Small Things Hop: Words, Sliding on the Edge, Princess of Las Pulgas

Words are the small things to celebrate every day!

Reading is a joy . . .anywhere, and for millions. Yet so many people can't:
read a prescription drug label
open a bank account
get a credit card
read street signs
complete a job application,

so today I'm celebrating WORDS because I can read and understand their message.

I'm also celebrating finally getting Sliding on the Edge out as an ebook. It has been a long haul from publisher debacle to restoration of rights to this.

Then Princess of Las Pulgas is free until July 1.

Small Things add up, don't they? What are your Small Things this week? Be sure to visit others in the hop. They have lots to Celebrate.

    Congratulations on your book!!! I am also celebrating I can't not just read but do it in two languages. I would miss all this fun if I wouldn't know English. :D

    1. Bi-lingual, bi-cultural people are so privileged. I wish we could all be more international, Al.

  13. Congratulations on getting your book out on Kindle! One of mine will be out in that format very soon as well. You're right that so many people are not able to appreciate words and what they mean. It's very sad.

  14. congrats on the ebook, milady! And us in the book business, really often forget that there are so many people out there who can't even read nor write :( And this modern ear of communication gadgets doesn't really inspire kids to write and read :(

  31. Another blog hop! I like words and especially if they are written in proper English as in English, English. Although, I also like to make up words. Thus, "Argggghhhhhh", has become an officially recognised word. What an honor..oops...honour!

    Glad your, "Sliding on the Edge", is out on eekbook, or whatever it's called. "Princess of Las Pulgas"? Must check that out and my maps of California and Nevada.

    Thank you for your kind, supportive comment on my latest posting, Lee.
