I suspect you guys have as much magic as the Publishing Fairy. Your efforts kept me from detonating, and now I have a new list of books to hunt for the next time I hit BAM. On the professional front, I also sold a novel today, and since it was the book I wrote during NaNoWriMo 2009, that was extra icing on the cake.
Meanwhile, the sparkly one just waved her wand over the magic hat, and the winner of the Zen Revenge giveaway is:
ClothDragon, who recommended Bridge of Birds by Barry Hughart (which I will track down and read, too.)
ClothDragon, when you have a chance please send your full name and ship-to info to LynnViehl@aol.com, and let me know which title you'd like for your BookWish. My thanks to everyone for joining in.
