I am within shouting distance of completing Lord Grenville’s Choice:It has been challenging, and I hope my readers will enjoy something a bit different from me. Hopefully, it will go to beta readers next week. Then to my wonderful editor, Susan Helene Gottfried. Target date for release is around May 10!
Rescuing Rosalind and Timeless Romance Anthology: The European Collection , which contains my novella, “Lord Oaksey Takes a Wife,” have both been nominated for RONE awards. The time for voting on the novel is past, but if you liked the anthology you can vote for it until Sunday, by following this link: http://indtale.com/2014-rone-awards-week-four.
Grandchild notice: The three Bailey boys (Jack, Micah, and Nathan) are rolling into town (their mother is driving them) for their Spring Break later this month. We hope it will have finished snowing by then. They will be able to visit their cousin Henry, who is working on perfecting his crawl. It should be a merry meeting!
Of course, the big news in the Bailey family is that we will finally have a granddaughter! Nana is buying girl clothes for a change. Petunia (her in utero designation) is going to have a lavish wardrobe.
Our son Greg will graduate from college this month. Mazel Tov! He’s been working full time for the past 5 years while going to school, and has enough credits for three different majors. He is currently having good luck in his forays into the job market in Utah Valley which is becoming a mini-Silicon Valley. The major he finally decided on is Information Systems. (A techie major for sure.)
Still planning our maiden trip to the National Parks of Southern Utah: Zion, Bryce, and Capitol Reef. David bought a new wide angle lens for the adventure. Hoping to beat the heat and go at the end of April (when Lord Grenville is at the editor). Will have some great pictures for next month’s newsletter!
