Celebrating a Trailer for Imogene

It's Friday and time to celebrate, thanks to Lexa Cain's cool blog hop, "Celebrate the Small Things". Lexa's novel, Soul Cutter, is a paranormal suspense that takes place in Egypt. Go HERE to see Alexa's blog.

Her co-hosts for the blog hop are
L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge and
Katie @ TheCyborgMom.

On another note, some ugly spammers have been showing up on her blog, signing up for the hop. Does anyone know how to block a spammer from a blog?

I'm celebrating a trailer that a friend made for my middle grade mystery that's coming out June 15, Imogene and the Case of the Missing Pearls.  It's a fun video. His daughter plays the part of Imogene. I thought she did a great job. What do you think? Just click on the book cover below to see it:

I'm also celebrating TGIF. It's been a hectic week.
What are you celebrating today?

I Just Want to Celebrate

I have always loved that song. And I love it that Lexa Cain has a bloghop dedicated to celebrating the small things on Fridays.

You can go to her blog HERE and join the fun.

Today I'm celebrating Victoria Lindstrom's interview on her delightful blog Writ of Whimsy,  and a school visit, both about my book.

Have a great day!

Friday Already?

It's Friday -- time to celebrate the small things again as part of Lexa Cain's Celebrate the Small Things Blog Hop, sponsored byL.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge and Katie @ TheCyborgMom. You can go join the linky list at Lexa's blog -- Lexa Cain.

Adobe Flash all fixed now. Back to pretty pictures!

I'm celebrating a really wonderful visit by our niece in Minnesota and her two teenage sons over the last week. (They arrived on a Wednesday and left Wednesday night.) We hadn't seen them in ages, so it was a real treat.)

And I'm celebrating having completed two interview questionnaires for coming posts about my new book. It was an enjoyable experience, mulling over the questions and answering them.

That's it for today. Hope you all have a fabulous week-end. Hope, too, I can offer a more colorful post next week.
