RAOK - Susanne Drazic Appreciated

Not too long ago, Susanne honored me with a Random Acts of Kindness blog posting, introducing me to her blog followers. Since then, I've been trying to think of a way to honor her for being a true follower of my blog. So without her knowledge, I'm featuring Susanne in this blog posting.

What I know about Susanne: She lives in Michigan. She is a writer of YA/MG/Tween stories but has yet to brag about any of her writing per se. She participates in NaNo (National Novel Writing Month) and has been a winner at least two years now. She is working her way towards publication. Susanne does book reviews and follows a good many writers' blogs and comments on said blogs. She has been pretty consistent commenting on my blog. We've even exchanged mailing addresses and have sent each other goodies (she was cleaning out her craft supplies and sent me a bunch of wiggly eyes for my bookworms).

So, what can I do to honor her? What should I give her as a gift of appreciation? I'm open to ideas. Maybe I'll print up a wonderful certificate and send that to her, but again, I'll consider other suggestions (all within reason, of course).

If you would like to learn a little more about Susanne and the folks she follows and who follow her, stop by her blog and read some of her featured guests or book reviews; check out some of the blog awards bestowed on her.

Susanne, I really appreciate you being a true follower and leaving comments on my blog. I hope this honor makes your day and that you smile big all the day through. See you all in the postings - E :)

Elysabeth, what a fabulous idea! When I did stamping (for greeting cards, not as in a zulu dance!) we often sent RAKs to people. I LOVE what you've done here, and I would like to propose we do more of this sort of thing on vbt. I'll write and suggest it. Way to go!
