I'm a bit late celebrating this week, as life has been pretty busy. But I always like to join in this celebration when I can. Celebrate the Small things is a blog hop co-sponsored by Lexa Cain @ Lexa Cain , L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge , and Tonja Drecker @ Tidbits Blog. You can go to any of these sites to add your name to the links, if you want to participate. I recommend it, because it's always fun to see positive news that others are celebrating, and to share your own as well. 



Today I'm celebrating the Kickstarter Campaign I mentioned last week for the anthology of Sherlock Holmes stories that will be published in June.  The campaign started last week and has been amazingly successful so far. It runs until the end of this month, and if you join in, you can win prizes -- among them, a copy of the book when it comes out. If you go to THIS SITE and scroll down the page, in the right margin you will see what the prizes are for each level of support. The book will have 12 original tales about Sherlock Holmes, told from different perspectives  than Dr. Watson. (Thus the title -- Beyond Watson).

I'm also celebrating my niece's new CD, Enjoy the Ride, that will be released April 8th. She's a blues singer (Debbie Bond) and lives in Alabama with her husband, Radiator Rick. I'm a proud auntie, for sure. At this point, in the States, they play mainly on the east coast, but they've toured in Europe several times, and we are hoping to get them out here to California some day. You can hear a teaser from the album HERE, and learn more about her at her website HERE.  Go have a listen.

Happy Easter, and may you have a basketful of things to celebrate!

  2. Hi, Geo. So glad you liked her sound. It's been great watching her develop her voice and style through the years. She's been getting some good reviews, too.

  4. Thanks, Rosi. One thing I like the "celebrate" blog hop is that it makes one pause and remember good things happening. Have a good day.
