So here we are at day 3 and I am too lazy to sign into my computer to do this blog justice. Okay. Maybe not lazy, but tired and achy. Don’t worry. It’s just my normal state of things after getting back to work after 2 weeks off. It was good to get back in the office and make headway on old and new projects. For those of you who don’t know, I work full time at the Alberta Federation of REAs (AFREA) as Business Management Coordinator and I have held this position since September 2008. And for most who don’t know, “REAs” are Rural Electrification Associations – power co-ops distributing electricity services to members throughout rural Alberta. Founded in the late 1940s, early ’50s they’ve been around for almost 70 years. The AFREA was formed to represent these cooperatives thereby making us a co-op as well… advocating for REA sustainability in a super dynamic competitive industry.
As you may know, I started my own publishing company in 2010 to help promote local authors and to put books out that may never see a shelf otherwise. It’s all about the end returns in this industry, too – so if it’s not worth it (as in return on investment) then it doesn’t really have a chance mainstream. Yes, an author may have to invest going with me, but I guarantee your vision is my vision because I am an author and artist, too.
I guess this wasn’t such a lazy attempt after all – you got some interesting facts about me and my work. If you want to know more about my writing life, check out that tab above as I updated some January 2018 comments to an “author interview” I originally did in 2005.
I like to think there is continual growth in my writing and strive to be the best I can be: at my job, with my company, as a person and community member, as a creative being. Thank you smart phone for allowing me to keep my promise from the comfort of my warm covers. Good night all. Thanks for reading.
