Pixie Warrior is pick of the month!

One of the greatest joys of this blog is getting to know some very amazing people.

I first "met" Rachael de Vienne when she began commenting on my blog. I think her name was "War Dancing Pixie" which was instantly memorable of course, but it was her writing voice that kept my attention. I loved to read her comments. She was hilarious and insightful, and really really interesting.

Then it turned out she had this amazing goat. Bill E. Goat began appearing in the comments section too. And stories about Bill E.

If one can be smitten with a goat, well I am smitten with Bill.

Then Rachael wrote Pixie Warrior, and it was published by an electronic book publisher. One of the reasons to finally buy a Kindle was so I could buy it and read it. I did, and I'm now a member of Rachael-the-novelist's fan club, not just Rachael-the-goat-keeper, and Rachael-the-hilarious-albeit-typo-ridden-commenter fan club.

Today, I'm tickled pink to post the news that Pixie Warrior is a pick of the month over at The-Plot-Thickens.com

Congratulations Rachael!

Yay, Sha'el! Congrats!

(Not sure if previous try went through. If it did, please ignore... nah. I think it deserves to be said again, anyway!)

Taking a break from my WIp to say that is too cool!

OooOOOO how sweet of you. I thank you. Bill E. Goat thanks you, though he is so jealous he might faint. The cute French Alpine down the road is thankful, but only because it's distracted bill.

May your goats always have a hill of onions to nibble, or perch, upon.

OOps, I meant Rachael, not Rachel. Too much Sudafed. *blush*
