A Birthday Gift – To You? Or to Me?

Only five days until Where Dandelions Grow is released, folks! *cue happy dance*

I figured maybe I should celebrate by writing a list of five things I’m thankful for, but that’s not a very long list. Therefore I thought maybe I should write a list of five hundred things I’m thankful for. But, I have seven author interviewers and numerous emails to answer today, plus I’m visiting grandparents out of state, so I figured I don’t exactly have time to do that this morning.

Next, I figured maybe I’d celebrate by getting an iced coffee – I did that the other day and made the coffee last two days (because I forgot and got it regular instead of decaf, #oops). Iced coffees go a long ways to making every-day activities seem extra-special, as well as giving me a dose of energy.  (Especially when they’re not decaf.)

Then I figured that I’d celebrate by letting y’all know why I choose September 26th-30th for the book release and blog tour.

On the 30th I will officially be a quarter of a century old. That seemed like a milestone to take note of, and what would be a better way to make sure it didn’t fade into obscurity in my mind than releasing a book on that date?

(In plain English, y’all: my birthday is September 30th, and I’ll be 25.)

So, in a very roundabout way, releasing Where Dandelions Grow this month was a birthday present – to me, and to all of y’all. Cause I hope that bunches of you join in the blog tour activities and giveaways, buy the book, enjoy it, and feel a bit of the birthday cheer seeping into your world.

Plus, that way Where Dandelions Grow and I will share the same birthday month, and that pretty much means I’ve reached the height of being an author, right?

    It makes me happy that I’ll be posting my review on the 30th – to celebrate that milestone! 🙂 I can’t think of a better way to celebrate one’s birthday than publishing a book. I’m so excited for it to be released…congratulations and happy early birthday. ^__^

      Aww, thanks! And yep, I’m (obviously) pretty excited about it. It’s going to be fun having all that excitement going on during my birthday week.
      This book release has been a lot of work, but so much fun!
