Welcome to another Book Marketing Update.
It’s summer! While fall is my favorite season, this summer is ushering in a lot of changes into my life. First, I’m moving!
No, I’m not moving to Spain or anything exotic like that. But I’m moving to the opposite side of town where I’ll be just half a mile from a beautiful park and a place to walk four miles every morning alongside a lake.
And, I have a puppy. He’s an English Labrador (all of my Labs are black) and a total love bug. Puppies’ brains grow quickly so it’s a prime time for training.
What new changes are being ushered into your life? I’d love to hear from you.
