There’s been a slight, but critical correction to this post, an update on that Second place win. Read it here.
The weather is hot (just how I like it), the sun is out full force (yay for freckles!), and yesterday I found out I placed Second in the Pen Parentis 2011 Writing Fellowship for New Parents.
When you’re fighting self-doubt with both fists lately, second place feels really great. I was alone, in a quiet house, when I read the announcement, but I didn’t stay quiet for long.
And, there’s more good news — for you. In the month of August, I’ll be hosting three authors here: two for interviews and one for a guest post. Plus, all three events include book giveaways.
Sean Keefer will talk to us about his award-winning novel,
The Trust, on August 10th.
The lovely Jenna Blum stops by on August 24th
to discuss her bestselling novel, The Stormchasers.
And, Caitlin Kelly will be guest posting on August 31st and giving away a copy of her memoir, Malled: My Unintentional Career in Retail.
Watch for these posts and enter the giveaways. It’ll be easy: all you’ll have to do is leave your name in the comment section. Leave a pseudonym if you want, but don’t miss your chance to enter.
What good news do you have to share? I bet you’ve got something. Big or small, let’s celebrate together.
