I'm back home in Utah, leaving Mother in the care of my sisters who live out there near her. I miss her every minute and want to be with her. Needless to say, it just doesn't feel right to be posting about my usual things. My heart isn't in it. Yesterday I went to write and schedule my Monday rant, and instead I redesigned my blog. So rather than carry on with the usual routine here, or just drop out for a time, I wanted to let you all know what's going on.
Once things are settled with my mom, then I'll get back to business. I'll have things to report on with the website for authors, and the authors ready and excited about launching with it. I'll be back to ranting on Mondays. I'll be wanting to know how you all did on NaNoWriMo-- (doesn't look like I'll do it this time.) I have some book reviews and interviews to do in support of some awesome authors.
But until then, here's some photos of my mom, Lucille Marker Jones, the "farm girl". Can I even express how thankful I am that I got this book done while she was strong and healthy, with her memories intact? And at 90 years old, still able to go with me to Nebraska for a book tour!
This last photo was taken in May when she flew out to Utah for my daughter's wedding. Isn't she cute?
