I didn’t even get out of bed to take this shot. I have the best view!



Have a great writing day!

So this is a first, not just for me but for the ENTIRE FREAKIN FERRY SYSTEM. I’m having a booksigning on the ferry Thursday, on the 4:40pm Seattle/Bainbridge run. 

Come to a booksigning aboard a Washington State Ferry!

I’m known for doing signings in unusual places. This one is to celebrate the publication of JUST BREATHE, and because there will be ads for the book on the ferry. Enter a drawing to win a gift basket filled with gourmet treats, a signed book and a certificate for an oxygen facial. There’s a nice article about the event in Shelf Awareness here.

All this scenery and a new book to read, too. You can’t beat that!

A propos of nothing writing-related, I have a fabulous condo for sale in the ultra-hip neighborhood of Queen Anne.

It’s an adorable one-bedroom in The Apollo, a converted midcentury modern building. This has a million-dollar view of the Sound, ferries, Mount Rainier and the Emerald City.

I sent this snap to a friend to convince him to bring his family for a visit this summer. Taken from my beach:

Not sure why I thought of this but I like the thought:
