What am I doing to celebrate, you ask? Well, tonight my family is taking me here for dinner. And yes, I fully intend to have this for dessert:
I have a present waiting for me already on the kitchen counter, but like a good little girl, I haven't peeked. Yet.
Otherwise, I will spend some of my morning working out, and then the rest of my morning writing. As for the afternoon - maybe I will splurge and spend it reading!!
Most importantly, because it's my birthday, I've decided to give away a book in three different places - my personal blog, the Author2Author blog, and twitter. Enter to win in all three places if you'd like - I don't mind at all!! You know, because they say it's much more fun to give than to receive!
Okay, I admit, there's another reason. I'm trying to get people to get over their fear of reading a novel-in-verse. It makes me very sad when I hear someone is afraid to try it. You don't want me to be sad on my birthday, right?
See, there is nothing to fear, I promise! There are characters you can relate to. There is a story that will keep you turning the pages. It may be told in a bit different format and somewhat poetic, which in my books helps bring out the emotions, but it is still a NOVEL!!
To enter to win a signed copy of FAR FROM YOU, all you have to do is tell me you've read one of my books and why people shouldn't be scared OR that you are excited to read one of my books, which will make me SO happy on my birthday.
I'll have Kate announce the winner on Monday! (Sorry, contest open to US residents only. You have until midnight EST Saturday, 2/6 to enter.)
So go. Comment, please! It's my birthday - make my day!!!!
