Celebrate the Small Things 20-7-18

This post is part of Lexa Cain's bloghop, Celebrate the Small Things. Head on over there to join up!

What am I celebrating this week?

Kissed releases today.  It's an anthology I have a novella in, and the theme is kissing - every story starts and ends with one.  To celebrate, the Kissed authors are doing a live Facebook thing throughout the day tomorrow.  You can check it out here.  I will be doing an hour from 2pm -3pm EST.    If you have anything you've always wanted to ask me, here's an opportunity.  You'll have to excuse me if I'm dopey... It'll be 6am here.

It's the last day of the school holidays!  After two weeks of doing very little, the kids are heading back to school on Monday.  So today I've taken the day off to spend with them and do something fun.  I think bowling and movies might be on the cards.

I'm still making progress on my book being written using prompts. I'm just over 16K in, and things are beginning to take shape.  I'm looking forward to editing this one because I can already see where things will need tightening and where I will need to expand things.  But this is proving to be an interesting experiment, and one I'm finding very useful.  I will just have to try and get to the end of the story at around the 40K mark so I have the space to add 20K or so in edits.

What are you celebrating this week?


  1. That's too bad that you have to get up so early, and on a Saturday. Have fun with the kids!

  2. Congratulations. What a unique theme and story challenge for an anthology. Enjoy your week-end with the kids.

    I'm celebrating the discovery of two poetry groups that meet at the same place at different times — only three & 1/2 blocks from my house. I've gone to a couple meetings of each, and the poets are so good and the advice so helpful.

  3. Congrats on the release.
