AJ Menden contest winner, and life beyond deadline

The winner of a signed copy of AJ Menden's Phenomenal Girl 5 is...Jess! Congrats! Jess, send your mailing address to me at jeri AT jerismithready DOT com, and I'll pass it on to AJ. Thanks to everyone who commented, and especially to AJ for being a great guest!

I've spent the last few weeks doing nothing but writing, so I'll spend the next few weeks catching up on all the not-writing things in life. Like e-mail and housework and oh, I don't know, maybe a bit of promotion for that book of mine that just came out, The Reawakened.

Writing projects for the month include Jim's short story (tentatively titled "When the Music's Over") at least some of Noah's short story, and a proposal for more vampire books.

I'd also love to finish the four books I'm in the middle of reading. Oh, and sleep.

Good luck to all those doing NaNoWriMo! One of these years, I swear...

Yay! I actually went and checked that TWO Jesses hadn't commented. Just in case. And of course when I finally made it to BN, they had shipped the book since I hadn't picked it up. This is the BN I used to WORK at. You'd think they'd have called me. They know me better than that. *is mad* But yay, free copy!

I still plan on buying it cuz I'm supportive like that. But I'll give it to a friend. :)
