Mark Your Calendars!

I'm going to be busy the next couple of weeks. This weekend is my niece's 5th birthday party. I found the "bestest" present! It's T.J.'s Bearytales. He holds a book as reads to your child while your child reads along. He moves and blinks. Each book has a cartridge and some have a flashlight that he turns on and a camera. He's very cool, and he reads! As a lover of books, I believe instilling that love in children is important, and this seems like a really great toy. I had my cart full and ready to check out when I noticed him, and stood there a while contemplating whether or not to buy him. I'd already spent too much money, but I couldn't resist. He's so cute!

It's hard buying Christmas and birthday so close together, and since I'm not a mother and she's my only niece, I probably go a little overboard. :)

What's coming up for me:

On Saturday, November 18, I will be at Ebook Love from 11AM-1PM CST. December 2, I'll be at Sweeter Romantic Notions from 5-7 PM CST, other Wild Rose Press authors will be there throughout the day.

Seems like there's other stuff going on, but I can't remember right now. I need another cup of coffee.

My boys have their birthdays Nov. 15th and Nov.18th. It is difficult to buy stuff so close to Christmas.
Have fun and see you at SRN.

Emma, Your story about your mother was very touching. You ought to write it for a magazine article before Halloween next year. Good luck on your writing! You've got a super start! :)
