We have been living out of a suitcase, well actually a couple of suitcases, and it’s been a challenge. We left our home in Edgewater, Florida on Friday morning and arrived in Tucson, Arizona on Monday morning. We keep saying we are done making these marathon trips across the country but it seems like things keep happening to make them necessary.
After picking up my cousin Beverly in Tucson and dealing with some issues there, we came up to Apache Junction to see Miss Terry’s parents. While we are here, I have an appointment to meet with the woman who formats my books and with a couple of bookstores that specialize in mystery books, especially those with a Southwestern flavor. And there are also a couple other book retailors I will be touching base with.
I have also been gathering information for future blog posts and researching some things for upcoming books. I spent some time yesterday talking with a friend who was a police officer in Show Low, which is in the White Mountains where my Big Lake books are set. He gave me a lot of good info on how the different police agencies up there work together, which will add an extra degree of accuracy to my books.
The weather has been very chilly here and it’s supposed to get down in the 30s overnight for the next few days. Meanwhile, our house sitter tells me it’s nice and warm back home. At least I think that’s what he said. I couldn’t understand him very well and I suspect he found my hidden Hostess Twinkie stash. Another reason to get back there as quickly as possible, before he eats them all.
I’ll try to post more tomorrow, but internet access has been difficult. If not, I will post again as soon as I can.
Thought For The Day – On very bad days, when I’m sure I can’t take anymore, I try to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days is 100%.
