My Book Baby is Turning One!


On September 18, 2012 my first print book — "You Can Buy Happiness (and it’s Cheap)" — was released into the world! It’s hard to believe that my book has been circulating in bookstores, libraries, and on e-readers for the last year.

I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to write my book and to work with such an amazing publisher! I’m also thankful that I had the opportunity to meet readers on my tiny book tour last year. In addition to meeting readers in person, I’ve been so touched by the emails and thank you cards I’ve received over the last year. Knowing that my book impacted folks in a positive way made the writing process worth it.

To celebrate the one-year anniversary, I decided to giveaway three packages:

1. A Writing Package, which includes:

2. A Photography Package, which includes:

3. A Care-Package, which includes:

Also, my publisher — New World Library — will send each winner a copy of "Bouncing Back" by Linda Graham and "Let it Shine” by John Perlin. Both books are fantastic!

To enter the giveaway:

  • Fill in this sentence,  “Happiness is . . . “, in the comments field at the bottom of this post.
  • Make sure you leave your email address in the comment form. If you win one of the packages, I need a way to contact you.
  • The giveaway closes on September 30th at 11am PST. I will announce the winners on October 1, 2013.
  • You can’t choose what package you will win. Three winners will be chosen using Random.org.

E-book sale

In addition to the giveaway, my ebooks will be on sale for the rest of September. You can buy Smalltopia: A Practical Guide to Working for Yourself and Go Small & Be Happy: A Little Book of Essays for $1.99.

Thank you for reading my blog and book. I couldn’t do this work without your support!

Be well,
