Whut? Nobody won?

I can't believe that nobody won the gorgeous necklace from Peggy Li. Well, technically, I won, because all the comments were that I sent you over here. Ha! However, since I already own 4 Peggi Li necklaces, not to mention ethical issues with giving myself the prize, I am going to use the necklace for my Valentine's Day promotion, coming up soon.

Meanwhile, I mailed all of The List yesterday from the online signing event this weekend. I'm happy with the success, which I judged by the annoyance on the face of the post-office guy that had to hand stamp and put postage on each one. We were there for over a half hour! The people behind me in line were truly annoyed, but I don't care, because it's not like I was being persnickity like the other woman who kept demanding that they find her package (that was clearly not there.) I was a kind, paying customer, so I can't feel guilty. Plus, if you come into the post office at 4:55 p.m., that's your fault, not mine.

In other news, I'm working on a new pre-Valentine's contest for The List, so stay tuned.

I am also looking for any bloggers that might want to team up for some co-linking.

And that's it in today's List.


  1. Carmen, in spite of the fact that you didn't give away your Lie necklace, I think you'll go far because you seem to have a knack for promotion and because you have one heck of a sense of humor. Humor goes far in the publishing industry.

    Thank you for subscribing to my Sharing with Writers newsletter. I hope to stay in touch.
