News . . . .

Here are a few exciting things that have been happening lately . . . .

- Writing!  The second proof copy for our poetry book came today!  Now we will just have to review it and make sure all is good, before the process is finished.
- I'm getting my braces off in FIVE days!  Very excited about that.  It's been 15 or 16 months. . .
- I have been wanting to find a volleyball camp this summer - we finally found one at a nearby high school!  I will be doing that soon.  I am hoping to be in Sumner's V.B. team in the fall, so this will be a really good experience beforehand.

It's been a good and busy week!  I have been reading a ton also.  One great book I just finished is the Bronze Bow.  A historical fiction set back in the time of Jesus.  Books have been coming in and out of my house very quickly lately.  I've set a goal to read at least 66 books this summer.  So far.....I've finished about 13 (since May 20).

Have a great weekend!

Book Update

So, for an update on the book-to-be!   Last week we got our proof copy to review 5 days earlier than predicted!  That was a great surprise.  And the book looks great!  It is a really cool thing to hold your own work in actual print.  It turns out that we didn't like the original cover as much when we saw it in real life, so we went back and designed another.  This one I think fits our book way better.  We just now ordered the second proof, just to make sure we like the cover.  Hopefully the shipping goes as quickly as it did the first time, and we should have it by the end of this week!  Then all that's left is approving the file . . . . and publishing!  :)

There will be a post soon for anyone who is interested in buying a copy, and more information on everything.  We will be doing a pre-order beforehand, for anyone who confirms that they want one.  There will be a special discount on that.  So that will be up soon, probably as soon as we get our second proof in.  :)  Stay tuned!

As for our novel, Go East on No Road, we are currently wrapping up chapter 21!  We are still making really quick progress on it.  About 5 chapters per week.  One of our tentative goals is to finish it before the end of Summer - wish us luck!

Have a great week!  Looks like it's going to be pretty anyone going to the pool?  We did today.  :)
