I Won the Sense of Place Contest!
I am so excited! I won the Sense of Place Contest for the Maggie's Southern Reading Challenge. My entry is included with my review of Charles Martin's When Crickets Cry. It truly was a book that evoked a sense of place. Someday perhaps I will be able to visit Lake Burton. I'm certainly ready right now, if only my boss could spare me.
My prize, you ask? An autographed copy of Plain Heathen Mishief by Martin Clark. It sounds like it will be quite a fun adventure! I look forward to reading it.
I think most of all though I enjoyed visiting the other participants' blogs. There were so many great entries. If you get the chance visit Maggie's blog and click on the links of the various participants.
On a side note, today I received a pin for being with my agency for 10 years (my actual anniversary was back in June). One of my coworkers was in stitches, laughing so hard despite trying to keep a straight face and show her admiration for the pin. She thinks I deserve a big bonus. I think I deserve an all expense paid trip to Lake Burton. At least in 20 years, I will get to choose a gift from a catalog. Maybe a pen or a mug?
