The Long Thin Veil and The Story Board

On Friday, The Wild Rose Press Authors were invited to spend a day at The Story Board Group. I had a lot of fun there, and I of course held a contest. :) I've drawn the winner for that contest and drum roll please, the winner is...Jackie Wisherd! Jackie you've won a free download of The Long Thin Veil...I hope you enjoy reading it!

Now, is everyone getting into the Halloween mood? I won't be dressing up this year but here's a picture I just found on the web of one of the costumes I wore when I was a kid..

I wore this costume to a Halloween Party...it went over really well, until the end of the night when the attendees decided to pop me...seriously! LOL I fit in well since my friends dressed up as a sandwich, a block of cheese and a pickle...I was dessert!

Does anyone else have any other funny Halloween costume stories to tell?

    What Does Your Birth Month Mean?

    Your Birth Month is May

    Unique and creative, you seek your own path in life.
    You love change and are able to adapt to any situation.

    Your soul reflects: Sweetness, joy, and a complete life.

    Your gemstone: Emerald

    Your flower: Lily of the Valley

    Your colors: Yellow, red, and green

    I thought this quiz was pretty cool for a day like today! Here are some true facts about me that this quiz revealed, my favorite flower is Lily of the Valley, I love Emeralds, and when I was little yellow was my favorite color, and I've always liked red and green...they are Christmas colors after all!

    The winners are:

    I had two winners for this contest, since their names got stuck together when I drew them out of my magic bag! LOL I'm serious though, funny as it might seem. :)

    The other lucky winner of a free copy of The Long Thin Veil is Pam Pellini!

    Karen Gray is the lucky winner of a free 100 ml bottle of Violetta Di Parma body lotion. This fragrance was created for Napoleon's second wife, Marie, Duchess of Parma. :) She entered and won the contest for Twilight's Kiss!

    The Ancient Muse

    I love Loreena McKennitt's music. I can't wait for this new album called The Ancient Muse to come out in late November, just in time for Christmas. It's going to be great, I can feel it in my bones. :)

    I know one thing though, with a name like The Ancient Muse, it will definitely inspire my own creative muse! Just looking at the cover makes me want to go and write. :)

    You can find out more at Loreena's official website!
