Hi everyone, Jim here. The astute reader may have realized that I haven’t been around to visit or leave comments over the last couple of weeks; this is because I was hospitalized for a while as a result of a sudden, unexpected medical condition. I am home recuperating now but will mostly be out of commission, computer-wise, for some time as I recover. (There’s one more scheduled Teaser Tuesday post queued up and after that the blog will go dark for a few weeks or months.)
I will be back eventually, but for now, I’ll let my furry friends at The Oceanside Animals explain things from their perspective:
Thank you to everyone who voted (or tried to vote but couldn’t get through the login process, which took me a like the whole week to understand) — Shards has won the Pitch Perfect award for the week of February 6th!
Well, or, seeing as Pedro isn’t in the running for a Pitch Perfect Pick this week, you could vote for my book Shards, if you want to … Clicking on the image below will take you to the voting page.
I only voted once for myself, because that’s how I roll, which means I got an actual vote from somebody who isn’t me. I don’t know who else voted for Shards, but thank you, anonymous person! And another thank you to anyone else who might have the time and inclination to pay Underground Book Reviews a visit and place a vote for Shards — as far as I can tell, no login or account is required.**
** EDIT: I’ve heard that the voting is in fact asking people to log in using WordPress or Facebook. I apparently never log out of anything so I didn’t realize it was doing this. Sorry about that! I appreciate that people have been willing to cast votes for Shards, but please don’t worry if you can’t get to the voting screen — I wouldn’t ask anyone to create an account or log in to a random site on my behalf! 🙂
From the “Just Too Late To Make It Into The Tuesday Post” Department:
I actually do have a final CreateSpace proof of Ravels that I had planned to take a picture of, but I brought both proofs into the studio the other day to show our instructor. A fellow student asked to borrow and read them, so of course I handed them over …
