Camp Activities Specialist Bulletin #9

Star Date: September 28, 2019 Happy Fall Campers! The late Summer sunshine has gently given way to cooler temps and a riot of yellow flowers here in Flagstaff. We’re trading in short sleeves for those warm sweaters now that there’s a chill in the air. I think there’s nothing quite like reading a good Campfire Tale alongside a steaming mug of hot apple cider or a spiced rum toddy. As usual, our author has been …

Camp Activities Specialist Bulletin #8

Star Date: August 31, 2019 Hello Readers, On a bit of a serious note, on July 21st a wildfire broke out in Flagstaff that threatened several neighborhoods. Our home was not in immediate danger, but we have friends whose homes were right on the line. The “Ready, Set, Go” details were shared widely on social media and stories of neighbors offering transportation, food and shelter for animals and people were uplifting even as the fire …

The Mystery at Molas Pass

It’s release day! A very special one at that. Our first release of a Campfire Tale is “The Mystery at Molas Pass.” Aleia did a lovely roundup of were we are with Campfire Tales this morning, but I wanted to just highlight the release. As with all Campfire Tales, the story is free to newsletter subscribers (and exclusive to them for a while). If you are one, look in your inbox, the email went out …

Camp Activities Specialist Bulletin #6

Star Date: June 29, 2019 Hello Readers, It’s finally Summer here in Flagstaff and we are a bunch of happy campers now! It rained and snowed several times during the month of May, so we have an abundance of wildflowers blooming and my garden is full of little stone people, colorful perennial pansies (who knew such a thing existed), dianthus, snap dragons, daisies, and herbs. Early morning will usually find our author typing away at …

Camp Activities Specialist Bulletin #5

Star Date: May 25, 2019 Greetings Readers! Since our last update, camp life has become unbelievably busy. We had been thinking that Olivia needed a four-pawed canine friend to help her feel more comfortable. She truly is a pack animal and she had been a bit of a sad sack over not being with her littermate, Sky, and other friends next door. So, I asked the universe for a male spaniel. The universe delivered not …

Camp Activities Specialist Bulletin #4

Star Date: April 27, 2019 Greetings Readers! The Spring winds are blowing away the remnants of Winter here in Flagstaff. In early April, Robert and I made a short getaway for a “working vacation” to Colorado. We were able to dip into hot springs and recover from a very long winter of snow, injured knees, and puppy care. Our sweet Olivia is maturing and developing the cutest little habits. She buries her biscuits in the …

Star Date: March 30, 2019 Greetings Readers! Wow this month has flown by! It started with Robert being at a writer’s conference in Las Vegas. He’s going talk more about that, but I must say how proud I am of his accomplishments there. His stories were well received, and he gained so much insight as to what editors look for before they buy a story for professional publication. He returned from the Vegas experience with …

Star Date: February 23, 2019 Greetings Readers! We have been very busy campers this month, mostly shoveling snow and keeping up with our new puppy, Olivia. First though, as the Camp Activities Specialist, I have nudged our author to make a slight change on Facebook. Currently, Robert has a Facebook Group, named “The Totally Official (and very fun) Robert J. McCarter Author Group.” After much discussion about the trials and tribulations of social media; a …

It’s on the way to market now, and I’ll keep you updated as to when and where you will be able to read it. The title is “The Pearce Shoot Out“.
