Short & Sweet

How about a quickie??!!  *Grin*  That's what today's post is going to be.  Just gotta take care of some business and I'm outta here to work on my WIP.

First things first.  Thank you for all the comments about my Love at First Sight Blogfest entry.  Two things stood out...everybody enjoyed reading a romantic scene from a male POV...and quite a few of you insisted that I take it down off the shelf.  Believe me when I say the book has issues, the biggest being that its 40,000 words too long for a first time author.  It will see the day of light at some point though, it's that personal to me.

My second piece of business is that two of my favorite bloggers; Elana Johnson and Shelli at Market My Words are teaming up to put on a series of contest that offer serious prizes.  If you're not already a follower of theirs, go by and check it out.

Finally, I am humbled once again.  Gina at A Muse in My Pocket and Kellie at Women's Life Link have both singled me out for the LOVE LINK.  I was overcome by Warm Fuzzies after I read what they said about me.  Additionally, Kimberly Franklin at Confessions: The Secret Life of a Writer blessed me with the Picasso Award.  I don't have the time needed to do justice for both of these recognitions right now, but I will hold onto my duty and pay it forward sometime in the near future.  Thank you Gina, Kellie & Kimberly...really!

That's version of a drive-by blog posting.  :)  Happy hump day!!
