Slacker Time and "Ontario" update!

Wow guys, wow. Sorry! Holy cow I haven't posted since Thursday, which is insane. This little thing called life is sort of catching up with me! Some of the things I've been doing instead of blogging:

  • Going to basketball games
  • Reading
  • Surfing the web
  • Hanging out with friends
  • Boy drama
  • Choir rehearsals
  • Choir concerts
  • Choir party
  • Cleaning the house
  • Getting back to good eating habits
  • Job interviews
And. . . the list goes on. At least those aren't all bad things to be doing! I have also been selling more copies of Through the Paper Wall which is awesome, and I have received some more fabulous reviews as well! Since I've been doing all this other stuff I failed to look at my schedule, so the usual guest people, you know all the cool stuff, you'd normally get to see today and tomorrow just aren't gonna happen. Sorry about that! The least I can do it tell you about some exciting things that are coming up.

First, thanks to everybody who voted for Through the Paper Wall in the Goodreads Lucky '13 contest (you still can!). It was fun to run the contest and give away another free book, so thanks for participating. And speaking of contests *cough cough* see that thing over there in the right side bar? Yeah, that's something really cool courtesy of Rafflecopter. Surely lots of you know what that means. Let me just tell you, this contests is gonna be AWESOME and as you can see, the winner will receive a signed paperback copy of Ontario before it is actually released! Somebody is gonna be really lucky, and I can't wait to find out who! I'll be creating a Facebook even soon to get the word out, so make sure you share, share, share! We really want to get people involved in this!

Also, for the release of Ontario I am planning not only another blog tour, but also a launch party with even more prizes! So far I can think of three or four . . . woot! It's gonna be sweet! I am still in the process of doing final edits of my own and working on edits from my beta readers, as well as waiting to get permission to use the image I want for the cover! I'm planning on releasing the book in April, woohoo! I can't wait! 

So, there's a bit of an update for you. Really exciting things coming in the near future! As always, thanks so much for supporting me and hanging in there when I'm a slacker. Enjoy your first day of Spring!
