Re: Most Anticipated 2012 Releases

I'm excited for my friend's novel, Something Strange and Deadly to release in July (Susan Dennard). :-)

I also took her author photo, so that will be fun to see on the jacket! lol

Re: 4th Annual Blog Bracket Challenge!

My bracket is also ridiculously screwed up, so now I'm cheering NC State on! Two of my husband's old college coaches are assistants there, so the text messages back and forth have been hilariously awesome. I'm so happy for them!

Re: 4th Annual Blog Bracket Challenge!

First place! Woot! Though Creighton and FSU about gave me a heart attack.

Re: 4th Annual Blog Bracket Challenge!

Picked Harvard to upset Vanderbilt (can't stand to see Vanderbilt win for personal reasons...) and was 9 points away from looking like a genius! :*( My other upset is up almost 10 at the half. Come on VCU!! Who did you guys pick as a Cinderella? I've got Creighton in the Sweet 16, which I'm still if...

Re: Are we doing a March Madness bracket group this year?

I was quite relieved when I saw that blog post go up!

I think a little piece of my soul would have gone missing had you not set one up. :-P

Are we doing a March Madness bracket group this year?

Simply for bragging rights! Though I know I'll totally overanalyze my bracket and will lose - crash and burn style.

Re: What pays your rent?

I'm a third grade teacher. :-) Nice. I was a teacher for five years but knew I had to quit if I wanted to follow some of creative aspirations like writing a book. It's a job I brought home physically and emotionally. So...I've been a self employed remodel contractor for nine years now. Just remodel...

Re: Weirdest Christmas/Holiday songs?

I'm SO glad I'm not the only one who thinks "Christmas Shoes" is strange. I mean…shoes? Of all things? I even feel heartless writing that, but really? lol And I've thought that about "Baby It's Cold Outside", too. Date rape drug! Date rape drug!! :D Not a Christmas song, but "Baby It's Cold Outside"...

Re: Boilerplates

Hey! Sorry it's taken me a bit to respond. Gotta love the holiday crazy! :D I don't claim to be an expert on freelance stuff because I've only done touches of it. I did shots for a HarperCollins author, but the publisher didn't ask for rights. They just wanted something in writing giving them permis...

Re: Rave about your Significant Other, Friends, or Family!

Your husband sounds a lot like mine! :D I actually wrote a blog post the other day about our trip to Nashville which was spent discussing my series in full. He is such an awesome cheerleader and idea-bouncer-offer. :D

Re: 250 Word Sharathon--post the opening of your WIP

Mine is kind of a first draft. I wrote one beginning, but then started over, so this is a bare form of where I'm beginning the story now. :/ It's YA I guess dystopian, but it's not in the future, so I'm not sure that fits. The Devil's Utopia The dungeon doesn’t appear any different than before – not...

Re: Bloodlines - YA fantasy

I suck at queries, but the first thing that popped out at me is that you started with the Fellowship instead of your MC and I wanted to make a connection to her first, then learn about her world. :-) Interesting premise, though! Also, Bloodlines is the name of Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy spin-of...
