After posting here, on FB and sending two email, it seems the winner for the Second Place Prize in The Barrow Lover Celtic Stained Glass Giveaway remains incommunicado. So the magic D20 has spoken again…

If so inclined, will Monsieur Carver contact me with his shipping details?

Once again, a thousand thanks to everyone who participated, sent encouraging emails, threw FB Likes my way, all that jazz. Your support for my work means more than I can express.

*How were the names determined? I sorted the Amazon reviews by most recent, rolled a D20 (of course I did. I’m a gamer) and counted back to the appropriate review. Simple.

The Barrow Lover Stained Glass Giveaway (hereafter known as TBLSGG) winners will be drawn April 30th.

This contest is open to anyone in the ConUS.* To enter, simply fire off a quick, honest review of TBL at Amazon and your name will be added to the pool. If your name is drawn on that fateful day, and you respond with mailing specifics, I’ll mail you one of three Celtic stained glass panels, free of charge.

No, I won’t sell your personal info or spam you with sage writing advice and witty anecdotes. This is my way of combining my two vocations and showing appreciation to those who support my writing. I’m genuinely grateful. It’s that simple.

Thank you and have a great weekend.

(That’s a picture of the Second place panel, btw)

* apologies to overseas readers. Not to limit my gratitude but out-of-country crating and shipping is simply too expensive.)

Give blood – Work at a glass shop

Writing fiction is a full-time vocation jammed into part-time schedule. Glass work is my full-time job. Some days it strikes me how incredibly fortunate I am – blessed even – to make a living in the arts. Occasional slices, client aggravations, and heat-cracks aside, this is a good gig.

Here’s some shots of my studio.

Remember: It’s not a real project until you’ve given blood.

Thanks all. Enjoy your day.

Finally! (Stained Glass Related)

Pictures of the large panel I constructed for the new dorm at St. Mark’s Prep. Measures approx six feet wide by five feet tall, set in a custom mahogany frame. Seeing the panel installed, back-lit, in context with the space always makes for better pictures.
