And the winner is. . .

Thursday, September 24, 2009 Who won the book, Lizard Love?

Wendy and I met for tea in the charming Cafe Divine on the Delaware River in Callicoon, NY. We came to talk shop, and for Wendy to pick a name written on a green slip of paper out of my straw hillbilly hat. Ten readers posted comments on FB, direct e-mail, or right here on my blog. Some of you posted two, so you got two chances to win. Thank you all for participating. It was an exciting moment when Wendy pulled a name out of the hat! And the winner is. . .
Kathleen Taylor

Barbaranne also sent me this comment via e-mail: "This by far [post of Wendy's writing wisdom] resonated most deeply within me. I found this section to be most encouraging. Thank you, Ms. Townsend, for your willingness to "write the bones".

Thank you again, Wendy, for being so generous with your time.

Coming up next is the author interview with picture book author, Kay Winters, and a chance for three of you to win an autographed book! Check back October 1st for details.


  1. Wow! Thank you Clara and Wendy! What a pleasure to have won your book, Wendy, and I cannot wait to read it. I enjoyed your thoughts and comments about writing. I really love Brenda Ueland's book, If You Want to Write, as well and read it every so often for encouragement. Believe me, I need it!
    Thanks, again...and welcome to all new members!
