Celebrating a Peaceful Mind



So glad to be posting here again for Tara Tyler, aka, VikLit’s Writing blog fest, Celebrate the Small Things. There’s been too many big things going on that prevented me from posting or visiting many sites last week.

Anyway, this week I’m so happy to celebrate:
  • My “roommate” is gone! I’ve got my place and good spirits back.
  • I won my first giveaway, a $5 amazon gift card from Cathrina Constantine! Thank you!
  • Despite one day of pouring down rain this week, the weather’s back to beautiful!
  • A friend from my writer’s group invited me to introduce my book, Anticipation of the Penitent, to her book club, and they voted to read my book! It might be a while before they have the discussion because of the upcoming holidays, but I sold 4 copies at the book club. :)
  • Melissa Maygrove’s Follow Fest is a great experience. I’m still visiting many of the blogs on the list, have met some great bloggers and writers, including some other non-traditional Christian writers.
I'll be seeing you; got a lot of blog visiting to do this weekend!

  5. Oh how fun that you're going to have a book read by a book club! That seems like one of those momentous, "I've arrived" experiences. :)

    1. I hope it will be. I hope some of them do reviews too! I've learned that many people in book clubs aren't too keen on doing them. But it's still exciting anyway.

  10. What a nice list of small things to celebrate. They must feel like warm nuggets of joy in your soul. It's the small things that pitter patter our hearts.

  11. Hi Nancy! I'd like to thank you for your visit and kind, inspiring comments during the Blitz of my blog yesterday. It came at a really great time.

    1. I'm glad they did Lily! It can be hard to truly tell what's in your heart when you're going through difficult times, but I'm sure it's a blessing to some who hear your words. My prayers are with you.

  14. $5 is gold on Amazon (isn't that like 5 self-published novels?) -- way to go!
