My calendar is a funsy mess of neat notes, scribbled afterthoughts, and COLOR. Standing appointments and due dates are snuggled up between writing goals and grocery lists. I doodle. I add stickers and sticky notes. I keep word tallies and jot down the names of books or songs. Plotting and planning overlap, and somehow everything gets done (although some stuff trails in a smidge behind schedule). This week, my calendar was super full … and with fun stuff. I have pictures to share, so come and see!
Being a Mrs. Pastor. I’m a writer, but that’s not all I do. It’s a huge part of my life, but it’s not all I am. Didja know I’m a pastor’s wife? My mister is a preaching, teaching, caring guy with a big calling. For most of our marriage, I supported him from the behind the scenes while raising our family, but in recent years, he’s encouraged me to exercise my gifts in new ways. Like teaching. I love laughing and learning with the ladies who join me for “Rain or Shine” on Tuesday mornings. Part of my week is spent preparing for these fun lessons. Say, I’m curious! Are you friendly with your pastor’s wife? ^__^
Cover Reveal Recap. Angels: A 90-Day Devotional about God’s Messengers (releasing in October 2015 from Zonderkidz). Pursuing Prissie (A Pomeroy Family Legacy Novel, due out this spring). Inside the Tree: A Ewan Johns Adventure (Byways Book #5 by C. J. Milbrandt, the kids series I’m publishing under my maiden name). These three book covers came to light last week, and another (Byways #6) is scheduled for this Friday over on my other blog. So much to celebrate! ♥
Book Signing. The multi-author event at our local Barnes & Noble was lots of fun. Plenty of hustle-bustle and the chance to meet potential readers and sign books. Since Saturday happened to be a rainy day (a rare treat here in San Diego), it was a perfect afternoon to hang out in a coffee-scented maze of books.
