Celebrate The Small Things:Thanksgiving

It being Thanksgiving in the U.S., I'm posting this a day early.

First, I'm grateful for this very blog-hop and Lexa Cain for maintaining it. You guys have been encouraging, especially during the weeks when I haven't been doing well.

Second, I love the internet. I can talk to people from around the world on everything from theology to movies to racism to writing or I can find resources on subjects I never would have known about otherwise. It is just plain amazing.

Now for the stuff that's specific to this week.

  • My brother has recently realized he's asexual. So far, our other family members have been ok with it.
  • I've been following the #4thPrecinctShutdown protest in Minneapolis, and so far, no one has been killed despite being shot at.
  • For the first time in a while, I went to my local library and used bookstore. I was looking for craft books, and I found plenty.

Have a good weekend and a happy Thanksgiving.

Self-Help 101 or: How I Learned to Take Over the World Through Tolerating My Family cover reveal

This sounds fun.

Title:Self-Help 101 or: How I Learned to Take Over the World Through Tolerating My Family
Author:L.G. Keltner
Cover Art:L.G. Keltner
Release Date:December 1, 2015


Dani Finklemeier has decided to write a self-help book about how to take over the world, but she’s not sure where to start.  After all, she’s only seventeen and looking for a better way to make money than babysitting.  She buys a self-help book that promises to teach her how to write a self-help book in the hope of getting the job done.

Not that it’ll be easy to get any work done this holiday season.  Her family is staying at the house for Christmas, and fights break out almost immediately.  Dani also has to deal with the fallout from an unexpected kiss with her best friend Seth and the feelings that go along with it.  On edge around her family and unsure how to interact with the one person she’s trusted with everything in the past, she can only take what inspiration she can from the crazy circumstances surrounding her and see what happens.

One way or another, it should be an interesting holiday.

(Yes it should.)


L.G. Keltner spends most of her time trying to write while also cleaning up after her crazy but wonderful kids and hanging out with her husband.  Her favorite genre of all time is science fiction, and she’s been trying to write novels since the age of six.  Needless to say, those earliest attempts weren’t all that good.

Her non-writing hobbies include astronomy and playing Trivial Pursuit.

You can typically find L.G. lurking around her blog, on Twitter, or on her Facebook page.

IWSG:Another Bad Half-Month

Back for another round of sharing our problems.

The end of October was much like the end of August for me, in that a lot of negative things happened. A death in the family, being stuck hours away from home and not getting back until nearly midnight (which happened two weekends in a row), sudden feelings of depression and wanting to be alone, and freaking cramps have been making things difficult. In short, I've been too busy, sick, or depressed to write, plus I've been avoiding most social media for days.

So the next few days (or maybe weeks) will be spent trying to catch up on writing and visiting people. And watching TV, because it makes me feel better and the Hulu episodes are going to expire soon.
