April Newsletter… Spring Changes

March’s introduction of spring and the changes it ushered turned into a whirlwind for my wife and me. We ended the month, purchasing a new home in Milledgeville, Georgia, and to our surprise, sold our old home in Grantville in less than three weeks from contract to closing—above list price. But that entailed a frantic couple of weeks of packing and moving 110 miles to our new home. See the newsletter below in the newsletter for more details and a photo.

Somewhere amid the hustle of spring changes, we enjoyed four days on Sapelo Island with old and new friends and stayed at the Reynolds Mansion. We arrived back a day before the truck hauled our earthly belongings and a ton of books from Grantville to Milledgeville. Two weeks later, our new house is taking shape, thanks to my gifted and energetic wife, just in time to catch a plane to Dublin for a long expected tour of the Emerald Isle. After our overseas adventure, we will attempt to settle back into a less frantic, helter-skelter lifestyle. I’ve writing projects to complete and plenty of honey-dos to tackle.

Oh yeah, the Saturday right after our move, I raced back to Newnan for a successful Easter Weekend author event at Barnes & Noble, Ashley Park, Newnan. The following Saturday, I raced back to Carrollton for the Carrollton BookFest, where I presented the research behind the writing of a historical novel. Thanks to Bookmiser, the event bookseller, several of my books found new homes throughout the day, while I touched base with several author friends. Rick Bragg, Hank Phillippi Ryan, Deborah Royce, and Terah Harris were the featured speakers during the day. Thank you Carrollton Writers Guild, Bookmiser, and Magic Time Literary Agency for putting together such a successful event.

I’ll be visiting Horton’s Books & Gifts in Carrollton for MayFest, May 4th. Did you know Horton’s is the oldest bookstore in Georgia? There’s a good reason, and that reason makes it worth the drive to visit.
