How I'm spending my #^$@*&^ weekend: My revisions are finished, but I need to make sure all the dates work out. With 80 chapters, this is a task. Some of the book is date sensitive (D-day, for example) and the rest of the dates in the story (there are dated letters) need to synchronize with what's happening historically. I am about to go out of my mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh wow, y'all! Want to win a ceiling fan? Remember when my stepdaughter Pretty Handy Girl updated my screened porch? The one thing it was missing was a new ceiling fan and she recently installed the most stunning ceiling fan I've ever seen (and wow, does it work beautifully!) She posts about it today on her blog and the company, Haiku, is offering to give away a ceiling fan to one of her blog readers! So head on over there and take a gander. http://www.prettyhandygirl.com/installing-the-most-beautiful-ceiling-fan-i-ever-laid-eyes-upon/
