Gearing Up for the Summer
This is the last week of school for the grands who live with me. I believe my other grands are already out. Lucky kids. Of course for my children who actually work in the school, they're still at it, either because their jobs extend beyond the last day, or because school has another week on the west coast.
Note: This week's photo is of MY high school graduation, a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away!
Either way, summer looms. This year, I'm relieved to see it arrive. Ok, you got me. Every year I'm relieved. It's great to not have to worry about homework and assignments for a few months.
I'm glad you asked!
We celebrate World Giraffe Day on June 21. I'll have more about that later this month. Meanwhile, check out the Giraffe Conservation Foundation's information about this special effort to bring attention to the silent extinction of giraffes.
I do have some big things happening this summer, too. If you subscribe to my newsletter, you won't miss any details or contests. If you don't subscribe, please consider it. I don't take over your inbox. You'll get one monthly newsletter and an occasional big news update if something significant happens in between the normal email schedule. PLUS you'll get a free short story that's a deleted scene from the beginning of The Watchers of Moniah.
I am working on updating the covers for the trilogy and have seen some preliminary artwork. It's going to be fantastic! Once I get the new covers finalized, I will re-release the paperback versions of the books. After that? I'm thinking about doing the audiobooks, but I'm not promising a timeframe on that yet.
I do have a couple of other books in the wings that I hope to release this summer. Newsletter subscribers already know about them.
Also, I've started a new series of posts on Facebook and Instagram. On Tuesday, I post a Giraffe Tuesday Trivia question. You can guess the answers and return the next day to find out if you're correct. So far, we've talked about giraffe sleep patterns, giraffe height, and giraffes in The Watchers of Moniah trilogy. Not following me on social media? Here's easy access to all of my significant links.
There's more, but I need to get back to writing!
Happy June everyone!
