More celebrations around the interwebz…


*** CONTEST CLOSED 7/9/2010***

First off, let me say a HUGE thank you to everyone in the interwebz for yesterday. Beng able to announce my second book deal was epic for me, and I am thrilled I got to share with all of you. It makes waiting to share OTHER cool news and waiting for find out still more news, that much easier.

We really do spend a lot of time waiting, don’t we….

Anyways, my celebrating hasn’t stopped, so I thought I’d share info on several FAB contests around the web before sharing info on mine (yes, told ya there would be a contest!)

So, here are the contests I entered this week. They all close next week sometime, so check them out…

Thanks again for helping me celebrate. July and Aug are fun, party months in my house and on my blog…so be sure to check back often throughout the summer as we celebrate book birthdays, happy news and each other’s journey towards publication.

Why July is AMAZING!


Happy July 1. You know, July is one of my fav months. Not only does the whole month just scream SUMMER…but there are other cool things happening this month too:

1) Registration for WriteOnCon is now open – go check it out! Register!!!

2) THE Teen’s B-day is at the end of the month – always a reason to celebrate.

3) Vacations (yep, I’m still in HI), camps (which means writing time for mom), and impromptu BBQs (love an excuse to enjoy life)

4) And finally – My HUGELY FANTASTIC REASON for loving July….
