HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Thanksgiving BlessingsThose of us at Village Drummer Fiction wish all of our friends, family, and followers a very happy Thanksgiving. This is our favorite holiday. It encompasses family, food, fun, and football; all things we are grateful for (well, some may question football). What could be better?  

The following is a previous post. Those traveling in snowy areas will appreciate it. Everyone, please travel safely.

What We Did When the Power Went Out

If you were housebound with no power, how would you spend your time?  We live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest; specifically the Seattle area.  As many of you probably have heard, it snowed this past week.  In typical PNW fashion, after it snowed, it rained, and then it froze, and then it snowed some more, and then it rained, and then it froze, and so on…

My wife and I have been spending so much time everyday working on my novels.  While I’m writing the next book, she is editing, arranging for publishing of my third book and marketing all of them.  Reading has always been a joy for each of us.  Our house is like a library, with shelves of books in almost every room.  Neither of us has read all of them (yet), but every book has been read or is on a shelf for “to be read” books.  We decided to take advantage of the downtime and pass the time doing our favorite activity (well, maybe second favorite).  We strapped on forehead flashlights and read.  We each read two books in the two days.  It felt so good to be able to hold a book someone else wrote and savor the journey it took me on.

The power came back on Saturday afternoon and we went right back to work.  I hope we manage to allow ourselves some reading time without having to wait for another blackout!

Happy reading,

Richard Alan
