Coming Attractions

Red Theater CurtainLess than a week 'til Christmas (which I am hosting). Even fewer days 'til two of the three kids' birthdays (yes, they have the same one).

Just over a month 'til The Mark's release.

Here's some stuff that'll be coming next month - 'cause I'm not sure how much time I'll have to breathe, much less post, before then...

A review and giveaway of Cynthia Jaynes Omololu's Dirty Little Secrets here and a giveaway of The Mark ARC on her blog in early January.

The first of the monthly Tennerific Prize Packs with book-related goodies from twenty-seven debut authors at the Tenners.  When?  It's a surprise!  But, there is so much cool stuff here, you do not want to miss it.

And...

THE MARK'S ONLINE LAUNCH PARTY!  From The Mark's relase date, January 19th, 'til February 4th (my birthday!), there'll be daily posts and ten days of giveaways with prizes including: $25 gift cards to Borders, The Gap, Staples, American Eagle, Bath & Body Works, copies of The Mark, signed swag, hardcovers from my YA book stash.

Giveaway rules will be announced January 19, but here's a heads-up: you'll get extra entries if you read The Mark & post a review (on your blog or book sites like Amazon, B&N, Goodreads, etc.  Reviews posted before Jan 19 WILL count) or email a picture of you with The Mark (hardback version, not ARC - can be owned or at a bookstore).  Sooooo, if you see it in the wild early, grab a photo or ask your bookseller when they'll have it or pre-order.  And, if the ARC is in your TBR pile, think about cracking it open over the holidays!
