The Fabulist Flash #210

This was a social week. I was invited to a swanky book release party. The book was the annual Las Vegas Business Press' Book of Lists. The party was held at one of the new $1M+ home developments in the valley. The house was, to say the very least, incredible. I've added it to my wish list! The party, with great food and beverages, was great fun. It was nice to hob-knob with the Vegas literary and business elite. It also provides an idea for future book release events, why not take advantage of… Continue

The Fabulist Flash #209

I went to San Diego last weekend to hear Esther Hicks/Abraham speak. It was a thrill. Plus, I had two glorious days of driving. I returned home filled with new ideas and inspiration.

As I continue to edit my NaNoWriMo novel, I’ve found myself thinking about a sequel. So, this week I got back to my 2000 word-a-day habit. It feels good to be pounding at the keyboard again!

With the recent release of Patchwork Path: Grandma’s Choice, I’ve gotten to visit my friends at the… Continue

Fabulist Flash 208

Most weeks there's some news, but this week's news is huge! The speaker catalog I co-founded, Presenters & Programs, has been mailed out to 30,000 meeting and event planners. It's so exciting to know that something I helped create will be seen by so many people in short order. Even better, knowing that I'll be feeling this same sense of excitement in another year when the 2010 version of the catalog goes out. If you'd like to see our handy work, check out the high resolution PDF version at:… Continue

Fabulist Flash #207

Happy New Year!

I always begin a new year with anticipation. I know that there will be many new experiences and projects to look forward to and that prospect is thrilling.

The big news this week is that I picked up the first printing of Patchwork Path: Grandma's Choice. It's a lovely first volume for this series. One of my favorite things in life is going to the post office to ship off books that have been ordered. The trip this week was no exception. It felt great to wait… Continue

This Week 206

This Week 206

Happy Holidays!

It's been another exciting week. Patchwork Path: Grandma's Choice, the first of the new Patchwork Path series, has been printed. Instead of waiting for freight shipment, I'll be driving down to our California printer on Monday to pick up the books. We had a fun mailing party this week where, along with a group of friends, we stuffed, labeled, and stamped about 800 envelopes for both a wholesale and retail mailing campaign.

The… Continue
