|First Loves Blogfest hosted by Alex Cavanaugh|
Ignore the date...
Maybe I'm taking my chillin' challenge for May too literally, keep missing deadlines. Here is one blogfest I meant to take part in, the First Loves Blogfest. My first loves are:
I don't remember which movie I loved first, but I do remember the first one that made me cry:
After the Disney album of Bambi, I fell in love with the songs from this hunky dude. At 14 I swore I'd marry him! My friends thought it was creepy 'cause he was all like old and stuff. My first song I loved was Coward of the County - but the one below became one of my favourites.
I was reading before I started school, so I can't even remember which book I loved first, but two stand out:
Still a favourite, and sits on display on a little shelf I have halfway up the stairs.
But when I was eleven, I read this book (Mum had no idea what it was about until she saw the mini-series...)
Ugh! This one's shameful to remember. Stephen Joseph Abbot - I met him when I first moved to the Gold Coast and I followed him around like a puppy. I would even ride my bike past his house at night and just watch the family interact through their window (oh oh, did I say too much?). I threw myself at his stonewash jeans and vinyl velcro shoes! I even wrote him 'anonymous' poetry (yeah, like who else would it be from?). Give him his due, although good old Abby was a bit sleazy with the girls, he only ever treated me like a little sister and saved my virtue many times.
Now, let us never speak of it again!
This is my more current love interest, which is convenient, seeing as he's also my husband and father to my children... we met at the Department of Environment and on a work night out he sang a Kenny Rogers song to me... that'll do it!
But wait there's more...
This weak I had the privilege of being a RAOK recipient (Random Acts Of Kindness). I was gifted a critique from Lynda Young at WIP It.
To commemorate the release of their book The Emotion Thesaurus, Becca and Angela at The Bookshelf Muse are hosting a titanic Random Act of Kindness BLITZ.
I tried to pick a candidate to pass this onto, I really did. But every time I'd visit one they seemed to already be 'RAOKed'. So I decided to dedicate this to anyone who would like it. And your gift?
If there is anyone out there who does not already have a copy of my book MY ZOMBIE DOG, then leave your email in a comment, and I'll send you the Kindle book FREE. Got a friend who'd like it? That's fine, send their email through and I'll send them one too. I'll leave this offer up until my next blog post goes up, so you have a day or two. If you don't like to show your email, you can just email it to me instead at firstname.lastname@example.org
And feel free to tweet and share this, I don't mind how many copies I give away :)
