So what else is there to do but have a giveaway? Hurray! *throws confetti* One lucky commenter will win a copy of The Truth About Letting Go, just let me know in the comments you're interested, and leave me a way to contact you.
Last day to enter is March. 24, and I'll post the winner on Monday, March 25th. Best of luck!
In the mean time, since I already interviewed Leigh HERE, I let my 3-year-old do the honors to give you a fresh perspective on this amazing author. :)
Girlie, take it away!
Girlie: What is your favorite color? Mine is pink.
Leigh: I'm imagining us sitting at a little white tea table with a few stuffed animals joining us. I'm very big, and I've got my pink boa and tiara on...
(sips tea) I like pink, too. When I was little, purple was my favorite color, though. You can be Pinkalicious and I can be Purpleicious. Is that OK?
Girlie: Will you sing me a song? OR Dance with me! I like being a ballerina. How do you like to dance?
Leigh: I don't dance super well. My dancing takes special medicine, otherwise I look like Kookoo the Bird Lady from Freaks.
Girlie: Let's play magic wands! Mine turns people into stones. What does yours do?
Leigh: Stones! Goodness.
Me: Yup, it's true! I've totally been turned into a stone like 4 times just in the past week. Crazy.
Leigh: Did I mention I really like this tea? And that's a lovely dress you're wearing. Umm... what if my wand turns people into fairies? That's fun, huh?
Me: If I don't hear from you in a while, I'll confiscate Girlie's wand. See if I can figure out the reverse spell! ;)
Girlie: If I'm the princess, what does that make you?
Leigh:I guess I'd have to be either one of those little birds that help you get dressed or a mouse... I'm glad I'm not the step-mom or anything. They're always bad.
Girlie: I like to cut things up and play with glue. What do you like to do?
Leigh: You know what's fun to do with glue? Put squiggly shapes on construction paper and then dump a bunch of glitter on it and shake it around. It's real, real messy. Ask your mom to show you how to do this... LOL! :D
Me: Um, thanks a LOT!
Girlie: I can write the letter K. What can you write?
Leigh: Now that I'm big, I can write most of my letters. But you know which one I still can't write? Cursive Q. That's hard for me. Oh, and cursive Z. You'll probably do those really well. I still have to make those in print.
Me: Okay, I have to intervene, because this is my blog after all. Last question:
What would Ashley's personalized license plate be? Colt's? Jordan's? 8 letters for each. Go!
Leigh: You know I HATE this!!!
Me: Bwah ha ha! I am evil incarnate. :)
Leigh: I'm not good w/personalized plates. Urgh... umm... do they have to be 8 letters?
Me: Okay, okay, you have UP TO 8 letters.
Leigh: OK, here goes...
Ashley would be REBLREBL (I'm thinking "Rebel Rebel"--like the David Bowie song... does this look like Robble Robble?)
Jordan would be HAVEF8TH (That's not very good. I know.)
Colt would be L8TRDUDE (OK, his would be cooler than that, but I actually knew a guy who's plate was that... LOL!)
Me:Awesome plates! REBLREBL totally came across right. :) Now aren't you all wishing you could sit down to a tea party with Leigh, wearing a pink boa and a tiara? I know I am!!
Thanks for visiting with us, Leigh! And the rest of ya'll, don't forget to mention in the comments if you want a chance to win Leigh's latest.
