Man was the Spring Fling fun! April was inspiring, educational, and a little rainy.
Hope you were able to get outside during the month of April and enjoy some fresh air. Things here have been a little wet, as we have been getting a LOT of rain over the past few weeks. Chicago at the end of April wasn't any different, which was okay since we spent the majority of our time at the conference inside the hotel.
The Chicago North Romance Writers put on a very nice conference, and there were some amazing speakers that shared their knowledge on some terrific topics. What I liked most was seeing everyone "in person" again, since you just can't absorb that positive energy from a room full of writers through a Zoom screen. It just doesn't compare.
We have carpet coming and have had a bit of a change of plans as relates to the furniture I will be getting for my office. I am not entirely sure it is a good plan for my creative space, but it will make for a more comfortable stay for overnight guests should we have them. I am in the process of purging what doesn't serve, and for anyone that would like to check out my blog post on the topic, you can link to it here: https://dahenneman.com/2022/01...
Athena's story is on hold since I was able to "pitch" an Agent at the conference and she has requested a submission for my Supernatural Mystery series. I have put that on the front burner and am getting it ready for queries now. I hope to have it out to a few agencies by the summer. Fingers crossed I find a good fit for this series! I will keep you posted!
As an update on the birdhouse, the sparrows beat out the bluebirds (and the wrens) and we are still waiting for a sign of babies for spring. We have loads of clean-up to do outside and have been avoiding certain areas where bunnies are known to cuddle since we don't want to disturb any young families. If we happen to see any, I will be sure to get some pictures. In the meantime, I am sharing a few from my conference and am having a drawing to celebrate the warmer weather, so check out the details below! As always, feel free to email me anytime, I love hearing from my readers!
Last but not least, I am in a Book Bundle promotion with Library 1 of my Power Of Four series, which is available the month of May for only .99! If you haven't downloaded the series yet, now is the time! You can find it at the link below along with over 300 books that are available at great prices!
Happy reading and healthy vibes everyone!
