It’s been quite a month and I have a ton of posts in my head, but still no time to put them down on paper! With the publishing of Coffee-Drunk Or Blind on December 6, most of my WordPress essay’s got put on hold. Promoting and marketing takes up a lot of time, even if it is on Facebook!
CDB has been doing great in the ratings on Amazon and I am overwhelmed with the traffic the book has gotten, especially from those of you who are not family. When I started out writing this adventure of our family’s memories about homesteading in the Alaska Wilderness in the mid-twentieth century, I was only hopeful that outsiders would appreciate the story. I am still amazed at how much non-family traffic this book has received.

Without the journal, notes, and letters my mother wrote and saved for more than fifty years, this story would have been told on memory only. And you all know how our memories decompose when we get older! My brother, Chip, summed it up nicely when he wrote his memories for this book.
“Memories are funny things, the further back in time they go, the fuzzier they seem to get. They have the tendency to get jumbled together so that they blend into something that isn’t exactly the way things actually were.”
He was two years old when we left for our great adventure and almost seven when we returned, but what a great memory he had of that time in our lives!
In January I’ll be catching up on those posts in my heat. In the meantime you can always stay entertained by reading Coffee-Drunk Or Blind! Don’t forget to leave your review on Amazon. They are much appreciated!
Thanks for all your support!
