CONTEST for TEENS! plus a sure thing...

YALSA is running a very cool sounding contest. All the details and rules are here: http://ow.ly/78l3g

But here's an added twist:

If you decide to use one of my books for your entry, send a copy of your photo to me. You will automatically win a signed copy of one of my other books (let me know which book you are hoping for in your email and if I have a spare copy, it is yours!) and a signed bookplate to place in the copy you used in your photo. It's like one of those carnival games -- everybody's a winner! I love those.

Except the ones with clown heads.

Yesterday I got this in the mail:

Justin Case: School, Drool, and Other Daily Disasters won a prize! It is a kind of heavy glass thing so I couldn't figure out quite how to get a photo of it. That's my floor, beneath it.

Anyway, I decided that winning stuff is awesome. Also, getting something in the mail.

So I think I am going to have a contest as often as possible so you can win stuff and get something in the mail.

You know you are probably a much better photographer than I am (see above.) Go win the YALSA prize.

Books, bans, and George Clooney

A great and informative post from Meg Cabot on her blog today discusses all kinds of interesting stuff... including the horribly elegant book banning strategy I was just discussing with Meg the other day -- and also there's such a gorgeous pic of George Clooney you should not miss it.

Back to work for me -- yesterday was my son's birthday so we of course celebrated all weekend, and then tonight my husband and I are going to the taping of the Colbert Report!

So I have to get my work done right now and stop reading about censorship and George Clooney and instead get you to do it.
