I hope you are going about looking fabulous today, eating things that
are not good for you, and generally getting in touch with the silly and
the fun. I'm dressing up as Julie Newmar and heading into San Francisco
despite rain, crazy city parting, and the Giant's Victory Parade. Wish
me luck! Mostly, wish me the benefit of my hair staying in place?
Just a note to say the name a Finishing School class contest
(win 1 of 20 ARCs) ends officially tonight. More precisely, it probably
ends when I haul my sorry self out of bed tomorrow and close comments.
If you win, you'll be notified by my publishing house at which point
they will ask for your mailing address.
Also both Timeless
(in Paranormal Fantasy) and Soulless Vol. 1
(in Graphic Novels & Comics) have been nominated for Goodreads Choice
awards. If you feel inclined to vote, I'd be most grateful.
