Has It Been That Long?

Wow! I'm embarrassed that it has been so long since I have updated my blog. Please forgive me, it will be more regular before long.

What have I been doing? Traveling and packing. This is getting old fast, but we see a light at the end of the tunnel.

It seems we have been to Kentucky about every week-end. I enjoy my children and grandchildren, but the traveling is getting to me. I am so thankful that I now have a C pap machine and I am resting much better. I don't think I could have made the trips without it.

My living room is packed except for lamps and a few items. One guest bedroom is pretty well packed also and the master bath is looking good. I need to tackle the kitchen today.

Yesterday I talked to the couple we bought the house from and they were to get the last of the things out last night. We will have keys tomorrow and can start moving our things in. First we have to paint and take down wallpaper boarders. I'm not a big wallpaper person, but I do have one I want to put up in the family room. It's more me, lighthouses.

What about my book? Well, I received a rejection letter from Bethany House. Harvest House wants me to finish editing and send another proposal. That sounded more interesting to me. At least that was not a rejection. She told me to take my time because, "unless the Lord comes first, we'll be here."

Bethany House said they did not feel they had a market of a series about Melungeon's because they are not well known. I understand that it is going to be a hard series to sell. Right now I am considering changing the series to something else. I could make it the Clinch Mountain Series or the Appalachian Mountain Series. I haven't decided yet. It could be East Tennessee Mountain Series or Tennessee Mountain Series. Any suggestions would be welcome.

For the next couple of weeks, I will be out in space somewhere. Our date to move almost completely out is December 3. Beware Kentucky, we're moving in.
