Thank you to everyone who came to Jester’s show last week when I was on. I very much appreciate the support. Unfortunately, with the room scrolling by and my kid’s messy writing, we’re not sure exactly WHO the winner from the show was. It’s either Catherine or Cissa, and I truthfully do not remember who all was in the chat beyond Marty, Hilly, Dave, Howard, and Karl. That’s because they either called in or we talked about them. Motley has a name written down that starts with a C. To me it looks kinda like Cathy or Catherine, but it could be Cissa. So Catherine and Cissa need to email me and I’ll send you a copy of The Wise Guy. That turned out to be a bit of a train wreck but I think giving them both a copy solves the mystery of the C name.
Since the chat winner drawing got a tad tweaked, I thought I’d draw two names here as well. Just to even everything out you know. There’s something to be said for symmetry. On this occasion it means more winners!
The winners of the comment drawing are Becky W. and Blu! Two C names, two B names. Don’t ask me how Motley did that. She’s really tickled with herself now. That’s a good thing. She was outraged that Dickiemaxx would have me tell her “For the Alliance!” yesterday. HEH. Now, she’s over it.
So, I had a great brunch with Hilly yesterday and had a chance to catch up with her. It’s been awhile since we had the chance to get together, but it’s funny how it always seems like it was just yesterday that I saw her. I finally had a chance to give her the shirt that Motley and I made her. It’s a Queen of Snark shirt. The design is simple but really cute… a very Snackiepoo kind of shirt. You can see the Queen of Snark line of stuff at our Cafepress store. The Twisted Sex Toy line is there too. I love taking inspiration from people I know whether it’s something that ends up in a book or on a coffee mug.
Now, I know I missed Marcus last week but the book thing sorta took precedence. I know, *gasp*! But I’m making up for it now with a double dose of Marcus and then the announcement of yet another contest! WOOT!
The man looks great in a pair of jeans whether it’s on the catwalk or the red carpet. Although, he really looks the best naked or in skimpy underwear. Rawr.
This week on March 5 Pink Petal Books releases Book One and Book Two of the Tales of the Darkworld. Shifting Winds and Hot Water are the first two book contracts I got. Having these two books come out is an even bigger thing for me than The Wise Guy was. I will again be having a release party on the Amethyst Winters Yahoo Group but it won’t be on the 5th because that’s a Thursday and I do have to work. On Saturday the 7th, we’ll be partying. So from the 5th to the 8th, all the comments on this blog are eligible to win a copy of Shifting Winds and a copy of Hot Water. Hot Water has a special dedication with some blogger names I know you will all recognize. Make sure you stop by during those 4 days and leave a comment so you can be in the drawing!
I’m off to work now. I wish it would stop being summer in the spring. The heat freaking sucks ass. Oh, well. I’m off to the icy A/C of the office. Winners, don’t forget to email me at winter at winterheart dot com! Have a great Monday everyone!
