I'm doing my This & That a day early today because I'm in a bullet point kind of mood.
-For every person that 'likes' them on Facebook, Scholastic will donate a book to K.I.D.S (Kids in Distressed Situations). Go here to take part.
-An adorable little girl called Jessica starts her day with positive affirmation. Hey, when your WIP, work or life in general is getting you down, do what Jessica does!
-Elana Johnson has a one day only contest at her blog to celebrate her recent book deal. Kudos to her, yay for the contest (two dystopian prize packs, and additional goodies for writers!)
-BEA is this week! I can't wait to start getting reports via twitter and my blog reader from all the bloggers, authors and book industry professionals I follow!
-Did you know that every Thursday Bookworming in the 21st Century has a link round-up for contests? It's a great way to promote your own contest or find others.
-I have made some serious progress in the Page a Day Challenge, I wrote 15 pages this past week, and I hope to double that this week.
-The husband and I have decided that ALA is way too epic to go for only one day. We're planning on going on Sunday and Monday, which works for me, because there are more authors signing on Monday that I wanted to see than are going to be there on Saturday! Those authors being Bree Despain, Tricia Rayburn and Jennifer Hubbard. I also read that in previous years a lot more authors show up for signings than are listed in the official guide! I'm going to have to bring a lot of books to get signed, and some cash because I read that publishers are also selling books in their booths. I have been doing the OMG I'M SO EXCITED!! happy dance for the last two days. June 27th can't get here soon enough!
Hope everyone's week is off to a great start.
