The scheduled date for Bears With Us to appear is in August, however, having had lots of new books come out with a certain date and not getting the books in time for an event, or having to pay air freight to get them, I will wait a month before getting too much going.
I have scheduled a blog tour for October, figured that would be safe.
And I'm already signed up for several things that if I get books in time I can promote there. In September I'm an instructor at the Central Coast Writers Conference and the Central Coast Book Festival follows, it would be nice if I had the new book then.
We also have a family reunion in September, I can always count on selling a few books there.
And in my own town in October is the wonderful Apple Festival, a two day event that attracts upwards of 3000 people each day and sometimes more. Of course I'll have a booth.
I always do a book launch at a used book store in the next city, but will hold off on setting the date.
While all this is going on, I'm about 3/4 through next year's Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery and still promoting Angel Lost in my Rocky Bluff P.D. series.
Back to Bears With Us, I do have to say, I love the cover. I've loved all the covers for this series, but I'm particularly fond of this one.
Sometimes I feel a bit overwhelmed, at other times I just feel blessed that I'm able to do what I love.
