Weekend Intermission...

Wow! What a party! You are the best-est ever! We have set all kinds of records with this blog party and that wasn't even the point. What was the point? Simply to get together for my 100th blog post and celebrate each other, writing, reading, life in general.

We are at the halfway point and still have lots of partying to go. To launch our second half of the most awesome-est (yeah, I really am a writer) blog party for readers and writers, we are starting off on Monday with four books to give away - FOUR winners on Monday!

Mushy Alert: I know this stuff makes some people uncomfortable -- they tell me. Nonetheless, life is short and I don't think we can express appreciation or affection one time too many.

Thank you to the guests who have come to the blog party, sometimes repeatedly. Thank you to those who have invited their friends. Thank you to all our friends and families who have visited 'our' day and not known how to participate, you are the wind beneath our sails. And to my writer friends, thank you for doing this, I know it is time consuming. I'm glad you've enjoyed it. I am having the time of my life, thank you all.

The nice thing about this party is you can revisit any day, like a time machine! The winner of Carolyn Howard-Johnson's book will be announced on Monday. Have a good weekend. Please play this song below that I posted for YOU. You know who you are. Yes, you - you're the one.

    PS: Nadine, don't forget to send me name of book, author and link so I can do a tweet each day.

  5. Yes, Miss...will do.

    Glyn lives in France now.

    See email I sent to all the writer hosts. Important info for Monday.

    Thank you for co-hosting last Friday.

  6. Just a note: This blog party has been visited by people from 37 countries.

    I just want to say, welcome and thank you. Make yourself at home with us. We want you here, we want to hear from you. Everyone is welcome to comment. Everyone.

  7. I LOVE today's song. It fits this so well.

  8. Joy, yes! I DO want to thank everyone, individually. You are the best people, the ones who make all the difference in the world.

  9. No wonder these stars get hooked on the attention. Lovely song, lovely woman but I'm always amazed by that kind of adulation. Do love the gratitude on her part, though. (-:

  10. She is a classy lady, for sure. Very sincere too.

  11. Correction in my previous information: On Monday four authors will give away a total of six books. There will be FIVE winners on Monday, read Monday's post to understand what the heck I'm talking about!

  12. I won your Haiku
    Contest – yeah! Thank you so much.
    Writers rock, I think.

  13. I was just making a cup of coffee thinking, "Come to the party today, Anne." Yes, you did win! Congratulations!

    In the spirit of Monday's SciFi...we have time traveled back in time to Saturday. How cool is that!

  14. I guess we are communicating psychically. I'm having some coffee and a couple of Neuman-O's cookies. Wish I was reading a good novel to go along with the snack!

  15. I'll do my best to distract Susan while you go swipe her Kathryn's Beach. Your High Tide is packaged and will go in tomorrow's mail. Best read them in order, I would think.
