As I've said, I've not really been able to write. I have the attention span of a gnat lately and can't seem to read nor write more than a paragraph.
I know it will change, but it's frustrating.
I had a great moment at the library today. A woman brought a load of books back to be checked in. The Silver Cord was one of them. She is a really nice woman and a voracious reader so I offhandedly asked her what she thought of the book.
She said, "I liked it. It's not normally what I read, but I liked it."
I asked, "Paranormal you mean?"
She answered, "Yes, but I believe in it. Why, did you read it?"
I said, "I wrote it."
"Give me that back!" she said, "There's no picture in it!"
(I had to laugh at that, it's one of my mom's comments/questions, "Why isn't your picture in it?")
And then the library patron went on to tell me how much she liked it.
Moments like that are incredibly fun as a librarian and even better as an author.
I like to know what people honestly think of it. Not sugar coat it because they know me.
In other news from 2 months ago...St. Simon's Island was amazing to visit and I want to check it out again. I took a ton of photos. You HAVE to! I love the beach/ocean and haven't seen it in years so I was so excited to go there for work.
So my (also librarian) friend with a bitchin' camera went to the beach with me while we were at St. Simon's Island on "official library business". She took some really cool photos of me, and while this has nothing to do with the challenge, the photos turned out wonderfully and I really appreciate her taking them.
My mood at the time was reflected by the ocean and sky. Morose, I know (Lighten up, right?!)
Thank you Julia Simpson, photographer, Librarian extraordinaire, and awesome friend in karaoke emergencies! :)
FYI for those of you in the Atlanta area, check out my book signing at Phoenix & Dragon on June 25th from 2-4 PM there will be a basket of goodies!!!
Enjoy the photos by me and Julia.
