Braving the Snowman

Valentina loves the snow and all the fun that goes along with it, silly snowmen in funny hats.

And watching kookoo dogs named Clare who don't understand and bark at flower arms and floating chip bags. 


 I, on the other hand hate the snow--and the cold--and the wet and the--yuk! Blah, I'd rather do my taxes.  Moan, groan. But really wish I was knitting.

Bunny Jumble


I don't know why I'm having such a hard time posting to my blog. I think I'm afraid. Afraid it's not interesting enough, afraid of sticking my beak out and falling flat on my face. Afraid, afraid, afraid. A big fat chicken, that's what I am. Well, at the risk of sounding boring I think I'll talk a bit about what I've been doing. 

I got my Etsy shop up, although the shelves are bare. Knitting is time comsuming. But the banner's cute.

I also managed to create an Amazon Bookstore for my website. Meaning a person can purchase books from Amazon through it.


I added my Redbubble Shop to the greeting cards section of my website. I'm waiting for the nice weather to take more photos. 

I joined a few groups on LinkedIn to see if I can find people who enjoy the same things I do. I'm feeling a little lost at the moment, sort of like my bunny jumble up there. And it's down to days to see if I made it through to round 2 of the novel writing contest. That's about it for now, little Clare needs a run in the woods (so do I).

CONTEST MANUSCRIPT SECURED



                    
Here's a beautiful image of Niagara Falls I plucked from the internet. I would love to have plastered my book title across the front but that wouldn't be right, for many reasons. I would also love to include my submission pitch to this post, not to mention my excerpt, just for the sheer delight that somebody might read it, like it and tell me so. But since the whole thing's a big secret for the judging, I can't say a word. Though I've already blabbed my book title half way across the internet, I'm sure nobody'll notice. The odds of anybody ever connecting me to my submission is highly unlikely. The only thing I can safely say about my YA novel is:

XXXXX is a darkly comic story that challenges the bonds of family loyalty, love and power. With a knack for the zany, XXXXX transports the reader into an action-packed adventure they won’t soon forget, a hilarious farce sure to capture imaginations and funny bones alike.

Pretty generic, I think I'm safe.

Prayer for the day:
Oh great universal mother (cause I know you're a woman therefore sacrificial lambs do not apply) please deliver me into the loving arms of round two heaven. Amen.
