The Stuff About Aging

My newest post for the Indie Chicks Cafe is up. I try to be lighthearted about this aging process. Maybe you can help?

Feeling Angsty?

Today I'm at Patricia Stoltey's wonderful blog discussing author angst. AND, I'm giving away a copy of RED TIDE to one lucky commenter. It could be you!

Take One: Tattered Cover "Theater of Ideas": A Virtual Tour

This is the main location for the Tattered Cover Bookstore in Denver. It's an amazing place to hang out, there's a nice full-service restaurant attached, and as you can see it's a vital part of our community. TC has two other locations, one downtown and one the the 'burbs.

View from about 1/4 mile from my cousin's home in Colorado Springs

This morning I made a donation to Pikes Peak United Way with the funds specified to go toward the victims of the Waldo Canyon Fire. El Pomar has partnered with Colorado Springs television station KOAA 5 to establish the assistance fund. El Pomar has a prominent reputation in Colorado and I'm confident the dedicated funds will go to the people who need them.

The donation was based on royalties I received for RED TIDE, based in Colorado, for the last few days of June. Rather than the 5% I had committed to, I donated 100% of those royalties. It felt good. It felt right.

Thank you.
