Wow. I thought I was busy in June while I was touring for my latest mystery. But it’s been non-stop hectic ever since I returned home June 27th.
First, I had to finish the last revision on the mystery-in-progress and get that express mailed to editor on June 30th. Then---I had barely started sorting through the mail waiting, bills, etc when company arrived! My daughter from New York, Melissa, came for a extended July 4th holiday visit, which was fun. But the door had barely closed on her departure when I returned to that pile of “stuff” that I had to catch up on. Yikes! I swear those piles accumulate and grow while we’re gone.
And yesterday, I just received an email from my oldest daughter, Christine, who plans to visit this coming Saturday for a few days with family. Good thing I’d already scheduled the carpets to be cleaned tomorrow morning.
So---schedules are definitely taking a hit this month.
But—I did receive some really, really great news while I was touring last month. Concerning bestseller lists for the latest mystery, DYER CONSEQUENCES, and for the paperback edition of last year’s mystery, A KILLER STITCH. If you’re interested, it’s posted on my website. www.maggiesefton.com. Make sure you scroll down. Some of the news floored me. It was a good thing I was sitting down at the time.
