So many of you have commented here for my “Happiness” contest, sixty-five yesterday in fact. I wish I could respond to each of you. Some of you are going through difficult times, still managing to be happy amidst the chaos. Some have trials ahead, but are still–forgive the cliche–stopping to smell the roses.
Many of you thanked me for my books, a sentiment that always gives me goosebumps. I can only say thank you for reading them. This is the best job in the world, and in no small part because it’s brought me face to face with you.
Janya’s story begins tomorrow and concludes on Friday. I hope you’ll enjoy learning more about this second character in Happiness Key. But today, I wanted to share some links with you.
First, I blogged this morning at Fresh Fiction, a fun site for booklovers. You can find me right here. Check out the site while you’re at it. Starting tomorrow Fresh Fiction begins a Christmas in July giveway, lots of prizes from lots of authors, including me. Enter and win. I’ll post that link once it’s up.
Second, three just for fun videos you might enjoy. Some of you know my family owns land just over the mountains from the Shenandoah Valley, near Charlottesville. My oldest son has a video camera on one of the trails running through the property. You’ll enjoy what he’s recorded. (And yes, this is the same son who brought us the bird photos.)
My husband insisted I watch this You Tube video with him. I don’t know why this brings tears to my eyes. It’s just a plain feel good moment. A gift for all of us. By the way, I’m going to be in this train station (Antwerp, Belgium) in September. I sure hope they do a repeat.
And finally, one last video. My home town–and my Barnes and Noble! This is hysterical, particularly if you’ve ever visited any of the DC suburbs.
So tomorrow, Janya. Today, many thanks to all of you. Have some laughs on me!
