2 Days before Thanksgiving and I'm in Africa

The Fabulosity Wendy is extending her feature on House of Diamonds to another day. Yay! She asked me some interesting questions and posted her interview on Fabulosity Reads.

Thanks, Wendy, for your support. Those of you looking for book reviewers, she is willing to do reviews in a variety of genres. Guidelines are on her blog.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US. Many thanks to my wonderful blogging friends for your support, friendship, comments, and general awesomeness!

I'll see you Friday with another visit on my House of Diamonds tour-- the wonderful Mason Canyon, who has two print copies to give away.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving, Karen!

    I will go over at Wendy's and Mason's now :)

  2. You can always take your books, and Thanksgiving, to Africa with you. Think of the Giraffability of inter-continental experience.

  3. Rob-bear, With a Kindle I can take thousands of books, right?
