Luckily this is my second year of escape. I have had the wonderful opportunity to escape the cold, damp, rainy weather of the north for the blue, sunny skies and tranquil warm breezes of Florida. I can't begin to tell you how that soothes the soul.
So much has happened this past month. Lots of new friends who joined my blogging family. For the first time since I've blogged, I've won many exciting books. I was involved in fun new blogfests that I really enjoyed and was able to challenge my writing. This was good practice with the A-Z challenge coming up.
My piers/friends have given me a variety of awards which mean the world to me ... and yes, I do pass them on In Time ... lol.
And the most exciting of all, I had made it through the first pitch of ABNA. No, I wasn't one of the talented few that became a quarter finalist, but two wonderful friends and writer's did: Hart Johnson and Elena Solodow.
Like last year I did learn something from this year's experience, even with good reviews many of us still didn't have the right magic to move on. It's not our time, but there is always something better just around the corner.
So, for once, I enjoyed this crazy month. Of course, we still have another week or so for more unexpected surprises.
This is also the month for tons and I mean tons of blogfests, contests, and meeting new bloggers from around the world. Check out my sidebar for what's still happening. But I would like to highlight a terrific blogger and friend. Tony Benson from Fireside Park is giving away a few amazing books and is shy a few new friends to reach his 200 mark.
If you're not familiar with Tony, hop on over and introduce yourself. He is an exciting fantasy/science fiction writer who makes you feel right a home. He is married to the lovely Margo, a sweeter person you could never meet. Imagine having two dynamic writers in one household. So make sure you meet the Tony and Margo, you'll be happy that you did.
As a final note on MARCH 30th don't forget to sign up from my HP blogfest. Click onto Ron, Harry, and Hermione on the top left and be whisked away to sign up.
Have a GREAT Thursday everyone!
