Friday Spotlight: Leah Braemel


One of the first questions I was asked after receiving “the email” for my first story Private Property was “what did I do to celebrate?” Immediately after reading the email, I proceeded to do what my husband now refers to as the “Price is Right” bounce. I bounced all the way downstairs to shout the good news to my children who high-fived me. I bounced all the way back upstairs and phoned my critique partner who has encouraged me for years to give her the good news. This was such good news, I needed to hear her voice. I don’t think I remembered how to breathe for another hour and a half.

It was very unusual behaviour for a usually staid Canadian woman who is approaching a milestone birthday this year. Ugh. It’s the first time I’ve not wanted to celebrate my birthday. Which is why it’s so surprising to me that I’ve arranged a huge birthday bash on my blog. I guess I figured I might as well do something positive, so I’ve decided to give my blog readers a chance to celebrate for the entire month of July. I’ve invited 30 authors to help me celebrate my birthday, many of them will be hosting their own contests, offering free books to commenters. Everyone leaving a comment throughout the month will also be eligible for contests I’ll be running each week and at the end of the month.

Come help me celebrate my birthday by visiting my “Birthday Bash” on my blog and be sure to leave a comment in order to be eligible. Maybe by the end of July, you’ll be doing your own ‘Price is Right’ bounce.

  1. Hi Leah, I’ve been checking out your blog this week and have added some new titles to my wish list.

    Thanks for sharing your birthday with us.

  2. I enjoy having a destination on the web everyday and have been enjoying the blog posts.

  3. Happy Birthday Leah! Let me guess – the big 21? Oh, ok 22! I’ve made it over a couple of times. Not as many as I’d like.
