Not being out in the sun getting baked, or dodging traffic, was going to be a hard act to follow. Seriously, what else did I know? An article in the Dallas Morning News caught my eye. It was about being a professional speaker. Hmm. That sounds interesting. Becoming mobile again, I took a seat in front of the blank monitor, pondering what to write.

It is fangtastic Cedric. Reviewing one book, working on sequels to Occupation and Gateway: Pioche. Reviewing material from a buddy of mine who I'm helping chronicle his tales of being a tour bus driver and sorting through two poetry books going out this month. Other than that, nothing exciting. Enjoy your 4th and thanks for adding to the TBR. Very nice.


Cedric Nye Jeff,
