If you've been following me for awhile, you'll notice some changes here...like the fact that I've doubled my number of followers in a weeks time. Thank you Rachael Harrie and your awesome campaign! :::waving and smiling at all my fellow campaigners and new writing friends:::
You'll also notice that super cute sticker in the upper right hand corner. Thanks to meeting my fellow campaigners, I stumbled across a giveaway to win your own custom blog badge or sticker. I chose the sticker so I could have a cute link to my digital picture book, PAJAMA GIRL. Huge thank you to Carrie Butler, for offering the giveaway and designing such a cute sticker. I love it!
Another awesome thing is that Elana Johnson is now a follower of my blog! I find this pretty incredible because I feel like every blog I follow has been buzzing about her debut novel, POSSESSION. And by 'buzzing' I mean falling over themselves with praise and adoration for her book. First, Allen Zadoff starting following me on Twitter and now I've got Elana Johnson here, I have totally entered an alternate universe here. (and I like it!)
And that's still not all. I am surprised and honored that a fellow campaigner, whilst visiting the plethora of campaigner blogs, decided that my blog was worthy of an award! So thank you so much, Megan for thinking so much of this blog. I really appreciate it.
The award is to recognize bloggers with less than 200 followers. Recipients of the blog are supposed to award it to 5 other bloggers, because, let's face it, writer's enjoy sharing the love. I will share the love, I promise, but I'm too brain dead at this exact moment to do so. I'll try to get to it sometime before Labor Day weekend is over. Hold me to it folks. After all, yours may be the blog I award it to.
Finally, to end this little love fest, I want to remind you that the Naia Underwood giveaway I'm moderating is making me sad because only 4 people have entered. For the backstory, I'm moderating the social media for Naia Underwood because her creator is an author I deeply admire and consider a friend. I really, truly, love the trilogy she appears in, The Aldous Lexicon, and I want to see them become successful as ebooks. Truly, my YA novel would not have been written if it wasn't for the trilogy. The giveaway winner will be announced this coming Monday, Sept. 5. So I'm urging you to enter. All you have to do is Tweet to @NaiaUnderwood or leave a comment on her Facebook page, answering the question, "What would you do if you came face to face with an alternate version of yourself." (the trilogy deals with alternate realities) The winner receives a $12 Amazon gift card, which would easily cover the cost of the trilogy, although, of course, you can use it for whatever you want. Spread the love folks, enter the contest. It'll set my little heart aglow, and really, isn't that what we all want?
