How to Celebrate When Published

Posted by AJ Blythe at Thursday, March 22, 2012 0 comments
Lots of my writing friends celebrate the publication of their books in some way, for example, a few of them buy a new charm for their bracelet - which they purchased to celebrate the publication of their first book. This is a lovely idea and I'd love to have something to celebrate the success of my first publication (when it happens), and to then remember each subsequent book.

Trouble is, I have no idea what!

I have a charm bracelet which I love, and don't need another. I'm not a big wine drinker, and don't particularly like to shop (more on this in another post). I'd love the anticipation of a reward.

Anyone got any suggestions?  I'll base a future post on what my celebration will be :)

Of all the diversions of life, there is none so proper to fill its empty spaces as the reading of useful and entertaining authors.

Books I Read in 2011

Posted by AJ Blythe at Thursday, March 15, 2012 2 comments
I didn't think I read many books in 2011. I know I didn't read as many as I could have, as there were many days where I read nothing (and that is not me at all). And I definitaly didn't read as many books as I would have liked. But even so, when I look back over the year I was surprised at the number of books I did read.

Hopefully my tally for 2012 will be even better...

I'm back...

Life and I seem to have had a collision and I dropped all those balls we're supposed to keep in the air. But I think I've picked up (most) of the pieces and am back with your regular broadcasts *wink*.
