Friday Five- Info and Fun


First, I walked three days this week and know I will put miles in trekking the hills of our Princeton property this weekend.

Second, Don't forget I'll be at Pam Thibodeaux's blog tomorrow, Saturday, January 31st. Please stop by if you get the chance and say hello.

Third, keep your fingers crossed. I sent out nine e-queries to agents for the Pinkerton story I just finished.

Fourth, I've started pulling the premise and ideas together for the fourth Halsey brother book and my editor loves what I have so far!

Fifth, I'm so pump! I contacted the Oregon Institute for the Blind which opened its doors in 1873 and is still in existence today, and they will let me come rummage through the archives to get the day to day information I need about the blind school for my book. This is my favorite part of writing historical books!

1. Congrats, and be careful walking around the property. No more hay accidents.
2. I'll try to stop by tomorrow. Have a NASCAR draft, so don't know how much computer time I'll have.
3. My fingers (and toes) are crossed for you.
4. KUDOS...Happy writing!
5. I am so jealous! That sounds fascinating! I look forward to a blog about it on the Cactus blog!

Hey Lauri, Thanks! In case you didn't figure it out, I'm pretty stoked about the blind school info and will definitely share the info.

I'm so proud of you and your walking! You're doing awesome!

Sorry I didn't get to the blog on Saturday. I've been swamped.

Even my eyes and butt cheeks are crossed for you. And believe me, that butt cheek thang was not easy!

Fourth Halsey book, yeah baby, woo hoo!!

Have fun with the research on the institute. I know that stuff is right up your alley! :)

The picture of your property is beautiful. You're going to love it there!
