Devon Monk author of Magic to the Bone is awesome. She is very talented and nice. although her first book is not my cup of tea. Anyone that can get a book out and get as much praise as she does, deserves to be called awesome. And do you know why??? Because as you know she helps run the blog/website Deadline Dames and on her first post she asked us to state our reasonable goals and unreasonable goals. Mine was to catalog one bookcase in my room by; series, author name, and genre, as my reasonable one. Catalog all bookcases in my house, (15 of them) by series, author name, and genre for my unreasonable goal. a few weeks later she wanted to thank the people who comment by sending them a little treat. That is a cover flat, a little letter, and a Japanese Kaeru frog sitting on a piece of paper. Here is what the frog means-
Kaeru means both "frog" and "return". Carried by a traveler out little frog brings wishes for a safe return home
-isn't that nice :-). The cover flat is like all other flats and the note is just a thank you. But when a author connects with fans this way it is special. Thanks Devon now I'll go to her blog to thank her.
