Mirror, Mirror…Well, Mirror, Lorna

I have a really, really, super duper idea. Wanna hear it?

Hop on over to Cristian Mihai’s blog. He’s a very popular blogger who kindly agreed to post an interview I did with my mirror.

Does that sound confusing or strange? Now that I read it, I’m a little confused and wondering about myself…

I guess you’ll just have to pop over there to see what I’m up to.

Sorry. You can't see his blog from here. You'll have to actually click the link. I know. It's extra work, but you were curious enough to get this far...

And, oh, by the way, you might like to know that my memoir just won an honest-to-goodness LITERARY Award. (Did I emphasize that enough?) Yup. A literary, not literal, award–although it literally won a literary award.

I don't blame you for wanting proof. I need to look at it regularly to convince myself that it's real, too.

The Adirondack Center for Writing holds Literary Award Contest in several genres every year. My book was selected as Best Memoir of 2012. Β This is a juried contest and the judges in all genres are authors in their own right. The awards ceremony was on June 2 and I’m still in a bit of shock.

I’ll post more about this regional organization in an upcoming post. Until then, it’s back to my novel. I’m getting adept at channeling my grandmother…

Heck fire! I thought while I was at it, I'd enlist the help of some other famous writing dudes...

Heck fire! I thought while I was at it, I’d enlist the help of some other famous writing dudes…That is Poe, isn’t it? He better not just be some coked up creepy guy wanting to sit next to me. Been there. Done that.
