Odds, ends, thanks and Shaun!

Would you believe that I have some more thanking to do?

I do!

I must say that I've been all around lucky recently.

I don't normally win things. I like to throw my hat in the ring but usually I call it a donation and move on.

Recently, I won a few things and was given a few things, that are all awesome.

(Alas, the winning streak did not help with the last PowerBall.)

Mr. Milo James Fowler had a contest to win these great graphic novels behind Stormy! I was the lucky winner and he mailed them to me last month! So, SHINY! Thank you!

Ms. Andrea from Maybe it's Just Me... was kind enough to send me mix-tapes, except on CD, of her entire  Andrea's Angsty 80's A-Z posts from the 2013 Blogging from A to Z Challenge! I'm the proud owner of some awesome 80's angsty songs! Thank you!

Mr. Milo James Fowler had another contest during Alex J. Cavanaugh's Best/Worst Movie Remake Blogfest! I guessed correctly and won a copy of his short story, Beneath the Surface, which is included in Arcane II: Twenty-One Weird and Unsettling Stories. Thank you!


What else? Lots of good stuff coming up in June. Interviews, Blogfests, Book Reviews and more! It's gonna be a good month.


Will you be joining Tara, and me, for The Thrill of it All Blogfest? It's gonna be fun! You can share one of your own thrills, of any kind. Or, if you're shy, share one of your main character's thrills! Short and sweet! Did I mention there's prizes? Sign up!
