There is an expression that goes:
Squeeze a few lemons, add bright lime slices, the juice of one blood orange . . . and turn a less than advantageous situation into something good.
Well, life has given me not lemons but cherries, chocolate covered ones at that, so I am making . . . a jubilee.
A jubilee is an occasion of celebration, a commemoration, a festival; it can be a golden jubilee; a wine-and-cheese jubilee; or even a beer-and-brats jubilee.
Mine is a Cherries Jubilee, and it extends from October 1 to October 22: twenty-two days to celebrate my birthday, which falls on October 22 (no, it is not my golden birthday!) and twenty-two days to celebrate the publication of my first mystery novel, FOR EVERY ACTION There Are Consequences.
In conjunction with another celebration, Coral Russell recently interviewed me on her blog talk radio at Alchemy of Scrawl. Coral is also the author of The (almost) Complete DIY Guide to eBook Publishing and contributing author of Playing with Fire (Anthology of Horror) along with Chryse Wymer, Brian Fatah Steele, and many other great authors.
My interview with Coral runs 15 minutes and we do get a bit silly at times, but you are welcome to opt out at any point! So if you have a few minutes, please check it out at:
