All my friends are getting published!

I love the title of my blog! The last few months have been an absolute whirlwind of good news for so many of my friends. Now, I just have to catch up on all the good reading!
I finally finished The Historian. It was a great book, and really rich in detail, but not a fast read for me. I started reading it back in November and only finished it a couple of weeks ago. (I do have the Holidays to blame for some of that slow reading, btw) As Mel can attest, I didn't know much about vampire lore (you mean they're undead?) until I read this book. Watching Dark Shadows as a kid apparently didn't educate me enough. I hear Elizabeth Kostova got a cool $2 million advance on the book and that it's being made into a movie. I'll definitely want to see that.

But I'm rambling here. Back to the point of my blog, because unfortunately, I don't know Elizabeth Kostova. The Warrior Trainer is finally out! You might remember that Gerri's fabulous book was the winner of the American Title 2 contest. I just got my copy and can't wait to sink my teeth into it.

Another wonderful read out is Kate Pearce's Antonia's Bargain. I read an early version of this and can't wait to read the finished results. The cover is absolutely gorgeous!

It's all about attitude, baby

Here's a little ditty my sister sent me this morning via email. It was sent to her by her friend, Liz Hienkle, who has been waging a successful batttle against breast cancer. It brought a smile to my face, and I hope it does the same for you:

There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head. Well," she said, "I think I'll braid my hair today?" So she did and she had awonderful day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head."H-M-M," she said, "I think I'll part my hair down the middle today?" So she did and she had a grand day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on herhead. "Well," she said, "today I'm going to wear my hair in a pony tail." So she did and she had a fun, fun day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn't a single hair on her head."YEA!" she exclaimed, "I don't have to fix my hair today!"

Attitude is everything. Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
Live simply,Love generously,Care deeply,Speak kindly.......Leave the rest to God.
