NonHugger? or Hugger?

TJ, who will be six years old in July, is very particular about Sadie touching his feet or his tail. He grouses with a growl, but Sadie doesn’t move because she’s comfortable and probably doesn’t hear him anyway. She’s going on fourteen and pretty much deaf. He moves.

TJ loves his Sadie pillow. It’s not unusual for him to flop next to her or even put his head on her back to relax. Sadie doesn’t care. She’s a hugger herself so she understands.

If you’re not a hugger, you probably understand TJ. If you’re a hugger, you certainly understand Sadie.

TJ and Sadie are Rescue Dogs. The best kind, of course. Sadie is a German Wire Haired Pointer mix. She was my model for Lucy in I ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A SPY.

TJ is a Black and Tan Labrador with a smattering of German Shepherd. He was my model for Colonel in the DONUT LADY MYSTERY SERIES.

 

Book Table ~ I HEART Books

The 2019 I HEART Books Sale was at the Gainesville Downtown Public Library.  I met new authors and awesome readers, including the members of a local book club that is considering recommending the books of the DONUT LADY MYSTERY SERIES for their club to read this summer.

Book Club: We had an author who came to speak to us once. Would you be willing to do that?

Me: That would be awesome! I would love to! <Wow! WooHoo!>

SWEET! ~ A FREE BOOK

FREE on Amazon SWEET DEAL SEALED click or tap

SWEET DEAL SEALED is FREE through May 11 on Amazon.

Why another free book? There’s no royalty paid for a free book. However, Amazon does pay the writer for every page read, even if the book is free. It works out to about $0.0004 or so a page. Not a lot of money, right? But sometimes a reader leaves a review on Amazon or Goodreads. PRICELESS!

Would you like to know IN ADVANCE about the next free book or even when the next new book is released? The subscribers to the Judith A. Barrett monthly eNewsletter are always the first to hear the news before anyone else!

Book Table at the Ham Radio Fest

HamFest2019

This was my second year to have a table at a local area Ham Radio “Hamfest.” As a ham radio operator, it’s a great excuse to see the electronics, antennas, and other radio equipment for sale. As an author, it’s a great opportunity to be out in my community, talking about and selling my books.

My favorite:

Ham Operator picks up DANGER IN THE CLOUDS: This book looks interesting. Does it have a ham radio operator in it?

We chat about the services ham radio operators provided during recent hurricanes.

Ham Operator reads back cover: Whoa! This is you! You’re the author! I’ve never met an actual author! If I buy the book, will you sign it?

Me: Certainly. <Squealing inside!>

Sales were good, and the conversations were fun. Looking forward to another year!

 

A Poem for April, National Poetry Month

bacon

A Poem of Passion and Encouragement

When life gets you down, think of bacon.

When you’re sad, think of bacon.

When you’re at your worst, think of bacon.

When you need a hug, think of bacon.

When you need love, think of bacon.

Yes, bacon makes it better.

We all need bacon.
