Friday's Celebratin' Time!

It’s Friday!!! That alone is reason to celebrate, and it seems like it’ll be an absolutely beautiful weekend here in the SF Bay Area.

But there are other reasons why I’m celebrating this week for VikLit’s Celebrate the Small Things.

* I’ve got a couple author interviews lined up for local newspapers (well, one is still in the works), and still have the live blog interview scheduled for July 29th.

* Camp last weekend with my church’s singles’ group was very fun. The rafting was an all day excursion and was a blast. If anyone needs some lessons on rowing, I’m available. :) A couple of folks in my boat fell out once, but luckily I didn’t. After 5 hours, we were ready to head back to camp. My tent opened up to the river, and in the morning I’d have prayer time looking out. Here are some pics of the camp in Knight's Ferry, CA.

What a front yard!

* I’ve slowly started working more on Anticipating Dawn, the sequel to Anticipation of the Penitent. After having those initial feelings of "this is not good enough", I think I’m getting back into the groove of writing and planning out the subplots. I’ve got a seemingly reliable CP for it, so I’ve really got to get crackin'.

* The print version of Salted With Fire is just beautiful. I wish I could get the format of the eBook exactly the same, but I think it’s quite decent looking as well. So happy!

* I've written my story for Write Club while at camp as planned. I have to say I love it and hope it wins at least a few battles. Can't give out any info on the story (the contest is blind), but wish me luck! The deadline is June 30th, so there's still time to sign up.

I’ll be visiting y'all as I can over the weekend.

  4. The camp sounds wonderful. And congrats on those author events. Be sure to tell us all about those interviews.

  5. I'm not participating in Write Club because I need to see what it's all about, maybe next time. Your camp pictures are beautiful, I love to camp. Good luck with your books!!!

  6. Sounds like you had a great time and I'll keep you in mind should I need those rowing lessons :D

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  7. Yay for your author interviews. And your camping holiday sounds great. The pictures look beautiful :)

  8. Sent my Write Club entry off a couple of days ago. Good luck in the competition. Looks like you had a lovely weekend away.

  9. Camp sounds like it was a load of fun. It's been a long time since I've gone on a church excursion like that. I have many fond memories of those types of outings though. And congrats on your next book idea coming together-- that's exciting!

  10. What great pictures. Good luck with Write Club.

  11. Yay for Write Club! I signed up for the voting :) Can't wait to see the awesomeness that dukes it out. Check out my blog for updated contest info if you like to go that route. Some great agents participating in come upcoming ones :)I am so jealous of the nice weather, I am melting in Florida. I dream of moving to the west coast! Happy weekend :)

  12. Camping with the singles group sounds fun. We never took our singles group camping, but we did take them to the beach and to Busch Gardens.

  13. So glad you had a good time camping. I just love that full moon shot. And congrats on the interviews, very exciting!

    Hope you are enjoying the weekend. :)

  14. Hope your entry for Write Club goes far!

  15. Best of luck with Write Club!
    Oh, and what a great week you had. Glad you are happy with the printed version of Salted with Fire ;)

  16. Wow, what a busy week you've had. I can't believe that you rafted all day, which must have been exhausting, and still had the strength to write a story for the Write Club. Good luck with it! :-)

  17. That camp looks like great fun. Congrats on the newspaper interviews. I wish our papers did things like that. I have to investigate a little more.

  18. Gorgeous pictures! That sounds like so much fun.

    Good luck with WRiTE CLUB :D
