Today was possibly the most awesome day ever. I will explain why in a convenient-to-follow numbered list.
- First, several friends and I went to a local micro-brewery, took a tour complete with samples, and then went for sushi.
- Then I got home and discovered that fellow WordPress blogger Misha Burnett had mentioned my book in his latest blog post in a very flattering manner.
- Then I discovered that fellow WordPress blogger J.R. Wolfe had finished reading my book and posted a glowing review on Amazon.com.
- And to top it all off, Celeste DeWolfe sent me my first ever piece of fan art. And it’s gorgeous!!!
When I first started writing, I always thought the coolest part about being an author must be getting fan art — seeing how other people envision your characters, and watching them brought to life. And now Celeste has fulfilled that lifelong dream of mine, and I’m beyond ecstatic. Woooo!!!
I’m getting too excited. Let’s all take a deep, calming breath and move on to …
The Magnet Giveaway!!!
I decided to record the name-drawing event for posterity because, heck, why not, so here is Vlog #6 — Magnet Giveaway + The Book is Here! ((to just see who the winners are, skip down to below the video))
As you discovered in that super exciting video, the winners of the magnet giveaway are:
Congratulations, my magnetic friends! (Get it? Magnetic? Hehehe …) I will attempt to contact you tomorrow to acquire your postal addresses for mailing purposes, but if you feel like dropping me a line at email@example.com and letting me know your addresses, that saves me a step!
So, most awesome day ever? Possibly. It’s definitely in the running. Thanks to everyone who participated in the giveaway, and thanks especially to the personages mentioned above for supporting/enjoying Imminent Danger!!!
