Off on Vacation for a week



I'll be in New Mexico this week visiting relatives so I won't be able to blog. We're going to see the Santa Fe Opera and go hiking around some of the most beautiful canyons. While I'm there I'll be on the lookout for prizes for my 200 blog follower contest so stay tuned. (I'll also be looking for another book of Native American flute music- beautiful melodies that I play on my regular silver flute and it still sounds nice.)

After I come back, I'll be doing a concert with my very own flute teacher. This is very special to me because of the difference she made in my life. I studied with her in high school, and then went on to study with her in college at UNH. She was my role model growing up, and has influenced my life for the better more than she knows! I wanted to be just like her, and although I never quite made it in height, she now treats me as one of her colleagues and it's very special for her to ask me to play alongside her. :) I'll post that video if it comes out well next week.

I'm still waiting on Agent #6. She's had my partial for over 6 weeks, so I'll drop her an email if I haven't heard from her when I get back. For those of you who asked: Yes, I've already exhausted all of the science fiction agents out there. (There aren't that many of them) As my good friend Theresa suggested, (go ahead and click on her blog. She did a really awesome review of my ebook, Malicifer) I may try some fantasy agents that don't specifically have sci fi. But I'm already considering other options for my manuscript just in case.

I had an English teacher that made a big difference in my class and a French teacher who believed in me. It's so wonderful when students find that kind of person to be a mentor. I'm glad you did so that we can enjoy your beautiful music. Good luck with #6 and the idea of a fantasy agent! I hope you have a save and fun vacation!

I don't know if this is going to work, it's not letting me post a comment.....trying again.

I hope you have a great vacation! And, that's awesome about the flute teacher. I know so many of my teachers have shaped who I am, and I'm so thankful to each and every one of them, even the bad ones. LOL!

Good luck on the agent front too! You never know! Don't give up.

Enjoy New Mexico. We lived there several years ago. The state lives up to its name: The Land of Enchantment.
