The 40th Follower Award goes to...

Kristi of Random Daily Thoughts has become my 40th Follower (no Jim Jones thing going on here). And for this effort, unbeknownst to her, I am awarding her one paperback book from the following choices:

For a cozy mystery- Elizabeth Spann Craig's Pretty Is As Pretty Dies -

Terrorist-plot/Thriller- Mark Terry's The Serpent's Kiss -

Historical fiction- Galen Kindley's Hearts of The Morning Calm

Or if you prefer YA/A reads- one of L. Diane Wolfe's Circle of Friends books.
Merry Christmas, Kristi! And welcome to SouthernCityMysteries!

Kristi is also an aspiring author, a little further along in her career than I. Her book The Wolf Within is set to be released February 25, 2010. Furthermore, she is a fellow NCer, so more power to the Tar Heel state!

Stay with me, who knows what other secret awards I have up my blogging sleeves?


  1. Woo hoo! I never win anything...seriously!

    Thanks Michele for both the book and the blurb about my site! This came at the perfect time...I've been looking for something new to read. All of the books look wonderful but I think I'll give "The Serpent's Kiss" a try!

    And it's nice to have a fellow NC girl on here!

  2. Wow, that was a generous gift!
    And looks like there's a lot of us NC girls here...

  3. I wasn't sure you genre of choice, nor what you'd already read. But these are authors I've discovered through blogging, and I highly recommend them all. If you will email your address to me at micheleemrath@ymail.com, I will have the book sent to you! Thanks for signing on here, and, as I said earlier, I look forward to reading more from you! I hope more people will stop by your blog as well.

    I truly believe it's all about helping each other out in the writing world.

    Diane-We must stick together like "tar!"


  4. Before long you’re gonna have 400 followers! And why not…it’s a quality blog, with useful information that’s entertaining and well written. Pretty much everything one could hope for in a blog…and then some. BTW, thank you for offering my book as one of the options. That’s a real honor, especially given the company. Hope your weekend has been and will continue to be fun and enjoyable.

    Best Wishes, Galen.
