Good-bye 20s, Hello 30s!

NeverChanges

Today I leave my 20s behind for the exciting adventure of being in my 30s. A lot of people cringe at the idea of the ol’ birthday ticker turning two digits instead of just the usual one. Not me. I love birthdays. It’ll be a little weird to write 3- instead of 2-, but so is writing dates on checks the first couple of weeks every new year.

AchievemntUnlocked-Birthday

And the day job was kind enough to give me the day off for my birthday. Pretty cool. Here’s the agenda for the day:

  • Ice skating at the Frog Pond (got my beginner’s hockey league on Monday, so might as well get a skate in first so I don’t look too foolish)
  • Dinner and entertainment at Medieval Manor with friends
  • Post-show/dinner drinks at the Black Rose

Stoked. And if I’m in “proper condition” there’s a big fencing practice tomorrow in Maine I’m hoping to hit up.

Birthday Wishes

If you’re wondering how you can make my first day in my 30s a memorable one, here’s two simple and super-cheap ideas:

  • Pick up any copies of the Jake Hawking short adventures you haven’t read yet. At less than a buck, it’s win-win, really. Think of it as getting me an inexpensive gift that I love, and in return you get an action-filled grab bag:

    AMAZON
    B&N
    SMASHWORDS

  • Leave a review on Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, or Goodreads. Every little review adds up, helps convince other potential readers to pick up a copy, and helps me promote the stories on email lists that have a review number requirement.

Here’s to another decade of swashbuckling and life! Sláinte!

    Happy Birthday, I can ALMOST remember that far back. You tend to remember special events. My 21st was on KP! Turned 80 last year and that was a double-digit shock. Got a Kindle for that one.
    Here’s to a long happy life and lots of successful writing!
