It’s been a crazy week with the end of the school year and with my daughter “graduating” from middle school. This fall she’ll be a freshman in high school which makes me more than a little nervous. My baby is growing up way too fast.

Now that I have a moment to breathe, I can think about things to celebrate.

  1. The company I started to publish my own books, Book and Sword Publishing, is financially up and running now. I’m really excited about that!
  2. Flowers are blooming in my gardens, which always makes me happy.
  3. I’m looking forward to visiting family and spending time with my Dad this Father’s Day weekend.

What other celebrations are going on out there?

  1. Lori – those are indeed three things worth celebrating. I’m sure you worked hard to establish your company, and I wish you the best in your literary pursuits! Enjoy your weekend 🙂


  2. Funny you ask. Tonight is the 16th anniversary of the day I decided to “take control of my own life.” The details of what that means are complicated, but I made a very important decision on June 13th of 1998, and I haven’t looked back since. I’m actually having a few friends over for dinner tonight to celebrate.


  3. Sounds like a great week for you, Lori! I’ll be spending time with family this weekend as well. I also attended a wonderful editing conference this week, where I met a lot of great people and was completely energized to be among my peers. I love that feeling! 🙂


  4. Congratulations on getting Books & Swords up and running. Was it very hard to do? Do you think you’ll look for other authors to publish? I remember when my first born entered high school; I was more nervous than he was!


  5. Thanks! No, it wasn’t hard — mostly paperwork, registering with the state and such. At this point, I’m concentrating on just publishing my own books, but down the road… who knows? 🙂 I’m sure she’ll do fine in high school, but I can’t help being nervous. At least I’ve got the summer to get used to the idea.
