Just got back from a whirlwind weekend of travel to Kansas City to see one of my nephews graduate. Lots of ideas to blog about. Lots of story ideas and research details hit me every time I'm back home in the Kansas City area. Saw lots of people I love (Hi, Aunt Margaret! Thanks for letting me use your grandson's name as a future hero ;)) Even though it was my nephew's day (he got a scholarship to play baseball for a Missouri university!), everyone was so kind to also celebrate my good news... I made the USA TODAY Bestseller List with my current release, THE MARINE NEXT DOOR!!! (Thank you to all the readers who put me there!)
But, since it was a long, fast trip, and we're picking up furniture and helping my son move it into his apartment (he's been sleeping on a cot there for a week) today, I'll keep the blog simple and share some pictures.
Our sweet dog Maggie traveled with us this time. She was a hit everywhere she went. Even had to doublecheck Grandma's bag to make sure she hadn't packed Maggie inside to take her home with her. ;)
So what are you celebrating? I share a signed copy of one of my backlist title--or THE MARINE NEXT DOOR if you haven't had a chance to get a hold of my current release yet--with one lucky poster today.
Off to do some heavy lifting,
