Smithsonian American Indian Heritage Month!

My gosh, friends, it’s November! How did that happen?! When?! [Shut up – I know, but you know what I mean :P]

… Probably I shouldn’t be online >.> I’ve been causing trouble everywhere. But! I wanted to let you know what on earth this “SAIHM” you’d be seeing this month meant. I know some people might mistake it for “SAHM” which … sooo not the same thing. (SAHM = Stay At Home Mome. SAIHM = Smithsonian American Indian Heritage Month.) Hey – I don’t pick the names. The Smithsonian (I’d imagine) does. If not … is it wrong I don’t care too much because it is just what it is?

Also, you know, government … stuff.

ANYWAY. If you’d like to know more about this lovely Heritage Month this is the official government American Indian Heritage Month page. Which … is titled Native American Heritage Month.

And this is what it says on the Smithsonian page …

So yeah. Anyway! I just wanted to let you know what was up! >.> Especially since so many people still don’t know what “ALBTALBS” means… Or the name of this site… :X

I think you can imagine there aren’t that many Native American/American Indian romance writers or readers out there … so I’ve got a few people lined up, but if you are one, or know of anyone, I’d love to have them guest here! Please and thank you! 😀

I F*cked Up

You’ll have to forgive me. You’ll notice that Leslie Dicken has an awesome excerpt up at the blog today. You’ll also remember that Jackie Barbosa had just shared her exclusive excerpt last week. If you’re a regular, you might know that Teaser Tuesday happens every second, and fourth Tuesday of the month. It’s only the third Tuesday. We were actually supposed to have Nikki Duncan visit today. Ms. Duncan was very kind, and understanding, and was perfectly happy to have her post moved to next week. (I’m pretty sure she secretly thinks I’m an idiot of the highest order. But um, at least I’m something of the highest order? :X)

So… yeah. I messed up, and scheduled the wrong thing. Sorry. Had to own up to it.

But hey – we’ve got winners! That’s good, right?

From last week… the winner of a book by Jackie Barbosa is lucky #1 from randomizer.org – myrandaroyann please let me know via email which book and format you’d like and your requisite information by this Saturday, November 19th to claim your prize!
