Now What?

Okay, so I've written THE book I was supposed to write. And I got it published and all that good stuff. I was planning on writing a book about New Orleans cemeteries before I got pregnant. Well, that would have included lots of traveling to said city, and that didn't happen. Plus, there are actually a lot of books on NOLA cemeteries. Mine was going to focus on post-Katrina things, though. Anyway, at this time that book is a no-go.

Now that the baby is five months old, I feel like I can allow some focus on other things as well as Bella. And now I'm itching to start another project. While still doing the magazine. You'd think that would be enough, but I've got a bunch of books in me. But now what?

I've had some ideas:

- Pet Cemeteries - a new trend on the rise, plus reflecting on the old ones
- Cemetery postcards - I love them!
- What's a Cemetery? - a children's book
- Focus on a single cemetery - not sure which one yet, possibly local

If anyone has any thoughts on this, I'd love to hear them.

I'm also looking into expanding my online store to offer genealogy and scrapbooking items (for cemetery and genealogy related scrapbooking). I'd like feedback on whether people would be interested or not.

Happy Valentine's Day!
