I'm also happy because we had such a great response to our April Easter Egg Hunt.
We appreciate everyone who follows our blog. We'd like to break 100 this month on Followers, and you can help us achieve that.
See on the left sidebar where it says "We Love Our Blog Followers?"
Do us a favor and click Follow and fill out the little form that opens. Then your tiny picture will pop up so we can see your smiling face. Or your dog's smiling face since a lot of people use their pet's photo.
Making each month's book, author, and reader promotion better than the last is difficult, but I think we may have done it with May's Celebration of Moms, Soldiers, and First Responders.
There is no better month to celebrate Moms since Mother's Day is this month. By the same token, there's no better month to celebrate the Heroes and She-roes of our world than May, the month in which we celebrate Memorial Day in the U.S.
We salute and honor all of the Heroes and She-roes, from our precious Moms to:
the men and women of the Armed Forces, active duty and retired, who sacrifice and often pay a high price for defending our freedom
the police who have a daunting job and are in the line of fire on a daily basis
the firefighters who put themselves in harm's way to protect lives and property.
the Emergency Medical teams who race to save lives, and the Emergency Room Doctors and Nurses all across the world.
Heroes and She-roes Celebration
Maya Angelou, an unofficial Poet Laureate of America, may have been the first to refer to women as She-roes rather than as heroines. I like the word Shero because it sounds as if it should be the female counterpart of hero. Heroine always makes me think of leading ladies in novels and movies.

I love my Kindle because it can be read in bright sunlight, and the battery stays charged for days.
Maybe we should give away a Kindle on a monthly promotion.
Do you think readers would like that? I asked a lot of questions so give me some answers in Comments.
