Zoinks to Zen!


Anybody else totally EXHAUSTED?

I love A to Z, really I do. But I think this year I maybe should have opted out... then again, how was I to know life would throw up a couple huge challenges? I KNEW I'd be prepping for a book release promotion, and THAT with A to Z was a lot already, but throw in a teen imitating a juvenile delinquent, a different teen turning into an ADULT and a death in the family and it just pretty much overwhelmed me. In fact I've been BAD on getting that book promo organized.

ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!!! Watch for The Begonia Bribe in your local bookstore!!!


I will remark more on the EVENT of A to Z in a couple days, but today just let me wipe my brow and share a few things that bring me Zen...


Books, endless books... (and art) (and old stuff)

A nice massage...

A beachy cocktail...



And because it is Z day...

Ahhh, I sure could go for a massage right about now. Congratulations on finishing the challenge!

Diana Wilder said...

Splendid that you finished the challenge! And more splendid about the Begonia Bribe, which I will purchase!

This is a good Z post - I especially like all the Zen pics. Aaaaah! :)

Melissa Menten said...

Congrats on making it through the alphabet and the month!

You had a lot going on this month. Coming off a book promotion with many other projects on the side meant I was crunched for time, too.

Alison DeLuca said...

So very sorry to hear about the tough family stuff, but hurray for the book release! And, also the cocktail and zebra.

*Thought* Could I drink a cocktail whilst riding on a zebra? Would that bring zen?

Teresa Coltrin said...

But, you made it and what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right?
No?

Love the Zen here...think I feel a little more relaxed now! Congrats on that upcoming release and hope things start settling down for you now.

It was tough, but you did it! Looking forward to hosting you next month, Hart.

Jan Morrison said...

Yah! You did it! And ending with a zebra is always good. Here is a joke I just made up - How is the Serengeti like Bridget Bardot? They both have Z-bras! Okay, it stinks but it is hard to make up jokes.

That zen picture is very needed right now.

Congrats on the win! (Especially with all that you have been through. Double congrats)

Rhonda Parrish said...

Wow. Congrats on finishing this challenge in the face of so many others. That's impressive :)

Best of luck with your book release, I have one myself coming up soon so I know what you mean about the prep before hand.

Mel Chesley said...

Zebras! You may have had some hurdles thrown in your path, but you handled it with style and grace. I'm glad you kept going to the end. Good job!

Helena said...

Now that you've reached Z, you deserve a rest, as in Zzzzzzzzz...

You persevered admirably through some tough times, Hart, so now just relax and get ready for the glorious release of Begonia Bribe!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Hart .. you've had a lot going on - and I hope some of that Zen will come your way.

Sounds like the Begonia Bribe will be keeping you occupied in May - all the very best ...

For now - some peace at home Ihope .. cheers and a happy time ahead .. Hilary
