My Major Award – FRAGILE

I often enter book giveaways, and it’s astounding how often I win! Naturally, this makes me very happy.

My most recent win was CROSS-STITCH BEFORE DYING: AN EMBROIDERY MYSTERY by Amanda Lee (aka Gayle Trent), one of my fellow posters at Fatal Foodies. You should all buy the book! It gots a dog in it!

It also involves “a Bollywood-style production.” and I do love me some Bollywood style. If you don’t know what that means, watch this send-up by the guys and gals of The Guild, which I also recommend.

You’re welcome.

So ANYWAY, I emailed Gayle my snail mail address so she could send me my major award, and we exchanged some Christmas Story references, naturally.

When the book arrived, it was accompanied by this, which I hate to insult the book by saying this was even better than getting the book, but it IS the most totally awesome Major Award anybody ever unexpectedly sent me:

majorawardTHAT is indescribably beautiful!

Finally, for something completely different, spend a few hours at Philosophy Bro, where you’ll learn more about philosophy and sanity than you ever thought possible. Philosophy AND sanity! Both! Many, many thinks thanks to Michael Williams for pointing me to the site.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character wins an award that is far different than what the character expects.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Did you notice the “rendering” was signed “Picasso”? That’s why it doesn’t look just like the one in the movie. It’s conceptual. 😀 I LOVED the video! How cute! Now I must find out more about The Guild.
