This past week I was able to go with my hubby on a business trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico.
At the gorgeous ABQ Uptown outdoor mall.
I grew up in San Jose, California and I never thought I'd have the chance to actually go to Albuquerque. It brings back a childhood memory of listening to a Partridge Family song over and over and over and over . . .
I have so many memories of my sister and I singing along with this song as children. We always yelled the word ALBUQUERQUE at the top of our lungs. And I have no recollection of my mother ever telling us to keep it down. She's a saint!
Great childhood memory.
I still love this song to this day!!
I love going with my hubby on business trips. It gives me a chance to have a bit of a writer's retreat. While he tends to his business, I sit in the hotel room ALL DAY and work on my writing, uninterrupted. There are no distractions and I get so much done. As a matter of fact, my newest book, GIRL OF MINE, is nearly complete. Time to do some serious editing. I will announce a release date when the book is ready.
My daughter completed the first draft of the cover and I LOVE it!
She also sent me the first mock up of the back cover, which cracked me up . . .
Yes, it says GIRL ON MINE, instead of GIRL OF MINE.
And I need to come up with a REALLY AWESOME TAGLINE.
And I've already slightly changed the blurb. But I love the silly "quotes" she put in there!
The back cover is definitely a work in progress! But I love sharing this kind of stuff with my readers. It shows the progression from the early concepts and designs to the final product.
That being said . . . GIRL OF MINE, coming soon!
When we arrived home from our trip, we found that our two computer monitors refused to turn back on. Hence, we made a hasty trip to Best Buy and now I have one HUGE monitor that allows me to have several items open and in view at one time. I love it! It makes my writing life so much easier.
Have a great Monday, everyone!
