  1. I'm laughing at the blank Seekerville Sightings because I thought... what can I put in there this week, and the big fat ZERO said nothing... because I'm in the thick of writing, planting and puppies and I wasn't sure how that all relates... and yet I might put in a gratuitous adorable puppy pic next weekend because all y'all (which is the same as "the lot o' youse", only in Southern vs. Yankee speak) know how much fun puppies are!

  2. I'm agreeing with Ruthy...and on a book deadline so I didn't post anything! Now I'm heading back to Mountain Loft and my Amish characters...

    Enjoy the weekend!

  3. I won a Winnie book!
    I was impressed with Tim Shoemaker and his response to my post. You guys know me and I guess I expect you to care, but I was surprised that a guest blogger took that much time to respond. Good call on having him here.
    Looks like a great week ahead and I will try to be along for as much as I can.

    1. I agree, Kathy. He wrote a very thoughtful reply. Hopefully he will be back again sometime.

  4. Thanks for the win. Another great week at Seekerville is in the books (pun intended) LOL Have a great weekend, everyone!

  5. I'm excited to win a book from Winnie. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I am off soon to work at the bookstore. Today we have about 14 local authors coming for a book signing. It will be a fun event.
