Happy Happy Joy Joy!!!

They did it! The Penguins are the Stanley Cup Champions!!! I’m so happy!!!

And now it’s time to buy some new shirts!!!!! Haha!

I had fun at the Annual Reader Author Get Together this past weekend. And I got an awesome gift from a reader!!

I saw her handing out a similar glass to the author next to me. When the author thanked the reader for the gift, the reader thanked the author for writing a good book. I thought that was rather sweet. Then this reader pulled out another glass and headed my way.

I saw what was written on it and I said, “Oh wow! You read my short story.”

She said, “Yep. I liked it so much I bought all your others, so it worked.”

I love how it has John’s stethoscope and a snowflake (since it was snowing in my story). The vampire mouth is pretty awesome, too. I think I need a display cabinet now. J Until then, this glass will sit on the entertainment stand, beside the neat snow globe Kensington had made for my first two books.

Let me tell you, though… It’s readers like that that make me think that maybe I do know how to write well. She certainly made my con!

So… it’s late as I write this. Don’t know if I’ll be able to get any sleep. Just so freakin’ happy! What a way to begin a week.

Have a great Monday!

What a great gift!

Congrats on the Penguins. Though the games were close, they were the far better team. Letang's goal sucked the life out of the Sharks and the building. Bask in the glow!

Makes it all worthwhile! Good on you.

PS Glad your team won!

That glass is the coolest gift ever! And yes, I thought of you when I saw the Penguins won. :)

That's so cool. Readers do make all of this worth it, don't they?!

Jeff - I'm still basking! :)

Maria - It's amazing what a little thing can do. She did this for a lot of authors and we are all in awe.

Jennette - I'll never be able to drink out of it, that's for sure! And not because I don't drink wine. Haha!

Stephanie - Readers are GREAT!

Donna - Probably the best one I ever got. :)
