I had the day off a work yesterday so I spent the day lolly-gagging about. Sleeping late (if you can consider 7:00AM late), watching down the DVR (Leverage, Rizzoli & Isles, and White Collar) and other miscellaneous activities. Exciting life I lead, I know.
But I received an unexpected surprise. I got a direct message from Kevin Guilfoile telling me that I won a prize. Which was more than a little surprising since I didn’t know I entered a contest. Earlier this month I started following him on twitter after Mo Ryan mentioned him and his book. He sounded interesting and I added the book to my Amazon wishlist. (It is like my giant TBR list.)
So I will soon be receiving his new novel, The Thousand, a gift pack from Field Notes, and a chapter that Guilfoile deleted from the final manuscript of his book and wrote into a Field Notes notebook along with some illustrations.
What a cool surprise.
