First let me say, I didn't get picked for the jury. I was in the big batch of people who they were combing through to find the right juror for a major murder trial. After going the first day and put in that pool, I was told every day to call back between a certain time and they would tell me whether to show up or not the next day. This went on all week. Friday the judge released us. The trial started the following week. I don't watch the news or read the paper, but my husband kept me informed. Kind of glad I didn't make the cut. I'm guessing (actually knowing) God knew what He was doing when I didn't get on board.
As a mystery writer, I would have found it interesting. But remember. I deal with fiction. The real life story of it all, was...IT WAS REAL...PEOPLE WERE MURDERED. It gives me the shivers just thinking about it. Also I was sick the whole time. Me who never gets sick was under the weather with some sort of upper respiratory thingy. No fun. Still the last of it is holding on to me...tizz why I haven't written my blog until now.
Now for the good news. My book, Be Not Afraid, Book 1 of The Samantha Cain Series, got a new face lift. Oh, ladies & gentlemen, it is beautiful if I do say so myself. No scars, no wrinkles, just plain beauty. They kept the moon with the overlay of clouds for the suspense, but you have to check it out. I don't think its been changed on my website yet. But I know Ms. Moore will get it done as soon as she can. Anyway, the new face lift on book 1 is done. OakTara is working on Testimony of Innocence, Book 2 of The Samantha Cain Series. I'm so excited. My editor, Ramona Tucker is speaking at a conference in Leeville, Florida next month. My husband and I are going to go to it. I can't wait. The conference will be a great one!
More good news. We got the blueprints for our deck being added and the approval to start the work. It will begin Monday. YES! After that we will be able to enjoy BBQ's or just plain sitting out back enjoying the lake. Of course we do that now from the porch, but it will be so nice having the deck and the patio furniture.
On top of that we have
