And so it begins...

With little or no intelligent design, I hereby hurl myself into the blogosphere. It begins on this the 26th day of June, 2011, (my half birthday) with:
1.) A middle grade novel (I hope will be my 15th published) on exclusive submissive submission to a new publisher. (stay tuned)
2.) A bunny rabbit unable and unwilling to eat anything but watermelon since being attacked (my fault) by a stray dog.
3.) Two fragrant kids (and their insignificant others) home from separate colleges to fill the sink with dishes and cover the floors with laundry for the summer.
4.) An imminent trip to the homeland (Detroit, Michigan) to visit the elderlies and assorted family bits, in-law and out, with my extra thirty pounds, and my kids, (one of whom is
scared of airplanes) while husband remains home on bunny duty.
5.) A garden full of bitter lettuce, thick-skinned tomatoes, dry green beans, and squirrels
nabbing my plums and apricots before they are ripe, having already shredded and
strewn about my peaches.
6.) A recently dead father-in-law, cousin-in-law and dog.

I suspect the above subjects comprise the bulk of future blog posts, with the addition of the occasional gig story, or rant. Such is my life....

About goddam time, woman! Good luck with that submissive submission, bunny rehab and all the rest. Sounds like it's going to be a long, hot and super-fruity summer. XOXO

So far you have five followers. Four of us have names that begin with an A.

You may not be a dog whisperer...but you are definitely an A whisperer...

Hi Amy, have fun with your new bloggy-poo. I have a bad little bunny in my country garden that keeps sneaking in under the fence. He's taking chunks out of my pepper and broccoli plants.

Very intriguing first post, Amy! Well done! You have set the stage and piqued our interest, and made us laugh too. All signs of an excellent blogger, methinks. Looking forward to reading your stuff here. And good luck with the new book!
