Monday Check In (on Tuesday), Fun Friday Contest Winner and New Contest for this Week

Wow, that's a long header. Being out of the loop for this many days means lots of catching up. :)

First things first, last week’s winner of Karen Rose’s book Die For Me, is Terri W.
Congrats Terri, you'll love the book. Just don't read it when you're all alone.

Email me at vickilanewrites at yahoo.com with your snail mail info and I’ll get the book out to you by the end of the week.

We’re in the new house!!! It’s taken us five days but most of our things are unpacked and have found their new home. I must say that the kitchen still does not have enough space. Do they ever? I’m thinking the answer to that is no.

Pictures still need to be hung as well as few boxes still to go but all in all we’re in. Yea!

My office is coming along great. For that I am extremely thankful. I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time working when everything is all over the place.

I’ll post some pictures soon. I’ve missed everyone here as well as everyone who I visit each day.

Also, I know I owe several books to winners and I’ll mail them out this week. With the move I couldn’t seem to find the time to get to the post office. So sorry about that.

No new words to report this week but watch out next Monday. I’ve missed writing and my muse has decided enough is enough.

Now for the fun part. This weeks contest is Cindy Kirk’s new book, When She Was Bad. Don't you love the cover!!!

This just hit the shelves in July. If this is the first time reading any of her books, then you’re in for a real treat. Below is the back cover blurb and if you click the title link above you’ll be able to read the excerpt.

She never knew how good “bad” could be!

Jenny Carman is tired of playing by the rules. It didn’t get her the promotion she so deserved, and it certainly didn’t get her Mr. Right. Or even Mr. Right Now. It’s time for her to do something besides spend Saturday nights at the Laundromat. So she’s letting down her long blonde hair, stepping out of her gray suits and into some sexy stilettos…

Leaning against a bar, dressed in a lacy, curve-hugging red camisole, Jenny’s ready for action--and gorgeous businessman Robert Marshall eagerly takes the bait. She tells him her name is Jasmine, a hairstylist, and gets ready for a mind-blowing evening. Robert, however, is smart, funny, sensitive--worth a lot more than a hot one-night stand. But one lie leads to another, plunging Jenny/Jasmine in way over her head. She can’t keep this double life up forever--but will she still drive the handsome hunk wild if he discovers a good girl hiding inside?

Leave you’re comments this week and on Friday, yes really on Friday, I’ll announce the winner. Things should be back to normal now. Whatever normal means when you’re a writer.

So, what about you. Have you written this week? Thought about your current wip? Did you do anything exciting for Labor Day weekend? Tell us about it. You know it’s that enquiring minds want to know thing. Tell us how you did on writing and anything else fun that you’d like to share.

It’s so good to be back…now I’m off to visit some of my favorite blogs. Then to write!

Writing Wishes and Plotting Dreams,

Hello Vicki.

You may have seen me over at "The Accidental Novelist." I do not contribute much to blogs and do not have one of my own (I have no idea how you all find the time). I do "lurk" a bit here and there.

I suppose I am slightly anti-social by nature, even in the virtual world (don't let the fact that I'm in "communications" fool you, my communication is on the page).

I did, however, want to recognize you for your positive attitude and encouraging nature. I found it quite refreshing.

Dan F.

Thanks for the welcome back. :) It's good to be here.

Dan, thanks for coming by and for the really nice words. I believe this writing journey should be filled with encouragement from those around us. Come back and lurk anytime. You're always welcome here. :)

Glad you're back, Vicki! I just gave 'the pampered prince' back to my in-laws. We had a week with the finicky pooch, and it actually wasn't too bad--we had fun. But I'm behind on my writing too...
