Hooray for Stupid Thieves and an Interview!
First of all, I had the lovely experience of having my credit card info recently stolen.
Yes. That is sarcasm, served dry with a splash of bitters.
Anyway, the perp kindly left me an email trail (not smart) of the $3000 of stolen merchandise within minutes of the illegal activity.
And, the thief also ordered the ship-to-store option, which leaves out his/her personal address (smart) but then I would be the one to get notified when the merch arrives at the store (not so smart).
Needless to say, I canceled my card and reversed the charges fairly fast. And I only emitted one very high-pitched yelp in the process! So proud!
Did you see how many plot-holes were in this plan?
The thief was clearly NOT a writer.
Hooray and cheers to stupid thieves!
Okay, on to better and happier items.
Please take a moment to hop over to Laura's blog for this week's Sisterhood of the Traveling Blog post on how she goes about doing critiques!
Second, if you haven't had a chance, feel free to enter my 600's Followers Contest that ends on Friday.
And last but not least, Abby Minard is posting an Aspiring Author interview with me on her blog today. I get to discuss my writing process, Hobbits, Antarctica, and why sparkly vampires are doomed to defeat in a duel with wizards. Enjoy!
