Happy Mothers Day to all concerned, in particular my own mum back in Blighty, and most important of all, Senior Management, who's currently out in the backyard spying on the neighbors birdwatching with the new binoculars we bought her.

Puddle qualifiers
If you haven't already voted, there are still a few hours to go before the polls close on the qualifying rounds of the 2010 Meager Puddle of Limelight Awards for Best Flash Fiction Title.  You can find round one here, and round two here - polls close at 3:00pm today (US/Eastern) .

Linkage
I've started using Facebook and Twitter more often.  If you have accounts on either/both of those, please let me know and I'll add you to my flists there. 

Clever book trailers
I'd barely posted my own simple little book trailer for Fur-Face when my LJ friend, Maggie Stiefvater aka m_stiefvater goes and produces a superbly crafted stop animation movie to promote her new book, Linger. Some people are just too talented.


ETA: Ooh, I almost forgot.  I'm on Goodreads too, so let me know if you're on there as well.

Of course, you are aware that it is *not* mother's day in Blighty?

I am indeed, but I get bonus points for acknowledging Mummsie twice in the same year :)

If every day was Mother's Day, the world would be a safer, happier place ;)

Jon-- As I am a mom, I thank you! Also, I just sent you Facebook & Goodreads friends requests, and I am now following you on Twitter (where I had to shorten my name to kwnewton!).

So did I. I discovered a bunch of friends requests lurking when I did so, which shows how slack I am about these things.

Thanks for the wishes, and Happy Mother's Day wishes to your household too. Binoculars are so fun (and I DO mean for wildlife watching). :)

I'm on Facebook under Patricia Esposito, but I can message you there. There are a ton of Patricia Espositos!

Have a happy day!

This will be easy. I use the email address glyn.impress@charter.net for Facebook and Twitter. I just joined Goodreads using the same email address.

Re: Angels & Demons
I know he wrote if first, but I read Angels and Demons after The Da Vinci Code (which I enjoyed), but I think A & D is the better book.

shoebrera @ facebook. I think. It might be de_shoe, but I believe it's shoebrera. Anyway, glad to know I'll be seeing you there.

Mama always said to do the best I can, not to compare what I've done to another's achievements but to know the sense of achievement and triumph of doing my very best. May I suggest you apply her wisdom to thoughts of your trailer vs. anyone else's? Maybe then I won't miss her so much.
Fondly,
Deanna

Sorry, Deanna, I couldn't the Facebook search for 'de_shoe' and 'shoebrera' came up empty :(
