Okay, because I enjoyed all your answers so much, I decided to give away one grand prize, the $10 gift card and two copies of one of my older releases. (If you have all my books, I'll substitute it with a copy of one of my writing buddies books.) The names went into a hat and the grand prize winner is: MsHellion
The two winners of my older releases are" Alyce and Mariska.
Please email me your addresses and choice of older release, at christie (at) christie-craig (dot) com
Thanks again to everyone who played along. Oh, don't forget to pop over to Novel talk Thursday (link is below) for a very funny post and a chance to win a copy of Divorced, Desperate and Deceived. And I'll be doing another giveaway next Tuesday. See ya!
Okay, I promised contests for the next few weeks to celebrate the release of Divorced, Desperate and Deceived, so here’s something a little different. Just for fun let’s answer some questions that might bring about some interesting/ telling and funny insights about ourselves. I’ll even go first. One lucky commenter will win a ten dollar gift card to Barnes & Noble. So make sure you post.
1) What’s the strangest thing you ever had take up residence in your purse?
CC’s Answer: A napkin-wrapped, shriveled-up pickle. (My grandma was the type who couldn’t leave anything at a restaurant, so she dropped it in my purse for safe keeping. Oh, it was safe. I found it about a month later.)
2) What’s the worst thing you ever did to your hair?
CC’s Answer: It’s a toss up. It was either let my mother highlight it or my friend cut it when we were four. (Both looked equally bad, although one was green and one left me with no bangs.)
3) What’s the first thing you notice about a man?
A: His eyes
B: His smile
C: His butt
D: Other (Tell me, tell me, tell me!)
CC’s Answer: His smile, shortly followed by his shoulders. I’m a shoulder girl. Can’t you tell that all my heroes have a nice set of shoulders to lean on?
4) If you had to leave one of these items at home, which would it be? Why?
A: Your Panties
B: Your shoes
C: Your phone
D: Your credit card
CC’s Answer: My phone. It’s the only thing I could borrow from a stranger if I needed it. (My first inclination was to say my panties. Seriously, who would know? But then, if it’s one of those bad-luck days, I’d get into an accident, like my mama always said I would if wore holey underwear. Notice bra was not one of the choices, because I would never, even consider going outside without my girls being supported.)
5) What do you think is the most important accessory for an outfit?
CC’s Answer: A feel-good attitude
6) What would you like the Gate Keeper in heaven to say to you as you enter?
CC’s Answer: You did exactly what you were supposed to do. By the way, we have a new typo-free computer waiting for you and your grandma is waiting for you with another pickle. (I always miss her at the holidays!)
7) Tell me two things about one of your most embarrassing moments?
CC’s Answer: The front seat of a car and a flashlight. (Yes, it’s probably what you think it is but, hey, I was married!)
8) What’s sexier to you:
a. A man who brings you flowers
b. A man who helps you with the dishes
c. A man who writes poetry
d. A man with an earring
CC’s Answer: A man who helps me with the dishes. (Hey, how many of you have read Weddings Can be Murder?)
9) If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be?
CC’s Answer: A beach house somewhere that the days are warm but not hot, and the nights are chilly but not cold.
10) What outfit do you feel expresses your style the most?
Answer: A comfortable pair of jeans, and a bright-colored blouse, and a blazer. If I’m at a conference I’ll be wearing a hat.
Okay, make sure you leave a comment to be entered in the contest. And answer a few of the questions. Let’s have some fun getting to know each other a little bit better.
Oh, and December 3rd I'll be over at http://novelthoughts.wordpress.com/. This post, Ten Things a Christie Craig Character Would Never Say, is must read guys. Plus I'm giving away book.
