Going to be brief today–have much to do!

Spent yesterday with the “senior saints” of our church–had a great time! We just spent a relaxing time doing a Q&A–they asked questions and I answered! I love the wisdom and fun those folks are so willing to share.

Hard at work on a new project now called “Five Miles South of Peculiar.” The title was born when I made it up and mentioned it in a book–I think I had a character reading it–and heaven help me, I can’t remember which book it was.

But then a reader wrote me and said, “I can’t find ‘Five Miles South of Peculiar’ anywhere! Is it a real book?” I wrote her back and said no, it wasn’t, but now it soon will be! 🙂

Several of you have asked about ‘the train story’–that one has been sent back to the drawing board and placed on temporary hiatus. I’m going to go back and work on it some more, but I need to get some emotional distance before I jump in again.

So–I need to jump back into my work, so I’m going to have to lay off the aprons and cupcaking for a while, as much as I’ve enjoyed them. But never fear–the new book will have both aprons and cupcakes in it! (And maybe even a recipe or two!)
Have a lovely day!

    There’s a town called Peculiar in MO. I always thought it would be fun to live in a town called Peculiar.

    Sorry to hear about the train story. Can’t imagine what could be needing redrawn.

    The train story sounded so good! I hope to read it. If anyone can make it all come together, it is you!
