What I Did On My Summer Vacation

I recently got back from a family vacation to the Washington D.C. area. It was the first vacation I’ve taken in years that didn’t involve any writing. Not even on the plane. I barely had time to post to Facebook that I was actually standing in front of the Gutenberg Bible.

I did stop by the Books-A-Million Store in D.C. to get a look at my books in a real bookstore. It was pretty cool, and kind of surreal to find the books I had written sitting on a bookstore shelf. The employees were really nice and they were thrilled to talk to me about my books and have me sign the copies they had on the shelf.

The rest of the trip was spent walking and doing all the touristy things.

Pretty amazing.

We also went to Mt. Vernon

Gettysburg and the Arlington National Cemetery but I didn’t take pictures.

We spent a lot of time walking, riding the subway, and waiting in line with thousands of school kids, or as my soon-to-be-Senior son looks down upon, upcoming Freshmen.

We did catch a ballgame at Camden Yards. And since the head groundskeeper is a woman and the heroine of my next baseball book is also a grounds keeper, I guess I did work after all.

A good thing, since I got my next round of edits on my fourth book when I landed at LAX.

Vacation is over. I’ve got editing to do, emails to catch up on, and a few blog posts to write for my upcoming blog tour for my third book, Making A Comeback, which comes out on July 7. That’s in two weeks. Better get busy.

  1. Sounds like a blast. That’s a trip I’ve always wanted to take but have yet to get there. Bucket list, bucket list.

    Good luck with the edits.
