Summer Contests

I love winning prizes on book blogs. It’s so exciting to open my mailbox and see a perfect, book-sized package waiting for me. I’ve won a few this summer and it’s been so much fun! I’m like a little kid on Christmas morning opening my presents.

I wanted to say a big THANKS to the bloggers I received my most recent wins from:

Sheila @ Book Journey sent me this:

  And James @ Book Chic Club sent me this:


I can’t wait to read my new wins! 🙂

One last note – CONTEST ANNOUNCEMENT!!!! 

I will be hosting a series of contests for fabulous prizes starting in August. Stay tuned to find out the details and enter for your chance to win! 🙂

Huge TBR marathon

I signed up @ Bookworming in the 21st Century for the Huge TBR Marathon she’s hosting there. Very exciting!

I have a huge list of books needing to be read, which I will post soon have posted below.


Ex Machina #3 – Brian K. Vaughn

Ex Machina # 4 – Brian K. Vaughn

Mango Shaped Space – Wendy Mass

When I Was a Soldier – Valerie Zenatti

DK’s Strength Training

The Gardener – S.A. Bodeen

The Other Half of My Heart – Sundee T. Frazier

Whew! I better brew another pot of coffee with a list this long! 🙂

Well, I’ve learned a valuable lesson: Thinking I could participate in a Huge TBR readathon the same time I’ve set a self-imposed goal of completing the final revision of my book is not a great idea. In fact, it’s a very BAD idea. *sigh* I still read some of the books on my list, but sadly was way off my goal TBR reading mark.

Many thanks to Kristen @ Bookworming in the 21st Century for hosting such a great event! 🙂

Contest and Congratulations

A great big CONGRATS!!! to Beth Revis @ Writing It Out. She just sealed a deal with Razorbill/Penguin for her debut novel. Hooray! Her novel Across the Universe is due out Spring 2011. If that’s not exciting enough, she generously offered a sweet contest that consists of TWO prize packs – one for writers, one for readers. The swag is super cool – check out her blog to see what you can win.

Thanks, Beth, and Congratulations once again. 🙂 And make sure you include some stops in NYC on your book tour!
