Well, would you look at that: It’s 2016. I was pretty busy at the end of last year, and I completely neglected this blog. So let’s recap what happened, and then take a peek at what’s coming up.
In November, I was scheduled to do my first Copper and Stone book signing at Longs’ in Penn Yan. Unfortunately, that had to be rescheduled – but I still made that week’s Chronicle Express! Check out the article here. We were able to hold my signing in early December. What a blast! I signed copies of my book for friends, families, teachers, and even strangers.
In other Copper and Stone news, I’m currently holding steady with 7 five-star reviews on Amazon. If you’ve read my stories and would like to say something about them, I’d love it if you’d pop over and post. Thanks!
On Christmas, images like these started to show up on my Facebook newsfeed:
I couldn’t have asked for a better gift (and neither could they, am I right?!).
As for the future, Alex and I are in the planning stages of more/new events for PY Writes. Keep your eye on our Facebook page for details.
And as for me? Well, I had planned on starting a novel (the idea has been germinating for months, thanks to a chance encounter with an old friend over the summer), but I’ve decided to take a different route. It’s pretty ambitious, so if I peter out, don’t say I didn’t warn you…
I’m going to try to write a short story every week this year. Yup, 52 short stories (I’m thinking 1000 words or less). So by the end of the year, I’ll have a collection ready for a new book! To read them, you’ll have to wait until they are published. (If you’re a literary agent and/or publisher, call me!)
