I just posted a link to BOG Press on my blog: http://kcshaw.blogspot.com/2009/08/yay-for-olive-lemon.html. I hope you sell a trillion copies! :)

Aaron Polson said...

I posted, too, along with a lovely little recipe for lemon olive oil. Yum. (and of course I ordered my own copy)

Cheers!

Catherine J Gardner said...

Thank you both very much. :)

And thank you both very much too. :)

Hey, congrats! I posted about this on my blog. And of course I bought a copy too.

In my next e-mail to Dark Scribe, I'll add your chapbook onto the list of things I want to review for the site. I can only review what the editor okays, but I'll keep you updated.

Catherine J Gardner said...

Double thanks, Anthony.

Horror Girl said...

I of course posted on that blog of mine, and ordered a copy for meself. The cover of your chapbook really jazzes up my blog I think. Very pretty.

Congrats as always!

Catherine J Gardner said...

Thanks, Samantha.

Jamie Eyberg said...

Just ordered my copy. Can't wait to get it. (I think I am going to have to start a new bookshelf for book by friends if this keeps up, separate from my signed copies by people I don't know personally.) :)

Catherine J Gardner said...

Thanks, Jamie.

You already saw my pimp, but do not feel obliged to enter me, since I won your last awesome contest. My parrot, George Papageno, watches over my workspace now :D

Yay, we're the Olive Street Team!

Catherine J Gardner said...

And a beautiful pimp it was too.

Jodi Lee said...

Congratulations, Cate!

Alan W. Davidson said...

Cate, consider yourself (ie. your shapbook) pimped on my blog. My request is off to Nate Lambert for the cost of shipping to that other foreign country.

Danielle Ferries said...

Congrats! Am ordering a copy.

BT said...

Congrats, Cate. Glad to see it come to fruition.

I've pimped you but don't worry about entering me, postal costs to Australia are ridiculous.

I'm just happy Olive is out there.

Well done.

Catherine J Gardner said...

Thanks, Jodi.

You're a star, Alan.

:) Danielle

Postal costs to Australia are not ridiculous at all - especially when I have some free postage. :)

A happy hamster dance is in order! : )

Adam Blomquist said...

Just grabbed my copy. Very much looking forward to it.

I'll put up a post next time I'm not being a bum and actually writing a blog(soon).

Catherine J Gardner said...

Thanks, Adam.

Barry Napier said...

Very cool news. I'll be ordering my copy over lunch and you can look for blog-pimpage within the next day or two!

Awesome news indeed! Congrats!

Catherine J Gardner said...

Thanks, Barry.

ElanaJ said...

I'm new here and your blog is fantastic! Congrats on the new book!

Catherine J Gardner said...

Thanks, Elana. I'm actually a frequent visitor over at your blog.

Jeremy D Brooks said...

Within the last hour I just received and devoured Olive Lemon.

Seriously, Cate, this is a brilliant story. God, what I wouldn't give for your imagination. Fantastic job...nothing but good can come of this for your writing career.

By the way, my next band name: The Unfortunate Goatees.

Catherine J Gardner said...

Jumps up and down in her seat and electronically hugs Jeremy.

Jameson T. Caine said...

I'll echo Jeremy's sentiments. This story was just pure awesomeness. This is the kind of thing your devout fans will be clamoring to find in ten years time. I'll just wave my copy at them and laugh. :)

Catherine J Gardner said...

You are beyond fantastic.

Cate Gardner said...

The winners are:

First prize - Natalie L Sin who wins a jigsaw and a poster.
