I'd Like to Thank the Academy

Thank you, Sandra! Say hello to the Scottish ghosts for me--some of them are probably relatives of mine.

This award comes with certain responsibilities, although what they are exactly seems a bit unclear. As it travels from blog to blog, the list changes.

1) thank the bestower--check.

2) Say a little about myself:

My book MINDER comes out in June, and I want everyone on the planet to buy it, read it, and love it.

3) nominate 7 or 10 or 15 worthy blogs

And the nominees are...
fairyhedgehog
steph the bookworm
ann foxlee
YA Book Nerd
Writing is a Blessing
Writer's Cramps
Stepping into Fantasy
Kiersten Writes
Substitute Teacher's Saga
In Sight of the Crazies
Hatshepsut
Dangerous with a Pen
Combreviations
Fiction Groupie
A Paperback Writer

OK, I went with 15. You don't have to.

Some of you may be more funny or edgy than what is considered traditionally beautiful, but I'm a gruff old mama bear from New England, so that works for me. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and whatnot. Check 'em out; they're worth reading.

I also didn't list some of the online reviewers, since you'll be getting copies of MINDER in the next month or so, and I didn't want to be a suck-up.

Although I have no problem with people sucking up to me, and I hope to one day be in a position to gracefully accept sycophancy. I plan to give a small, indulgent smile and a regal wave of the back of my hand.

Oh, and let me mention the Brenda Novak auction that starts in May.

First, thanks so much for the award. It means so much. And two, I had no idea your book was coming out! I've got to pay more attention. Congrats to you girl. You should be less disgruntled now.
:-)Thanks so much for stopping by my site today. Make sure to stop in on April 30 for your chance to win some great books. Talk to you later. I've got to check out your MINDER pages.
