Lucky, lucky (and thankful)

lucky-boyThere’s a burger place not too far from here called “Lucky Boy”. Well, lately, I’ve been feeling like a lucky girl!

Here are some reasons why:

Contests and Prizes

Very recently, I’ve won a number of book giveaways. I want to thank those generous blogs who’ve hosted them.

Years by LaVyrle Spencer over at Bridget Locke’s Reading, Writing and Life . . . Oh My! (along with some other truly wonderful extras!)

In the Blood (Heather Wallace/Dante series, book 2) by Adrian Phoenix over at Tia Nevitt’s Fantasy Debut

Desire Unchained (Demonica series, book 2) by Larissa Ione from Amy’s Romance Book Wyrm (again, with some cool extras!)

Blue Diablo ARC (A Corinne Solomon Novel, book 1) by Ann Aguirre over at Amy’s Romance Book Wyrm

What I Did for Love by Susan Elizabeth Phillips over at The Book Binge

I’m really looking forward to reading and reviewing all these books!

Great blogging buddies

I have a few Very Overdue thank yous to some wonderful women who have made me feel really special!

My selections for the Excellent Blog Award and the Premio Dardos Award.

You all have places I look forward to visiting, and get happy every time I see a new post listed in my sidebar feed. If I weren’t limited to 15, everyone in my sidebar would be receiving the award — ’cause, hey, you all rock! Now, I know we’re all busy. I hope you can pass the awards on, but if not, I understand. I just wanted to let you know you are all awesome! 🙂

If you won an award, I will be contacting you individually, later today!

A contest of my own:

    Ummm..Renee. I’m so embarrassed to have to ask this but…do I post the icons on my side bar? Is that how it works? I’m so a newbie and these are my first ever awards (still thrilled BTW) so I thought I would check what the procedure is.

    Thank you 🙂
