My dogs love readers!
It's Friday, and there's really no theme to this post. It's a veritable hodgepodge of things I want to share with you.
1. I have a book signing for The Waiting Booth at a local Hastings store on Saturday. My sweet sister is making gourmet cupcakes decorated with my book theme to hand to every person who purchases a book. If no one shows up, I'm going to gain weight.
2. November is my reader appreciation month. I'm giving away a $5 Amazon or Starbucks gift card every week. Leave a comment Monday-Friday (midnight CST) of this week, and you're in the drawing on Saturday. I appreciate you. I have surprises planned for December.
3. I was interviewed about the Whispering Woods series at InterestTeen ezine at
4. I don't have tons of books on writing, but I do own the one on the left. It is well worth studying. James Scott Bell is the author and will be doing a FREE webinar next week. I will be at work during the time of the webinar, so I can't attend the live one. I've registered where I can access the recording later.

5. Do you belong to Goodreads? If so, you should check out of the reading groups, The Knights of the Round Table. This reading group is currently reading Whisper of Memory. I read a review today that made me feel all weepy and grateful. If you want to see what makes a grown woman tear up, you can read it HERE.
6. On Goodreads, I also have a giveaway running for a copy of the print version.
7. I saw Rock of Ages last weekend. I started the movie, and my husband saw Julianne Hough in the opener. No problem. Then she begins singing on the bus. Then other passengers begin to sing. I hear the groan from my husband. I look at him and see that it's accompanied by an eye-roll.
Husband: "What is this? Really? A musical?"
Me: "Oh, please give it a chance."
I'm glad he did. I wouldn't say it's the greatest movie of all time, but I enjoyed it. I liked Rock of Ages more than I liked Prometheus (the last movie we watched together). The soundtrack is great.
Do you have a busy weekend planned? Did you know about Goodreads groups and giveaways? Do you like cupcakes as much as I do?
