Only K will be heading north later today. His friend's band is playing tonight, and hubby doesn't want to spend the night. Am I disappointed? Sure...I wanted to go up and see my friends. But there's a BSA camp-out and Court of Honor, and I'm hoping it coincides with the local Fish Fry. With these stupid gas prices, I still haven't made it back to the hometown to promote my second book!
I have several opportunities coming up, praying that the van is running, gas money is available, and people are willing to let me sleep at their house.
Aug 2nd: Local Watermelon Festival, and I think my parents are coming down for the weekend.
Aug 15-17: Indiana State Fair. My friends Tracy and Travis will be there Saturday, when the Indiana Horror Writers have their day in the Author Showcase; my slot is on Sunday. Maybe I'll be able to finally swing by both Borders stores and do a signing at one or both? Or even Friday evening???
Aug 22-23: BSA Camp out/Court of Honor. If the Fish Fry is that same weekend, I could set up Friday night and Saturday afternoon, until time for the BSA pitch-in.
In September, I'd like to do the Monrovia Festival, the Anderson Orchard Festival, as well as the huge author event at the B&N in Evansville. And also be able to make the trip up to Ft. Wayne and do the event I missed in May.
And yesterday I found out that our county has a Fall Festival in October. I also have another signing on the 3rd.
November is my parents' 45th wedding anniversary. I joked last month that if my 1st adult book is accepted and released (I know...I'm stretching it here!), we could have the 'Launch Party' at Nicky's in Estes Park, Colorado.
So that's what I'm looking forward to in the coming months. What about you? Or do you try to plan that far ahead?
Since it's Saturday, I'm going to go shower and get to work on hubby's laundry. And buy my books later today!
