Hello My Happy People,
I hope you are having a wonderful Friday and are looking forward to some great weather this weekend. I am very sleep deprived today so please forgive me if there are some typos in this post. My poor dog, Shaggy, gave me a very rude awakening at 5:45 this morning.
The batteries in a few of our smoke detectors decided to die at the same time this morning, causing them to chirp periodically. This sound always terrifies our dog, so he jumped on me for comfort. It took about an hour to get him to calm down after I gutted the smoke alarms to get them to stop making the noise.
After some cuddles, assurances the monsters were dead, and quick walk outside to sniff some plants (Shaggy not me), he finally calmed down but I could not get back to sleep. I have been a bit scatterbrained (more than my usual) since then.
I did some "just for fun" videos on TikTok and one book recommendation video just to try to wake up, did not help. Neither did the half a pot of coffee. I am not a nap person. If I fall asleep now, I will just be out for the count and then be up all night again. I will just drag it out until bedtime tonight and crash then.
Now on to a little bit of business. I just had an amazing interview with psychological thriller author, Val Collins last night. Her interview will be on next Wednesday's Book Banter with Dianne Burckhardt podcast. I wish I could claim sleep deprivations last night, but I guess I will just have to go with Murphy's Law was in rare form!
After a wonderful interview, I went to turn off the recording so we could just have a bit of a private chat before saying goodbye ending the interview session. What actually happened was I clicked the wrong button and just ended up hanging up on Val.
I opened the room back up and waited a bit to see if she might log back on but she did not. I sent an email straight away to explain what happened and that I am never that intentionally rude to guest authors, but I got a error message back so I am not sure if she got the email at all ... which is odd because that was the same email we had used to go back and forth to set up the interview. It did show up in my sent folder so ... fingers crossed she got it and doesn't think I that rude.
Luckily, the interview was finished and it was so good. Be sure to check it out this next Wednesday! While you are checking out the podcast, the interview I had with women's fiction author, C. D'Angelo is still streaming as the most recent guest author interview. She is just delightful and you will love her energy and her books! Check it out this weekend, you will not regret it.
Coming up in March we will have visual storyteller/artist Kirstie Page visiting Book Banter with Dianne Burckhardt. She uses art to bring her hidden stories to life. Her work can be found for sale as original art pieces, prints, on greeting cards, housewares and is just incredible!
Following Kirstie, we will have a two part interview with my friend, one of the few men I know who has almost as many legal names as I do, author, screenwriter, director, playwrite, and man about town, Lance Steen Anthony Nielsen. In part one, we will talk about his sci-fi book series and in part two we will focus on his screenwriting and the scripts he has been publishing in book formats. I have enjoyed working with him on a few of his book cover layout.
As far as my own books, I have just finished another chapter in Family Ties, part seven of the Into the West Saga Serial. This is the final book in this serial. I have been working on research for my next book I will be writing as Dianne Burckhardt, The Touch.
So much is happening this year with Burckhardt Books and and our Book Banter with Dianne Burckhardt podcast. Be sure to sign up for our mailing list so you never miss a podcast, blog, vlog, or publication dates for books.
