An Empty Coast

An Empty Coast
My latest novel

Monday, March 23, 2009

Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of the Parky.

Did I use that line last year? Maybe.

Well, the news is in, Legion of Fans (LOF), I have made the FINALS OF THE SA BLOG AWARDS! I'm on the short list for Best Travel Blog for my Getaway Magazine blog.

I'm also pleased to report that your fellow followers Muriel and Juno have also been nominated, for their joint blog Salma-gundi (nominated for best original writing); and Juno for her breakout cookery blog, whatsforsupper (best food and wine blog). My good buddy the crabmommy has also scooped a nomination (best overseas SA Blog).

Thank you, all of you, who voted for me in the nomination round, but the bad news is I need you to waste more of your precious time by voting for me again, in this final round.

To do so, please scoot along to the SA Blog Awards website . To cast your vote scroll down through the list of categories until you find Best Travel Blog and click on my listing, which is a very long URL beginning with Getaway and ending, enigmatically, with tony%20park.

You may also wish to vote for Salma-gundi (best original writing), whatsforsupper (best food and wine) and the crabmommy (best overseas SA Blog).

After picking your choices (you don't need to make a pick from every category), scroll down, enter your email and verification code, and a message will be sent to your email. You'll then have to click on a link in the email (or copy and paste it into your internet browser). Yes, I know it's all a bit of a palava, but you will earn my undying gratitude.

Don't forget, if you vote for me and let me know about it, you're in the running for a bribe... errr, I mean, you go into the draw to win the TP book of your choice.

I thank you all. We will resume normal transmissions soon. Thanks for all the comments recently.

One would think a person who is requesting the enlistment of his LOFs to at least include one measly photograph would one not?
