Working Vacation

I am in Minnesota visiting my husbands family. The wide open space is freaking me out and today a bird sh*t on my face. But it is quite beautiful here and his family is wonderful. So wonderful in fact, that I have enlisted their help.

I have tons of manuscript reading to do. Today I spent the early afternoon at a family reunion in the park and the later part of the afternoon reading a middle grade submission. I had some help from a lovely middle grade reader: Brandi.

Her brother, a recent college graduate also stepped up to the plate.

I felt lucky. But then 10 minutes later....


Gives a whole new meaning to bedtime reading.
