Yesterday, my box o' goodies finally arrived from the lovely people over at the Best Damn Creative Writing Blog. If you remember back before the holidays, they were doing a promotion where they interviewed several fantastic writers and then gave away copies of their books along with other goodies. I was lucky enough to be chosen by Matt Bell for his new book and some other unnamed prizes. After much anticipation, I was thrilled to find that in addition to Matt Bell's book, I also received two others and a tote bag. Bags being second only to books in my heart, this was a pretty awesome. I apologize for the poor quality pic of my goodies, but my phone is, um, old and cheap, to put it nicely.
I received the following books:
How They Were Found by Matt Bell (autographed!)
Sweetie by Kathryn Magendie (also autographed!)
Every Riven Thing by Christian Wiman (This included a copy of a profile done on Wiman in Poets & Writers)
I think it is pretty nice how they included a novel, a poetry collection, and a short story collection, running the gambit to satisfy many literary appetites.
Speaking of appetites, Gus is hungry as always. He and his brother have been up to more cattery over at Conversing with Cats. Pop on over if you want a chuckle on this cold Tuesday morning. Personally, I am planning on staying in bed with a good book this morning. :)
