About my progress at Camp NaNo. As I mentioned last week, I finished Mystery at the Reunion. I’ve picked up All About Home, the 5th book in my YA contemporary series All About Bob. It’s moving right along though I didn’t work too much on it last week. This week I hope to pick it back up and get lots of words written. I find I’m enjoying the story very much and at the sad parts, actually had tears. So I’m getting the emotion in it anyway.
This is a busy meeting week for me as I have a committee meeting for the book festival, the Gila Community College board meeting, the chapter meeting for Arizona Professional Writers and the APW annual conference. All three will be Zoom meetings but still, that’s a lot.
I’ve been posting my poetry on my Medium page. I hope you enjoy them. You can find it at: https://ccockrellauthor.medium.com/
Please be careful out there. Weather can turn nasty, accidents can happen, illness can overtake us. Till we can meet in person, stay at home when you can and wear a mask when you go out.

Where will I Be?
On May 13th at 2pm Arizona time, I’ll be on the podcast with Laurie Fagan on her show, AZ Creates. It’s a lovely podcast and as soon as I have the link for my interview, I’ll put it up. In the meantime, enjoy her show at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teajmtQ4-90&feature=youtu.be. Note, Karen Landau is a mystery author right here in my town! How great is that!
On July 17th, I’ll be at the Payson Book Festival! Yes!! That’s correct! The Payson Book Festival is now a GO! Details are being resolved, but you’ll be able to visit us, in person, meet authors, and have some fun picking out your next books to read. See more at http://www.PaysonBookFestival.org.
