Sometimes we forget and others we don't let ourselves rememberFolks, I scheduled two blogs and managed to forget them. I missed the blog I scheduled somewhere else on Mama's birthday and one here on Daddy's birthday. How could I have forgotten?
Well, for one thing I have been working hard to get an anthology edited. Yes, that's the reason. Or is it?
Maybe the reason is that I have been editing for clients and reformatting a book to send to my editor. Sure, that's the reason. Editing takes concentration and changing every indent on my 100,000 word manuscript takes time and no brainer work. Or is that the real reason?
Something tells me I'm not ready to write about my parents without washing the keyboard with tears. Daddy's passing I could handle, because it was a blessing. Mama's was unexpected. Maybe 13 years isn't enough for me to gain perspective without tears. But I know they would be proud of my work as a writer and an editor.
Good news! The Gilded Dragonfly Books launch publication is almost here! We will be signing copies of Carousel Déjà Vu Saturday at Peerless Books in Alpharetta, GA at 7 pm.
Jackson Nighttraveller invites special folks to experience the magic of a ride on his carousel in the north Georgia amusement park, Dancing Dragonfly. Nine stories tell what can happen if a rider catches the magic brass ring.
See my invite at www.MaryMarvella.com.

I suspect my parents, Mary Elizabeth McKeown Overby and James Claude Overby, will be there watching over me!
