GRAND FINALE ~ Part Four (!!!!) Kim Vogel Sawyer!!!

I just sent off a mass of balloons (think the little old man in Up ;-)) and the confetti is drifting around the tables. And I'm laying out a few sweets and little snacky things for the rest of the day. So enjoy! You know in the historical days, parties would last all night long.

I figure I can at least throw a virtual party that can last as long as I want it too. It's an Open House! Come and go as you wish, just remember to stop by at THESE times and have you seen the other three interviews posted this morning? Here they are again: Rachel Van Dyken, MaryLu  Tyndall and Rosslyn Elliott.

And the times they posted:


3 a.m.

6 a.m.

9 a.m.

Posts still to come:

12 p.m.

3 p.m.

And NOW I've got a great guest for you today and I am so honored to have her here on my blog today. Kim Vogel Sawyer is one of my very favorite authors and I feel privedgeled to have met her at ACFW this year. is Kim!!

What is your most memorable party moment? 

Hubs pulled off the perfect surprise party for my 50th birthday. I love being "got"--and he got me but good. It was great!

Who’s on your personal VIP party guest list? 

Of course my family, which includes my church family, and my soul sisters--Kathy, Connie, Eileen, Margie--who all live too far away for day-to-day get-togethers.

Complete this thought: 

The perfect party isn’t perfect without: the peeps I love, lots of chocolate, and clusters of purple balloons. :o)

Oh we've got the balloons and I see a few purple ones in there just for you, Kim! :-)

Would you like to know what today's prize is? Kim is generously offering two copies of this novella collection...

Doesn't that just look like a novel to curl up with at the fireplace?
