No, not my age. I hit that number a long time ago, and then doubled it! I’m talking about my 31st book, Big Lake Fugitive, which I uploaded to Amazon last night. Depending on how quickly (or not so quickly) they work, it should be ready sometime today. I have had books go live in as little as two hours, and on one occasion it took three days. But on average, it takes 12 to 18 hours.
A lot is happening in this latest visit to our picturesque little town tucked away in Arizona’s White Mountains, and by the time it’s over Big Lake will never be the same again. I hope you enjoy reading it.
UPDATE: An hour after I posted the blog Big Lake Fugitive went live on Amazon. You can order it at this link.
Much of my day yesterday was spent making last-minute changes from the proofreaders and formatting the e-book version of the new release. With that out of the way, I began working on my author’s newsletter, which I plan to send out sometime this afternoon. Included in it will be links to quite a few free books from some author friends of mine. If you’re not on the newsletter mailing list, send me your email at editor@GypsyJournal.net and I’ll get you added to it. Don’t worry, I don’t spam you, and I don’t share your information with anybody. The newsletter is only to keep my readers up to date on my different writing projects and to share some insights into the writing process.
Our friend Jim Lewis stopped by in the afternoon with some parrotfish he had picked up at Oceans Seafood in New Smyrna Beach. It’s our “go to” place when Terry feels like cooking seafood. We had never had parrotfish before, and Terry floured and lightly pan fried it with fresh thyme, lemon, and butter. It was delicious! I’m looking forward to having it again sometime.
Afterward we retired to the garage to play darts, and as usually happens, Jim beat both of us several game in a row. Nothing new there. That old man (with the emphasis on old) is good!

Thought For The Day – Some days I feel like I’m surrounded by morons. Other days, I realize it’s not just some days.
