Happy Sunday and Memorial Day weekend! I hope y'all are making the most out of the long weekend (for most of you I hope).

I'm sure most of you recall my post last week on the flooding in my basement. Well, we had a bit more flooding up until this past Wed, when the plumber finally came to install a new sump pump, so I've been a little busy with cleaning up the basement. The damage was minimal, the plumber's bill was surprisingly low, and all is well.

I didn't get much writing time in due to all that, but I did manage to write over 600 words yesterday. If you haven't already noticed, I added a cool word meter on my sidebar so you can check my word progress on PARADIGM.

And in case you missed it, I am hosting a GIVEAWAY (contest ends tonight at midnight) in honor of my main character's birthday to win a signed paperback copy of PARALLEL or PARADOX. Don't forget to enter! Details are in the post below.

I know I've mentioned this before, but next Saturday I'll be attending our 18th Annual Railway Festival! I know it's not Comic Con or anything, but the event brings in around 35,000 festival goers from around the DC metro area. Not bad for a small town festival! I will be sharing a table with a few local authors, representing our writer's group Write by the Rails. It's such a great group and I'm proud to be a member. Anyways, I finally got my books ordered for the event and they arrived Thursday!! I only hope I sell enough books so I can camp out in front of the food vendors!

That's all I got for today. Going to spend the day writing outside and try to enjoy the beautiful weather! Happy writing everyone! I'll be around tomorrow to announce the winner of the giveaway...


  1. Glad to hear the flooding wasn't as bad as it could have been. And congrats on the word count. That's great!

    My f-i-l wanted to be a doctor, but because he had to provide for his mother after his dad died, he spent his life working on the railroad. There are so many stories from the past 100 years or so.

    Hope it goes well at the festival. TTFN

    1. Thanks for sharing Steph. The railroad is a big part of our town here and they go all out to present all its rich wonderful history. I'm not surprised your FIL has tons to share!

  2. So glad to hear the damage in the basement was minimal (and bonus to a low bill from the plumber!) Sounds like an exciting festival and a lot of potential customers. WOOT! Have a great week and good luck on Saturday! (Hopefully the box is much lighter at the end of the festival :) )

  3. Oh, giveaway! Fun!! Hope you had a good time at the festival!
