It’s the Monday after Thanksgiving and the world seems like a strange place. Probably because other than Turkey day, I spent nearly my entire 5-day weekend in sweats or pajamas. Ahh, it was wonderful! I didn’t even crack open my laptop except to order pizza. Gotta keep my priorities straight. I didn’t write this weekend even though it’s what I’d planned. Nope, I read. And read some more. And read even more. And it was fabulous!
But I also seem to have caught a cold. Joy. Nothing worse than trying to sleep but you can’t because you can hear yourself breathing, hear the congestion in your chest and feel the post-nasal drip. Ugh. What a nightmare, but that’s okay. It’ll pass and I can use the foggy-headedness to write. Hey, I take every advantage I can.
Now I know y’all aren’t really here to find out about my cold, my pajamas or how much cake I ate while I was off. Y’all want to know who won the 20 prize grand prize of the 1,000 blog post giveaway. Right? Well here are the winners:
Grand prize – all twenty items goes to…
The winner of the 2nd Nikki Duncan and a copy of Cynthia Eden’s Christmas book is…
And the following people each won a copy of Cynthia Eden’s Christmas book:
JoAnna Halpin Becker
Patrica Moran Arnold
Paula Micahella Bulos
I’ll contact everyone and let you know what you need to do.
I want to thank all of the authors who participated in the giveaway yet again. I couldn’t have come up with such an awesome prize pack on my own. Secondly, I’d like to thank everyone who stopped by to visit my blog throughout the years. I hope to do a lot of fun things in the future with even more giveaways. Maybe not as epic as this one was, but it’ll still be awesome!
Oh and tomorrow I’m taking part in a sweet Sci-Fi blog hop, so stop by to enter!
One has nothing to do with the other. I just thought I’d smash all of today’s post into one title.
Before we get to the antics of Fat Cat, I’d like to announce the two giveaway winners I picked both for the Fan Appreciation Giveaway and the winner from my blog during the Six-Pack Stud-a-thon Blog hop.
First, for the Fan Appreciation Giveaway, the random fan I picked was: Tiffany Lynn Spence! Tiffany won a Danica Avet T-shirt. For those of you on the fan page (and those who are interested in future giveaways), I’ll be holding these fan appreciation giveaways every month so be sure to like my fan page!
Second, the winner of the Six-Pack Stud-a-Thon Blog hop,who’ll get a Danica Avet T-shirt and their choice of a book from my backlist, is….Cynderella Duncan!
Congrats ladies, I’ll be contacting you later today to arrange the shipments and all that mess.
Now on to Fat Cat. I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but my showers are no longer private. If she believes I’m even thinking of going to shower, she runs into the bathroom ahead of me to observe these strange human traditions. So what, right? Most cats do that. Dogs too. They act as though there’s a secondary exit in the bathroom and if they aren’t there to watch you, you’ll sneak out of the house.
Fat Cat takes it a step further. This morning as I stepped out of the shower, I caught her licking the cabinet. Just a few little licks as though she was like “hm, pressed wood. Minty with a hint of oak”. Weird cat. Did I mention too that the second I go to my room to change out of my work clothes she throws herself on the ground in front of me like a beached whale and rolls around? I keep expecting her to start saying, “roll, roll in ze hay!”
