Editing and formatting are complete on The Challenge, the second book in the Gulliver Station series. How do you like the cover? The manuscript has been entered on both Smashwords and CreateSpace so will be available shortly. For those of you new to my blog, Smashwords is an ebook publishing site and distributes to many ebook vendors like Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and others. It also puts my stories on library lists and book lists that book stores buy from. CreateSpace is an Amazon owned publishing venue. It gives me a paper copy as well as a Kindle copy of my book. In a day or two, The Challenge will be up on Amazon. It takes a little longer for Smashwords to get it distributed out to the other vendors, though if you want an ebook version right away it’s up on Smashwords now.
What else is going on?
Hubby is power washing our wooden fence. It had never been painted or stained and the wood had turned grey with black streaks. Once he finishes washing it (what he’s done looks better already) we’ll paint or stain it. There’s a lot of fence to do but he takes the job in stages and eventually, it will be washed.
Spring is here in Arizona. My peach and nectarine trees have already bloomed. The pear trees are in bloom now. The apples will be another week or so, they just began to bud out. The early daffodils have come and gone, the mid-season ones are in bloom now. I have been so busy getting my books out that I haven’t even looked at my garden seed catalogs. It’s time for me to get my seed order in and get my tomatoes and peppers and eggplant started. I love being able to step out of my back door and pick fresh stuff for dinner. I’m tickled every time I do it. I’ve already been harvesting green onion, parsley, swiss chard, chives and oregano. How cool is that?

Kobo: Not Available Yet. I’m working with their Help Desk to resolve whatever the issue is that is preventing A New Start from being listed. I’m crossing my fingers that it doesn’t affect The Challenge.
