No one really knows what the future holds, but we still make plans.
I'll have a new Rocky Bluff P.D. coming out in March, Violent Departures. (Or at least that's the plan.) Because of that I'm also beginning to arrange a blog tour for April. Anyone interested in hosting me?
So far, except for the Public Safety Writers Association's conference in July, I really haven't scheduled any other cons to attend. The main reason for this is traveling isn't as easy as it used to be.
I am going to be presenting at the PSWA conference, my topic? Avoid All the Mistakes I've Made. (And there's been a-plenty.) I hope it will be amusing and helpful.
As for other in-person events, I'm hoping to be asked to join with the Central Coast Sisters in Crime in some of their plans.
We're supposed to have another Neighborhood Bookstore in the spring.
On my own blog, http://marilynmeredith.blogspot.com/ January is filled with visiting authors. I hope some of you will stop by and see who will be stopping by.
I will periodically be posting teasers about Violent Departures on my blog.
While all this is going on I'll be writing my next Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery--no title as yet, though the plot is coming along nicely.
As for my private life I already have doctor appointments, relatives to visit and visiting me, and all the things I do regularly from teaching Sunday School, attending church, getting to as many of the San Joaquin Sisters in Crime meetings as possible, (that's the closest chapter though takes nearly 2 hours to get there), writing my personal month newsletter, and writing and editing two others.
There's more--but that's certainly enough to give you an idea.
What are you plans for 2015?
