It's FRIDAY!! Are we happy or what?! Actually I'm extremely happy this week, because my son is FINISHED high school! He's in the International Baccalaureate program, and they're done now, on study leave, with only exams left in May. It is going to be very strange not to have to live my life by the school calendar any longer. I'm not sure who's looking forward to that more, me or him! And incase you haven't been following me on Twitter or Facebook, I'm really excited to share that Chris has been accepted at The Berklee College of Music in Boston. Of course he's thrilled as this is his dream come true.
Sarah is doing great too - keeps promising me that her photography website will be up and running SOON - so as soon as she's finished her exams, I'm sure she'll get on that and then I'll share it with you. We're still trying to figure out our summer plans, but we're getting there.
As you can tell by my sporadic blog posts the last few weeks, I've been really busy. I had no idea marketing a book would be SO time consuming. But it's great. I have been given some wonderful encouragement this week from readers. One was profoundly affected in a spiritual way, and I'm so humbled that God would use my words to touch someone in that way - totally amazing. Another reader told me that they are now looking at Veterans in a whole new light. I got chills. That's just so much more than I could hope for. I've said many times already that I'm really not sure how or why I got the idea to write a book that takes place during The Vietnam War. I'm slowly beginning to understand that perhaps there was a greater purpose to it than I realized at the time.
I had my first radio appearance yesterday. It was fun. Nikita Robinson at our local Hott 107.5 was a blast to sit and talk to, and I'm really glad I got to meet her. I also met another radio personality, Thaao Dill, who was also super nice and we ended up talking music and now he and my son are chatting away about it because it's something they both love. Funny how life works to bring people together, huh? Another radio spot this morning, and then tomorrow is my Bermuda book signing at The Bookmart from 11-2. Hopefully it'll be fun. I'm not really nervous, but we'll see what tomorrow brings! As far as I can tell the book sales are going well abroad, so it would be nice to get the word out here in Bermuda. And in between all that fun stuff, I AM writing, I promise!!
So that's my update. Let me hear yours! What have you been up to lately?
