 in front of the mission at San Luis Obispo.
Last but not least, and I’m mentioning it now because it’s before my next blog post, I’m having a feebie promotion for an earlier book in the series: Spirit Shapes on Kindle from October 16-October 22.
Ghost hunters stumble upon a murdered teen in a haunted house. Deputy Tempe Crabtree’s investigation pulls her into a whirlwind of restless spirits, good and evil, intertwined with the past and the present, and demons and angels at war.
Oh, and there were other things too: I did some consulting work that actually paid, taught my 5th grade Sunday School class, went to church, cooked dinners, did the laundry, played with my great-grands, attended a church potluck, and other such ordinary things.
And that was my September, how was yours?
