Whew! I’m glad to be starting today. The holiday was nice, but I’m ready to get rid of the candy and go to work.
It’s been a rough holiday for us. My brother-in-law, Joe Galloway, passed away on Christmas Eve. My niece text me Monday afternoon that they didn’t expect him to make it through the next two days. Joe’s been a fighter, but his body was worn out with Parkinson’s and Dementia. We are already missing him, but life must go on. We won’t get to go to the funeral in West Virginia, or the visitation in Alabama due to my husband’s recent knee replacement. I will miss seeing family, but we have good memories.
Let’s get back to today. Today I’m on Patti Shene’s blog at http://ow.ly/esJK30n6l1T. If you would like to know what made me start writing historical romance, read the blog. I love old things, stories, furniture, and dishes. A spinning wheel sits in my home that belonged to my great grandmother.
If you comment on Patti’s blog, you’ll be entered to win a print copy of Callie’s Mountain. This is my first published book, and it tells a little about the Melungeon race. We had heard stories about our family living in the area where the Melungeons lived. After one story we heard, we believed we had Melungeon blood running through our veins. After I had my DNA done, I really suspect we are right. My report stated I had Mediterranean, African, Caucasian, and Middle Eastern. Although I am very fair, I do have curly hair.
Beginning January 3, 2019, I will begin a series of podcasts on marketing. You can listen to them at https://mantlerockpublishingllc.com/podcast/ I hope you will take advantage of these podcasts.
Have a blessed day.
