Busy Schedule

Posted by Nancy J. Cohen on April 7, 2011

Whew, I barely have time to breathe, let alone write blogs right now. I’ve finished my Shear Murder copy edit corrections and am back to revising my WIP, almost halfway through. But I have to put that aside to prepare for four speaking engagements within the next few days.

Preparation means getting handouts made, organizing my notes, gathering promo materials, getting hair and nails done, packing since I’m going out of town, and juggling the plumber and window man who are coming today. One of these days, I really have to learn how to put my notes into a Power Point presentation but I don’t have time right now.

Saturday, we’ll drive to Naples where I have two days of talks. That day, I’m guest speaker at the celebrity luncheon for the writer’s conference. Sunday morning, I give a fiction writing workshop. Monday, I’m speaking at our local Hadassah group, then Tuesday it’s off to Delray and a talk at Murder on the Beach Mystery Bookstore. Wednesday is critique group at my house. Then we drive to Orlando for a quick break before rushing home in time for Passover.

During May, I’ll work on completing my revisions. Man, I sure would like to relax over the summer! My next talk won’t be until August 6 in Jacksonville for the Sisters in Crime chapter, so I’ll have a few months where the pace can slow. Although, once I get the cover for Shear Murder, my promotional campaign will have to kick into gear. Sigh.

Maybe I’ll lay out by the pool with my Kindle later and escape into someone else’s good story.

Here are my upcoming events if you’re in the area. I’ll be signing my mysteries and my latest romance.

  1. Best of luck with your new story and I hope all the workshops and talks go well. I am sure they will Nancy, you are the most poised, classy, professional author, that I have ever known.
    Will be thinking of you, and when you get it all done. Have a Happy, Healthy, Passover!!

  2. Gosh, Mary, you make me blush. I will miss seeing everyone at the FRW meeting. Thanks so much for your good wishes.
