Everybody loves a winner. Or so they say. It sure is fun to be a winner. And, lucky me, I am one! My novel, Perfect Little Worlds, about aging, love, and surviving an earthquake just won a Golden Crown Literary Award. Or, for you people in the know, a “Goldie.” I am so darn happy, I’m going to do a giveaway. Write a comment and I will put your name in a hat. Then, Friday, I’ll pull a name out and that person will get to be a winner too! Because they will win a copy (paperback or e-book), of Perfect Little Worlds. (This could be you!)
In the meantime, let me just say, winning a book award is better than…
An unlimited gift certificate to an ice cream parlor.
Never having to do laundry again.
A ride on a camel.
A whole pile of valentines.
Your favorite song coming up on the radio when you’re taking a drive in the country.
A piece of chocolate cake.
Two pieces of chocolate cake.
A new pair of cool shoes.
I’m telling you, it feels so great! Writing is such a solitary endeavor. Most readers never reach out and tell you they read your book. Only some are kind enough to write reviews. If you are one of those people who do, THANK YOU! Your feedback is muy appreciated. In the meantime, I’m going to revel in this winner-ness. As you can see, it’s left me (somewhat) speechless.
So, that’s what I’ve got today. Enjoy your day—and make a comment. You too, could be a winner!
And remember, live the love. It’s all we’ve got.
Even better than praise after a very successful improv show or sex in our youthful prime? Cliffie you are a champion for so many folks and you deserve your victory. Keep on being your wonderful self and know that you are a winner in so many ways every day.
Note, I did not include either of those two. : ) Thanks for checking in.
Come on!! Better than “never having to do laundry again?!”
Love you Cliffie
You deserve lots of awards xo
Pretty much. Nice to hear from you, Paula!
So proud of you! No need to put me in the drawing because I have all your books and share them! But I will take a piece of chocolate cake! 🤣 Keep up the good work. What are you writing about now?
Thank you for sharing my books. That means the world to me. Virtual chocolate cake coming your way!
Yaaaaaay!!! … ** waves arms in the air like Kermit and runs around in circles** … Congratulations!!! 😀
I LOVE your books and they keep getting better (in my humble opinion.) So, keep on writing dear one. Your world view and reflections and crazy imagination are gifts to us all!!! Love you…Bayla
Thank you Bayla! I think out world views are pretty similar. Love you!
We are ALL winners … for having you among us – to give us laughter, and insight … thoughtfulness and community … empathy and awareness – BUT MOST OF ALL: LOVE in its purest form. Yes, winning a “Goldie” is truly an honor … but being your “Brotha” is the best honor I have ever won! Why? Cause no matter what a crumminess comes out of me – I turn around and you are ever there to give support, a hug and an ear. So, if truth be known – We ALL are winners because of YOU! Thanks for sharing your “Golden” self with this earth’s humanity!! Love ya bunches, Brotha James
I feel the same way. I love you being my brotha! We are definitely cut from the same cloth. The love cloth. Adore you to pieces. Cliffi
So happy for you Clifford!! And proud. (Am I allowed to say that if I’m not your mother?) I’m ecstatic that you’re getting public acknowledgement for your immense talent. You bring so much joy into the world, it’s very gratifying to see you get a bunch back. Hugs!
Hey Angelee, Thanks for checking in. I appreciate the kind words!
Love all your books! Such a gift of giving🙏🏼🌹
