Happy Monday! I missed posting my regular mash-up last week, so today’s makes up for that. And I’ve got some SNOOPY-DANCE-‘O-JOY! news on the Thriller-icity front. LOST AND FOUND has been reviewed by Midwest Book Review, here. The pertinent line that I want to spray paint on the side of my car and drive around town says,
“”Lost and Found” is a fine addition to thriller collections with a family focus.”
YEEE-HAW! If you’re so inclined to check out other reviews and maybe-sorta-kinda (gulp) tell others about the book, click on the cover above and share the link. I know most of y’all have already had plenty of opportunity to do so, several have reviewed the book, and I’m truly grateful.
Monday Mentions is the mash-up-day of all the neato-torpedo writer links and videos, pet schtuff and bling and writer-icity crappiocca collected over the past week. Lots of contests today for cat videos, best veterinarian, dog heroes and pet blogs so be sure to enter and/or nominate your favs. For new followers to the blog, welcome! and you can expect more cat and dog specific schtuff later in the week on Wednesday and Friday.
