Two Weeks Of Books and a LOT of Mud … Time To Tell You About Them

2aa

I am home.  Wiped out.  Tired.  Lots to do.  Home.

Friday I drove with my friend Amy to a hotel in the cities to meet up with Jennifer and Jody, the other two girls that we were doing the mud run in Wisconsin with on Saturday morning.  It was a lot of fun and I will have pics up later of the mud run – we use old school disposable camera’s because.. well it’s mud. And lots of water we jump in, swim in… and well, more mud.

Then… after the Mud Run we drove to Shakopee Minnesota to drop Amy off with friends for Canterbury Downs (horse races!) and I hurried home to shower, change, pack, and head to Crosslake Minnesota for day two of the Camp Benedict AIDS bike ride.  I did not ride as I had missed day one and did not want to have my car and bike and have to figure out how to get the car back home, 40 miles away.  I did go to cheer on the riders and spend time with friends.  I was tired but it was good to catch up with everyone and I seen them off this morning as they started their ride.

So now I am home and need to get in my office and get some work done.  I have work to do on the book and I need as much time as possible in the office this week to make the deadline coming up.  Here are the books that came in the house the past two weeks:

  1. That’s a pretty big book load. How long do you think it will take you to read them?

  2. What a wonderful selection of books – I’m coveting the Ian McEwan.

  3. Sounds like you had a great weekend! I see a few new to me books so I’ll have to check them out.

  4. I am eagerly awaiting The Children Act…sounds like my kind of read.

  5. That’s a lot! How do you keep up with all that??? I see your bookshelves in the background. They must really be overflowing. Well, maybe not in that nice new library room you have. 🙂

  6. I cannot imagine sloshing around in mud like that! You have a deadline for your book? Do you have a contract? Did I miss something?

    • The mud is fun 😀 Not a book deadline but an opportunity deadline. There is a publication opportunity for those with new manuscripts to submit and have a series of publishing companies look at and pick the best of the best to move on to publishing and marketing. Laura from Clean Reads told me about it – deadline to submit is August 13th. Its cutting it very tight but I have to try!

  7. I always love your mud run pics … hurry up and post them!

  8. You do the most fun and crazy stuff! Good for you! That’s a great stack of books.

  9. I’ve always wanted to do a mud run – it looks like so much fun! have a great week!

  10. That’s a busy weekend! Here’s hoping you can settle into your week.

  11. I hope you enjoy One Mountain Away as much as I did Sheila! And I must have missed something — are you writing a book?!

  12. I’m curious about your thoughts on the audio of Lucky Us. I listened to it last week.
