I’m guessing that you’ve heard the expression pay it forward. It’s used to describe a good deed that is repaid by doing a good deed for another or others. I love this warm and fuzzy concept.
Last week a friend passed on his copy of MOON OVER MANIFEST to me. This novel, by Clare Vanderpool, won the Newbery Award Medal this year. Since this surprise gift made my day, I’ve decided to pay it forward. If you leave a comment on my blog in the next week, I’ll put your name into a hat or basket or something. Next Wednesday morning, April 6th, I’ll pull out a name and that lucky winner will receive MOON OVER MANIFEST. Pay it forward, baby.
Also, many thanks to J.L. Campbell (http://thecharacterdepot.blogspot.com/)for the One Lovely Blog Award. So nice! However, I'm supposed to pass the award to fifteen other bloggers that I've newly discovered. Yikes! I've discovered a few awesome blogs lately, but honestly, it's been hard to find time to newly discover anything, much less fifteen other blogs. The work in progress is almost done, but has been pretty demanding and I've also been working on another novel. Plus promoting Dog Gone and Buck Fever. All good things, but time flies by. So, if you know of a great blog for me to check out, I'd be forever grateful to hear about it. In the meanwhile, check out J.L. Campbell's blog. Paying it forward!
