My 2 Seconds of Fame...

So... the article about my "part time" blogging career ran in the local paper today!  It doesn't seem to be online yet, so this is the best I can do for now.  Thanks to Patti Ahern of the Southtown Star, and my wonderful readers for your continued support!

    1. Thanks so much, Ruth. The article was stuck in between advertisements for house siding, retirement homes, and cemetery plots, but I'll take whatever I get.

      Appreciate the kind words!

      ¡Muchas gracias!
            Fue divertido ver mi entrevista y fotos en la prensa. Ahora ... si un editor o editor, verían el artículo y decidir que me a un contrato con Random House deben firmar de inmediato que sería una niña feliz!
      Gracias por el apoyo. Nos vemos el sábado con un nuevo capítulo.

      Thanks so much!
      It was fun to see my interview and photo in print. Now...if only an editor, or publisher, would see the article and decide they must immediately sign me to a contract with Random House I'd be one happy girl!
      Thanks for the support. See you on Saturday with a new chapter.

    1. My dear, dear B,

      I blinked...and the two seconds were over! LOL Thank you for your support, and for allowing me to talk as if my characters are real people without deciding I'm nuts.
      Special hugs for the lovely quote in the article. I don't know if you can see it on the small photo, but they used yours to close the piece. I will send you a PDF.
      Kisses,

    1. Hi Maria!
      Thanks Maria. It is because of you, and all the other wonderful people around the globe, who spend their precious time coming back each week to read my humble literary endeavor. I am gratified, and truly blessed, that so many of you enjoy what I put out each week.

    1. So nice of you to say Jane, and much appreciated!

      I love these characters, and am thrilled to know that other people are fond of them as well. Great stuff coming up as I work like crazy to get Beckett and Maureen to the altar. Will they make it?

      I'm not telling... LOL

      Enjoy the rest of the week! New chapter on Saturday!

  6. That is some article! I can't wait to read it. Mine is just a little biddy snippet next to yours! That is so cool!! Please let me know when it's online. I'm just dying to read it.
    Congratulations!! Now many more people can get mad at Beckett. LOL!
    hugs♥,

    1. Thanks Caroline!

      But yours is in THE New York Times! The NYT trumps the Southtown Star any day...LOL I hope it ends up on line. Sometimes the human interest stories don't. But I have it in a PDF format I can send you if you're really interested.
      And Beckett...well.. he's quite a character. Somedays I love him, other days he's a total jerk. Sort of like real males. LOL He sure is hottie, though, and loads of fun to create.

      Thanks for the support!

    1. You are too kind Susan!
      I'm not really sure I'd use the term "celebrity"...I think probably 6 people read that article. (Okay...maybe 7! LOL) I will send you the PDF. Have your email in my address book.
      Thanks again for your support from the beginning. It makes me very happy to know people like my story and characters.
      Best wishes to you,
      Vicki
