Mythology Giveaway Winner, some news and a (MAJOR) announcement!

Congratulations to  Ariell Larson!!  You have won a copy of Mythology by Helen Boswell!  

An e-mail will be sent shortly.  

And now, onto other news: 

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  I know mine was spectacular!  I got to go see 
Ringling Bros. And Barnum & Bailey: Dragons (Yes, I am aware that this is only sort of related to writing)  

Yes! I got to see a Dragon Show!!! 
A huge THANK YOU to the best Sister and Brother (in-law) ever for taking me! 
 It was epic! (Plus, it was my first Circus ever!)

And tonight, I am going to see The Piano Guys in concert!!! Haven't heard of them? You're missing out!
(Yes, I am aware that this really doesn't have anything to do with writing.  Except for. . . it does.  Come back for Friday's Blog post to find out how they are related!)

Oh yeah! One more thing!
I have been putting this off for a while but have finally given in and done it.  I created my twitter account.
Follow me and I will follow you! :)

Just kidding, that wasn't the last thing. HERE is the last thing.

Here is the MAJOR Announcement I was referring to in the title of this post.

So, some of you may recall a post I did last year titled Are you an author? Do you know the one I am referring to? If yes, then I think you can guess what I'm about to announce.  If No, CLICK HERE to read the original post!  

So here is the short rundown:

Last year I did The Twelve Books for Christmas.  I interview 12 authors (per blog, there were three blogs signed up). And each author gave away a book or two or three or twelve.  :)  And we did this for the twelve days leading up to Christmas.  It was a TON of fun and even though it was short notice last year, it got a LOT of attention.

So why am I telling you about this in September?  Well here is why:

Last year I posted the "Are you an author" post on November 30th and it was incredibly difficult to get everything set up and even with my handy-dandy best friend, we still struggled getting everything ready on time.

SO, I am telling you this because I am hoping to get more than 36 authors signed up for The Twelve Days of Christmas.  :)  Want to know more? Interested in signing up?  Want to read the rules?  Everything can be found HERE on this form!

There is a slight mistake in the form.  It does say that Interview Questions will be sent out within the next week.  This is not true.  I will slowly be e-mailing out interview questions as it gets closer to the actual event! But knowing which authors are signing up ahead of time will make it easier to build up some hype!

Oh and if you're worried about participating because you are Indie, don't!  Want to know why? CLICK HERE! 

If you're worried about signing up because you are Traditionally published, don't!  Want to know why? CLICK HERE.

If you have questions, comments, or suggestions, please look at the form first and then feel free to comment or e-mail me!

Okay, now go fill out (or at least look at) the Sign up Form!


  1. CONGRATS to the winner!

    I hope you get lots of people to sign up for your 12 Days of Christmas.

    1. Thanks! There are a bunch of Authors signed up. Looks like we are looking at another over filled event! :)

  2. What an awesome idea! I am not an author the way you are, but I still love writing poetry. And, I loved the circus!
