My vocal cords have resigned in protest this morning. My voice has been reduced to a hoarse whisper. I've been fighting a virus for a few days but that's only part of the problem. Last night I gave a speech on literacy to a crowded hall filled with children and parents. It wasn't a long speech but the sound system was poor and I was forced to use my outside, motherly, authoritative voice. You know, the one that's used to shouting, "Stop that right now!" or "Go to your room!"
So today, I'm going to whisper. And perhaps think loud thoughts :)
Thanks for all the private emails from people who lurk and say they would promo my book on their blogs if they had blogs. I promise to have another mailing list contest soon too. In the mean time, another reminder:
I've been blessed with a number of great reviews so to celebrate I'm having a contest. To be entered to win, simply mention The Remains of the Dead on your blog or site and link the mention back here to me (or to the Amazon page selling Remains) then come back here and tell me in the comments that you've done it. I'll be making the draw Jan. 31st and the winner will walk away with a couple signed copies of Remains plus a mystery gift :)
