Summer is thundering by like a freight train, leaving backyard parties and BBQs in the din of its wake. Thankfully, it still has a full head of steam with miles of summer ground yet to travel. And what a glorious summer it’s been so far, with good company, an abundant fruit crop, and plenty of fresh salmon.
Living on Denman Island with roadside produce stands and a thriving Saturday market, we mark the passing season by which fruit crop is ripening. First came the cherries, then the loganberries and blueberries. We started picking blackberries a week ago, about the same time the transparent apples started falling from the trees, and yesterday we harvested the apricots.
Happily, the abundance doesn’t stop there. In book news, I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Karen Oberlaender. Check out our conversation in her short and snappy “Ten Statements” format. It’s a crafty cheat sheet for authors. And yesterday, I learned of two new five-star reviews. One for Revelation here, and another for Redemption here. The next book in the Gift Legacy series, The Gift: Betrayal, is currently in the hands of Nina Munteanu, editor extraordinaire, and while I await its return, I’ve started on the cover.
Abundance all around, and I couldn’t be more grateful. With thanks…
How is your summer playing out?
