“Make a pact with yourself today to not be defined by your past. Sometimes the greatest thing to come out of all your hard work isn't what you get for it, but what you become for it.”
- Steve Maraboli
"Oh, OK. How did that stone come to be in this village?" Luke asked. "Who brought it here?”
"She did," Mr. Altherr said, looking at the stone.
"She. The daughter of Akhenaten."
"What? As in she herself? How could she have come this far from Egypt? Thousands of years ago? In person?" Luke looked at Mr. Altherr with a surprised look.
"Have you ever heard of the legend of Scota?"
"Erm… no…" Kaylee looked at Luke. "Have you?"
"No. Who was Scota?"
"She was a queen," again Mr. Altherr pointed at the stone, "There is an old story how the daughter of an Egyptian pharaoh escaped unrest in the land and travelled to Scotland or Ireland or both. There is even a tomb in Ireland that could be hers. Some stories say that she and her descendants stayed in the Iberian Peninsula for a while but eventually part of their group sailed to Ireland. According to the legend, they brought with them a sacred stone that eventually made its way to Scotland, and then to England. And the kings of Scotland were crowned on that stone. When England conquered Scotland, the stone was taken to England and even today the monarchs are crowned on St. Edward's Chair with a slot underneath to hold that stone."
"I have heard of the stone," Luke said. "The Stone of Scone. I never knew it had anything to do with ancient Egypt!"

I sell my books directly too - the ebooks are cheap to buy and the big e-stores don't share much to the author. So I have downloaded my ebooks to Payhip - they don't take commission and I get more to pay for my editor, proofreader and cover designer. All of whom are one-woman businesses themselves. (You get the ebook in your preferred e-reader format.)
If you prefer to write a short happy note each day, I have created planners for this effect. You can write your daily happiness in the squares of the weekly spread - and plan future happiness using the monthly pages. There are even happy (repositionable) stickers included in the planner.
