So Etsy found this lovely dress for me this month. This is from a shop called The Vintage Jesus.

This same model is in several dresses in this shop. And the hilarious thing is that he looks so thrilled to be showing off his lovely dresses. All the male models in the shop look pretty miserable, actually.

And guess how much the vintage Jesus wants for this dress? 150 bucks. And that's one of the cheaper ones.

So I urge you to buy my pride shirt (link in comments). Just think ... you can buy one for yourself and one for four of your friends for the same price as one of these lovely dresses from The Vintage Jesus shop.

This Womens Dresses item by thevintagejesus has 31 favorites from Etsy shoppers. Ships from Mexico. Listed on Feb 18, 2024

I heard it was pride month next month and I was like... Seriously? Wasn't it just pride month five minutes ago? It seems like we live in a perpetual pride month now. So I made my own pride shirt. Link in comments if any of you want one--they are launch sale--25% off for one week.

The longer story:
THE BEST LAID PLANS OF MICE AND MEN
This was going to be my first launch done right. I made all my A+ content. I published the ebook a few days early to get some reviews of verified-purchased books. I planned for the paperback to go live two days before Thanksgiving so it would get help from Black Friday traffic. And I had a good advertising budget.

And then? The book got stuck in publishing mode at Amazon. I had never had that happen before. I didn't know it was a thing. But apparently ... it's a thing. I went back and forth with Amazon at least twenty times. They kept telling me they had no way of unsticking it. They finally told me to just buy a new ISBN and publish the book again.

And then, just as mysteriously it got stuck, it was unstuck.

All this to say: God does what he wants to do. We plan and work as we should, but God decides how much fruit to give to any work and when to give it. And that's supremely comforting. Because God always knows best and God always does right.

And now he has seen fit to let this one be published. Just in time for Christmas.

This is such a fun book. It's good on so many levels. There's a great relationship between Pete and his mother. The little sister just watches her big brother through the whole book and learns from him as little sisters always do. The illustrations are so adorable (I just love that one little bare foot). And the book is hilarious which children's books ought to be if all possible.

So ... buy it. You'll like it.
