Celebrate the Small Things...

It's Friday again so we can all celebrate whatever we like.  Please be sure to stop by to check out what everyone is cheering about.
Here's what we're happy about this week:

  • I managed to find some of the Olympic Equestrian events on TV. It's annoying because they often don't broadcast them when they're scheduled. But it's been fun I like swimming, diving, track and field too. What about you?
  • We'll see my brother in law this weekend. We haven't seen him in several years because he lives far from us. One of our sons is coming too.
  • Just reviewed another great book by my friend, Janice Spina. It's called 
  • New book promotion posted by Lori Carlson/Rayvne Hawke. Thank you. Lori. You can visti the promotion for Charlie the Horse here;

Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series Book 3: The Case of the Magical Ivory Elephant 

Middle grade readers will love it.

Celebrate the Small things...

Friday snuck up on me this week, but here it is. As you probably know, we celebrate big and little things every Friday thanks to Lexa Cain. Be sure to stop by to check out what everyone has to say.
Here's what we're celebrating this week:

  • I finished a little project for my husband. He compared some British car terms with American ones. For example, did you know the English say something is "past it" when it's worn out.  Or "crackin' " is the same as awesome?
  • My little picture book in progress is doing well. We have exciting plans for it.
  • My sister and brother in-law are home safely.
  • A new book promotion by Ravyne Hawke for my book, Tails of Sweetbrier. If you'd like to check it out, here's the link:

  • The Olympics: We're really enjoying the gymnastics and swimming especially. I missed the equestrian coverage, so disappointed about that.
What are you celebrating this week?

Insecure Writer's Support Group..

Whenever it's the first Wednesday of the month, we authors have a chance to talk about whatever is making us feel insecure. Be sure to stop by to find out what everyone has to say.

If you've been following my blog, you know new things always make me a bit uneasy. The little doubt creep into my head. Can I do this? Where do I start? That's how I feel at the moment because I'm working on my first picture book. My sister, Holly will be designing the cover and doing the illustrations. Even she is a bit unsure because she won't be drawing horses or other animals. The star of the story is a tractor! I know, I'm surprised too. But I got an idea for a cute story so we'll hope for the best. We're not sure what the time frame is. My sister has lots going on so we'll have to be patient. But I'll give you updates when we have news.
What are you fretting about this month? Hope all your insecurities are tiny.
I'm sorry I forgot to check the question of the month. I guess the first story I wrote in writing school was one about a family of rabbits. It never went anywhere, which could be a good thing. D
