Good morning, Everyone. Fall has officially arrived on the south shore of Long Island. Cool temperatures, low humidity and autumn colors abound! Pour your brew. Let’s catch up.
If we were having coffee together, I would say that Matt and I sail the Bella Vela on the Great South Bay on these beautiful autumn days. We spent a day and night at Davis Park where Matt caught a herring and I got my last full body immersion swim for the year. The only sad thing about autumn is that the days are short and we need to plan to get the boats out of the water and tucked in for the winter.
If we were having coffee together, I would continue the boat theme and report that the hunt for a family pontoon boat in Florida did not pan out. Aunts, uncles, cousins and my mom spend time together in Florida during the winter. Since my dad’s name came up on the condo’s boat basin list, we all thought to go in on a boat together, sharing the fun and honoring my dad’s spirit. Besides, the price of the boat slip was too good to pass up. My cousins, Gloria and George, and I went down as a re-cognizant team. After searching for a boat and the logistics in keeping a boat in Florida, we concluded that sharing the upkeep, hauling and storage far exceeded the bargain price of the boat slip. We decided that, at this time in our majority non-retired state, renting a boat for a day or two per visit was more economical and practical.
If we were having coffee together, I would report that The Wishes of Sisters and Strangers Book 3 will be out in the world on November 7th. This is the final book in the Becoming America’s Stories series and it is a holiday story. If you are interested in reading an Advanced Reader’s Copy (ARC), you can download this link. All I ask in return is for an honest review. You can post on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and/or your Goodreads account on launch day. I will keep you in the loop as we get closer to November 7th.
If you want to catch up on Books 1 and 2, The Heart of Bakers and Artists and The Dreams of Singers and Sluggers, you can download an ePub version, FREE, to your electronic reader.
Reviews would be appreciated.
If we were having coffee together, I would ask if any of you Indie Children’s Book Authors out there would like to be my guest blogger for What’s Your Writing Story? (#whatsyourwritingstory).
That’s it! Time for a coffee refill. How was your week?
Have a good week, Everyone. Make it Funtastic!
Enjoy ❤️. Like 👍. Share 😊.
