It’s almost October and the end of the year. My favorite time of year. The weather is finally cooling down in Phoenix. We are in the double digits rather than triple digits. Not quite full on Autumn but getting there. I have been busy finishing my first installment for Brain Bites – The Bloody Queen. I have also been working on illustration and design. I will be finishing MacBeth for Shakespeare Year at the end of the week. Now that I have learned typesetting in Scribus I am able to make the e-books look more pleasing.
I have contacted a manufacturing company that will put my designs/images on wallpaper, wrapping paper and fabric. Super excited about that.
I went to Brass Armadillo yesterday and basically cleared them out of Halloween papers and craft packs. I think I will be doing homemade cards for people or maybe if I can scan the pages, I can create unique cards. Or maybe I can create spell books. Obviously, I don’t have firm plans yet. But Halloween is creeping up so I better figure things out.
I have been reading a biography of King John since my next Brain Bite is on him. I have also been re-reading Jane Eyre. Wish I could say I was reading more but my time is limited and I have much to do on the business end of the spectrum.
I went to the Farmer’s Market on Saturday. It was fun and there is something exciting about searching for fresh fruits and vegetables. I bought a bag of beans for $5.00. I made Portuguese kale, sausage and bean soup. It was delicious and nourishing.
It’s Tuesday. Plans for the rest of the week: Publish The Bloody Queen and MacBeth, A Brief Exploration. Also, complete one design and three images for Very Long Ago. Busy week.
