Gifts that Keep on Giving

The universe is being kind to me this week. Thank you universe.

Sherry Thomas (also a wuxia fan) is giving away a copy of Butterfly Swords on her website.  *bounce* Even if you already have Butterfly Swords, you want to go check her out. I’d highly recommend all her books, but especially Not Quite a Husband. Her writing and use of language is exquisite. I keep on replaying scenes from NQAH in my head, even now, months and months after reading it. I haven’t felt that way about a book in a long time.

More good things: Remember that Grand Prize giveaway that I had as part of my Launch Celebration? I can’t help but think that, though randomly drawn, those prizes went to the right people.

First, Stephanie Hyacinth, professional romance reader, sent me these awesome photos of her new swords. I must say, she’s got the Eye of the Tiger there and looks much better than I ever did  with the swords.

Second, the annotated copy of Butterfly Swords is still packed away in my office to be sent out next year. Desere offered to donate it to the Brenda Novak Auction for Diabetes Research. She lost her grandfather to diabetes and my entire family struggles with diabetes, so I was very happy about that.

Anne, the winner of the color poster from deviantArtist schumy330, was part of the crew that requested Butterfly Swords be stocked at Kinokuniya in Indonesia. How wonderful of them–and look at the nice placement between Teresa Medeiros and Maya Banks. One day in the US…

Book people are really, really wonderful individuals. Just saying.
