What my summer will look like

The girls yesterday enjoying watching their favorite show on YouTube!

Last Tuesday was the last day of school. The girls hang around with me all day yesterday and for the next three months, we will be together full-time! Marie can sleep in all morning and we can run errands altogether. One thing is for sure, just like my schedule, I’ll keep theirs busy. The library has tons of activities for kids all summer like reading, crafts, lego, movies, etc. while I’ll be working there on and off, or whenever they need me. I’ll let the girls spend more time outside. They love to visit our next door neighbor. They also love to play with our other neighbor’s dog. The most exciting thing in their mind right now is to spend time in the public pool.

On the other hand, I’ll be busy too working on selling and promoting my book, Pesos to Pennies. I want it to be available at stores. That’s a milestone for any author to see your self-published book at bookstores or any store. I started calling places in Fremont on how to get my book into their store. I have an appointment at one store on Monday morning about it and the possible book signing which I’m really excited about! I have to meet a librarian in Fremont on Friday morning to sell my book.

On Saturday afternoon, I’ll attend my first book expo at The Bookworm in Omaha. I’ve never been to that place but I googled the direction and it looks like it’s easy to find and I can drive just by myself.┬áThis summer, I’ll be driving many miles to go places. I just got a confirmation from the organizer of Nebraska Book Festival that I can join their event in July!

My summer is also filled with doctor/dentist appointments, finding host families for exchange students, cleaning our house and hopefully, more book signings!
