it ever go as planned?”

Highly recommended. Story is strong. Laura Linney is very good.
Ian McKellen and Milo Parker are brilliant.

a weird month, with several things crashing around at once. A
lot of that isn’t going to let up for a bit (even into early May)…
so working hard to have an essay or two (or, dare I dream, three)
to share so that there is some material making it to the site.
most of the web site work came to a halt when—yes, really—six
different writing projects needed attention. What kind of attention?
Well… what I can share is that they actually morphed into seven
of those projects I’m not ready to elaborate on, but actually
hope to turn into efforts that will be completed and released
in 2018. Another is a back-burner type of thing that might… big
stress on might… develop into something this year.
since I can’t give more on anything here today (or, even in the
near future)… let’s just say that we’re moving in some interesting

Bunny Trail is this month’s challenge. The idea is to find things
that need to be done outside, including gardens and other landscaping,
and use the resources around your neighborhood to help out.

March, we had several special offers in place. They were mainly
around as part of the new book release (A Parkside View: Volumes

and to celebrate the Fifteenth Anniversary of the In My Backpack
of those offers included lower prices on the paperback editions
of my first nine efforts. From Time Just Drifts Away
to Conversations, all of the books released in 2017 and
earlier were reduced.

of 2018 marked fifteen years for the In My Backpack web
site. Those of you that have been visiting for a while know that
there are a few recurring things around here. The use of nicknames
like Backpackville and The ‘ville might be one you’ve seen. My
repeated celebrations and recognition of somewhat off anniversaries
would definitely be another. But then, on an almost normal length

a few thoughts on Special
Offers for my previously released titles.
One was a free download of the Kindle edition of my first book,
Just Drifts Away. That offer lasted for
five straight days early in March and is no longer available.
But… there is an offer that will be around for at least a couple
paperback editions of my first nine titles (Time Just Drifts
Away to Conversations… basically every release from
my first to those published in 2017) are available at a special
price. And, with a few requests for it, we’re going to keep that
going into next weekend. (So… ENJOY… and head over to my
Amazon author page to check it out.)

willing to sell out and offer some space for high advertising

What I do have is some incredible people that have worked on projects
with me, amazing folks that have reached out to offer comments
and feedback and support, and I am grateful.

Friends for Local Business...
month, the challenge is The Bunny Trail. It’s the time of year
to start considering outside work, like gardens. So, for the Local
Friends efforts, we’re asking you to think about some of the things
you might be looking toward: vegetable gardens, flower boxes and
to add some raised beds for your veggies this year? How about
a few planters for some herbs? Have you been thinking about landscaping
projects? Fruit trees? Perhaps some lilacs?
Friends is running the entire month of April, hopping down The
it for today. Got some sorting to do… should be ready, with a
new essay or two, by the middle of the week.
