It seems like I just took down the Christmas decorations a few months ago and now I get to put them up again:) Maybe this year, I'll just leave them up and that will save so much time! I can't believe how fast it seems like the months go by, even my teenage son remarks about it! Well, two of my books are out and I'm gearing up for the third one, this time I decided to try the traditional route and I hopefully have an agent. I will know for sure in the next couple of days. Then it is publisher shopping. I think this will be tougher than getting an agent, but I hope I will find the favor of God blessing me in this whole situation. It will be a great life-changer. It is time to bring out the 'big guns' and really start marketing myself. I recently learned a whole lot of great tools and ideas and I'm looking forward to trying them out.

Community events

Community events, especially in small towns, really seem to pull the townspeople together. I just volunteered this past weekend at a fun event in a city near by. The event was to try to raise awareness for rescue dogs and they had several organizations there with dogs up for adoption. There were about 50 vendor booths from companies selling dog food, toys, medical supplies, groomers, boarding kennels-everything having to do with dogs. The event was called Bark in the Park and was attended by hundreds of people with their dogs. It is very popular and an annual event. Every dog my sisters and I have owned have been rescues. They are the best dogs! I currently have a white lab/pit mix and he is so smart and loving. He will be two years old next month. I'm wondering if I should follow the fad and give him a party!:)
