Potluck Giveaway

Remember me? I sure hope so. Sorry to have been swallowed by life as of late, but that's my excuse. Today's post will be a bunch of stuff for your entertainment. You certainly deserve to be entertained in light of your steadfast allegiance to this poor neglected blog. Go you!

First off, check THIS out:

Yes, they are the ARCs of my new book EMPTY! I am thrilled to have them in my hands and I can't wait for you all to meet Dell....

Here's the back cover copy:
Dell is relentlessly teased about her weight, and she’s devastated when a tender moment with her long-time crush turns violent. Distraught and isolated after the attack, Dell’s depression—and life—spins out of control.

Finding that food no longer eases her pain, Dell turns to her mother’s prescription pain pills. But what starts as a quick fix rapidly escalates. How far will Dell go to make the loneliness, the self-loathing, the heartbreak, the shame, and the name-calling stop?


In CELEBRATION of this momentous occasion I'd like to do a giveaway of EPICALLY BOOKMARKISH PROPORTIONS. I'm serious. It's epic. 

I have bookmarks from close to thirty Apocalypsies, as well as other authors from BEA 2012, a Chris Colfer tote bag (yes, THAT Chris Colfer from Glee. He has written a middle grade fantasy book.), the complete Apocalypsies dance card from our BEA event (it has everyone's signatures!!), a few magnets, an Apocalypsies BEA event promo card, AND a $25 Amazon gift card. Booya.

To anyone who loves beautifully handcrafted jewelry, you must check this out:
 
It is the work of fellow writer and blogger, Christina Lee. She is clearly a talented artisan. You can find details about this necklace, titled TURN THE PAGE, here.

And I highly encourage you to spend some time over on her full-blown jewelry website called Tags-n-Stones (block out a chunk of time because you will be there a while ; )

Well, I hope this post has done its job and you experienced some joy, some excitement. 


PS I've added lots of new CRACKED review links up there in that tab, as well as links to some recent interviews (list is to your right, in a side column). Hang out for a bit!
