The Story of my getting Swag!



Once upon a time there was a writer who coveted the bling of other writers who so kindly sent bags of goodies to her door. She pouted and postured and then got her way. And it was further decided to set a budget for such bling as would help promote the writer in a similar way to her co-authors. Many ideas were pondered and poured over until a list was culled to what was deemed worthy. And then the orders were sent and received with as much fun fare as a Christmas wish list.


The mail was checked daily until the special day when the swag arrived in the wee town. Oh, but the oo’s and ah’s came fast and furious. Bling! Just what the author had ordered. And now she had something nice to bestow on readers and writers alike.


Thanks to Jude Johnson and J.A. Garland for the inspiration for this blog! And to my husband for putting up with the whining and helping pick out the swag. You’re the best!
