Reader’s Appreciation Award and Other Love

Wow, the most awesome Kasia James, of whom I am a great fan, gave me the Reader’s Appreciation Award. This award recognizes those who regularly read and comment on my blog (I read hers all the time).  It’s a simple award as these go (no list of sevens).  I just share what I’m doing now.

My gut reaction is to tell you I’m currently writing a blog post, but that’s somewhat juvenile (but still fun).  Here goes. School has started for my not-so-little-any-more progeny. You know how that goes–back to school night, we have to rent an instrument this year (trumpet–no idea where that came from) and new chauffering routines.   In my day job, we are gearing up for a big conference.  And I am day two of the cleanse (no caffeine, alcohol, sugar, gluten and animal products) and I so miss my morning coffee.  (Ah the oh so glamorous life of the romance writer).  One cool thing, my WIP, Next Move, just received second place in the erotic category of the Celtic Hearts Golden Claddagh Contest. Big Squeee for all the love I’m getting.

Finally, I pass the award on to:

Naomi Baltuck at Writing Between the Lines (who Kasia also tagged but in the interests of recognizing the most commentors, I’m doing it too. Blimey, am I playing by the rules? What’s up with that?)

Missus Tribble

Misty Dietz who blogs on Chick Swagger with Josie Mathews

and to a few stalkers who but I know read it regularly but don’t comment on the blog itself (~waves~I see you out there.)

Tell me, what are you all up to now?

  1. Congratulations on getting paced in the Claddagh contest! You’re on a roll.
    You may live to regret trumpet though. Is it possible to practice trumpet quietly? If not, could be time to invest in some of those noise

      1. Thanks Kasia. The trumpet actually has not been confirmed. She has to meet with the music teacher and discuss it together. I should know soon enough and then if she gets what she wants, earphones here I come.

  2. Hi Sabrina,

    Thanks for the Reader Appreciation Award. Congratulations on the Golden Claddagh! That is really quite a big deal, and it bodes well for the future of your book! The trumpet will be an adventure. I LOVE homemade music in my home–of any kind. Bea took it upon herself to learn the violin outside of school, so she had a weekly lesson and practiced. At first it was kind of screechy, but I looked at it as a promise for the future, and an outward sign of the inward creativity and expression that I wanted to encourage in my kids. Now she plays beautifully, and we play duets–her violin and she puts up with my screechy penny whistle.

    Good luck with the conference, and the cleanse.

    I really enjoyed learning more about you and what’s going on. I will do the same in the next day or two.
    Best wishes,
    Naomi

  3. Congrats on the Celtic Hearts placement, girl!! I hear you about the new Fall routine. I think it’s been harder on me than the kids. But good too. :) Thanks for passing it on and for being a Triberr buddy to rely on. xoxo
