Other news: 
As you know, my suspense thriller BROKEN BUT NOT DEAD won the IPPY Silver Medal for Canada West – Best Regional Fiction. I’m happy to announce that my eBook, DEAD WITNESS is a finalist in the 2012 Global eBook Awards, under the Suspense Fiction category. 

July 12th and 13th, I’m helping children’s author, Carole Anne Carr, promote her new age 8+ mystery, FIRST WOLF. Hope you can stop by. 

You may have noticed my little Mickey Mouse promotional cartoon on the left? Truth is I love my followers and seeing their numbers grow gives me much happiness. Course, I can also hear my mother’s voice in my head saying something like, “Modesty is a virtue, Joylene. The Mouse is tacky.” I know, Mum, but ….” (head hanging low) “Go away, will ya.” If you’d like a similar widget, just click on it while you can and you’ll find a new page and numerous widgets to choose from. I can’t promise how long mine will be here.
A big THANK YOU to Cher Green for the Fabulous Blog Ribbon Award, which I will feature next week. Speaking of awards, you may have noticed I’ve removed all my awards on the right? It wasn’t an easy decision, I loved them, even though I could hear my mother whispering in my ear, “Joylene, remember it’s not ladylike to–” However, several of my readers emailed to say that my blog took too long to download and they final stopped visiting for that reason. Yikes!

Lastly, I went fishing on the weekend with my DH and sons. I’d love to post pictures of all the happy burnt faces but I’ve been ordered NO INTERNET PHOTOS MUM!!! So, I’m left with a quick note to say it was a wonderful day for all involved, except maybe for the fish.
ps. My mother actually never said anything to me about bragging. She, herself, never boasted about her abilities. Come to think of it, she only ever bragged about her children and grandchildren. So, maybe it was my grandmother whispering in my ear?

Which reminds me, our little man Blake got his first haircut!

Definitely lastly, a prayer to all those experiencing the terrible heatwave and fires across Colorado. Smoke settling on Cluculz Lake alerts us all to just how bad those fires are. Our thoughts are with you.
