Thank you to all who entered. I didn't get to announce the winner at noon since we were on the road, and traffic between Waco and Austin in particular was a nightmare. Random.org was used to pick the winner, and congratulations go out to Carol Anne there :D I've already sent you the book, Carol, and hope you enjoy it.
Now, y'all know there's been a lot of bad things happening for my family lately, and I was trying to think it's not just us, but you know, I sure hope no one else is having this kind of stuff piled on. Yesterday, the hubs lost his job-- it's more complicated than just that, and I can't really get into it, but that means all contests that will cost me financially are going to have to go on hold until he's at a new job and earning commissions. Shouldn't take long, but in the meantime, we'll be struggling and getting behind in bills, so we'll have to catch up there, too.
And I'm not complaining. It sucks, but it will pass. I do hate to pause the contests, but that's necessary at this time. Free things, like copies of my new releases when they come out, will still happen.
I always believe that when there's bad shit, you need to remember the good, too. So that's easy, really. There are all the amazing people I've met through my writing, and y'all here at the blog have, in particular, been incredibly kind and uplifting.
There's my family, all of whom make each day brighter.
And PNut, who cuddles all the time.
Plus, there's fudge, a lot of it.
And stories to write, books to read, roses to smell. So many good things, and great people.
Happy Saturday to y'all <3
