Chocolate Lasagna while we wait for everyone to arrive??
Thanks for coming by early! Would you liks some sugar cubes or wildflower honey for your tea?
Would you fellow writers care for some peanut butter? It tastes good with almost everything! Here are some Utz pretzels for dipping.
Now, I usually don't have stipulations for entering giveaways. The reason: first of all, my own pride. Its too easy to get caught up in statistics, it can be for me even though I know it doesn't mean anything. So I had to stop checking my stats. I know pride can be a big temptation for me to fall in, especially when it comes to my writing.
Why the requirement for this giveaway? I wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate my followers. You've been a wonderful support. You've had interesting feedback. And there's a few of you with whom I really feel I've connected at a deeper level.
Tomorrow, I'm going to be giving away 33 books. Its my birthday...you get the loot! And since I'm optimistic, I'm also going to make this a celebration for my followers as I am at 99...but I'm going to make it an early party.
I'm going to give away 3 sets of 11 books!!
