Have you all survived the time change?
Personally, I can’t stand it. The only thing I like about the change is that it will be lighter out later in the day. That allows for after dinner walks, bicycle rides, and just hanging out on the front porch.
A few items before I get to the photo challenge.
First: “The Silver Cord” is up for the The Romance Reviews Readers' Choice Awards - Summer 2016!
Voting starts TODAY:
The Silver Cord has to garner at least 50 nominations within the time period in order to qualify for the next and final round. The nomination will start on March 14 and end on March 31. You can nominate the book here: http://www.theromancereviews.com/viewbooks.php?bookid=19410
PLEASE vote! Shockingly, I know more than 50 people so I’m hoping that this will be a breeze, but you never know. I’m sorry in advance if it requires you to sign up for the site, leave an email address, or your firstborn, but if you could vote – I’d be thrilled!!
Next: My publisher is having a contest for their authors. Whoever sells the most books in the next month wins a prize. I have no clue what the prize is, but I’m willing to give it a shot. So buy my book! Either ebook or paperback – they both count.
Last but not least: If you want a book signed, let me know by sending me an email on the contact page or private message me on Twitter. If you want to have a book club Skype visit, again, let me know via contact page. I’d be thrilled to “visit”.
Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous out (for the most part) it was 80 degrees and sunny with little bouts of rain. I went on a nice 3 mile walk by the lake with my kids and of course took a load of photos. But today’s photo challenge is silhouette and while on a walk down my road, I took a picture of a tree that I liked, so I’ll be using that one. As much as I love nature and taking photos of it, it is getting difficult coming up with stories about it without them all sounding the same. I’m going to have to take some photos in town or some still life pictures to change it up.
Here is what I have left of the challenge (other than today). Since I am doing it weekly versus daily, it feels like it is taking forever. I might double up some weeks like when I went to Atlanta last week. I guess it depends on the subjects and challenges.

He reached up and grabbed the next branch. The sun was in his eyes and his heart was in his throat. His mother was busy talking on the phone, she had no idea he had climbed up so high. He could see the cows in the pasture next door. They swatted at flies with their tails, indifferent to what he had accomplished. A new calf bounced around the sole stoic bull, much like he bounded around his mother, both of the young just vying for attention. Well, climbing this tree would surely get her to put her phone down and look at him. Just one more branch higher and he would get to the top...
