Hello My Happy People,
I am on vacation! I really needed this time off. I haven't taken and significant time off from my books since 2015 when I started this indie author endeavor so I think it's time to relax and revive.
I'm taking a vacation from the podcast as well and will pick it back up before Halloween. My friend, Carrie Donovan, just won a horror writing contest and has agreed to come on the podcast and read her winning entry. She is also a singer/songwriter for a Rockabilly band. Check out her video and link information below. I will post dates for that podcast as soon as we set up the interview when we get back from vacation.
We stopped the writing prompt challenge and just give the two entrants each $25 and called it good. We didn't get any more submissions so it's time to quit trying to make it happen. It was a fun idea but not all ideas pan out ... this one did not.
We will start back up with the Friday Funnies on October 21st and carry on from there. We will have photos and videos when we get back and hopefully the full plot for The Touch novel, another sneak peek of the story, and the cover reveal!
Have a wonderful October, people!
