My Holiday Wish

The Publishing Fairy and I had a long talk last night, during which I presented her with my wish list.

As she read it, she began shaking her head over what I'd written and making comments:

"Not within my wand range."

"Bill Gates's Fairy is meaner and more powerful than me."

"When pigs fly, honey."

"Are you kidding? You are kidding. Telling me you're kidding."

"That's sweet. Tragic, misguided, and completely out of the question, but sweet."

"No."

"Santa doesn't do that."

"Or that."

"Especially not that."

Finally she got to the red-circled item on my list, the one thing I really wanted for Christmas. At which point the Publishing Fairy threw down the list. "You're crazy."

Of course I was, but I also tried to look deserving.

"Don't give me the sad writer eyes. They never work on me."

I ducked my head.

"All right. But this is only because you were a good girl and didn't touch that huge box of chocolate your editor sent you." She sighed, handed me back my list, stood up and waved her wand over me. "Wish granted."

In my hands appeared a long list of names, all of whom (thanks to the PF) are the winners of the Holiday Wishes giveaway, and they are:

Jessica ~ Jaye Patrick ~ ♫♥LovLivLife Reviews♥♫ ~ Robin F ~ Stacy M ~ Paranormal and Romantic Suspense Reviews ~ Jackie Uhrmacher (yes, even if you're getting a review copy) ~ Anonymous (winterfall333) ~ Amalia ~ L in Oz ~ mofo8727 ~ Charlene Teglia ~ Shiloh Walker ~ Elizabeth ~ Michelle ~ Karen Mahoney ~ Melissa ~ Diane ~ ableskiver ~ bluebamboo ~ s7anna ~ B.E.

Just in case I missed any names as I was transcribing them from comments, everyone who commented yesterday is getting a signed copy of Frostfire. Now go, enjoy your holiday, your weekend, and when you have time after that, please e-mail your full name and ship-to address to LynnViehl@aol.com. Of course I have to order the extra copies of the novel, and sign all of them, but I should be able to get everyone their books in a week or two.

In the meantime:

  3. I have not posted here for a while but I am still reading your blog and I just wanted to say...

    * You are wonderfully funny. That's what keeps me coming back.

    * You are one of the more generous people I have encountered. This is something that I really appreciate and, for real, the World is a more beautiful place because of that.

    * Your stories are really cool.

    Dear Lynn - Merry Christmas. I thought this was an exceptionally cool thing to do and I just wanted you to know that. And that you still rule the writing blog thingy...

    Christmas hugs (or whatever feels appropriate) from your resident viking.
