New Moon

The weather has finally turned the corner here with a high today in the 80's and a cobalt blue sky. With the clear skies and new moon the star show will be spectacular tonight. Looking forward to May and summer, though I have three business trips before June 1. I really hate travel anymore, but, I'm lucky to be working. Until the full flower moon.

Full Pink Moon April 9

Nearing the Full Pink Moon on Thursday but somehow it doesn't seem like Spring here. We picked up 5 inches of Lake-effect snow and I heard on the radio that the PA Turnpike was closed between Exits 13 and 28. April snows are always bad because, for some reason, drivers forget how to navigate on slippery roads after experiencing a few warm and sunny weeks.

Yukon still looks like a polar bear with his winter coat but he'll be shedding soon. In kind, I shaved off my beard last Friday and I think that's what jinxed us into a cold spell. Like washing your car brings on the rain.

Pray for warm weather !

Back in the Saddle-yikes!

Well I'm back after a LONG hiatus (Oct 08). I had planned for this time to ramp up my writing and made a little progress. I've resurrected two works-in-progress novels. One is Sci-fi taking placed in the Amazon Highlands. The other is a supernatural tale set in the Nevada reservations.

Good news-I am nearing an agreement with my publisher, Wild Child Publishing, on getting Beckoned into print. I love the eBook version and they have done a superb job so far but getting in print can only help with sales to those who still prefer traditional in-your-hand books.

More later
