Tinsel Tag

This year to celebrate the holidays,
I am trying out a new game. Everyone is welcome to play 2006 Tinsel Tag. The object of the game is to follow clues and answer questions through a maze of website pages until you reach the grand prize page.
The game begins after Thanksgiving and runs until Christmas.
The grand prize winner will be drawn from all qualified entries on the morning of December 25th and posted for that day. The winner will receive 5 L. Shannon ebooks of their choice, a $20.00 gift certificate to Cobblestone Press, 2 signed L. Shannon print books and more if I can think of ways to throw it in.
Don't delay! I will also be offering early bird prizes.
To play go to and follow the directions you find there.
(if you are already playing the game... you reached this page with a wrong answer, but don't give up. Just hit your back button and try again.)

Giving Thanks

This time of year, I can't help but take a moment to think about all I have to be grateful for and I have a ton of it. The biggest is of course the good health of my family and myself. This was a particularly hard year but well came through it mostly unscathed.

I'm also thankful to the supportive people in my life. Not al show it in the same ways, but most have some way of supporting me and my dreams. I know that my current dream of becoming a self sustaining writer is not one they all approve of but each of my loved ones has tried to understand it.

Ironically, I also thank my former boss, who "let me go". Without being set loose, I never would have put so much time and effort into my writing. I'm certain I wouldn't now have 6 books ePublished and available to the public and 2 more under contract.

I thank the writers and other professionals who have helped me to get those 8 books written, critiqued, edited, provided cover art, reviewed and promoted. And I thank the readers who have been so wonderful about sharing their kind thoughts and reviews.

As a thank you I will be offering a huge contest that will be starting this week and continue through December 25th. Watch for my next post about the contest titled TINSEL TAG.
