This is the official release date for the paperback of my new novel, Bird in Hand. To celebrate, I wrote about writing, life, and the pursuit of happiness for Gretchen Rubin’s wonderful blog, The Happiness Project. One of my favorite questions she asked was, “What’s a simple activity that consistently makes you happier?” (Long-time readers of this blog can probably guess my answer.)
I’m also launching a redesign of my website today, and even of this blog, ditching my old WordPress URL and finally getting a grown-up domain name of my own. You can still find me at this address, but it’s a little swankier over there.
I’m really happy that my paperback is out in the world. (I always feel a little twinge about asking people to cough up money for a hardcover.) I’m delighted with my website, which was designed by the extraordinarily patient and good-humored Steffen Rasile of sra design studios. And I’m so pleased that my blog finally has a permanent home.
One of the best things I’ve learned from Gretchen is to “grab those moments of happiness as they wing by.” So here I am, grabbing the moment. And doing a little happy dance.
