I belong to this wonderful group called the Writers Playground and mostly it's a group of twenty of my nearest and dearest writing friends. We're supportive and fun and playful and the group is overflowing with talent--Terri Garey, Kathleen Long, Tawny Weber, Stacey Kayne, Sheila Raye, Anna Sugden, Tammy Johnson, Lindsey Brookes, Cheryl Wilson, Beth Burgoon, the list goes on, but you get my drift! I sold to Harlequin Medicals in December and my pals sent me this really awesome Build a Bear named Dr. Matthew--bet you can't guess why they named him that? ;) And Dr. Matthew has this adorable medical kit with a stethoscope & blood pressure kit and syringe and thermometer. The kit id darling. AND they sent me a Cross pen engraved with my sale date and the book title. Have I ever mentioned that I have super, duper friends???? I do. They are totally amazing and never cease to fill my heart with love at their thoughtfulness. Isn't Dr. Matthew just huggable??? And surely if they couldn't send the real deal, this cuddly bear is the next best thing? Actually, my pal Tawny did sorta send me the real thing today, too. I posted below. SURF'S UP!
