A little #Surprise this weekend…

I was laid up in bed all day yesterday because I pulled my left flank and hip muscles on Saturday at the gym. Adulting and life should come with a disclaimer that doing squats after the age of 55 is not a wise choice.

Anyhoo.

As I was working in bed 

I got an email that just about shot me off the mattress. Apparently, I am a FINALIST in the 2018 HOLT MEDALLION CONTEST in the Long Contemporary category for my book COOKING WITH KANDY.

YOWZA!

If you scroll down to the Long Contemporary category you’ll see my name. My real name. Apparently, I entered under my real one, not my pen one. Le Sigh….

Anyway – YAY!!! Cooking with Kandy won a bunch of awards before it was published and this is the first time I’ve entered it in anything since it’s been published, so this is uber-thrilling.

I’ll keep you updated once the winners are announced. All body parts are crossed for this one, peeps!

Looking for me? Here I am: Tweet Me//Read Me// Visit Me//Picture Me//Pin Me//Friend Me//Google+Me// Triber// Book Me

and one last shameless plug: Check out my new AUDIOBOOK version of 3 WISHES, available now at Audible // Itunes // and Amazon.

#GoddessFishBlogTour Final Day!!!

So yesterday was a bit of a kerfuffle- the blogger who was going to host me for the day put up the post really late so I never got a chance to publicize it. Here it is now.  Brooke Blogs. But never fear – I’ve got  2 great stops today ( one of them at one of my fav websites, Long and Short Reviews!) Stop by Archaeolibrarian – I Dig Good Books for a little discussion and then Long and Short Reviews (Yippie). And since this is the last day of my tour ( and boy, am I tired!!!) make sure you’ve visited all the other stops and clicked on the rafflecopter for a chance at that $50 Amazon gc!

Thanks to all the remarkable and wonderful hosts this past month. The reviews have been wonderful and all the stops memorable. I simply adore Goddess Fish Promotions.

#GoddessFishBlogtour Day 17…

Hey kids!! We’re still plodding along on the tour. Today I’m putting on my flying wings because I’m in two place at once again. First, I’m stopping at my dear writing friend Joanne Guidoccio’s blog. Joanne and I go waaaaaay back at the Wild Rose Press. In addition to having a great blog with timely topics and fab guests, she’s an awesome cozy mystery writer and a one-click author for me!. Then I’m hopping over to XOXO Book Blog talking about, well, the book! Stop by, leave love and take a chance in that $50 Amazon gc that’s going to be awarded at the end of the tour ( which is this friday!!!)

#GoddessFishBlogTour Week 3 Ends with a bang!

I’m having a hard time realizing that this is the end of the third week of my tour already. You know what that means ( aside from I’m tired! hee hee) It means I have today and then 5 more days before this is over!! Don’t worry, though. Next week there are 3 days where I have 2-fer stops so that’s still a lot of the cyberverse bloggersphere to cover. Today I’m over at Straight from the Library. Stop by and leave me some love. And don’t forget that rafflecopter chance while you visit me.
