Contest Winner and New Interview Up


Oh, hi there!

What can I do you for? We've got some lovely coffee made, why not sit for a spell and chat. Nice weather we're having. Isn't the latest movie divine? My local sports teams beats your local sports team.


You're waiting for something?

You're waiting for some news?

Some news about who won the Adventurous Contest?

Why don't we dish about the latest hot topic? Dissect some Puritan literature? Compose complicated sonnets?

No? You just want to find out who won the Adventurous Contest?

*huffs* Fine.

Well, after countless hours of carefully tabulated research counting up the entries and entering it into

The winner is....

Congrats, Melissa! *throws confetti around* Send me your address, and you'll get the signed ARC and a special little something-something from NYC in the mail!

Didn't win? NEVER FEAR. I'm going to be holding another contest in November, and another one in December AND another one in January. AND THEY ALL GET PROGRESSIVELY MORE AWESOME. Seriously. I've got SO many awesome people helping out with November's contest your mind, it will be blown. And as for December? It's so epic that I'm a little nervous about pulling it off. And January? Holy cow. I want the prize for January!!

So, yeah: don't worry about not winning this time! It can only get better ;)

Finally, make sure you check out The Scibbler's Cove. This awesome new site is all about helping writers and commiserating about the craft, and today, they interviewed me! Rebecca's questions were really interesting--one of my answers (the one to the question about what's surprised me since getting the call) wasn't something I expected...but when I really thought about it, I realized it was the truth.

This was honestly one of the best contests I had ever been apart of! Though I'm upset (only natural) I can congrulate Melissa! I'm not that sore of a loser!
