Good News



The first bit of good news is announcing the winner of the Malice goodies. My daughter chose a random number between 1-24 (the # of comments on last week's post) and the winner is...Breaunna Miller. Congratulations, Breaunna! Send me your snail mail address, and I'll send you some cool Malice swag.

The second bit of news is that I just heard that Absolutely, Positively, the third book in my Lucy Valentine series won best mystery of 2011 by Romance Reviews Today. I'm beyond thrilled! A big THANK YOU to RRT. They've always been so supportive of my books, and this is just icing on the cake. Click for a list of all the winners.

And the third bit of news, which is more interesting than good, is that I received a Google alert yesterday telling me that I have a Wikipedia page. Not sure who set it up, but thank you to whoever did. It's very well done! I need to add a couple of books, but other than that, it's fairly complete.

Have you had any good news lately?

Well, my bit of good news was waking up this morning to find out I won the "Malice swag" drawing! I also found out a couple of weeks ago that I will be able to finally have a surgery that I have needed for about 10 years now! It's a very complicated story but I will be able to have my surgery late this month so I am very, very happy with that news! Thanks for making my Friday Fantastic Heather!
BTW....... I also love the new layout on the Cozy Chicks website.

That looks good! Can you also add pictures of your covers?
I had very good news twice this week, as I have won a $ 25,00 giftcard to both Amazon and All About Romance ebooks. Way to start a month!

Michelle said...

Ooh, the swag prize sounds good; wish I had known about it so I could've entered.

Kate Collins said...

Wow!! Huge congrats, Heather, on all your wins.

CONGRATULATIONS on the big win for Absolutely, Positively, Heather! So very deserved! And, seriously, how fun is it that someone made you a Wikipedia page!

I've been holding my breath for some very particular good news, but it hasn't arrived yet. Hopefully I'll be hearing soon. Waiting is hard, isn't it?

I love the new wallpaper for the blog. So cute.

Books by Heather said...

Breaunna, congratulations! I think you'll like the swag. :) And good luck with your surgery.

Aurian, that is good news! Congrats! We're in the process of adding back the covers, so keep an eye out for them.

Maybe next time, Michelle! I'll probably do the same giveaway for Bouchercon in October.

Thanks, Kate!

I'll cross my fingers for you, too, Kristin. I love good news. :)
