Happy Birthday to Me!

For those of you who do not have a holiday birthday, here is something you might not know about those of us that do: we have a love/hate relationship with our birthdays. I mean, on the one hand, it's my birthday! On the other hand, everyone is tired, nursing an eggnog hangover, engrossed in playing with new gadgets, or oblivious to everything but the holidays sales.

In my younger, more immature days, I loathed my birthday.Luckily, now that I am thirty-something (when did that happen?), I am pleased to say that I have a much more adult relationship with my birthday. Partially, this is because of expectations-- I no longer care about gifts or parties nearly as much as I used to. However, a big part of this is that I have such an appreciation of how blessed I am every day that any birthday shenanigans are icing on the proverbial cake.

However, there is something I really want for my birthday this year (well, every day), and that is people to read my writing. So as a birthday present to myself, I am getting my books out there for today at discounts up to 100% off:

 So, if Santa brought you a Kindle, might I suggest one of the above as a first purchase? Already read one (or more) of my books? Amazon reviews are EXCELLENT birthday presents as well :)

I hope everyone had wonderful holidays. Wishing you all peace, joy, relaxation, and blessings in the New Year.


  1. Happy Birthday to you, and I shall endeavor to remember to download your book tonight when I get home from work. I love free books!
