Madison! We Are Here!

Here we are in sunny Madison, Indiana, selling and signing books at That Book Place. If you aren’t here, you’re an equilateral four-sided thing!

That Book Place is having its 5th Anniversary Party with multiple authors and a sale of used books. They put in an order of sunshine, but there was a two-for-one sale on breezes, so it’s almost gale force out here. We’re lashing ourselves to the tables to keep from blowing away. Oh, dear, there went a child.

Meeting a lot of great folks. This is the place to be. 🙂 We may come back for the Madison Chautauqua in September. See you then?

    Hi there,

    “I’m Jane Wise, author of “Give a Horse a Second Chance- Adopting and Caring for Rescue Horses”. Made enough on the thing to pay off my advance money–not much. Also published some short stories for free-just for the exposure. Currently working on a novel. Since I am not a fast writer like Stephen King it will probably be a couple of years before I attempt to publish the thing. I would like the opportunity to get to know some crazy people like me that like to spend hours at a time scribbling in the dark for little or no compensation to speak of.

    I didn’t start writing till the age of 50. I probably wouldn’t have started then, but an 800 lb. horse fell on top of me and I was knocked unconscious and laid up for a while, so I didn’t have anything better to do. It was probably brain damage that has kept me going these past few years, so don’t get the idea that I am some kind of expert just because I published a book.

      Pleased to meet you, Jane! Man, 800 pounds of ouch! Was the horse okay?

      Your book sounds wonderful!

      Yes, for most of us, writing is a fairly slow process, unless we’re struck by one of those wonderful bursts of energy and inspiration.

      Thanks for dropping by and commenting. 🙂
