Aaaheeheehee. Nah. To witchy...
Maybe stick with a classic MWAHAHAHA. Yes. I like that.
Hello, welcome back! I missed you cats. But I did get a lot of work done. What I want to focus on today, though, is a few great people that all connect.
What do author Beth Revis, crazy awesome blogger Cinnamon , another awesome blogger Abby Minard, and myself have in common? Across the Universe maybe???
You see, I have been wanting, needing, ACHING to get my hands on an ARC of ATU for months. Cinnamon, the sweet and wonderful woman that she is, emailed me offering her copy up to me for nothing! Just cause!
So, in my desperation to squeal my delight to SOMEONE over this incredibly generous act, I email my bud Abby. And that all led to an idea that Abby gave a name. We call it our Tour de ARC: .
And the head, engine, heart of the train all started with (Beth Revis) But also....
CINNAMON~On Writing, Books, and Being Toast!
Don't know her? You should! Check her out!! She's a lovely new blogger/writer that always has something awesome to say about books and writing. So head over and check her out!
Now about Across the Universe...what could I possibly have to say about THAT...?
IT WAS AWESOME!!
I don't review books. Nope. But this one, I have been so anxious to read and believe me, it wasn't a let down. I pride myself, I mean PRIDE myself, on being able to guess endings, plot twists, and who done its and whys. But, of all the MILLION of questions Beth Revis throws at you in ATU I got, MAYBE 2 right. That is crazy! I was surprised! Left on the edge of my seat! Dying to keep reading! It is a hit, my friends.
Go get your copy 1/11/11!
On top of that, I was one of the tons of winners of Beth Revis epic contest! So this holiday season was highlighted by this bunch of awesome:
Oh yea, that is a bunch of autographed swag.
How you like the new camera? MWAHAHA. Ehem. Sorry. I get carried away.
Thanks Cinnamon!!So the details of Tour de ARC: are this: The book will go on tour. It started in the talented hands of Beth, obviously, placed into the mits of Cinnamon, passed along to me, Abby should have it by now, and she will pass it along once she has read it.
Now, as of this moment, I have no idea where this book will travel next. And even when I do know, I really can't tell you. You will have to keep your eyes peeled on Abby's blog to see who the lucky recipient will be and also check on her thoughts of the book.
We're hoping to see how far the ARC can go--to what bloggers it will see before 1/11/11.
Is my vacation really over? It was so short seeming... I mean, I missed you all, I like my actual work-job and all, but...waking up after 10 became a special part of my life. We bonded, me and sleeping til after 10AM. A love affair like no other, I'd even say. Ah well.
HERE are 5 scientific reasons a Zombie Apocalypse could actually happen. (or so this guy says. But...he kinda makes a good argument.)
HERE are 10 writing resolutions you CAN fulfill.
Lastly, irrelevant to anything at all ever: my favorite word verification from this past week: hellyas. Coincidentally, it was on a post that totally needed a hellyas.
Come back Wednesday for some catch-up. Hope to see you there!
