Wait…WEDNESDAY?!?

It’s 4:33 AM EST and I have yet to sleep and doubt I will at all the night of the Strawberry Moon. I was monkeying around with my blog page, adding plugins and what have you, when I went to see how my Monday blog post was doing. I was startled to realize that, notContinue reading “Wait…WEDNESDAY?!?”

Another Faire-ly Successful Faire!

June 4th and 5th I road tripped it up to Charlotte, Michigan and the Eaton County Fairground for the Magical Realm Fantasy Faire. It’s a renaissance faire (much smaller than the Michigan Ren Faire in Holly) that has happened a couple years so far but apparently this was the most successful one yet! Saturday IContinue reading “Another Faire-ly Successful Faire!”

Success at the Faire!

Keychains: 17Earrings: 7Books: 44Signs: 1 This year for Mother’s Day weekend I drove to Marshall, Michigan to sell my book for a second time at the Royal Stagg Renaissance Faire! Above are the figures from a weekend of sales, knocking last year’s numbers out of the park. If you’re wondering about the non-book items, whenContinue reading “Success at the Faire!”

The Itinerary!

As a reminder from my post a few weeks back I will be selling at three (so far) events this summer. They are: I’m very excited to meet anyone and everyone who can come out on one of those weekends! Would love to hear your thoughts on the book, sign a copy, and give youContinue reading “The Itinerary!”

Happy Pi Day!

Today we celebrate a two-fold holiday, honoring both mouthwatering pastry and math alike. Yesterday was also a holiday, though it really only has meaning if, like myself, Detroit is near and dear to your heart. For those who aren’t in the know, yesterday was 313 day! 313 is the area code in Detroit so it’sContinue reading “Happy Pi Day!”

Summer of Sales!

If you’ve been with me since the beginning, or at least since last spring, you’ll remember I had a ball (and made a good chunk of change) at the Royal Stagg Renaissance Festival in Marshall, Michigan last year. Well I signed up and will be there May 7th and 8th! And THIS time, I’ll haveContinue reading “Summer of Sales!”

Goodbye February – Hello National Reading Month!

Of the numerous books read to me as a child, the above is easily favored above the rest. I have a pair of my mother’s earrings that depict a scene, I have plans to get a reference to the story tattooed on my person, and I very much plan to read it to my childrenContinue reading “Goodbye February – Hello National Reading Month!”

Hello Nepal!

One of the many fun features tied into the running of a blog is that I can see where people are tuning in from. This doesn’t apply to those subscribed to my newsletter and get it in their e-mail but for people who actually go to http://www.emmakhoury.com they pop up on this little map. IContinue reading “Hello Nepal!”

Took A Beat – And Right Back To It

Well, it finally happened. After months of checking the Delta app to watch the number of days till Check-In dwindle down to zero, I finally got my vacation! I stayed with my parents in Naples and achieved my ultimate goal: relaxation. I have been wound up so tight these past few months that this reprieveContinue reading “Took A Beat – And Right Back To It”

Crunch & Noom & Oculus: Oh My!

Crunch, Noom and Oculus are going to be things I (hopefully) mention quite a bit moving forward. For those unfamiliar, Crunch Fitness is a gym franchise and Noom is a habit tracking app. Oculus I’ll explain in a bit. I plan on utilizing all three to attain a healthier self in 2022. I went toContinue reading “Crunch & Noom & Oculus: Oh My!”
