I've made some plans to be part of a big author event in October. The first annual York Book Expo
will take place on October 17th. It sounds exciting with more than 100 authors participating. I promise pictures and a report though you never know how those things will go especially in its first year.
You've heard me complaining about the rain but one of the good things to come out of that is the thriving foliage in my flowerbeds. I haven't watered anything since early May but you can see in these pictures how they're growing. The tomato plant looks like some kind of genetically enhanced food source. I don't even like tomatoes.
At least I have the pool to cool off in after I spend hours trying to keep up with the weeds and grass. Later today, I'm taking three large bags of books to the used store where I hope they find new homes. The store, 2nd and Charles, is part of the BAM empire and they give only pennies for books. I usually pick up a stack of new-to-me books when I visit, but I've been making an effort to clear off some of my shelves. Will I ever read those books I've collected again? Some I thought I would but have now decided I wouldn't. If we do downsize next year or the year after, I won't have the room I have now. I regret letting them go but hoarding is not my style.
This evening is all about working on that WIP that has already taken me an entire month longer than I expected. Bad me but I've been reading some good books this summer when I should be writing. I'm currently reading Anatomy of Evil by Will Thomas. It's a mystery/suspense series that takes place in Victorian London.
Did you buy anything on Prime Day? Are there any book events going on in your area you're attending or participating in during the next few months? How are your flowerbeds looking this year? I know those of you in the western part of the country have been short of rain. What do you do with books you no longer have room for? Are you reading something good right now?
