Aaand... We Have A Winner!

Happy Monday, Everyone!

You would think, given that it's Monday, the start of a new week full of possibility, that I would have something pithy or inspiring or at the very least entertaining to share with you all.

And I do!

I have exactly ONE THING!

(Prepare for the shortest post in the history of this blog!)

I'm sure you will all recall that on Friday we held a giveaway thanks to the generosity of Lori Degman.  One of the commenters on Friday's post was promised a signed copy of Lori's new book, Cock-A-Doodle Oops!

Lori and I were amazed and delighted by how many of you stepped up to admit you were donkeys, chickens, pigs, goats, horses, cows, sheep, ducks, and wow! a whole lot of barn cats!  Also, we loved your creative and original crows!

Random.org has done its thing, and I'm thrilled to announce that Farmer McPeeper and his barnyard menagerie will be winging their way to sunny Italy, because none other than the lovely Renee has won Lori's book!

Lori, thank you again for generously donating a copy of your wonderful new book!

Everyone who commented, thank you so much for joining the fun, and I hope you all get a chance to read Lori's fabulous book!

And Renee, please email me your address again because although I'm pretty sure I have it somewhere you will get your book a whole lot sooner if you just send me your address than if I start rooting around for it.  I'm very ADD when it comes to searching... or house cleaning... and have a tendency to get distracted from my original task and go off on unrelated tangents and would likely end up sending myself a box of Perugina Chocolate instead of figuring out where in Italy to send your book :)

Have a marvelous Monday, everyone! :)

  6. I recently got my extraordinary critique from Lori (my fantastic prize from your Fractured Fairy Tale competition). I can attest that not only is she an incredible writer, but also a remarkable, generous, and thorough critiquer. I was dazzled and delighted.

    I'm heading out to buy her book today.

    Congrats Ms. LaTulippe! :D WHOA! That WAS a short post! ;) No teasing? No story about seeing that one pretty daffodil by the edge of the driveway? Or the crickets chirping around your yard? ;)

    No worries, Lori! I often wonder how I keep anything straight...there's always so much going on...as I'm sure there is in your busy life. ;) Please don't stress about it..I'll be thrilled when I get it and will post a review on Amazon! I know I'm going to love it. ;)
