Wowee, Zowee! July Has Been Busy

So busy, I’m late once again.

The life of this author has been jam-packed. So jam-packed I have not been able to finish the book I’ve been working on. Not all bad, because I had other writing jobs to do that actually pay money.

New covers for my earlier books in my Deputy Tempe Crabtree series have come in for my approval and I’m delighted. They are wonderful.

And my favorite:

Though I’ve missed two of my regular writers meetings this month, I did get to go to the fabulous Public Safety Writers Association conference in Las Vegas, and it was the best ever.

We had lots of fantastic presentations from the best self-editing guide I’ve ever heard, first hand accounts of gun fights, lots of information on poisons of all kinds, plus other writing topics.

The most moving of all, though, was a first-hand account from a firefighter/EMT who’d gone to the outdoor concert next to Mandalay Bay with a group of friends. His brother was wounded, and after getting him out of harm’s way and on his way to the hospital, he remained in the parking area doing triage, giving medical help, and sending those who could be saved off to a hospital. The details were heart-wrenching.

Someone asked him how he knew what to do. He said, “All my training kicked in.” That’s something to remember as we write about first-responders.

I’ve copies of my newly edited and with new covers of the first four books in my Rocky Bluff P.D. series too. I am ready for my next in-person event which comes up in August.

Final Respects NEW

My personal life has been busy too—doc visits for hubby, regular household chores, a birthday party for a great-grand, some nice dinners out, and just living.

What about you? What’s happening in your life?

  1. Hi, Marilyn. In June I finally published my new retro-cozy, “Flower Power Fatality,” and started working on the new short story that will be included in the reprint edition of my first book, “the Baffled Beatlemaniac Caper.” Right now I’m writing interview answers and guest posts for my August blog tour. And my usual LOM monthly post and my newspaper column. And my day job. And sweltering in the heat waves. Fall can’t arrive soon enough for me LOL!
