It has been a challenge to write. Frannie and Larry take a camphosting job in an Iowa Park in May 2020. The parks at that time were experimenting with reopening the campgrounds in a safe manner with a number of COVID protocols in place. My Beta readers were extremely helpful. Two have camphosting experience, one is a diehard camper, one also writes mysteries but also spent five months as a contact tracer at the beginning of the pandemic, and one is a retired librarian. I know how to pick 'em. So I am in the process of formatting the ebook for upload next weekend and then will tackle the paperback.
Next week, I plan to attend a luncheon to hear Iowa author, Thomas Nye, talk about his books on the Amish. One night I have a Zoom book club meeting with an RV village group.
And the following Saturday, a group of Eastern Iowa writers, the 'Book Bums,' will hold a Zoom workshop and gathering with a variety of topics. This group got started with our Book Bums workshop at our local library in 2014 and continued the early November workshops for five years. The last two years, of course, we have not met in person. Hopefully this year.
Finally, the last weekend of the month I will join a gathering of some of my favorite readers, the Midwest Glampers, at Pine Lake near Eldora, so we can plan our escapades for the upcoming camping season. More research for one of my next books!
