Hello, everyone! Welcome to a celebration. What are we celebrating? Eeyore’s birthday. Many happy returns, everyone!
No, actually we are celebrating 50+ followers on this blog. I wrote a status update on Goodreads last week asking for celebration ideas when I hit fifty followers. At that point it was “time to start thinking about it”. Give Jesseca and Elaina a round of applause for following my blog soon after to make this happen. 😉
These are just two of the fantastic followers I’ve been blessed with! All of you have been a great encouragement and a ton of fun. I’d like to take a moment to thank you. Hats off to all of you ordinaries. 😉
Let’s have ice cream to celebrate! I’m giving away eBook copies of my newly published short story “Enjoy the Poodle Skirt”! Just enter your email address into the box below (I promise I won’t use it for anything else), and I will send your free “ice cream” right over to you. 😉 Chocolate or vanilla? Or Oreo? 😀
(Offer is over! Sorry if you missed it. You can find the book for $0.99 on Amazon.)
Okay, now for the giveaway…
Eek! Just look at those prizes! 😉 You can follow this link to enter, and even if you don’t have any social media accounts there is something that you can do to earn points!
(Giveaway is over! Thanks for coming. 😉 )
I asked my family members and my friends on Goodreads to give me random words to incorporate into a challenge story. I chose these ten… aviation, scintillate, denouement, lilt, triplet, shabby, RV, Chublins, susurrus, and mold. See if you can spot them in the story! 😉
Chublins stumped up the steps to the shabby RV, dragging his toy airplane behind him. His lip stuck out farther than his nose, and hot angry tears spilled over onto his cheeks. He trailed into the kitchen wailing loudly.
“Ah, Chublins. There you are,” his mother said with a lilt to her voice. She picked up the third triplet and put him in his highchair next to the others.
He howled even louder.
“Chublins, what’s wrong?”
He shoved his airplane towards her.
Mother took it from him and held it up to the light, causing it to scintillate. The propeller was missing. “Oh, it’ll be all right, dear. I’m sure we can take it to Grandpa, and he will mold you a new one since knows everything about aviation.”
The comfortingly susurrus noise she made next as she stroked his wiry curls had him drying his tears and settling down to a happy denouement of pancakes with maple syrup smeared out to his ears.
Part one of my bookshelf tour! (Excuse the funny frame size, we were using a phone camera.) 😉 In this video I cover what I’m currently reading and show you the first shelf of my books. Enjoy!
Here’s part two in which I show you my second shelf as well as a few books from “the vault” and my desk. 😉
Thanks you all so much for coming to celebrate with me! Don’t forget to enter that giveaway and read Peter Pan. 😉
