Day Three: My Orchid Gets a Name And I Talk Golden-Era Detectives
Good Morning, all of you!
First of all, I would like to point out that The Inkpen Authoress now has 222 followers. I dare one of you to break that amazingly round and scrumptious number and set me racing for a new, equally symmetrical goal. I also have another announcement that will make those of you who have already entered the giveaway squiggle with joy: in the rush of my wedding-befogged brain, I forgot one of the prizes in the giveaway. The winner of the Cozy Quagmire Party Pack will also receive five handmade bookmarks from Infinity Designs. Each bookmark will have a quote from Anon, Sir, Anon hand selected by its authoress to give you a one-of-a-kind gift. So yes, Virginia, you ought to enter the giveaway.
I have decided to name my orchid Veronica-Millicent-Agnes-and-Jane. Can anyone tell me that reference? Yes? No? (Very good, Dicky!) I am pleased with this name. I just thought of it and it fits the plant. I hope it eats its ice cubes like a good child and isn't a picky eater. I don't know what else it could eat if it was. Has anyone here bought Anon, Sir, Anonyet? If you have, would you mind doing something for me? Go to Goodreads and shelf it under "cozy mystery," "mystery," or "historical?" I recently learned that the book will show up closer and closer to the top of each category the more readers shelf the book there.
I'm Rachel Heffington; in varying degress, that will mean a dreamer, a writer, a people-lover, and a great many other things. I write chiefly because I read, and I read chiefly because the love of Story is writ on my soul and I cannot escape it. I hope I can inspire readers with an ache for that one Story of which we are each a part. I released my debut novel, Fly Away Home (available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble online) in February, 2014, and my short Cinderella retelling (The Windy Side of Care) is scheduled to be released in the Five Glass Slippers collection published by Rooglewood Press in June.
I am so pleased to make your acquaintance; do stick around and partake in the whimsy!
