I don't know how I could have forgotten this, but I was reading the Harlequin Medical Romance blog before Christmas and they were talking about the different versions of The 12 Days of Christmas. In the comment section of their post, I sent them the Ukrainian version I used to hear on the radio while posted to CFB Cold Lake, Alberta. I wasn't thinking of a contest, I just wanted to let those international authors hear the version I like the best.
But, Lucy had a contest going and the process of picking my name as the winner is a phenomenal piece of writing the likes of which had me and my family getting twitches from laughing so hard. You can read it here: http://medicalromance.blogspot.com/2008/12/time-has-come.html
I'll quote Lucy here to tell you what my prize was:
"...I slowly unfold the tiny bit of paper and squint to focus my gaze on what has been written there... the person's name... the person whose name shall appear in one of Lucy Clark's Medical Romance novels is... Anita Mae Draper... congratulations Anita. If you'd like to email me privately...we can discuss this further."
Yippee!!!I've since emailed Lucy and we'll have to see what happens. I'll keep you informed.
