Giveaway Winners and Hazel and Holly’s Return
Just a short post today. Yesterday was Sweden’s National Day, which resulted in me being lazy and not preparing any blog posts. But here’s a picture of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, with the Queen wearing the national costume of Sweden, which, I’ve discovered, was created in the early 1900’s, but didn’t become “a thing” until Queen Silvia wore it in 1983–the same year when June 6 became the National Day of Sweden. Prior to that the date had been Swedish Flag Day, but didn’t actually become a full-blown holiday with time off and people being lazy until 2005. Crazy stuff. There’s your Swedish Fun Facts for the day!
Anyway, so the giveaway for A Shadowed Spirit is done, and I’d have to say it was a pretty good success. It drummed up some interest for the book and brought quite a few new folks to the blog, which is great. Welcome everyone! It was also good fun, so I’ll probably do another one in the future. So, if you didn’t win this time, don’t fret, you’ll probably get another chance!
Thank you everyone who participated and helped spread the word. Here are the four winners that were drawn:
Tree of Life pendant: Joey R.
Signed paperback copies of A Shadowed Spirit: Natasha D. & Sophie D.
Amazon gift certificate: Patricia K.
Congratulations you guys!
Hazel and Holly
This Friday, Hazel and Holly will also be making a return. The break was nice, it allowed me to catch up a bit as I was starting to seriously lag behind. I’m still currently writing it, and so I still don’t know how it’s going to end. The way things are going, this might end up being the longest story I’ve written to date.
If you’ve been following the series, here’s the latest installment in case you need a refresher on what’s happening. If you haven’t started it yet, but would like to, head on over to Death Before Dawn and start the adventure. Good times.
Hi Sara – lovely photo of the King and Queen .. she looks gorgeous …
Good luck with Hazel and Holly – and see you around .. cheers HilaryReply
