Oh, my goodness… What a week. I’ve got a million and one things to do, so I’m going to make a bullet list of some of the highlights of the past few days and wish you a happy weekend!
- My mom’s surgery went great! Thank you for praying. She is in quite a bit of pain, and it’s going to be a long recovery, but she is still a walking miracle. Praise the Lord!
- The radio tour was a blast! On the internationally syndicated show we ended up talking about One Body One Hope the entire time, and there were a couple of hosts who wanted to grill me about The Snow Angel, but all in all I think it was a success. Have you ever spoken publicly, and then wondered afterwards what in the world you said? Uh, yeah. That about sums it up. 😉
- Launch day was amazing! FAR FROM HERE is officially released into the big, wide world. And, wow, I’m blown away by the response. There is ONE copy left at Amazon.com. They sold out. Or, almost. Quick! Someone hop over there and buy the last one — and then scoot back here and tell me that you did it! I’d love to know who tipped it over the edge.
- I’m rocking the single-parent thing right now… And hope I can keep it up for a few more days. School soup supper tonight, and then tomorrow my two big boys have their first hockey tournament of the season. Woo-hoo! I have Gatorade, granola bars, and oranges bought, and we’re ready to pack up the car and head out for an entire day of hockey-mania. I love being a hockey mom. Go Tornados!
Thanks so much for celebrating my book release with me this week! I really appreciate all the warm wishes and encouragement you’ve sent my way. From emails to phone calls and even flowers from friends, this has been an amazing week. Thanks especially if you joined me in giving away a book (or two!). I’m loving the stories that are trickling in (I think you all must be shy — I’m receiving personal accounts instead of comments on blog posts!). Anyway, I’m excited to tell you about how I’ll be giving away books, too… But I’ll save that for another blog post. Also, I owe THREE special readers a signed copy of FAR FROM HERE. But since so many of the stories have been privately relayed, I’m going take care of those giveaways on my own.
Have a fabulous weekend!
