A shiny new contest, a winner, and a question!
Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Yaaawwwwn! I slept to nearly 9 AM this morning! That’s a very late start for me. But I feel so refreshed—a good thing since I have to plow into my next Samhain book this week, the next Delta Heat story! While I’m writing that story, I’ll be firming up plans for the Montlake book so I can tear into it soon. So much work and only me to do it. I wouldn’t want it any way else.

So, before I tell you about my new contest, let’s wrap up the last one!

The winner of the Texas Two-Step Grab Bag is…Mary Preston! Mary, email me to arrange delivery of your prize—and congrats!

The Glass Art Pendant Contest

What can you win?
This lovely fused glass art pendant. I’m not sure the photo does it justice, because it darkens it, but it’s a deep blood red with an iridescent peacock inset and a small flower-like inset above it. It measures approx. 1 1/2 ” long and 1″ wide. An artist friend of mine makes them, and I have been collecting. Start your collection now!


How can you win it?

Post a comment on any blog posting from today until the contest ends. Each entry counts as another chance to win!

This contest ends in two weeks, May 15th!!

Just to give you something to talk about today—here’s a question…

If you could get back one thing that was either lost or destroyed, what would it be?

    Hi! Congrats Mary! Woot! And beautiful pendant Delilah. I can see why you collect them. Its gorgeous! I have two things id want if i could have them. My mom had a shirt from when she was little that used to belong to her aunt. She died young. The shirt still had her perfume on it and was zipped in a plastic bag. My mom treasured it. But my dads sister was changing her kids diaper and used the shirt to wipe. My mom was so distraught. It was the last thing she had of hers. My aunt did it on purpose. And the other thing, my dad had a big coin collection that came from his grandpa. My parents let my cousins move in because they had know where to go and they stole the coins and used the coins at the gas station. My dad wasnt able to get any of them back. :( Those two things id love to get back and give to my parents.

    I’d get back my artwork from when I was a teenager. When I left home to get married against my family’s wishes my father burned the lot :( There was stuff there that I have been unable to reproduce in all the years since :(

    I wish I could get more time with my grandparents to organize all of the writing they left me. They collected papers and stories from their lives and now I have to try to organize their stories on my own.

    THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!! Email sent.

    The pendant is gorgeous. In all the moving over the years I lost my silver Christening cup. It was precious because of who gave it to me.

    I would want to get back time with my mother. She passed away in January and I feel I missed out on opportunities to spend time with her before she passed away.

    Getting my dad back for even one minute would be fine, since he passed away suddenly 2 years ago just before Thanksgiving dinner. I miss his problem solving and ease he had in fix-up talent. My kids brought him quite a number of broken items and expected his magic to bring them back to life.

    Wow, this is a tough question for me to answer, there are a few things I could list….

    I would want my ability to trust wholeheartedly back.
