If you work in an office building, you get to celebrate things. Shirley in accounting has a birthday, and they get a cake for the break room. The VP celebrates ten years with the company, and there’s a little reception. Your team makes top sales for a quarter, and you all pat each other on the back.
But when you work from home writing books, it’s hard to have that “camaraderie” feeling that you get from Shirley’s birthday cake. So day-to-day, you have to find your own things to celebrate that makes your little successes feel real.
Well, last week, a friend of mine from Edmonton, Alberta told me that my newest release, THE LAWMAN’S RUNAWAY BRIDE, already had some holds on it at the library. And that was exciting for me! It felt… real. People wanted to read it and put a hold on it, willing to wait to read my book. That’s a high compliment, in my humble opinion.
So there you go! The screenshot proof that my friend sent to me.
The little things we celebrate. 🙂 It reminds me that there is indeed life away from my desk!
