What's Up With Me

1. I blogged over at The Contemps website this fine Hot Topic Tuesday.  Check it out and let me know what you think! 2.  Today is the official release date for BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS, by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.  It's the next book in their NY Times bestselling Caster Chronicles (along with the first book, BEAUTIFUL CREATURES).  I'm also beyond excited to announce that I'll be interviewing these lovely and talented ladies when their completely amazing, larger-than-life tour stops at the King's English in Salt Lake City on Thursday, October 21st.  That, my friends, is NEXT Thursday.  Mark your calendars, because this is not your run-o'-the-mill tour.  Which reminds me, I've been invited to join in their massive giveaway by contributing my own shwag for my upcoming title BACK WHEN YOU WERE EASIER TO LOVE.  Alas, I currently possess zero shwag.   Any suggestions?  Also, time is of the essence.  Did I mention it's only 9 days away?

3.  Speaking of awesome Thursdays, this Thursday is my birthday.  October is a great month for birthdays!

4.  Speaking of great month for birthdays, on Friday my adorable nephew will be two.

As you can see, October has been very, very good to me.
