Weekly Wrap Up + Awards!
This has been quite a week! Wrapped up the A to Z Challenge last Saturday, which was so much fun! I really enjoyed meeting everyone. And then I found out that two of my novellas have been contracted with the winner of the Shamrock Challenge being released in June. Wow! I’ve definitely been pinching myself.
No progress meter to share this week. I’ll get back to that within the next couple of weeks.

Thanks for the Versatile Blogger Award, C R Ward!
This award requires that you
1. Link back to the awarder (which I’ve done above)
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award this to 10-15 newly discovered bloggers
4. Tell said bloggers they have an award waiting.
My Seven Things:
1. I adore cats. They’re so awesome.
2. I’m also a huge fan of Finland, that country between Sweden and Russia. =P I’ve visited there 3 times now.
3. I much prefer the cold to heat. With that in mind, Winter is my favorite season.
4. I almost got an English/History double major in college, but I decided that I wanted to graduate sooner than later.
5. I love music. Trance, Rock, and Symphonic Goth Metal are some of my favorites, but I listen to all kinds.
6. I’m not really a morning person. I prefer staying up late at night.
7. I love gaming. PC games, console games, board games, and, heck, card games too! I love to play.
