Maguire's Corner


4 great prizes for 4 awesome winners!

1. Amazon Gift Card - C.M. Brown - A short passage from her WIP, Forces of Mist. I'm SO ready for more! Thank you, C.M. Brown!

2. Copy of Maguire's Corner - Christine Rains - Her story about the actual first dollar she made publishing a story about alien pet care. I love this story, and it's true! Thank you, Christine Rains!

3. Pop Travel ARC - Huntress/CD Coffelt - Excerpt from her current WIP, book two of The Magic Withheld. Very cool scene. Thank you, Huntress!

4. Original art from Tara Tyler - Beverly Fox -  Poem, His Sweet Breath. Epic love poem. Thank you, Beverly Fox!


Tara, graciously, had an honorable mention for everyone in the fest! She's cool like that! I'm, well, lazy, and didn't have as many, but I did have a few. 

Angela Brown submitted an excerpt from her WIP, They All Fall Down. I'm hooked already and can't wait to read what happens next in this book! Thank you, Angela Brown!

Alex J. Cavanaugh wrote about Mini-Alex's first rock concert! ROCK ON! Thank you, Alex!

M. Pax wrote about volunteering at an observatory. So cool that she still gets a thrill when she re-discovers the universe from a telescope. Thank you, M. Pax!

and last but not least

Suzanne W. Skeels, aka my Mom/editor/mentor/sounding board/friend, wrote some sappy piece about her exciting life of thrills and then about having me.

Even though she made it sound like she gave birth to me at 66, I still thinks its a great story. Duh, it stars me!

Her prize? She gets to babysit the seven year old tonight while I stand in the rain, again, at carnival. She's a trooper! Thanks, Mom!


So, folks, that about wraps it up! Thank you! Have a great weekend! Enjoy some thrills! Write! Be happy! See you on Monday!


  1. Congrats to all the winners! I had a great time reading all the posts. :)

  2. Congratulations to the winners! And thank you for mentioning Mini-Alex. You know I deliberated hard over my entry.
    Your mom's entry was really sweet although I'm not sure her prize is really a prize...

  3. I agree with Alex, perhaps I got the booby prize!!!!
    Congratulations to winners and non-winners; it was fun posting with you.
    And I certainly hope, if you look at sentence construction, that I put in enough commas that it doesn't seem like I had Heather at 66. What a laugh that would be.

  4. Your mother is a blogger and she wrote something about you? That is so sweet.

  5. Yay! Thank you so very much! It was an awesome blogfest. :) Have a great weekend.

  6. Lots of stuff here! Congrats to the winners. I'm looking forward to reading Maguire's Corner. My reading time is zilch these days, so I hope to get to it before too long.

  7. Congrats to the winners... Sounds like it was a huge success:)

  8. That's so sweet that your mom participated! I had a great time reading all of the entries :)

  9. Sorry I missed this! Been missing a lot of things lately, though. :(

  10. Wow! Congrats to the winners - they got such great prizes. Thanks to Tara and Heather for being so awesome! :-)

  11. Sounds like a successful blogfest to me:)
