A Tiny Break
I won't post much tomorrow or Wednesday because my oldest son has come to visit for a couple of days. He's taking a driving trip that began in Northern California, took off east to visit me in Northern Colorado, then will head down to visit my other son and his wife in Arizona before he makes the big loop back north and home. Oldest son is one of the computer geeky-type people who does work I could never hope to understand.
Anyway, I've dumped almost everything off my schedule (except my desperately needed haircut appointment) so I can spend maximum time visiting and entertaining and feeding my kid...my nearly 47-year-old kid. You moms will understand. They're always "kids" to us.
An Award to be Acknowledged
My blogging friend Nancy Sharpe of Realms of Thought was sweet enough to give me the Versatile Blogger award last week. Thanks, Nancy. I'm pleased and honored to be included in your list of worthy bloggers
There are rules and obligations that go with this award, including listing seven things about myself and passing the award on to 15 other bloggers. I fulfilled these tasks for The Versatile Blogger Award so recently, however, that I'm going to brazenly claim my job here is done. If you want to see the seven things, and the list of cool bloggers I chose, you can hop to my post of July 2nd for the rest of the story.
Author Exchange Blog
Linda Faulkner's wonderful Author Exchange Blog is back from hiatus. Linda is a great supporter of authors in all genres. Her blog is a mix of interviews, book reviews, and guest posts. If you'll have a new book to promote this fall, better submit your request soon. Linda's submission guidelines are on her blog.
Those of you who are readers (even if you aren't writers) will find Author Exchange Blog a great place to learn about new books and to get to know some of your favorite authors better.
