Winners, and guest post!

Thank you so much to everyone who entered last week’s giveaway for Natasha Wing’s books The Night Before Hanukkah and The Night Before the Night Before Christmas. The winners are Sara and Clare! Congrats, guys, and happy reading.

LinkBackButton-02Continuing with the holiday theme, I have a guest post up today at one of my very favorite book blogs, Pop! Goes the Reader. Not surprisingly, I’m talking about holiday food…but perhaps surprisingly, I’m revealing some not-so-Gladys-approved shortcuts that I’ve been known to take from time to time. Many thanks to Jen for inviting me to participate in her “Authors Talk Holidays” series!

And the winner of TASTE TEST is…

Taste Test by Kelly FioreMaryanne Fantalis!


Thanks to everyone who read and commented on my interview with Kelly Fiore last week. I hope that those of you who didn’t win will check out TASTE TEST anyway!

Next Friday will be quiet around here for Thanksgiving, but I’ll be back the week after with more Foodie Kidlit Friday goodness. See you then!

The adventure continues!

So, two things are happening today. First of all, it’s my debut blog post over at EMU’s Debuts, which is a group blog featuring first-time authors represented by my agency, Erin Murphy Lit. If you’re at all curious about what goes on between the moment you sell your book and the moment it hits the shelves (heck, I sure am!), you’ll want to follow us over there.

My first post is a heartbreaking tale of agony and woe (um, not really) entitled “A Sob/Sub Story.”

And secondly, we have winners from the Choose Your Own Adventure Book Giveaway! has randomly decided that the winner of the Putnam book of her choice is:

Parker Peevyhouse! 🙂

And the winner of her choice of EMLA book is:

Sarvenaz Tash! 🙂

Hooray! Confetti! Cupcakes! Emoticons!   🙂 🙂

Thanks to everyone who entered, and I hope that you’ll check out some of those books on your own even if you didn’t win a copy. I’m also planning to do a few more interviews and giveaways in the coming months, so stay tuned for those!
