Surprise Results!

66 deg ~ full on sun...ah, the old smart phone predicts a high of 90 shocking degrees

So, on Sunday I thought all hope was lost and that I hadn't had any luck in the National Poetry Writing Month book giveaways.  It's just like me to jump to that kind of conclusion!

Sunday night, I was blog reading and Jessie Carty had added a new giveaway for the first comment on her blog that night.  Voila!  I was first and I am thrilled b/c I won a copy of her chapbook At the A & P Meridiem published by Pudding House Press. 

Then, wouldn't you know it, on Monday, I received an email from Victoria Chang naming me one of her winners (she went above and beyond the two book giveaway!)  I will be receiving Salvinia Molesta from Victoria.  Woo Hoo!

But wait, there's more, yesterday there was one more email.  This time from Jennifer Gresham letting me know I was a winner on her site as well.  I'll be looking for her chapbook Explaining Relativity to the Cat, along with the above books.

I know, I know, I have a problem with patience.  Here's the universe reminding me again that sometimes waiting is worth it!

I have one more day of grading today and student conferences tomorrow...oh and graduation next week, but soon, soon, I'll be free to dive eyeballs first into all the books I brought back from AWP and these new additions!

Life is good!
