Insight is out in paperback and there really was a blue moon

by dianagreenwood

See? Unusual things happen. A real Blue Moon. A rover on Mars. A book in paperback. Expect the unexpected.

It has been a wild summer here what with two trips to L.A., one to Seattle, and a vacation/signing/work/wedding trip to Canada.

Insight is now out in paperback and that cool fact was celebrated at St. Vital Centre Chapters in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where the nicest people live. I know, it’s my home town. It was great to be back. The house I grew up in looks very much the same as it did when I attended Bannatyne Elementary School, the lilac bush my mother planted at the corner of the yard is huge, and the garage my father built is still standing. My cousins are silly as always, and we added a lovely bride to the family. Life is good.

I am getting ready to revamp this blog and update my website (yes, I do know it is incredibly boring).  Watch for a new series of interviews on young authors, coming soon. Also watch for photos of cats, because those seem to draw crowds on Facebook, and hey, I actually like crowds.

For now, here is the new cover.

Dream, teach, love, do. Once in a blue moon, every little thing aligns.

Five or six of you…

by dianagreenwood

…know that I post very rarely. Why? As a single mom juggling two jobs with  a daughter in college (for which the interest rates on the (single) parent loans are incredibly ridiculous), and as a daughter of a parent with Alzheimer’s,  as well as the caretaker for a fat cat that only rises from her cushion with the clink, clink of dry food as it is poured into her ceramic bowl, I just cannot make it over here often.

But the most irritating reason is that WordPress freezes my computer each and every time I try to post and my patience wears thin. Rather quickly. Yes this is a five-year-old laptop. So what.  WordPress should still work on it , right?

However, I will be signing INSIGHT at the fabulous bookstore, Chapters, in St. Vital Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, my home town, on Friday, July 20th from 2-4 p.m.  If you are in the neighborhood, stop by to say hi.

If WordPress decides to chill anytime soon and allow uploads that don’t take five thousand  hours, I will post the pic of the fantastic INSIGHT softcover designed by Jeff Gifford. The softcover will be available in stores on August 7th.

 

See me here:

Chapters St. Vital
St. Vital Centre, 85-1225 St. Mary’s Rd
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
(204)256-0777
And stay tuned for a major fall event with several other authors, here in NorCal, where the sun shines when it feels like it, the kids are all amazing, writers swarm the streets, and books will never go away, no matter what you may be led to believe.
Best, from the Blue Moon blogger,
