Since it's a Monday and we do Monday Mealtime Madness posts here at erica and christy, we didn't want to disappoint you. MY FATHER-IN-LAW IS A CHEESEMAKER. Yes, I live in WI. What's really funny is erica owns cows. Could we be any more Wisconsin-y?
Anyways.... Springside Cheese's website went live! Yes, it's up and running. I'm totally not being biased when I declare to you that my father-in-law makes the BEST cheese. I'd love for you all to order it, have it shipped to your house, and try it. AND NOW YOU CAN! (US only. Sorry!)
Here's the site:
OH! And if you choose to check it out, like what you see, and place an order for some delicious cheese products, then add in the NOTES section (when you check out on the site) that you were sent to the site by erica and christy. Along with your order, you'll receive a FREE order of squeaky cheese curds. BUT THIS OFFER ONLY STANDS FOR THE FIRST TEN erica and christy CUSTOMERS!
FIRST, I haven't taken a moment to CONGRATULATE my amazingly talented blog partner on her recent achievement in passing through the first round cuts for ABNA! She is so deserving and I am so happy for her! I'm wishing awesomeness for her and our other friends (mentioned on Friday's post) who also made it to Round 2!
NEXT, thanks to Heather @ Heather's Odyssey, I learned of another contest: Gatekeepers Discovery Writing Award.
I posted an excerpt of my novel, Solstice under my pen name Lynnea West. If you have a chance, I'd love for you to check it out here and offer any feedback you may have. If you like it, please vote. The top 100 entries (YA only) with the most votes on March 30 will have their pages read by Gatekeepers Post staff. They will make their selections for round two, passing the entries on to top agents and editors (visit the site to find out the list of names). Oh, and the winner at the end of round three wins $500. To read and vote for Heather's entry, go here.
Have you ever thought what it'd be like to actually meet each other? You know, like if all of us blogging friends were actually together, in real life, not just hanging out chatting virually every day? Su @ Cheekyness had a great idea in her comments recently for us all to meet up at Blade since I mentioned it in my post last Thursday. I couldn't agree more that it would be a surreal experience. Maybe someday we all will!
While I won't be able to visit Blade any time soon, I am going to Florida at the same time Michael @ In Time will be there. So Hubby and I are going to meet up with him. Yay!
AND, erica and I just discovered a Writing Conference in WISCONSIN. So...we might GO and MEET EACH OTHER! Here's the goods on the conference in case any of you want to join us!!!!!
HAVE A MARVELOUS MONDAY!
Not sure how to spend it? Recap: order cheese, read solstice/vote, register for WI writing conference
OOH! AND THERE'S A WRITEONCON CHAT TONIGHT! GO HERE!
