Then zip! It’s off to production.
Good morning from dreary Vermont. Since we now have snow in the air and even some on the ground, I’ve started to listen to Christmas music at work and in my car. Instrumental, classics, new versions, the whole nine yards. If it adds a spring in my step, why not?
I didn’t blog last week because I used the time to work on my second round edits. As of this morning, I’m half way through. I’ve got two weeks left to make my deadline–then zip! It’s off to production.
This evening at the library, I host a one-time reader’s group discussion on this year’s Vermont Read’s selection–Bread and Roses, Too. The Vermont Humanities Council selects one book a year for the entire community to read and talk about, in small towns and big cities all over the state. This particular book is about the labor strike in Lawrence, Massachusetts, seen through the eyes of two older children. I have a few videos for my small group to watch, and there are pizza, cider, and cookies. Perhaps next year I’ll draw a larger crowd.
Friday, when I was out and about, a reader fan asked where in town she could buy my new book. I didn’t know, as my friend Orah Moore no longer has her store in the village. The woman reminded me that some people didn’t use Amazon. That’s a good point. I’ll have to think on it.
Okay, time to get ready for work, and pack my basket with goodies for the afternoon and evening. Check back next week for another segment of Finding Home.
