A "Disney"rific Time!

[caption id="attachment_1347" align="aligncenter" width="490" caption="Sunset On Cinderella's Castle"][/caption]

Last week, my family and I took our annual vacation to Walt Disney World. For the last five years or so, we've gone there for vacation for a number of reasons.

For one, it's fun. There's never an end to what you can do at Walt Disney World. You've got theme parks, water parks, shopping, camgrounds, boat rides, and I could keep going, but I won't.

Another reason we go there regularly is how accommodating they are with people with allergies. This is extremely important for us because our daughter has a lot, and I mean A LOT, of food allergies. The chef's at Disney always know their food, and they were willing to make food specifically for our daughter that was cooked separately from other foods to prevent cross-contamination of the allergens.

We had a blast, and the pictures below show it all! But now, the vacation is over, and it's back to work, home duties, writing, and self-publishing ebooks.

How to Make a Face Mask

The United States' president and some governors are now recommending people wear a face mask to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. They're also asking that the N95 masks be reserved for healthcare workers as they help those who are suffering from the virus.

In light of this, you might be wondering if you can make one yourself?

In the video below, my wife demonstrates how to make a reusable face mask for you and your family. Though this won't guarantee prevention of the spread of the virus, it is in line with what we're being asked. Every little bit can help!

Quaratined or Stuck at Home? Here are some free books.

The global crisis regarding the COVID-19 virus (or coronavirus) is affecting anyone and everyone. Whether you get the virus or not, in some way, our lives are being impacted. Schools are closed. Parties discouraged. Social distancing encouraged. Entire countries in lockdown. Toilet paper being bought up like it's gold. The list goes on and on.

Pretty stressful stuff for sure. Something out of a movie or book. Something none of us have ever experienced to the point that it might be surreal.

You probably find yourself stuck at home right now, looking for something to do. Netflix, Disney+, video games, books. Those are probably keeping everybody company.

I'd like to give you something to occupy your time while you wait this thing out. So, starting today until the end of the month (or possibly longer depending how all of this goes), you can read any of my books at no cost. This option is available through the Smashwords website using the coupon code listed below. (This coupon cod…
