Celebrate the Small Things

This week I would like to take a moment and thank Viklit for starting this wonderful hop. Celebrate the Small Things is a wonderful way to end each week and look forward to the next. Thank you Vik!

My Celebration this week is:
1. Getting a call on Tuesday from a unique books and antiques shop owner from small town Port Gamble this week. She asked for 5 copies of Champion in the Darkness to sell from her store, and wants to me to bring some promo flyers for her front window. Really cool!!

The backstory on this: I gave my parents two copies of my book to take with them on their secondary, non-motorcycle, road trip up the Peninsula (we live on mid to south part of the Washington peninsula), and my mom talked to three shop owners about my books and brought back their business cards. So, now, my mom is my #1 PR expert.

And, I would like to highlight some blogger buddies I love who have celebrations this week:

Tara Tyler's book, Pop Travel, is out!!! I downloaded a kindle copy because I couldn't stand waiting for a paperback, and I have to say: it's a thrilling read!!!

Find it at Amazon, and find out more about Tara's Pop Travel Blog Tour! (I'll be hosting Tara later - Yay!)

Also, Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh's CassaStorm is coming soon, and he has an awesome book trailer!



Plus, there's a Goodreads giveaway for CassaStorm!

And S.K. Anthony had a cover reveal. Isn't this a gorgeous cover?

 
And Indie author, Laura Diamond is releasing her book, Endure today! Goodreads Link
 
Also, Ali Cross and a group of other writers who write for tweens have started a new site called Emblazon. It's a cool site!

Tyrean, that's great! I should send my mother some books. Of course, she's never read them, so that might be a problem.
Thanks for featuring my trailer.
And some cool new books and covers!

Put your mom on the payroll - she is worth it.

Tyrean Martinson said...

S.K. - Thanks and you're welcome! It's a gorgeous cover!

Alex - really? Send them to her anyway, and see if she'll sell them for you!
You're welcome!

Diane - Yes, she is!

Good news for everyone! Way to go, Tyrean's mom! A supportive mom is the greatest thing it the world. I was tickled to death when my mom's friends cancelled bunco so they could come to my signing.
