Looking Forward to a Busy February
Goodness, the month is almost over. The next few days promise to be very busy. Here is a list of what will happen around here, in order of importance to you, the reader.
For Fred Zuker
- Fred Zuker’s booksigning at Half Price Books (#001) in Dallas, TX, on the 16th from 1:00-3:00pm. Paperbacks of The Dark Angel Turned Away will be available! Or, bring your own. Be sure to plan some time to just chat with Fred!
- A repeat showing of Fred Zuker’s interview on Coffee withe Claire on the YouTube and Facebook pages for Coffee with Claire on the 7th at 9:00am.
- Release of the paperback version of Standing Tall and Looking Good, any day now! Hopefully, in time to have copies at the booksigning at Half Price Books on the 16th.
- Release of the ebook Grace with Meals, again, any day now.
- More blog posts written by Fred, including a few bits of wisdom from Grace with Meals and at least one excerpt.
For Valerie Coskrey
- A Book Sale at the Sweeny Community Library, Sweeny, TX, 10:00am until 6:00pm, except on Tuesday, until 8:00pm. Now that I have joined the library association, I will be working at least one day at the Book Sale. Y’all come!
- Maybe I will write that essay for the Ageless Author’s Contest, due on the 29th. This is 1000-word contest for those 65 and over.
- Wayne and I should be publishing Fred’s books asap.
- Keeping up with my Facebook and LinkedIn posts and expanding my social life.
- Housework, which I hate. When I was teaching, I hired it out.
- Yardwork, because here in southern Texas, the spring planting season is way early. In fact, it is almost too late to prune my fig tree.
- I will be working on the poems of Edith Taylor. My neice (Aunt Edith’s great-neice) will be illustrating the book. She is a very talented artist. I took pictures of the wall mural she painted in her daughter’s bedroom years before they left the rental house and bought a home. I used the photos to make icons for my first website, for Coskrey Biz, and bullets for PowerPoint presentations. Here are a few. (Remember, I was the photographer and the I made the images for web use–many years ago. The actual mural was beautiful, then I used resizing, funny filters, and color balances. She is talented. I was learning.)
- A button made from a trim painted by Jessica. A butterfly. A butterfly button. A flower. And my favorite, the bookworm on the flower.
