So many of us in the US are celebrating Independence Day in various ways. Although my daughters are teenagers and one is going off to college soon (sniff) they are still into celebrating with family. We’re going to see Captain America II, then we’ll have our usual dinner ending with brownie sundaes topped with raspberries, vanilla ice cream and blueberries. My husband’s disability makes it harder than it’s worth to deal with the crowds at the local fireworks display, so we’ll watch the televised shows, hopping around based on who’s got the best music at the moment.
I’m also celebrating a milestone in my self-publishing journey. I recently passed 200,000 copies sold. 🙂
In celebration, I’m going to give away an ebook of any of my titles, from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Smashwords. You can check out the full list here.
To enter, tell us anything you’re celebrating, whether it’s Independence Day or anything else, and how. Enter between now and Thursday, July 10th. I’ll announce a winner on Friday, July 11th.
A happy 4th of July to everyone!
No crowds. No big get together. We are planning on just kicking back and staying safe. The Chihuahua has been upset and terrorized by the early celebrating. We’ll celebrate the holiday keeping him safe and as sane as humanly possible. (This is the most distressing holiday.) We will celebrate the no-more-fireworks day with a barbecue.)
Hi Vona. I enjoy fireworks but I do feel for those pets–and some people, too–who are disturbed by them. I hope you all come through OK and enjoy your barbecue tomorrow!
Celebrating July 4th with a BBQ
Congrats on the milestone!
Thanks and I hope you had a lovely day!
Celebrating with a day off from work, some gardening, steak and potato meal and then keeping the dogs from going nuts once the fireworks and gunfire start. I live in the boonies and the gunfire started last night. All I can hope is they run out of ammo and beer early tonight! Happy Fourth of July Everyone!
I hope you had a great day off–and that the dogs made it through OK.
Congratulations Elena on 200,000 copies sold. What a great accomplishment. We celebrated our daughter’s best friends wedding on the 4th.
Thanks so much, Maureen, and that sounds like a fun way to spend the 4th!
Wow! Huge congratulations, Elena!!!
