That’s the thing. I made it. Go me. Original photo is mine, took it on a trip to a wildlife refuge when I first moved to Alaska.
Here’s why I made it. Sara King asked me to write a…thing…to represent her for GraveTells’ Most Original Story Universe (reader’s choice) Award. I don’t know who nominated her, but I love her books and she’s a lot of fun to work with, sooooo… I wrote the thing.
After sending it in at the last second (as is my standard “Oh gods, oh gods, NO TIME” mode of operation), the woman who runs GraveTells asked me to write another thing for Sara. ‘cause Sara is that much of a badass and has been nominated for 2012’s Most Promising New Author category, too. Rock on, Sara. So, after a horrible afternoon/evening attempting to find a dress and shoes for Saturday’s Yule Celebration, staying up all night trying to find things in my size—that I actually like AND could get to Alaska before Saturday (yeah, that didn’t work)—and crying my eyes out being miserable until 9am, I wrote the other thing.
I like them. Go read them. Vote for Sara. Leave comments about how awesome I am Sara is.
