In honor of the upcoming fun at Authors After Dark, I’m doing a 30-Books-in-30-Days giveaway. Okay, really it’s so I can pare down my TBR pile. Open internationally, and the book is a mystery–I can only tell you it will be either UF, SF, Fantasy, YA paranormal, or PNR. If you win, you can give me a couple of genres and I’ll match them if I can but I”m a lot heavier on some genres than others. (I don’t have a lot of adult UF, in other words because there just isn’t much coming out anymore.)
All you have to do to enter is answer a question.
So, today is Teddy Bear Picnic Day. Early last century, a composer named John Walter Bratton wrote a song called “The Teddy Bears’ Picnic,” and some company decided to turn it into a holiday 20 or 30 years ago. News to me. Have you heard of it?
I had tea parties with dolls when I was a little girl, but I don’t recall any teddy bear picnics. What I DID have was a favorite stuffed animal. His name was Bimbo and he was a monkey. There is a photo of me on Christmas morning, walking around in my PJs with Bimbo and I look to be about four years old.
So, to enter for the giveaway, what was YOUR favorite stuffed animal as a child? I also had a teddy bear that I loved to death–literally. His arms came off and my mom threw him away without telling me. I cried for days and refused to have anything to do with the replacement bear my distraught parents gave me. LOL.
