Quick update on all the happenings this week:
Tuesday I participated in the Top Ten Tuesday meme -- this week's topic was Top Ten Character Names I Love and it was so fun seeing everyone's choices! Of course I could NOT make up my mind and also had to add random notes! (link)
Wednesday I was over at Operation Awesome talking about writers being mascots (link)... Here's a photo of my (now) 13 year-old a few days ago being a mascot on Tuesday:
My #JLBBirthdayBash ends tomorrow... if you haven't checked it out, it really is worth it (even if you do the free entries, that's one *click* for quite a few great things). Also, it's not up there, but both US and International winners will ALSO receive an eARC of my forthcoming IF I SPEAK TRUE (when it's ready in a couple of weeks)!!! (link)
Hafsah's Unbreathable (featured on both of the giveaways -- she's also my designer for like, everything) is now officially out... so even if you don't win either giveaway, her "race for earth" premise really is intriguing and I suggest you check it out (plus the whole good guy, bad guy thing... I tend to always go for the meanie *cough* ROWAN *cough* for some reason). You can find it HERE.
Thursday I had the pleasure of conducting my first "reader" interview with the lovely Kate Tilton, and the first part of it is featured HERE.
And today, well, today I am the big 3-5 and I am celebrating. So here's to another blessed year, to lots of virtual cookies and coffee being shared, and to many productive things and meeting even more friends. Happy Friday, guys!
