Winners!

Posted on: April 5, 2019

I wrote about my granddaughter’s pet boarding business here and here and asked for votes for her in the Best of Medicine Hat contest. I am pleased to announce that Aunty’s Place was voted best pet boarding in Medicine Hat for the second year in a row. A huge thanks to everyone who voted! She works so hard and cares so much for the pets in her care, she deserves this.

This is what was posted on Aunty’s Place Facebook Page

I could not wait to say a big “THANK YOU” to each and every one of you for voting us the BEST OF MEDICINE HAT in our pet boarding category!!
To be recognized for our hard work and endless love for what we do, by our home town of Medicine Hat has been overwhelmingly amazing! 

Taking care of pets fills our hearts full of love every day ❤️, but knowing that we have the support and recognition from our community is the icing on the cake!

To our community neighbours, pet care professionals, pet businesses, trainers, family members, our faithful clients, pet rescue workers, groomers, friends, and all of you who know that we just want what’s best for ALL pets…. Thank You SOOOO much for Voting for us in 2019!! 

With one of her happy customers

I also want to mention that my story Ghosts in the Attic won runner-up in Stevie Turner’s short story competition. Thank you for all the positive comments on that story. Here is the winning entry and all the others as well.

Stevie is running another competition this month. So why not send in a short story. Writing short stories is a great way to exercise those writing muscles. Here are the details.

I hope everyone is enjoying Spring wherever you are or Fall if in the Southern Hemisphere. You are all winners!

Thank you so much to everyone who entered the recent Amanda in New Mexico giveaway. And a huge thank you to all of you who shared and promoted it. It was fun and using Raflecopter made it very easy and fair. I was pleased that there were so many entries that I had Raflecopter pick two winners. So drum roll, please…

In Canada, picking a pumpkin is as important as picking a Christmas tree. The trick is to find a sincere pumpkin patch.

Book Launch

My husband Paul made the draw, and the winner of the blog book give-away is Donna McBroom-Theriot, a new subscriber. Read more about her on her hilarious blog http://mylife-in-stories.blogspot.com I am happy to know that Amanda is going to be read in Louisiana.

Reading

The launch for Amanda in Spain was a huge success. I want to thank the good folks at Albany Books for making me feel so at home in the bookstore. I also want to thank the many people who attended the book launch in body or in spirit. I am blown away by the love and support of my friends, colleagues, fellow writers and the community. I want to especially thank a special young lady, Aimee, a loyal Amanda fan, who gave a great description of the camels in the first book, Amanda in Arabia, to the audience. It was a perfect tie in to the second book. I may need to take her along to all my book readings.

Everyone who reads books is a winner in my estimation. If you read a good book, please tell your friends about it. Also, please support the local independent bookstores. I would hate to see them disappear.

I guess my next project is to finish writing the third adventure. I am currently working on Amanda in England-The Missing Novel. I better get writing!
