My husband an I attended our daughter’s awards ceremony last Tuesday. We watched her accept her awards for Most Inspirational Award in Music (she’s a violinist) and President’s award for Excellence in Academics. She’s in middle school and will be attending high school next year (Lordy, am not sure if I’m ready for that). Watching my daughter glow in front of the seventh and eight graders, faculty, and guests made me think about the hard work we put in all year long. Just like everybody else, we had tough mornings, late nights working on her homework, hours spent on the road for practice, etc. But all of our sacrifices resulted to her getting an award.
My daughter proudly showed us her certificates. Holding the tangible evidence of her hard work was amazing.
I made sacrifices here and there with my writing, too. My latest rewards are contracts with Red Rose Publishing and eXtasy Books. Also, (yup, I worked hard on this one as well) My Pleasure, a short story from eXtasy Books is another award I got. Mobipocket rated this book “Adults Only” ;).
Like my daughter, I would like to share the evidence of my hard work by giving away a copy of My Pleasure in PDF format. How? Let me know what gives you pleasure in life or just simply leave any comments on this blog.
My Pleasure, available in PDF and Kindle format.
