Blog News!

In no order what's so ever.
Congratuations to Alicia the winner of the first line contest!! 
With 46% of the vote her first line was "The infestation started the month prior."   YAY you!

My blog hit 100 followers!!! WOOT--- doing a little dance of awesomeness right now.  Thanks James  Garcia Jr. for being my 100 follower.  

I won't be doing a contest for it because there's like a BILLION contests going on right now.  My birthday is coming up in about a month, so maybe I'll do a contest for that. 

Did you sign up for the 99 Blogfest?  Go forth and do it.

Other contests:

YA Highway is doing a SUPER AWESOME giveaway
They are giving away 5 sets of two arcs... 
All you have to do is tell them why libraries are awesome.. which should be a no brainer.

Kirsten Hubbard is giving away a copy of Delirium by Lauren Oliver!  I am dying to read this one. 

Shelli (srjohannes) is paying it forward-- you submit your pitch to her and she will pick the best one and send it to her agent... awesomeness. 

And as you know by now I sort of have a literary crush on Brendan Halpin and he has a new book out.  He's doing another contest... take a picture of yourself holding his book and post it on his facebook. 

There's SO many cool things happening in the literary world right now.

Maybe I should finish blogging and get working on my book so I can join in on the fun...
