Who would have thought we’d have to fly to England to film a promo video for our upcoming books? I certainly would never have guessed. But a friend of The Nomad’s who works with her here offered to help us film promotional videos for the two books coming soon from Crosshair Press–Kenan and Namesake. So we set up in the back yard, and The Nomad and I asked each other questions about our books. It was awesome! Even though it was a little cold. And the seagulls weren’t interested in being quiet for us.
Be looking for the promo videos soon!
Afterward, we made chicken fajitas. Seriously good.
It’s so good to have The Ginger here. She got in fine without any trouble, except for a bit of electrical difficulty in Atlanta. She always brings so much life to every conversation, regardless of how jetlagged she is.
The Nomad, The Padre, and I picked her up at the Carlisle train station and came back to the house for sandwiches. Then, we went out to the OMNIvision headquarters where we met the folks who The Nomad works with. Great people! And we got to watch some rough cuts of upcoming videos that they are working on.
I also discovered the British version of Mounds candy bars. They call them Bounty. But they’re just like Mounds. So I’m planning to see if I can find us a pack of Bounty chocolates for the trip to Scotland.
The Nomad, The Padre, The Ginger, me, and the Camera Dude all ate our fajitas tonight, and we laughed and told stories. It was so much fun. We didn’t break until 10:00 p.m. local time. I’m getting ready to try to sleep again We’ll see how tonight goes.
Historically second night is rough for me.
Tomorrow we’ll probably be doing some sightseeing around Carlisle. Probably the Castle and the Cathedral and definitely some of the book stores. I’m planning to take lots and lots of photographs!
