I’m a winner!
Last month, in an effort to increase her followers, my writer friend, Gail, sponsored a giveaway contest. Her goal was to make it to 50 followers, which she did, and then some! And because she was giddy with success, she gave away a few more prizes than she’d planned. So guess who won a book and chocolate?
I won the award-winning book, Savvy, by Ingrid Law. I’ve already read Savvy, but I’ll be feasting on this wonderful juvenile read again. Because reading good books makes good writers. And giving away good books (and don’t forget the chocolate!) makes gaining followers a snap (and Gail a savvy blogger!).
Hmmm. I’m not sure whether I’m tooting my horn for me, Gail and her successful giveaway, or Ingrid Law’s book, Savvy. I guess I sort of threw in a toot for us all. And while I’m at it, I’ll throw in a toot for my dad, the Birthday Boy.
He’s 87 years old today. Wow. That can’t be right…’cause if he’s 87, then I must be, um, getting back to work. Those contest giveaways aren’t going to win themselves.
Hi Cathy,Congratulations! Sounds like a great book.Happy birthday to your dad. Seems like your dad and I share something in common, but I'm about 25 years younger than he is. Donna
Aw, many happy returns, Donna!
Happy birthdays all around! Horn tooting all around! :)A good book and chocolate? Sounds like Heaven. Congrats, Cathy!
Congratulations, happy eating and reading and happy, HAPPY birthday to your dad. When we're our dads' ages (mine is 87 too) we'll be happy to tell the number
Thanks for the good wishes, y'all! I'll be calling my dad later (when he gets off the golf course) to send wishes. So, yep, if I'm playing golf at 87, I'd be a happy camper. (Of course, if I could play golf NOW, I'd be a happy camper.)
Congrats on everything! I, too, became a follower of Gail, not so much for the prizes, but because YOU posted about it!! That reminds me…it'll soon be time for another give-away contest on my blog!Happy B'day to your dad!! How awesome that he's out playing golf!!!! OMG! That is unbelievable!
It IS awesome, thanks, Becky!Can't wait till YOUR next giveaway-you know how I love a contest!
Happy birthday to your dad! My father-in-law will be 87 in October, and if your old guy is like our old guy, he's a peach. Um, can I borrow Savvy when you're done? I promise to return it, and if I don't, you know where I live!
Of course, Lisa! You will LOVE it!(87, too? Yet another do-do-do-do-do-do moment 🙂
