Monday Morning Updates: Winners and Sinners!


1. First bit o' business....the winner of the Sweet Magik Giveaway. Congrats to ODDERIE (Audrey!)....you have won a copy of Sweet Magik and the cute holiday necklace! Yee haw! Merry Christmas to you from Oskar and all the Klaus Brothers!

2. Some good news.....Sweet Magik is on the bestseller list at Bookstrand.com for the Fairy Tales/Myths category. It also got another great review from Jen at Not Now....I'm Reading. She says..."I LOVED this story. It had a little bit of everything: action, adventure, mystery, romance and plenty of fan yourself moments....Most importantly, [Penny] infuses her stories with the things I think are the most important part of holiday spirit: family, love and friendship." Wow! What a great review....I am stoked! Happy Monday morning! (ETA: And another nice review from Tales Of Whimsy).

3. My daughter had her final soccer game of the season yesterday. After dancing on the field, chatting with her buds during the game, giggling after the ball bounced off her head, she finally found her mojo. She had 2 incredible shots on goal, was sprinting all over the field, and when another player was pushing her around, she threw her elbow and knocked the kid out of the way. Now THAT'S what I'm talking about! Proud Mommy Moment.

4. Finally....the "Sinners." As I perused the bestseller list at Bookstrand this weekend, I found a book that threw me for a loop. At first I thought it must be a typo. Then, I realized it was actually an "orgy-style" book? Not sure what term to use for this one exactly, but here's the category description....

MMMMMMM

That's right, folks. Seven! Count them, seven guys having an orgy. The book blurb includes the words "lush firm buttocks," "battle-hardened generals," and "riding crop." Needless to say, I was stymied. How could 7 guys get it on at the same time? Wouldn't some of the guys get bored waiting for their turn? Maybe they played with an ipod while waiting in line. Or talked sports. All I know is that one poor little sex slave could not possibly service 6 horny generals at the same time. And I have NO intention of reading this book to find out otherwise.

Well, I hope everyone has a great week!

OMG 7 guys! That seems a bit much. :)

Congrats to the winner and to you on the great review!

Don't ya love those precious mommy moments. They grow up too quick.

Happy Monday.

Thanks, Amber. My daughter looks like a wild child on the soccer field. She refuses to put her hair in a pony tail, so she has this huge mop of black hair flying around as she sprints on the field. Hee hee! She is nuts!

Don't look askance, I believe it is called a daisy chain, all oral or alternating up and down. Not that I would know -- just something I read long, long ago like 30 years. Those things stick in one's mind. Well not those "thing," but you know what I mean. Enough said. Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust

Penny, you are letting us down here. We count on you to read the books that would otherwise require us to scrub our eyeballs with bleach after finishing. I know what the real problem with the book is - I bet none of those guys have facial hair!

Penelope said...

Jen.....EVEN if those guys had facial hair....all seven of them.....um.....I lost my train of thought....oh yeah! even if all 7 of those horny guys had facial hair, I still would not read that book!....going to check and see if those guys have facial hair.......
