Dear Readers of the Near Future,
It is I, Danielle of the Recent Past. …I mean, as far as I’m concerned, it’s the present, but by the time I post this, it will be my tomorrow and your today – Friday, July 26th, fifth and final day of the Blogger Book Fair.
Since I had the good sense not to over commit myself (for a change), I’m all out of BBF-assigned swaps to share. However, thanks to idle hands being the workaholic’s playground, I couldn’t help spending a portion of the time I saved maneuvering myself onto the blog of author/editorial intern/submissions intern Rachel Russell to talk about myself (which I do when I must) and “The Swan Prince” (which I do when anyone appears even half-interested in hearing about). So I encourage you to check that out at your earliest convenience, and show Rachel just how appreciative you are of her hosting me. (:
Speaking of “The Swan Prince”, Near-Future Readers (since I predict you will appear half-interested), I’m currently awaiting tomorrow/today’s announcement of the winners of this summer’s Blogger Book Fair Reader’s Choice Awards. When last I looked, I had an incredible lead. Seriously, almost “too extraordinary and improbable to be believed”. I lay in bed Monday night in distress, sure that I could never coax enough people to get me to the front of the pack, never mind crack 100 votes. Yet here we are – today for me, yesterday for you – and I actually believe that I may win this thing. It’s not over ‘til it’s over, of course. …but it’s pretty close to over! ^^
Once I’ve gotten official wind of the outcome, we’ll know whether I have one raffle winner to fill with the joy that only a “Swan Prince” paperback and two sets of Wilderhark Tales bookmarks can bring, or twice that many. Which will it be?? We’ll all just have to wait for Part Two – coming to a future nearer you than me.
