Tis the season … The holidays are here and I love them! Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year to all!
Tis the season … The “snowbirds” are in Florida so it’s time for book signings, appearances, etc. I love them.
Tis the season … The folks who are professional “Anti’s” crawl from their holes and beat their chests. I don’t love them.
May I repeat Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year to all! I love the spirit they bring with them. Good will toward men (I’ll add “and WOMEN”) is something we desperately need as our world spins relentlessly toward destroying itself. I hope you all take the time to visit my Golden Retriever’s blog www.sandysays1.wordpress.com and read the Christmas story. It’s short (1100 words =/-), worded to be enjoyed by children, and appreciated by adults. You’ll find the message is positive. I’ll be posting a story, here, that is humorous in the next week. Many have asked about “Claus and the Consultant.” Yes, I’ll post that one also, but not until close to Christmas.
I’ve been busy making appearances. The pre-holiday period spawns a lot of opportunities to meet readers and get to know book buyers. I try to participate as much as I can. See some pics below of some of the places I visited.
All the venues were very well attended and well conducted. What is especially gratifying is returning to a location and having people seek you out to buy your latest releases.
A very brief word for those “Anti” people I mentioned. I would never ask that you be forced to think the way I think. Please return the courtesy of allowing me the right to think and celebrate in a way that I wish. As long as physical harm isn’t inflicted on others, the right to express one’s self is a basic human freedom. I won’t deny others, nor will I deny myself this basic part of humanity.
