And The Award Goes To....

So many things to talk about, so little time.

I recently published another book (hoorah!) and I'm currently working 2 day jobs. I've been working for 2 weeks straight, no breaks and I'm working through the rest of this week. I seem to have come down with a cold and my son has decided to challenge my every parenting skill.

I worry every day about everything from moving in with my boyfriend to my son's success to my future as a writer. I should be sleeping right now, but instead I find myself reading one of my very good friend's manuscripts. She, Christy Brown, happens to be an amazing writer. I don't know if she realizes it or not but in all my years there have only been 2 authors that made me look forward to reading, she is one of them.

She recently accepted and won one of my challenges on Twitter. I challenged everyone to post their high school picture as their avi for a whole week. She was a brave soul! LOL!! And because of her bravery, everyone got to know her a little better and she won a free copy of my new paperback novel, 'Hostage'.  http://www.amazon.com/Hostage-Kara-Stefanowich/dp/1484926196/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1384831411&sr=8-1&keywords=Hostage+Stefanowich Congratulations!

Her first book was written rather quickly and might I add semi-inspired by yours truly. It's called 'Deathly Revenge' by Christina Brown. You can find it here: http://www.amazon.com/Deathly-Revenge-Christina-Brown-ebook/dp/B006KUVX46/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1384830937&sr=8-1&keywords=Christina+Brown+Deathly+revenge I encourage you to have a read. It truly does make you turn the page.

She is an amazing writer. I can't stress that enough. It pains me that she hasn't written more in all these years. I recently 'pressured' her to get me another manuscript and before I knew it, vwallah! There it was in my inbox. I printed it out and gave it it's own binder and everything. Now I'm wondering what to do. Should I just read it and tell her she did a wonderful job? Should I offer to help her publish it? What should one do when they see greatness and know it is something the world needs to see, but the creator waves it off as nothing more than scribblings?

I suppose I will simply do everything I can to support her, advise her and tell the world LOUDLY how wonderful she is, not only as a writer but as a person, too.

So solute Christy! Cheers to you my friend. I will tell the world, you are wonderful and talented and no one will ever say less. :)

I'm working on it dear!

So to you, Christy Brown, I award the 'BEST WRITING FRIEND' Award. Thank you for all your efforts, work, support and friendship. You deserve more......
