Writer Routines & a Winner

IN THE NEWS: A Missouri third-grader got the chance to illustrate Google's website for the day. Read more HERE.

Well, I'm so excited, because next will begin a new special that I'm going to host every Wednesday called "Writer Routine Wednesday".

I have some super duper authors lined up who were gracious enough to share their writing routines (hence the name) with me (AKA you, too). There will also be prizes!

BONUS!

To give you all a heads up, here are the authors who will be stopping by in the month of June:

Harlequin Love Inspired Suspense author Stephanie Newton
Young Adult author Rhonda Stapleton
Avalon author Gina Ardito
Harlequin author Nicola Marsh
Inspirational Women's fiction author Patti Lacy

So stop by every Wednesday for the fun! :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now for the other fun...

The winner of Julie Ferwerda's book is Laura Pauling! Congrats!! Shoot me an e-mail and let me know your mailing address!

That's all for now. I'm (this) close to finishing up a chapter and then I'll be chillin' for the weekend. Surprisingly enough, we have no real plans or obligations at this point, which is unusual. (Not that I'm complaining) No plans can sometimes be the best plans. :)

What are you doing this Memorial Day weekend?

Let's see. It's a long weekend. The weather will be good and the husband will be here...so I guess we'll be digging ditches and laying irrigation pipe. :groan:

I need to find a nearby friend who has BBQ plans. LOL!

Have a great holiday, Jennifer.
