Good Authoring Day to YOU

… And Happy Saturday to you!

Today, it’s Barnes & Noble day in Lone Tree, Colorado. A dozen wonderful authors will be with me all day. Kids’ books. Great fiction reads. How to for business and writing. Inspiration. And much more.

Tonight is the annual summer band nigh on my street. One of my neighbors brings his band in for a two-hour jamming session. Looking forward to it.

And the massive cleanup continues. Twenty boxes were shredded last week. Another 14 boxes of recycling out. Several files totally emptied. And there’s so much more to go through and choose—shred, recycle, keep.

Electric fireplace in my new room this weekend along with a wall of bookshelves … of course. Next week, closets switched out and new ones built. 

It’s Caturday … a reminder to all authors and writers that every book is one step at a time … sometimes mini ones … sometimes leaps!

That’s me for this Saturday … How about you?… What are you up to? …
