I'm Back!

Well, I had quite a busy week and now I'm back on track. The novella, which is becoming a novel, is getting close to being ready for beta-readers, and I've been working on the second novel in the series here and there. I would like to at least have the first 10 chapters ready for us to revise as soon as we are ready to tackle it.

I also spent extra time with family last week and that was really nice. I had the grandkids over night and all the next day. Also spent more time with my mom and my husband, especially since last week was our wedding anniversary and his birthday. 

On Saturday night we all went out to dinner together, the whole family, and celebrated Rick's birthday. We had a great time! Lots of wonderful conversation and catching up on each other's lives. Now if only we could all go camping. Sounds like fun to me!

We did, however, spend a weekend, all of us, in Buena Vista this year, and had a great time there as well. Rick and I couldn't afford the big vacation, but at least we had a very nice weekend. 

I do have a bucket list of places I would like to go, but we never seem to have the money. Oh well, maybe some day. I'm just curious if any of you had a big vacation this year? You know I've told you before, I live vicariously through all of you. 

Did you go somewhere fun this year? Or maybe getting ready to go somewhere? Please drop me a line and let me know what you did for summer vacation, you know, like in school! I would love to hear about it.

Maybe next year we can go up to British Columbia to see the White Bear rain forest area. I sure would love to see the wild coast along there. I guess you can see whale, seals, wolves maybe, and a white bear, or Kermode bear as they are officially called.

We would take a ship along there and possibly stop at the Indian reservation, too. Well, we will see how the book sales go. (I know, I'm probably dreaming). But hey, at least dreams are free!

Have a great week everyone and don't forget to leave me the details of your vacation down in the comment box!

Love, Lisa


  1. Glad you're back. It's so nice to get away for a while. No vacation thus far. Still working on some projects. How's your sister doing, and also your book? Great, I hope. Blessings.

  2. Hi Johnny, good to hear from you! Everyone's fine around here. Working hard on the "side book" Fated. Only have a little over 40 pages left to revises, then one more pass, then beta-readers. Fable sales have slowed to a crawl, but I'm hoping the next book will boost it some. We do have 12 reviews on Amazon so far, 11 are 5 star and one 4 star, so that makes me happy. How's your world in the film business?
