So...Is This Mess Mine?

My plan the day after DD Week ended was to do a nice little wrap up, announce the giveaway winners, and basically tidy up around the place. Instead I left for the Authors After Dark Conference in Savannah. I got back yesterday, and it felt like the morning after a party, when you look around your house and see half empty wine glasses filled with dead fruit flies, bowls of chip crumbs, strangers passed out on your couch, etc.

So I'm going to start the housekeeping process.

First of all, thank you to everyone who helped with DD Week. I loved hosting so many fun guests, and I appreciated people's thoughtful comments. I'm especially glad to have enjoyed DD Week, because I thought Shark Week was abysmal this year. Too many megalodons.

The winners of the giveaways last week were:

Cara Bristol: Renee
Fabian Black: Yvette
Pauline Allan: Rosie
Lori Toland: Marie
Kay Berrisford: Cynthia
Lisa Henry: Chris


The posts from DD Week will be archived on the Interviews page of the blog, along with the excerpts and DD information.

My plan for the next few days is to share a little of what I learned at Authors After Dark. And by "what I learned" I mean "pictures of little plastic monkeys doing dirty things to each other." There are already some pretty classy pictures up on Joyfully Jay's facebook page.

I'll also be posting updates on some new co-written projects with Lisa Henry that will be coming your way soon!

But right now, I just want to sleep for hours and hours.


  1. Sleep well...the mess will still be here when you wake up :)

    1. I feel like I could tell myself that every night before going to bed, and it would always be true.
