Premio Dardos means prize darts in Italian...
Special thanks to for the Award below....I appreciate her noticing and selecting the The Black Sheep Dances.  Be sure to check out her blog for great reviews and some very well-read (and well-fed) cats.

Now I'd love to pass the award on to some of my favorite blogs for their worldwide exposure to unusual books and authors.

One other small item I forgot from last week:  The random drawing for The Language of Secrets selected Linda Henderson as the winner and I've know given the publicist her address to receive it.  Next giveaway coming soon!  I promise an international one this time!

For some great photography, check out the blog for  I reviewed his book Skip a few months ago, and his blog features updates of photos that specialize in unique views of water, light, clouds, and faces.  Great stuff!
