That is sooooo Beth Revis.

As if I can't already like her enough, admire her enough, or be more excited about her book release next year, Beth Revis has gone and started a new awesomesauce blog with three fellow dystopian authors (Julia Karr, Angie Smibert, and Jeff Hirsch) who are also debuting in 2011.  The League of Extraordinary Writers.

When does she sleep?

AND they're having a great giveaway to kick things off.


I want to win.  Le sigh.

Please.

Head over to my friend Kristin's blog to read about her precious friend awaiting surgery.   I ask you to pray for this sweet little girl Friday morning.

Thank you.

Great Contest: Win Claire de Lune

Female werewolves!  I had to put it in pink.  Umm, yeah.  I love it, too.  And I can't wait to read it whether I win the book or not.  Head over to Lisa Amowitz's blog by May 10 to win a copy of Claire de Lune!

Mama Pajama Day

When I was still working outside the home, and I heard my stay-at-home (Ha!  There's a misnomer) mom friends talk about being in their pajamas at 2:00 in the afternoon, I thought, "Wouldn't that be lovely?"  Then I had a child, and I realized that if you or said child is in your pajamas past, oh, say 9:00 a.m., there's a reason for that.

And it isn't good.
