Unclaimed prize — free book!

The March winner never claimed the prize. So Lucy Monroe’s Forbidden, The Billionaire’s Virgin Princess is up for grabs.

Why don’t people enter a contest and never claim the prize?

Losers snooze. I’ll pick a winner from those who comment on this blog on May 15.

Speaking engagement coming up

April 18, I’m the guest speaker at MORWA, St. Louis, MO chapter of Romance Writers of America. The meeting is at Barnes & Noble in Crestwood. Check the chapter’s website for guidelines about guest attendance.

This Old House …

needs a plumber.

I suffered through another plumbing near-disaster this morning with a spray faucet that wouldn’t shut off. It put me in an interesting dilemna as I was in the basement and the shut off is upstairs in the laundry room. The shuts off on this particular sink were frozen in open, and of course my pliers were in my toolbox — yep, upstairs.

No way could I let the hose go and dash up the stairs without flooding the place. (I also had Sam underfoot, uber curious over all the water.)


Thankfully my benchpress was close and I could just reach the weight discs. I pinned the hose down with them so the water would at least go down the drain instead of hosing down the ceiling, walls, furniture.

And then I made the mad dash upstairs to turn off the water supply.

This was not the way to start a Saturday.

After drying myself and my hair, I headed to the hardware store. Forty dollars later I had what was needed to either 1) fix the water problem or 2) create one helluva mess.

The luck of the Irish was with me, and ninety minutes and several skinned knuckles later, I had new washers in the faucett.

And the day ended great too, for I met friends for dinner. Amazing how good food, margaritas and laughs can lift the spirits. :)

March Newsletter – a snag in the works

Ahem! Well, I have tried to access my newsletter account host for three days, and I suspect that the host has gone out of business. Nice that they let me know! Not

So there won’t be a March newsletter. There IS a winner of the February contest.

Roberta J. aka house_mouse88 is the winner of Bachelor Boss by Christie Ridgway. Congrats! Roberta, please send me your mailing address via my contact form on my website.

The way I conduct future contests is up in the air right now. I’m weighing options — one of which is that readers of my blog will be entered in the monthly contests.

Whatcha think? Feel free to offer your suggestions on the blog, or drop me an email.
