How I spent my Spring Break

I have had so many of you ask me, "are you writing a book? Why not?" Well, the answer is yes, I have written a book. While I was recuperating from my last illness I spent time stretched out with the galley copy editing and correcting. All the time I was being spurred on by my book editor, Wallace McBride. He cracks a mean whip and had the book up and running in no time. I could not have done it without him. I am now working on book 2. In the mean time, I hope that should you buy the book (just click on the book cover in the sidebar) you will enjoy reading it at least half as much as I did writing it. Or, just click here

I am truly impressed!! I love the cover. I am keeping a dog for my grandson and have been blogging in the dog's name as a way for my little grandson to stay in touch with his pet. My daughter thinks I should publish it. His daycare provider is reading the posts for the kids. It was just something I started out of love for my little guy and I don't know if it is good enough to publish. There is a link on my blog, it's Letters to Gavin. If you are with some time on your hands, check it out and tell me what you think. I think my daughter-in-law will enjoy your book for her birthday!

From one crazy cat lady to another. :)

Congratulations, Sandi! I'll be ordering a copy--but it is a slow link...! LOVING the pictures of your square foot gardens, as my partner Andy and I are getting into. Nice to see 'the product', as it's still too cold to get much going here in Central Oregon.

Thanks, Sandi! Some book is also being born in my like that broccoli head hiding down in all those big, florid leaves...

Wow! Did you do the artwork?

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

I've been waiting for this Sandi! I can't wait to find out more about The Crazy Cat Lady!!

Jeni said...

First - Happy Mother's Day - a day late but better late than never, right?
Second -I want to purchase your book and went to the site, filled everything out and hit the final step to submit the order and my computer crashed! Well, my internet connection crashed that is. So I called the ISP to get them to reconnect me and they said they will send a rep out to check it out within 24 hours which sent my head reeling to think of 24 hours at least, with no internet. The withdrawal symptoms set in immediately. However, after I hung up the phone, I tried to disconnect and reconnect the way they've had me do on occasions in the past and presto magic, my connection was up and running again. However, I think I will wait until after the techie guy comes and checks things out before I try to make the purchase again, just to be safe that it goes through correctly. But I'm looking forward to reading your stuff, big time!
Peace.
