So many of my favorite things are being celebrated in June, I wanted to list a few.
Along with the all important Father’s Day, D-Day, and the first day of summer, June brings us National Fishing and Camping weeks for the outdoor enthusiasts. For my fellow animal lovers, June is Adopt-a-Cat month, as well as Zoo and Aquarium month. And if you’re looking for an excuse to eat chocolate (and who isn’t) June is the month that officially celebrates chocolate ice cream, chocolate éclair, and chocolate pudding days.
The Tasmanian Devil, Garfield (the cat, not our 20th President), Donald
Duck, and my daughter’s favorite Sesame Street character, Oscar the Grouch, have
birthdays in June. For all those who adore out-of-this- world experiences, June
brought us the first U.S. Spacewalk (1965), the premier of the movie E.T. (which
I saw on a first date with a fellow that I have now been married to for 30
years), and this Sunday, June 23, there will be a Super-moon, the largest full moon of the year.
To celebrate all the celebrations, I am giving away free Kindle downloads of my book, Breaking TWIG, on June 23rd. So treat yourself to a free book, some
chocolate ice cream, and the wonder of a Super-moon.
I’ve had a busy start to the summer with family and friends coming from Texas to visit us in our beautiful Montana valley. I suspect they were looking for a
little relief from that Texas heat and humidity. It’s nice to get out of the air conditioning sometimes and be able to sleep with the windows open. There’s also a soft rain falling tonight, so that makes it twice as sweet.
For those who have requested a printed version of Breaking TWIG, I wanted to let you know the paperback is being proofed now, and I hope to have it available later this month. And yes, it will include the reading group discussion guide for book
The Kindle ebook version of Breaking TWIG is free, July 1. The reading group discussion guide is not found in the Kindle format, but if you’d like a copy of the guide, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out a comment card on this website. Enjoy your Fourth of July holiday and your summer.
It seems May is a month of celebrations. In addition to the
birthdays (my son and brother's), graduations, Mother’s Day, and the Memorial
Day holiday, this month has many lesser known, but equally deserving holidays
to celebrate. For example, did you know May was Family Wellness Month
and National Military Appreciation Month?
Being from the Gulf Coast, I especially want to mention that May
is American Wetlands Month and give a special shout out to Capt. Wendy at
bayouwoman.com for all her work in helping restore and protect the wetlands of
In May, we also have National New Friends, Old Friends Week: 15-21.
It’s the perfect time to reconnect with an old friend and reach out to a
new one. Eliza Doolittle Day is May 20th (for our cousins across the pond),
and we can’t forget May is also National Barbeque Month,in honor of all
grill-masters everywhere, especially Nathan, my husband and griller
extraordinaire for almost thirty years.
So in honor of so many wonderful happenings in May, I am giving
#free #kindle downloads of my ebook, Breaking TWIG. on May
20th. Find it at: http://amzn.to/rPjpKo
