A Busy Fall

Okay, I have to admit I've ignored my blog this fall. In the frenzy to get several books to press, I've discovered that I can get overloaded.

This fall we've published Windshift by Joyce Faulkner, The Shopkeeper's Bear by Janie DeVos and my book, Emergence: The John Bax Story.

My latest book, Grand Slam Groomer's Dogs Speak Out! features 37 absolutely precious dogs and will be out in time for Christmas. It's amazing to find out what our pets really think!

All of these books need to be converted to ebooks and iBooks so we're still behind the eight ball.

In addition, we've published An Average American Combat Infantry Soldier by Rudy Rudolph, a WWII ex-prisoner of war. Guam: Returning the Favor by Orrin W. Johnson, a US Marine who served in the Pacific Theater, is at the printers.

I'm working with Dr. Hossein Ghadimi to publish his memoir.

Whew! Just listing them all makes me tired! Seriously, it's been a good year. I enjoy the writing, editing and working with all members of our team. My partner, Joyce Faulkner, is putting her creative energy to good use - creating our iBooks. They are going to be fabulous! IBooks are a new venture for us but they offer greater creativity than ebooks. If you have an iPad or iPhone, you'll want to check them out.

If you enjoy art, check out Rebecca Evan's illustrations at She's our greatest find this year. She illustrated The Shopkeeper's Bear, which is available at Paragraphs on Padre Blvd bookstore in South Padre Island and on Amazon.

I missed Branson Veterans Week this year because I introduced Emergence: The John Bax Story at the RGV Birding Festival in Harlingen. What an interesting group of people! Many of them knew John and birded with him.

I've started attending more events. I have the next four Saturdays lined up for events in South Padre Island and Harlingen. I'm looking forward to some school visits. I love to read my dog books and present Janie DeVos' work.

In the meantime, I wish everyone a happy and blessed Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for many things and I thank God for a husband who supports all my ventures and my crazy life!
