What Am I Supposed to Do Here?
Owner of Marshfield Manor
(from Grace Under Pressure by Julie Hyzy)
I'm not quite certain I'm doing this correctly.
Am I? Hello?
I may be getting up there in years, but you shouldn't believe what they say about teaching old dogs new tricks. I intend to get the hang of this blogging venture before our author finds out I'm sneaking around here.
Do you know Gracie? She started working for me less than a year ago and already I wonder what the place did without her. The care and upkeep of Marshfield Manor takes time and effort. Most of all it takes dedication, and Gracie has that in spades. I think she loves this place almost as much as I do.
Wait, I'm digressing. Oh, but that's acceptable on a blog, isn't it?
Grace asked me to tell you that her next adventure has a title. The second book will be called GRACE INTERRUPTED. Yes, I know it won't be out until June of 2011, but we around here are all very excited about its release. Having the first story come out gave us the chance to get to know one another better. We characters just sit around in our author's head until we pop out on paper, you understand. When that happens, we come to life and even though I'm upwards of 70, I still feel the thrill every time I get a turn "onstage."
Have you met all of us? I know that Grace has been here, as has Frances. Bruce and Scott popped in last month and I think even Ronny Tooney has been by to have his say.
Have you read Grace Under Pressure? Do you have a favorite character? Let us know. Don't feel pressured to say that you like me best. I'm too old to get offended.
Bennett Marshfield, owner of Marshfield Manor
