Book Box Day!

Mom and I go work at The Book Box, the Friends of Harrison County Library book sale building today. Well, I tell a lie: SHE works and I slope off to the library and write. I do relieve her for a few minutes in the middle of her shift, so that counts, doesn’t it?

I usually spend a certain amount of time cruising the shelves — and, let’s face it, buying books. Yes, buying. It wouldn’t be volunteer work, if I took them for free, would it?

I’m usually just looking to see if anything jumps out at me, but Mr. Hyatt has got me jonesing for some David Eddings, so I’ll be looking for his stuff.

Meanwhile, deadlines are looming on a couple of stories, so I need to  finish those up.

See you tomorrow!

WRITING PROMPT: Write a character who haunts — alive or dead — a book sale room or a library.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
