Celebrate the Small Things!

Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly celebration created by VikLit and now hosted by Lexa Cain to celebrate the happenings of the week, however small or large. You can learn all about it and sign up for it here. CelebrateSmallThings_Badge

Some great things to celebrate this week, not the least of which is sunshine!! June was such a rainy month here that it hasn’t felt at all like summer.

My first book event last Sunday, The Craft of Small Publishing in Vermont at the River Arts Center, went well. It was a small venue, which was great for me for a first event. I wasn’t half as nervous as I thought I’d be, and I sold a book! Yay! I know one book doesn’t sound like much, but for me it was a success. I like to set small goals, so I’m less likely to be disappointed.

I visited Bear Pond Books in Stowe, VT, yesterday and dropped off two copies of my book for their shelves. Hooray for independent book stores!

We stopped at the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream factory on the way home from Stowe and got ice cream cones to celebrate. I can personally attest to the fact that B & J’s salted caramel blondie ice cream is delicious!

Looking forward to the Fourth of July parade tomorrow and good times with friends at the fireworks. Happy Birthday, America!!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

What other celebrations are going on out there?

  1. Happy 4th, Lori ๐Ÿ˜€. I am ‘low-keying’ it this weekend with a few good books and some welcome sunshine.

    So glad you’ve been making progress with your book and keeping your successes in perspective. That habit gies a long way towards living a life if contentment, diesn’t it?

    Hugs! Sammy

  2. Congrats on your event and selling a book!! Keep it up! If I lived anywhere near that Ben & Jerry’s I’d weigh 400 pounds. I adore ice cream!! Have a great weekend!

  3. Congratulations on the book event! Putting yourself out there and organising an event is a success in itself because you put yourself out of your comfort zone. That you made a sale and found a new reader is the cherry on the cake ๐Ÿ™‚

    And it’s very exciting that your book is in a physical bookstore – seems like you ahve lots of wonderful things going on with your book at the moment!
