Welcome to Marketing for Romance Authors 52 week blog hop challenge. Each week, a lovely group of romance authors blog on a common theme. Visit them all here sharing the five things on their bucket list. Here is mine. They are, in truth, more goals than wild desires, but that's just how I roll.
A Book on a Bookstore Bookshelf
While I have published numerous ebooks, and have articles in journals and a non-fiction book, I do not have a fiction book, published by a publishing house, in hard copy and on a bookstore bookshelf.
To be a panelist on a TV news/talk show
I want to be on the stage, in a chair, talking to the host (as opposed to being randomly
interviewed on the street by a roving reporter looking for opinions on the neighborhood parking challenges). I love to think on my feet, and I think that would be the ultimate challenge.
Live in the water
I want to spend some time (a couple months) actually living on a houseboat, a boat, one of those houses on stilts, or floating homes. The water isn't something you see from a distance like a standard beach house but is something you step in when walk out the front door.
Live in Venice
I know you see the theme here, but this is a bit different than my third choice. I don't just love the canals, and the fact that taxis are boats, but I adore the narrow alleys, the variations of bridges, and buildings that ooze history on every brick. The pasta, gelato, espresso and wine don't hurt either.
I'm a bit of an anomaly in that I've never married. I don't really know why, although I'm surprised how many people who don't me are always willing to tell me why (don't get me started on that). I probably should have put it first, but I find this hard to discuss, so it ended up here. At least I've put it out there.
Thanks for dropping by.
