A Tale of Two Blogs

So the problem with blogging on two blogs is that when I have an idea, which happens about once a week, I blog about it on my other blog. You know, the one where people count on me to post every Monday. Of course, I could say something like: If you want to read about my son's angry rant this weekend, you can read it here.

However, I won't. Wait, I just did. Oh well.

Instead, I will write about boys. You would think that being out of the dating arena, it's about the farthest thing from my mind. However, my sister is visiting me right now. And she's beautiful. And she's smart. And she's single. And we talk about her dating life...so today, I don't like boys. I don't heart them. At all. Fie upon you, boys. Fie. Fie. And that is it.

(Well that just sounded like my own angry rant. Like mother, like son.)

I Do Not Like Them Sam I Am

As you can probably tell by the title, this post is about a book deal, a contest, and a good cause. (Well, it's obvious, isn't it?)

First in line (and I know I'm a little late to the announcing game)...Kasie West, one of my first blogger friends and the best nemesis a girl can have, has a two-book deal with HarperTeen!!! She signed with her agent, Michelle Wolfson, only three months ago and already has a book deal. And with HarperTeen!!! (But I think I already mentioned that.)

Also, the MMW Totally Cliche Contest is winding to a close. You still have until May 31 to submit your Totally Cliche short story for our e-book anthology. You can find more details, such as prizes!, by clicking the button on my sidebar.

AND...to close on a sad but hopeful note: MMW and author Cheri Chesley is donating all her royalties made on her e-books (Peasant Queen, Wild Queen, and Ghost Bride) through August 31 to a friend recently diagnosed with cancer. I am very excited to read Peasant Queen, and what better motive than to help someone out? See here for more details.

Have great weekend :)

Somebody Interviewed Me! And I Have A New Laptop!

Every Thursday Chantele Sedgwick interviews aspiring authors. I love that--because most of us are aspiring and at a very similar place in this journey! So, today I am the aspiring author. I'm also a prespiring author because it's HOT in Texas. (That may or may not have been a good joke. I haven't decided yet.)

And since my title left no secrets, my husband came home yesterday with an early birthday present! I feel complete again.

Next day's update: Well, many of you were affected by Thursday's blogger malfunction. Blogger ate this post and then reposted it WITHOUT the comments. Which is a shame because comments are the best part. What is even SADDER is my interview was eaten, but I promise I didn't make it up. No, really. Somebody really did think I was important. Really.
