Celebrate the Small Things-April 6, 2018

It's Friday!  Let's Celebrate the Small Things with Lexa Cain.  I am her co-host.

Today is my son Jude's 9th birthday!  I don't know how he's gotten so big.  It doesn't seem possible.  He's bringing cupcakes to school to share with his classmates, and he's excited about that.  Meanwhile my other kids are hoping there are leftovers to bring home so they can have some too.

I just signed a publishing contract for a short story that was accepted for an anthology earlier in the year.  I also got paid for that sale this week, which was nice.  We need to buy a new tire for one of our cars, so part of the money will go toward that.  We must have run something over while on our way to celebrate Easter, because there was a big hole in our newly-flattened tire.  Oh well.  It happens.

I have a few other exciting things going on in the world of writing, but I'll share the relevant details in the near future.

What would you like to celebrate?


  1. Congratulations on the short story.
    Sorry about the tire. You can either look at it as bad luck the tire will take your payment or good luck you got the payment so you can afford a new tire.

  2. Happy birthday to your son!
    Congrats on the short story, too.

  3. Congratulations! There's nothing better than that check no matter how much it is!
    Happy Birthday Jude! My birthday was the 4th. I love spring!
