I am not used to being quite this busy I usually have time write but I am determined to keep all my events, planning, tax prep, music events and research moving along in an organized fashion. The publicist at Heritage House Publishing has been active on my behalf so I had a  an interview with Kelly Sinoski of the Clinton Lariat on March 21st before the Always On Call: Adventures in Nursing, Ranching and Rural Living was on the shelves. Another to do with CBC soon. Apparently, there are a lot of pre-orders, so that’s a first for me. I love the cover. It’s a great stand-alone but  does reference the first book  Always Pack a Candle  with its ability to tell a story and its colours.
