Yes, it's Time to Plan Some Promotion

I've sent the latest Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery off to the publisher. Another publisher is filling in for Oak Tree Press.

The title is Unresolved. The mystery is solved, but others things are left unresolved.

The cover designer has been in touch with me with a great idea, I'm eager to see what he comes up with.

And yes, as Linda Thorne mentioned in a comment in my last post, I need to start planning a blog tour, but I have to wait until I learn a publication date.

I do have several appearance coming up--I take advantage of any opportunity.

The first one is a big author book fair at the Sierra Vista Mall in Clovis, this Saturday, March 11, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The following Saturday, March 18, I'll be sharing Writing Tips with the Tulare-Kings Writers at 10 a.m. in the Blue Room at the big Visalia Library on Oak Street.

I have been busy as usual--I attended the PSWA Board Meeting and Retreat for 3 days in Ventura. We are going to have a wonderful conference this year--believe me, it is also the least expensive writers conference going and there's a before the conference writing workshop also inexpensive. This is my favorite conference of all. You get to meet and network with personnel from all areas of public safety (law enforcement, fire, dispatching, etc.) and mystery writers are welcome. If you want to be on a panel, you just have to say so.

Oh, and I do have a life beyond writing and promoting. Had a great visit with all three of my daughters while in Ventura.

I've been doing some reading for pleasure.

And I've attended the San Joaquin chapter of Sisters in Crime latest meeting.

There's much, much more, but if you follow me on Facebook, you already know what I've been doing.

Our three girls, hubby and me.

Thank you, Patricia!

Oh, I do remember the Visalia Library on Oak Street. I worked at Kraft Foods in Visalia (before it closed down)and would go there after work for weekly author critique group meetings before driving home to Hanford. You were a guest at one of our meetings way back then. The conference in Ventura sounds great. Too far for me since I now live over here in the Nashville, TN area and I'm still saddled with heavy work demands at the day job. Glad to hear you're starting your book tour.

Only starting to plan it, Linda.
