I promised an update before I left back in March. I've been in touch with several of you since I left, and a couple wondered when I would return. I've been busy working on two books: Where Eagles Soar and Destination Love. I finished the fix-edit for Where Eagles Soar and started on the next major edit for the book. I need to get the POV corrected next with the book. Destination Love is the next one I will publish after Where Eagles Soar. I expect both to come out next year. In the meantime, I'm in the pool almost daily, and with the exercise class three times a week. I'm also doing rock painting again. I had a wonderful birthday party where I gave rocks to everyone who came. I gave away many rocks, which gives me the opportunity to paint even more and build up my collection again. I still do my daily Bible study. I started a new study a little over a month ago. I also added several people to my e-mail contacts who expressed they wanted me to add them to my list. In another month we'll be in my favorite seasons of the year, fall followed by winter. I'll be so happy to see summer leave. I'm seeing a few leaves changing color, so it won't be long now. Only a few more weeks. I know in some parts of the country school has already started. We start next week. With the return of school and fall, football season is upon us. We lost the first pre-season game to the 49ers. So, the football rivalry is back between @theHorse and me. We've been messaging lately. Okay, that's what's happening with me. I hope you're all doing well. I don't know when I'll bring another update. Thanks for reading. The image belongs to me. A deer on my side of the building.

I was wondering where you went. On some of the posts, I got an update about your being busy. Glad to hear from you. You seem to be busy in your life these days. Hope we will see you here not frequently but just to know that you're fine.

Hi, Valerie. I have not been here consistently. But you are one of dear friends here I Iook up when I'm here to visit. I'm so happy about your amazing books. Congratulations! I do admire you. Do you use Scriviner in structuring and outlining your novels? How do you come up with amazing stories? Advice, please?

Thank you for the wonderful compliment. No, I don't use Scrivener. I've heard of it. I always have ideas. I have two new ones I'm working on, and one not written down yet. My advice - When an idea forms, write it down. You never know where it will lead.

There she is. My sweet friend. So happy to see you. By the way, I sent you an email a few weeks ago about my surgery and it was returned. Has it changed? You can message me here if you want. Happy late Birthday. So happy about your books and how well things are going for you. Love the photo. Take care of yourself.
For a long time, I was wondering why you have been inactive. Then recently during a discussion, I came to know from DE that you have taken a break to devote more time for the books. Glad to see you back here. Rock Painting would be an exciting thing to do. I am sure that it is thoroughly enjoyable. Have a nice time ahead.

I was planning to e-mail you this week, to find out how you're doing. Rock painting is a very nice pastime! I've seen painted rocks outside our public library, a couple times:) We have deer coming in at night, I can hear them chomping on the flowers! lol I'm glad you are doing so well

I was wondering about your absence. And I did think that it must be something related to your books keeping you busy. And I am glad that it was the reason and not something to worry about. Happy to get the updates. You sound so busy, active, cheerful,and in good spirits.. I hope that we get to see you more active here. Enjoy your rock painting. It's a lovely engagement and they do make lovely gifts. Take care . Wishing you all the best for your books
