Happy Birthday to Me

It's my birthday! Yay me! I've opened gifts from my family and my husband. Everyone knocked it out of the park. Mom and Dad got me an Amazon gift card which netted me six new books. Shannon and John got me custom made notepads with my picture and "A Word From Jennifer" on them as well as a custom made calendar that includes family photos and all of the birthdays and anniversaries for that side of the family. It was really cool. I love that kind of thing.

Jeff was a sneaky person and wouldn't tell me any hints at all. Plus, I've come to learn that he will obfuscate the gift in different boxes. This year, he put it in a large box, wrapped in a smaller box, and weighted it down with eight books. The gift? A set of black pearl earrings. They are gorgeous! And I would never have guessed.

Another gift to me is the fact that Human for a Day is featured today on John Scalzi's The Big Idea. This is huge and lovely and I really like what I wrote about the anthology. I appreciate that John has big and small press in his Big Idea column. This is my first anthology with a big six publisher and I really want to do more. It also amuses me that it did come out on my birthday. Almost like John is giving me an extra special gift.

I've only found one review of Human for a Day that I can find. It is a review by The Maine Edge staff writer Allen Adams and he likes it. That makes me happy.

This has been a fabulous birthday so far and I have a party scheduled for tonight.
