This, a Winner, and That part 7

MOOD STATUS: "Groovy". This week of VBS went smashingly.
(But I have another week of it next week)

Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by Writer Routine Wednesday to say hi and hear about MJ's writing routine! I think everyone was impressed with her early morning rising!

But now the important part: the book winner. :)

The winner of MJ's book BENEATH THE SURFACE is...



Please e-mail me the address you would like the book to be sent to and I'll get it to MJ.


And now for the this and that...

Here's a cute little video made from the recent RWA 2010 Literacy Book Signing.

$62,000 was raised.

So, yeah,

And one last that

My author friend
Stephanie Taylor is very excited to announce that her first contemporary romance, Doubting Thomas, will be available for purchase tomorrow, August 7th from Eternal Press.

In honor of Doubting Thomas’s release, she’ll be hosting a scavenger hunt beginning tomorrow on Facebook. There will be daily prizes and a grand prize on August 14th!

Here's a little bit about the book:

He doesn’t remember...but she does.

For five years, Thomas has lived without a past. A motorcycle accident left him with scars, permanent amnesia and a lot of anger. But the scars aren't all on the outside. He knows one day he'll need to figure out who he used to be, but for now, he's content in his misery and denial. If his family doesn't care to find him, the feeling is mutual—until the love of a tender-hearted, sassy redhead changes his mind. Alyssa Morgan vowed to locate her missing husband and has followed every clue, every lead, every hunch, hoping to find him and the reason for his disappearance. But fate has something else in store for her and puts in her path an aloof man who has her husband’s voice and the disfigured face of a stranger.

Torn between his past and their future, can they put their doubts aside and let love in?

Don't forget to check out this special event and win some fun stuff in the process!

And that's it for me.

Have a GREAT weekend!
