Spring Blog (again)
News from The Cape of Cod
April 29, 2018
Today is almost the end of April, and the weather here on the Cape of Cod is slowly warming. I sincerely hope it does warm up because I washed and stored all my winter sweaters, etc. and packed them away. All I have in my closet now are summer things.
It is refreshing to walk outside and see all the beautiful signs of Spring.
Are you seeing signs of Spring where you live? When I lived in Florida, the signs were there, but very subtle.
On another note, the Cape Cod Writer’s Studio is blossoming. Pat Carroll is back from her wanderings around the globe, a sure sign of Spring for us. We do expect to see more of our summer writers appear in the Studio. Pat confided in me that she plans to finish a YA novel she started a few years ago. Her travel blog is getting a lot of hits.
Michael is reading his glorious poems for us, such a brilliant poet! They begin our session on such a high note.
Sedona has published her second book, On the Rosy Path, and she will be doing book signings all over the Cape again. Bravo! Sedona, you go girl!
Deb and Felix are bringing us new venues, which Deb is mastering to enhance her writing skills. (I do have a fresh supply of doggie bones for Felix.)
John is in the process of writing his Business Plan for teaching welding classes at his Morash Welding Institute, offering OSHA Certification nationally.
Joyce has finished her book, China Strong a Backpacking Adventure, and has started her second novel in the series. A publisher in Florida, who specializes in books on China is interested in her work.
P. J. is editing and beta reading for Joyce and I believe so is Deb. We are so blessed to have their remarkable editing skills.
Karen is working on her final chapters of her book, Good Dog. As an at-home-Mom, her writing time is completely limited.
This news is new for the group. Hang on to your hats, guys!
Cynthia attended a class on play writing at the Cultural Center in Yarmouth with Max Makowski (Google him), and he is linking (literally) her with an Animator he knows for her adorable children’s books!!!!
O.K. you can breathe again.
And you thought we didn’t do anything and just had a boring writing group! HAH!
My satellite group, Writers in Common ( I hope they don’t mind that I share them) are producing books, too.
Barbara has done two, Falling from the Ladder, and Taking Cover. See her links on my website www.audacious-publisher.com
Greg has switched his focus and will concentrate on another book he has on his screen. (Note, this happens all the time, usually for the better.)
Katrina is very close, she is setting an insert of photos into her book and will be published by the middle of May.
There you have it!
Me? Well, I am writing the third book in the Something Series but got sidetracked and finished a book on self-publishing. It started out as a marketing tool and ended up in print!
This brings my count to 30 books on Amazon.
Title? Blueprinting for Successful Self-Publishing. Here is the link for the e-book:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CQ7D7LD link for new e-book
The paperback is still in limbo on CreateSpace because I pushed the incorrect button. UGH! See the cover here.
There you have it. We are fast approaching Memorial Day when all the busy little tourists arrive and clog up our Roads, Restaurants and Beach Rights.
After all, it’s only 12 weeks.
Hugs and Happy Writing!
