One Week to Go!


I’m really getting excited about these river tours, now, and I’m going to throw myself on your mercy yet again to share this post everywhere you can. I want to be sure we fill the boat for Captain Jeanne and Doug. Thanks so much for any help you can give me. Next week at this time, we’ll be about halfway through our river tour, having no doubt spotted all sorts of wildlife and birds, and learned some of the river’s history from Captain Jeanne. Maybe Doug will have called up some barred owls to amuse us, or maybe we’ll have spotted something rare and unusual along the way. I will have done a short reading from Swamp Ghosts at the start of the tour, and probably spent a few minutes talking about the fictional town of Riverbend, Florida, or even explained a bit about the differences between albino and leucistic reptiles, which comes into play in my book.  (Contrary to what Ned Hickson would have you believe, I will NOT have wrestled any gators for you, albino or otherwise!) I will, however,  be open to some Question and Answer time, and we also have a surprise or two in store, as well, for some lucky passengers.

Leucistic Alligator (We won’t see any of these on the St. Johns, but we will probably talk about them.)!

Black bears have been spotted on the tours.

Bobcats, too.

You never know WHAT might be waiting for you! Even this is possible. Highly doubtful, to be sure, but…possible!

If you are in the area, please join us. If not, please let others know, so they might be able to come along for the ride. The river is bursting with life this time of year, and you just never know what you might see. To book a tour online, go here: St. John’s River Eco Tours. Even if you can’t go on the Meet the Author Tour next Saturday or Tuesday, you really should do this some time. It’s fabulous! And so relaxing!

So come join us on the Naiad. You’ll be glad you did!
