BSP--Blatant Self Promotion

What a day it has been! I feel like a real writer. I started off the day with a guest post on Killer Crafts and Crafty Killers, hosted by Lois Winston. My topic was Chinese embroidery which may seem far afield to those of you who know me but trust me, it links right into the newest Kelly O'Connell Mystery, Deception in Strange Places. (http://anastasiapollack.blogspot.com/) Then I got a flattering note from the owners of a site named mytaste.com saying that they had been impressed by my recipes on Potluck with Judy and wanted to list me among their recommended food blogs--so now I have a widget on that Sunday-only blog about mytaste.com. Then came a lovely review of the forthcoming The Perfect Coed from D.Donovan, Senior eBooks Reviewer at Midwest Book Reviews . It opens with "Few mysteries begin with such eye-popping intrigue but The Perfect Coed is full of such moments..." Read it at http://www.midwestbookreview.com/mbw/aug_14.htm#donovan.
This afternoon I got my first audition tape for an audible version of my short story collection, Sue Ellen Learns to Dance and Other Stories. Short stories are a hard sell, but I've always thought some of these were among my best work and two won Wrangler (Western Heritage Awards) from the National Cowboy Museum. So pardon me if I have the big head for at least one evening.
Also, there's only one day left to sign up for my Goodreads giveaway of Murder at the Tremont House. Go ahead--toss your name in the hat--nothing to lose, maybe a free book to gain.
All this kept me busy today but I did manage lunch with a good friend. Then I cooked a birthday dinner for Christian, our meat-and-potatoes man. No potatoes this time but a giant hamburger stuffed with dressing (like you'd put in a turkey but seasoned differently), his favorite green beans (with bacon and vinegar--even Jacob loves them), and Jordan's special blue cheese salad. We ate on the deck--nice ending to a busy day.
