Loot!

If you remember from my post last week, I won MommaSaid's Housewife Award. I'd not bring it up again, except that my goodies came in the mail yesterday!

Seriously, it's probably one of the only certificates I've gotten as an adult, and who can go wrong with a FREE paperback? The book is Murder Takes the Cake, a cozy mystery by Gayle Trent. And as coincidence would have it, my bloggy buddy Joanne interviewed Gayle about the book a few weeks ago for Women on Writing. Check it out!

Thanks to Jen Singer and MommaSaid. And kudos to Joanne, as well, for such a stellar author interview. Can't wait to read the book!

Nice gift there! I think you'll enjoy Gayle's book, it's got an interesting concept behind it. She was a pleasure to host, too. And thanks for the kind words, Janna! Enjoy the read, maybe sneak in a little quiet time with it over the holiday weekend.

Don't you just love these giveaways!! Just this a.m. I heard back from an author whose book I won a while back, and if it weren't that I am writing on deadline, I would have devoured it in one sitting, it's that good. The amazing thing was, the author was contacting little me!

Congrats, Janna!! Enjoy your prizes.

Thanks, everyone! Sorry not to have commented back sooner. Was gone all day yesterday, and found upon my return our internet was down. A long call with a nearly-incompetant ISP associate got the issue figured out twenty minutes ago, but now I have so much other catching up to do, I can't comment individually. But thanks for your support and excitement!
