Psst...I've Got a Secret


Okay, not a secret really, but I do have something you really need to check out. My good friend Sharon over at Random Thoughts has lined up interviews with six successful authors (and who they are really is a secret!), and she'll be giving away signed copies of their books to a few lucky commenters. She posted her interview with American Girl Doll author Mary Casanova yesterday. Mary's a fascinating lady - you won't want to miss what she has to say.

And don't forget - only two days left to enter my contest! Due to overwhelming response (I'm up to 154 followers now - wow!) I've decided to add in another $10 book store gift card. If you haven't entered yet, please click here. I'm so thankful for all of you - old and new - and I can't wait to start drawing some names!

Happy Friday!

Just me rambling again to whoever wants to listen, but I just realized I can't end a comment without an exclamation mark. Hmmm...I'll have to try to restrain myself in the future. :)

Susan and Shannon--Thank you both so much...you brought tears to my eyes. Just so you both realize, I'm not good a sarcasm. Thank you, I really needed to hear I've mattered to someone. :)
