This and That Thursday

I have had a sore throat and have been feeling blah the last couple of days so not as much productivity as I would have liked. Boo hoo. I hope to feel better soon because Friday night my family is celebrating! My sister, Denise, is being inducted into our high school's Sports Hall of Fame. Congrats, Denise! That girl is not only nice, smart, and beautiful, but a great athlete too! And while I'm talking about her, her company VaVaVroom is having a HUGE sale. Check it out here.

I am revisiting the first chapter of Rock 'n' Roll Princesses Wear Black. I'm excited for my "Nailing Your First Chapter" webinar with agent Mark McVeigh through YALitChat on Saturday!
1. You all may know that Carrie Harris's debut novel, Bad Taste in Boys (I already have some signed bookmarks, yo) comes out this year. Well, this funny gal just sold TWO more books to Delacourte! Bad Hair Day comes out in 2012 and an undetermined (but I'm predicting hilarious and supernatural) book comes out the next year. CONGRATS, CARRIE!

2. Plus, another blogger that makes me giggle, Ellen Oh, snagged a three book deal with Prophecy: The Dragon King Chronicles. CONGRATS, ELLO!

3. Another friend has some fab news as well, but not official yet, so I'm saying a secret congrats to her!

1. Stop by Heather Kelly's blog tomorrow for an interview with Terry Lynn Johnson and a chance to win her new book, Dogsled Dreams. Congrats, Terry!

2. Today starts Mother Reader's Comment Challenge. I met so many fab people through this challenge last year plus I won a prize. Go to Mother Reader's blog or Lee Wind's blog to join in on the fun! I'm looking forward to visiting some new blogs through this challenge.
3. Go to Keri Mikulski's blog and wish her a Happy Book Birthday! Her book, Head Games, was released this week! Hurray for sporty girls!

I've been listening to a lot of Avenged Sevenfold and Buckcherry lately. Next concert is Buckcherry next month!

And hey, you! Yeah, that fabulous person that stopped by my blog today. Yes, I am talking to you. You have yourself an amazing day!
