Is Mark McVeigh spectacular or what?


My plan was to wish you a spectacular weekend with this sunset photo I shot. I thought I'd write a haiku. But then Mark McVeigh shot my plan out of the water.
The fabulous editor with his new agency is offering a 15-minute chat with people who send ten new followers to his blog. How spectacular is that? Certainly right up there with sunsets.
So click on over, mention me if you like, and post the link yourselves. Please leave me a comment if you follow him so I can count you. I leave you with pretty skies and best wishes, as well.
Monday addendum: I've got my interview time with Mark! *gulp* But while I don't need anyone to follow him for me, there are other bloggers still looking for ten. So you could give someone a helping hand. And if you have any ideas for questions, leave them for me today. I'll probably think of the most important thing I need to ask after it's over. No, no. I'm a professional. *small squeek*

Okay!

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

I'm horrible at phone calls. Wonder if he'd accept a few email questions instead.

VR Barkowski said...

Breathtaking photo, Tricia. Just posted over on Mark's blog. We need to get you down for those ten new followers to his site so I can get my haiku fix. :)

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

Mentioned your name. Go get that phone call! Then tell me what he said. :)

Donna said...

We want haiku! We want haiku! (After your 15-minute chat with Mark, of course.)

Davin Malasarn said...

Does it work if I follow him for two different bloggers? If so, you can count me in!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Tere: Yay!

Karen: Send me your question! ;)

VR: Shucks, thx. Really, I sooo appreciate your comment.

Donna: Ha! I shall have to get busy.

Davin: Aww, you are so kind.

Anybody who follows Mark for me later today, I thank you in advance. I've got to go out for awhile. Have a great weekend.

Bish Denham said...

I became his follower and mentioned YOU as the reason.

Wen Prior said...

Me too, I just started following him and said you sent me there. Go Tricia!!! If you're short on questions, I'm sure I can come up with a few for you :D

Nisa said...

That is such a beautiful photo. Dusk and Dawn are my favorite times of the day.

Jemi Fraser said...

You can count me too :) Enjoy!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Thanks, Bish!

Wen: If I get one of those slots, I'll be glad to ask as many questions as I can. Tell me what you'd love to find out.

Nisa: Sometimes the sky does the most amazing things. I stare and stare (and shoot photos, of course).

Jemi: Thank you so much!

Your wish is . . . I'm following Mark McVeigh and I've said you sent me. Hope you get your 15 minutes. If so, tell us all, okay?

Sliding on the Edge said...

p.s. Here's my Mark McVeigh comment.

Hi! Several YA writers sent me over, but I'm finally following you on behalf of Tricia O'Brian. She craves 15 minutes and I'd like to see her have it.

Good luck, Tricia.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Thanks, Lee. Most appreciated. I just need ONE more person. And then I hope I don't panic if I get to chat with Mark.

Donna said...

Okay, Tricia, I'm in. Am I the 10th or do you still need another McVeigh follower?

Faith Imagined said...

Beautiful picture!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Donna: Thanks, yes, I still need one more.....

Welcome, Faith, and thank you.

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

OH!!! I saw others mentioning you when I went over there; I was sent by someone else first. Doh! But I hope you got your ten...if not perhaps we can bribe him with chocolate. It generally works for me ;)

(spectaulur photo, for sure, by the way)

rilla jaggia said...

That talk with Mark is in the bag! Great job. I hope you learn a ton, and let me know if you want to run some practice Skype sessions first :)
See ya soon.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Carolina: Chocolate. The answer to all problems. :D I did get the 10, though!

Rilla: Thanks so much. Have you been skyping lately?

Linda Kage said...

OK, I'm following him. Good luck on your interview.

Pat, count me in. I'll head over and follow. Good luck. =)

Mark McVeigh is going to be a very busy man! I've noticed a lot of bloggers gathering followers.

I hope the 15 minutes is fruitful! And don't worry, you'll ask the right questions.
