It is snowing here again and the world is beautiful! This time the wind is calm so the trees are covered. I love that. I lay in bed last night finished Dot.Dead, knowing huge flakes were coating the ground and making everything soft and quiet.
Speaking of finishing books, three members of our wonderful writing community have completed manuscripts! As you all know, I created the 'Writers Know' Award for just such an occasion. Today we pass it along to three deserving women of accomplishment.
Patricia Stoltey. Author of The Praire Grass Murders and The Desert Hedge Murders, publication doesn't mean we don't recognize her for completing another MS! And she especially needs this because she's been in a funk lately. So out, out damn funk! (Any dead bodies rolling over?) Award for Patricia!
Stephanie Thornton. For Hatshepsut. Yesterday she wrote that she "realized I had another story to tell." So this won't be the last Writers Know for Stephanie! Hoo-ah to that!
Kristi Chestnutt. Kristi is off snowboarding in the magical mountains with her husband for some sort of romantic holiday. I suppose that is a bit more important and celebratory than the Writers Know award, so I'll give her a pass this time. But you can grab it when you get back, Kristi! Congrats and we can't wait to see that cover you've been promising!
Carolyn Yalin. Part of Patricia's critique group and just finished her first MS! Way to go Carolyn, and welcome to our writing community. Looking forward to checking out your blog and your work. Congrats!
Come back tomorrow for a special Valentine's Day guest post from a mythical god.
