Let's Get Our Party On!

July 24th is approaching quickly and I can't be anymore excited for the release of Accepting Magnolia. In celebration, I'm going to throw a party and you are all invited! Join me on July 23rd between the hours of 10am to 8pm for some fun and prizes. You're not going to want to miss this!

It's been a busy week around here. Kids are back from their vacations and our guests have gone home which means routines are back in full swing. I love when everyone is here visiting. We went to the lake for the Fourth, enjoyed the boat, did some swimming, lit off fireworks, shared in the company of out extended family and had an all around great time. But all good times must come to an end and as much as I hate to see our family leave, I'm relieved to get my house back in order.

If you didn't see my Instastories this week you may have missed my book burning ceremony. Okay, it wasn't much of a ceremony as it was a tribute to my Gramps, but I did burn a copy of Accepting Magnolia. **Gasp** Why are you burning perfectly good, beautiful books, you might ask? Since I wrote Accepting Magnolia for my Gramps, I'm determined to give it to him. So, I cremated the book as my grandfather was cremated and will have the ashes placed inside my grandparents crypt. He's getting this book dammit! He's also getting pennies. Lots and lots of pennies. I know it sounds weird but he came to me in a dream and told me he needed pennies. And so, pennies and a burned book he shall get. 

I hope you all are enjoying your summer. Mine has been pretty low-key as I've been trying to heal from knee surgery. Eh, it's not healing as fast as I'd like but I'm far better of now than I was last year. With 6 weeks of down time I have managed to do absolutely nothing. For real...nothing. Okay, mostly nothing. I've written some and I've read a few books. Tell me, what are some of your summer reads? I've read Hidden Seams by Alessandra Torre. If you haven't read her books yet you must! She's amazing. Also, Twist by K.C. Enders. Holy cow, what a great book. And, Folsom by Tarryn Fisher and Willow Aster. These are all epic books I highly recommend.
