OMG – Joshilyn Jackson Just Posted This

Am floating around on a fluffy cloud of happiness.  One of my most favoritest authors (who also writes one of the most hysterically funny author blogs out there – Faster Than Kudzu) is being featured in a new Georgia Perimeter College advertising campaign, complete with MARTA bus signs.  She posted a contest.  The first blog follower to send her a picture of her ad on an actual bus would win a whole heap of lovely prizes. 

I won!!!  Here’s her post:  Trisha Slay is Awesome

Actually, the coolest prize of all is the fact that she put my full freaking name as a title on her blog.  WOO HOO!!!!! 

BTW – Joshilyn is going to be a featured author at the Dahlonega Literary Festival in November, along with some other FABULOUS authors.  I’m a volunteer for this festival (and even met my sweetheart there in 2009) so expect to hear more about this year’s festival and the associated publishing conference very soon.

  1. Very cool! My sister works for MARTA—in a trailer right in the middle of a huge parking lot full of buses. 🙂 But good for you for getting that picture. How did you manage?

    Thanks for the link to Faster Than Kudzu. I’d never been there. It looks like a great blog.

    • You know….it’s a bit of a story. I was checking out all of the buses that went past my office (not too far from GPC) but the only ads I saw were for fast food and one GPC ad featuring a sports guy. I was driving home that night (North on 400) and there was a bus in front of me. I tailed it into the Park & Ride lot at Mansell road (feeling utterly ridiculous) only to discover its ad was for Steak & Shake. I parked my car, called a friend I’ve been trying to reach, left a long message, then started to drive away when I noticed a new bus had arrived and was just sitting there perfectly lit up under a streetlight……and there was her ad. It was like a gift from heaven! And you know, I did something very brave and difficult for me. I told her she didn’t have to send me any prizes, I would prefer her professional opinion/advice on the first 15 pages of my fledgling novel. And she very graciously agreed! Even called to talk to me on the phone. It was SO AWESOME!!!! I almost wet my pants.
