New Schedule and a BIG Congratulations!

First, a big, huge congratulations to my awesome bleep, critter, birthday twin, and fab writer-friend Tami Hart Johnson, who is officially a national bestselling author!!!
Bestselling author

I'm just bursting over here, so you can imagine how she feels. Here, go check her out (link).

And grab your copy of her debut cozy mystery The Azalea Assault (link)! (The cover and link are also in my sidebar -->)

As for my New Schedule, starting Wed., June 20, I'm moving my weekly post mid-week to take part in a very awesome blogging event called The Kindness Project.

I'll do my first post next week. (I'm late, I know, but I just found out last night, and I need to see how it's done!)

For now, here's what it is, and feel free to join me now or in July:

Too often kindness is relegated to a random act performed only when we’re feeling good. But an even greater kindness (to ourselves and others) occurs when we reach out even when we aren't feeling entirely whole. 

It’s not easy, and no one is perfect. But we’ve decided it’s not impossible to brighten the world one smile, one kind word, one blog post at a time. To that end, a few of us writers have established The Kindness Project, starting with a series of inspirational posts. We post the second Wednesday of every month.

Want to join us? Grab our button and spread a little kindness.

In the meantime, check out our other cool participants listed below, and I'll see you back here Wednesday! Have a great week, reader- and writer-friends~ <3

Old Kitty said...

Awww!! Lovely Hart is so naked!! We love her! Yay!!!

Take care

Roland D. Yeomans said...

I am so happy for Hart. And I am intrigued by the Kindness Project. We are drowning in a sea of self-focus it seems. It is a Twitter-World of look at me not "Let's help them." Sigh, Roland

Creepy Query Girl said...

Yay Hart! The kindness project sounds like such a fantastic endeavor. I'm going to be traveling the U.S. in July so I'm not sure what my schedule is going to look like just yet.

Susan Kaye Quinn said...

Ok, this looks too cool to pass up! And congrats to Tami!!

Sara {Rhapsody and Chaos} said...

Yay for your bloggy friend, I'll totally be checking out her book! And welcome to the project :)

Kelly Polark said...

Congrats to your friend! How awesome!

I enjoy kindness. Will possibly join in on the niceness!

Michael Di Gesu said...


What a terrific concept LB... I would love to take part the minute my life is my own. LOL.

Still stranded in FL. I have a few more weeks to finish up this design project... then back to CHI town.

I hope to see you when I drive through Indy...

Bear hugs,


Hart Johnson said...

Aw, man---THANK YOU!!!!!! I'm definitely feeling the love--my friends have all been AMAZING!

And the Kindness Project does sound very cool! I will be eager to see how it unfolds!

Alina Klein said...

Yay, Leigh! Welcome to TKP! And major congrats to Tami!

Oh, wow, this is such a great idea! I'll be excited to stop by here the second Wednesday of every month over the summer. And congrats to Tami!

Yay for Tami! I'm debating dumping blogger ... I'll wait until my temper cools to decide though. :)

Wow how wonderful to be 'officially' a best-selling author. Looking forward to your take on kindness next month.

Looking forward to your kindness post next month!!!

I've always thought that bloggers were some of the kindest people out there, at least the ones I've come to know over the past few years. I guess I'll give this project a try starting in July. The world can always use a little more kindness.

Congrats to your friend!

J.L. Campbell said...

Have fun on Wednesday.
