Here is what I should be doing:
Sowing grass seed where a blow-up pool killed the grass in my backyard.
Cutting weeds out of the bushes against my house.
Vacuuming the finished section of the basement.
Clearing clutter out of my house.
Washing my car.
Here is what I’m actually doing on this cool early Fall day:
Sitting in my sunroom in my house slippers writing a story.

In a little over a week I’ll be signing books at Penned Con 2018 in St. Louis. This is a really down-to-earth con with two giant rooms packed with authors and readers. You can talk books with real people for two days straight! There’s also a theme dinner, auctions, games, and drawings. Tons of fun. Check out the details here, and come!
I haven’t read any Seriously Good Books lately but ohmigosh do I have a movie to recommend to you.
I Am Dragon

I watched it on Amazon Prime but you might find it elsewhere.
It’s Russian, and in Russian, so you’ll get English subtitles but the language is beautiful and can’t be missed. I won’t tell you anything else about it other than it’s an old-fashioned fairy tale that’s darkly romantic, with great costumes and scenery, good acting, and a great love story. Just watch it.
Did you notice THE ALIGNMENT had a little update to its cover? As much as I loved the original, I think I might love this one even more…
