It’s time for a giveaway!

I know, I play fast and loose with grammar (specifically capitalization) on here. I apologize. I’m back on my laptop, but after a few months of not using it, I’m out of practice with the smaller keys, and let’s be honest – desktop keyboards are just better. Yes, only in my opinion. Whatever.

Anyway. It’s been two weeks, and it’s time for me to announce a winner of the book giveaway. Now then, I had two people comment on the post, and frankly, because it’s only two, I’ve decided to just gift them BOTH a copy of the book.

Anyway, I will be contact the winners privately and arranging to get the book to them (or, as it is more commonly known: figuring out how to do this).

Whether you participated or not, I appreciate everyone stopping by! I think I’m going to make it my weekend routine to visit blogs and catch up.

Now then, I’m going to devote some time to writing. I’ve ignored it lately, and that’s not good. ­čśŽ

I found too many plot holes in my last outline, so that’s the first thing I’m going to address.

30 Day Blog Challenge – Day twelve

Well, let’s not ruin tradition now… Head on over to Channillo to read yesterday’s post (And subscribe, and support a starving artist). Or, don’t. Seems to be having some problems. I’ll update the link if / when it starts working.

So, these questions are deceivingly simple. Deceiving because they are so hard to answer… Yesterday, I scrambled to find my ten favorite foods. Today, my favorite childhood book. And frankly, I don’t have just one. I have┬ámany┬áseries’ of books I call my favorite.

Nancy Drew, in all her incarnations, was a long time favorite. The Happy Hollisters, Trixie Belden… Oh, I loved them all. And the Borrowers. Let us not forget the Borrowers. I spent a lot of time at the library. A lot of happy time. ­čÖé

They all created within me a deep desire to read, one which has never diminished. And I cannot choose just one. Every book I read shaped my future, who I was to become, and therefore, they are all my favorite.

What about you? Can you narrow it down to just one?

A Book to Review

I have a ton of books. Really. I’ll bet almost every single person who bothers to read this particular blog does, too. Well, I started this blog with the intention of reading and reviewing one book per week. I’ve reviewed exactly one. What?? So, what’s a girl to do when she breaks her promise to herself?

Renew her commitment to said reviews, of course. It might not be one every week, but you will get at least two per month.

I have to start somewhere, though. And of all the books I’ve been given or bought, where do I start? Well, I have to start with the ones I was given with the specific intent of gaining a review. So, back to reading The Devil In Duke’s Clothes. To temper this, I am also going to read The Troublesome Apprentice by Liza O’Connor.
