Busy, Busy, Like a Bee

I’m sorry I’ve been absent for so long but I do have an excuse! I’ve been busy writing. Busy like a little bee. I’ve gotten another novel first draft completed, starting the work to turn my first novel into a trilogy, and writing short stories for contests!

You won’t be left out if you are on my email list for my Newsletter… and that is another thing I’ve been busy with. Writing my first newsletter and getting it out!

Since I am submitting these stories to contests I cannot publish them for a bit. But as soon as I can legally publish them, I’ll post them in the newsletter and on my Facebook group page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/kathleen.osborne.author/2942596879195693/ Those that are involved with either one will get them for free. Anyone else will have to wait until I publish an Anthology of my short stories.

However, if you want to vote for me to win the Reader’s Choice Award for one of my stories you can go to: https://www.shortfictionbreak.com/contests You can read the story, all the entries are listed by the author’s last name. You can even comment on the story if you want to. The opportunity to vote ends on June 21, 2020. The name of this story is ‘Alone in the Box’.

I do want you to know I’m not all work and no play. One of my fav things to do is bake. It has been a challenge for me since we moved to the mountains because of the high altitude. Well, in the last few weeks I have mastered Puff Pastry, Chocolate Sugar Pastries (top photo), Snickerdoodle Scones and Chocolate Chip Scones (bottom photo), not too mention Pizza Dough! Here are some pictures of the Scones and Chocolate Sugar Pastries…

I’ll be thinking of you all while I munch on these goodies… and if you want the recipes for them check out https://www.dougheyed.com for even more recipes.
