That's me, parking my bike in the local field and jumping for joy... Okay, maybe not, but it should be me. First off, I won a competition, yay! Kindle Users Forum are approaching their first anniversary, and asked for a couple of lines from users as to why we love them. I decided to be cheeky and do a little poem, and I won! I had a choice of book vouchers, cold, hard cash, or a week's free advertising - and as it's early days for my book, I decided it had to be the advertising. So from 12 noon today for one week, my book gets displayed on the top-right hand corner on their forums (on rotation with a couple of others). I'll post back to let you know if it's effective or not.
Secondly, I was nominated for a blog award by fellow blogger Andrew Leon over at StrangePegs. (I recommend you pop over and have a look at his latest post The Wrong Answer to the Right Question - even if he didn't fully agree with my comment :P) My first ever blog award!! And it's all down to my Magic Eyes... I have a great one lined up for Friday, by the way.
Now I have to pick some winners myself. I don't want to rush this, so I will give myself to the end of the week to find the most-deserving blogs, (IMO). It's going to be hard, because all the ones I follow look good to me!
Last, but not least, I got my first ever review from an actual review site today. The Novel Student accepted my book, and I held my breath waiting for the result, because I know she's very honest. But she gave me four stars and a great review, so now I'm buzzing!!!
Well, that's all for now. Will be back on Friday with a Magic Eye for ya, and my blog award choices.
