Fixing Up Fridays

Today is a very good Friday. Yes, a very good Friday, indeed.  I learned a couple days ago that my book, Reality Bites, has been selected as a Finalist in Juvenile Fiction for The Book of the Year Award given by ForeWord Reviews magazine. Since St. Patty's Day is just around the corner, combined with the fact that I am a wee bit Irish, I'm hoping that St. Patty will shine his luck down on me and help me win a medal in the final rounds of judging. Of course, that luck will need to be generous and extend for 3 months, since the final winners will not be announced until June. Despite the fact that I'm up against some tough competiton (Brandon Mull, Candy Shop Wars book 2), I have to believe that Anything Can Happen.

Perhaps this calls for a nod at the song. It is Friday after all.

And since it is Friday, I suppose I shall have to suggest something good to eat as well. However, that doesn't necessarily mean it has to be cooked. Avocados have been great lately, and there is nothing better than slicing one open, sprinkling it with lemon pepper and eating it slice by slice. Following it with a tall glass of fresh squeezed OJ, makes it even better.

So there you have it. I've walloped you with four great things for Friday in the short span of a couple paragraphs. Enjoy your weekend! And if you've read Reality Bites, and enjoyed it, let me and others know by sharing your review on line.

Make it a great day!
