A very quiet Easter Sunday here in Texas. I spent the soft, gray Sunday morning writing, answering email, and working on an extra materials piece for the trade paperback edition of Necessary as Blood. Then on to tax prep, with breaks to help Rick repair winter weather damage to our sprinkler system. We had take away (not home-made!) pizza for Easter dinner. Not very traditional, but a nice day, nonetheless, with a bit of reflection. I sat out on the deck, sipping a late afternoon cup of Buckingham Palace Garden Party tea with the dogs and their buddy Tink, the cat. This was a nice lull before the storm of the next few days, preparing for Thursday’s departure for a month in the UK and Germany.
I’ll spend a few days in London recovering from the inevitable jet lag, then off to Germany on the 13th for a tour promoting the German edition of Necessary as Blood. Munich, Hamburg, Stuttgart, and Hanover–this is my first tour in Germany and I’m very excited to see new cities and meet German fans. NAB is #12 on the bestseller list in Germany this week!
Then I’ll be back in London for two and a half weeks, getting a much needed Brit fix and writing like mad. Last stop is three days in Henley, doing a last bit of research for the book-in-progress, No Mark Upon Her.
Now that I’m all connected (blog, Facebook) I’ll post from the road.
Happy Easter, everyone!
