I was truly amazed. I never win anything.
I would have posted about it, but I was to busy freaking out and then I thought I would wait until I had the books actually in my hands.
Anyway, my amazing prizes came today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Heir of Night by Helen Lowe and a hardcover copy of JULIET MARILLIER'S new book, Shadowfell.
While receiving the books alone would have been enough to throw me into paroxysms of inarticulate book ecstasy, both the authors signed my books with my name. And they signed the packaging they came in. And they wrote my address with their very own published writer hands!
|Aren't they lovely? |
|Also, I have new fodder for my writerly fantasies . . .|
I am now going to have awesome postcards of my book.
Oh, my God! Helen Lowe and Juliet Marillier know someone name Tyler-Rose is alive on this planet!!!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Epic fan-girl moment!!!!!!
I feel a little like how I felt when I went to see Anne Hathaway's house in England,
"You mean this is the actual, original floor, Shakespeare might have actually stood on??!?! Let me fall to the ground and kiss it, thereby absorbing some of his genius through these magnificent, beautiful flagstones!"
Thank you so much to Helen Lowe for being a fabulous writer and making the world a better place and for hosting the interview and giveaway and dealing with all my panicked, ecstatic, flaky emails.
And thank you to Bronwen Jones, Helen Lowe's excellent assistant, also for dealing with all my panicked, ecstatic, flaky emails.
And thank you to Juliet Marillier for agreeing to be interviewed, for being brilliant, for writing the most amazing books, and for writing the name of this puny mortal on the same page with yours and in your very own hand.
Now that I've got that off my chest,
I think I might need to go take a nap.
Authors are my ROCKSTARS!
