After an eighteen-month hiatus, I’m pleased to be back with the Inspy Romance authors. The last post I made here on the blog was in 2017 just a few days before we took a month-long trip to Australia and New Zealand. I’d love to share all of my photos, but I’ll settle for just one.
I’m up close and personal with a koala bear. It was just one of the highlights of my trip. Also at this same animal preserve, a kangaroo kicked me. I’m sorry, but there are no photos of that to share. Hubby wasn’t prepared with a camera when it happened.
The first photo was taken in Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. Last April, we went with friends and visited all five national parks in Utah. The scenery is varied and spectacular, God’s handiwork on display. Besides, these two trips we made several trips to the east coast of the US to see our daughters and their families. Now that they both live on the east coast, we’ll be racking up the airline miles to visit them. A trip to see our daughter in Baltimore also included a trip to Washington, DC, and a visit to the Museum of the Bible. If you get a chance, it’s a must-see museum. Here is a photo of some of the translations of the Bible. There may be even more since our visit. The Wycliffe Bible Translators are a very important part of making many of these translations, but as you can see from the photo, there is still lots of work to do.
I could share so many more trips, but I’ll spare you the vacation photos for now. You’ll probably see more in future blog posts. I’ll share just one more from our latest trip, a cruise to the Panama Canal. Here is a photo as we approached the first lock.
Besides traveling, I’ve been writing. During our trips, my trusty computer travels with me, and I grab whatever time I have to get a little writing in. While we were in Australia, I did the final edits for A Song to Call Ours before sending it off to my editor. Also on that trip, the story idea for the next book in my Front Porch Promises series, A Baby to Call Ours, came to me almost full-blown, and that rarely happens because I am not a plotter.
I’ve also received the rights back for several of my Love Inspired books, and I have been reissuing them. The three books in the Kellersburg series are already available. You can read a little story behind the story about that series here. Now I’m in the process of reissuing the books in my Dalton Brothers series. Book two of the series, Country Blessings, releases today. You can find buy links here.
What do you like best about books in a series?
I am giving away an e-book copy of the first book in my Kellersburg series, Hometown Promise, to one person who leaves a comment. I will draw a winner on April 11, 2019 at 9PM MST.
