|Ladies of Dunbury Series|
For the last five years, May has been an unusually crazy busy month for me as the coordinator of gift card fundraising at my daughter's school. This year was no exception. My daughter, Monster, also went on an overnight class trip (first time), ran in the final PECCSA track meet, and then played first base in the softball round robin. These last two weeks of school, every one is crazy. Including me.
However, since I've finished with gift cards for the year on May 11, I'm officially off the hook for any work other than the end of fiscal year reports on June 30. Technically, I'm on vacation.
I wrote, edited, and published two novels already this year. Technically, I'm on vacation.
We get out of school June 2. Technically, I'm on vacation.
I took on the massive expanse of the backyard project over Easter, so most of that hard work is done. Technically, I'm on vacation. (not really, but now I'm just moving plants around.)
Summer vacation is a time for fun and frivolity. I plan on doing just that this year. My mother was diagnosed with moderate Alzheimers disease in December. I know this will be her last vacation at the beach, so I better make it a good one. We're going home to Rhode Island for two weeks. I plan on eating my way through it.
I'm also taking a short break from writing Regency romances. This summer I'm committed to finishing a romantic women's fiction novel (25K so far) and three detective/mystery novellas before heading back to the Ladies of Dunbury. I am recharging my batteries, so-to-speak.
I'm still unsure which Dunbury lady will be next in the line to be married, which is why I did not include Chapter One of the next book in WHEN HOPE AND PASSION COLLIDE. For those of you who may have wondered.
So, technically, I'm on vacation. Which means I probably won't blog again until I have something to say. Probably late September.
Have a great summer!
