October has been a whirlwind month for me. My office moved into a bigger space so we now have more exam rooms for patients. Been loving that. But this month is also my trip to Ireland. Next week I get on a plane headed to another country for the first time in my life. Probably my last, given the cost of tickets and hotel, not to mention the stress it causes me, but the future is unpredictable when you’re a mere human. I have to say I’m looking forward to this trip despite my anxiety. I don’t like being away from home, trusting my animals to other people, and I hate, hate, hate flying. I do believe Dramamine will be in my system for the entirety of the flight. Still, I can’t wait to see places like the Guinness factory, Newgrange, tour a few castles, and just take in all the differences and similarities Dublin, Ireland has with Colorado. I’ll be taking plenty of pictures and lots of notes because I have no doubt story ideas will pummel me every day I’m there.
On another note, Hearts of Magic, Chevalier Book Three has a tentative release date in November. So excited. The final installment, book four, is nearing completion as well. I’ll no doubt be writing on that while I’m in Ireland, too, because I couldn’t stop creating if I tried. Where I am in the world will make no difference to the characters in my head. I look forward to sending out book three’s release day newsletter with tales of my travels included.
