I had a wonderful school visit with the fourth and fifth-graders of Ocracoke School on Ocracoke Island, NC. The kids were fantastic. So were the teachers and parents – including Ms. Sundae Horn who wrote an article about the visit for the Ocracoke Current. I got to eat a delicious lunch from Eduardo’s with everyone.
Also, I was much impressed with the hearts the students made for the visit. The visit was in February around Valentine’s Day.
It was a lovely visit. I hope the kids will decide to write, write, write, and that everyone enjoyed it as much as I did.
Very sadly, my and my mother’s dogs passed away last year about 6 months apart. They were old – Sally was almost fifteen-years-old and Simon was just shy of seventeen-years-old. They’ve both been part of the family for a long time and were very good dogs so it was heart-breaking to lose them.
And here’s old man Simon:
We waited a few months, but we’ve gotten a new puppy – Bailey Ball. He’s smart. And sweet. And a bit of a monster – hopefully he’ll grow out of that! He’s also pretty adorable.
Today is pub day for the paperback for QUEST MAKER (The Last Dragon Charmer #2), and the paperbacks look great. Copies can be ordered at your local independent bookstore (see list to the left), Amazon, B&N, and wherever books are sold!
Not only that, there is a sneak peek – the first 15 pages – of book three, REALM BREAKER, in the back. And there is some lightning.
I will be at the Annual NC Renaissance Festival on November 12-13th for the Time Traveler’s Weekend with Park Road Books! There will be feasting, jousting, fun, and, of course, BOOKS! Click on the banner above for more info.
