Shortlisted: Better than Short-sheeted

So this is cool. MIDDLE OF SOMEWHERE has been shortlisted for Book of the Year by The Great Outdoors, UK's biggest adventure magazine.

How did THAT happen? I have no clue. Well, I have clues, but nothing solid. My husband, who is English, swears it wasn't him, and I suspect it probably took more than a single vote to get on the list. Maybe it was this article in the Huffington Post UK, on Five Books that Make You Want to Travel, written by a lovely young woman I met on Twitter. 

I meet everyone on Twitter. Except not my Englishman. 

If you'd like to vote for my book, I won't stop you. In fact, I will post some great photos as a thank you. Okay? Here is the link: VOTE HERE

Voted? Great. 

First photo. Me as Cleopatra. See? Aren't you glad you voted?

 A deer in the Sierra saying "WTF"?


And, finally, in honor of deer season, some dogs with very poor choice in headgear. 

I can't top that, at least not today. Time to get back to work on my revisions. Enjoy your day and thanks for voting! xo
