Pet story ARC winner and newsletter alert

Congrats to Hockeyvampiress (love that name), whose name I drew last night to win an ARC of Bad to the Bone! Thanks so much to everyone who shared their pet stories and photos and memories with us. They made me smile and go, "Awwww" a heckuva lot. I'll be sure to reply to you individually once these next two madcap days are over (see below for a hint of the madcappiness).

Also, a quick heads-up: I'll be sending out my newsletter either late tonight or tomorrow morning, so if you haven't signed up, here are a few reasons why you should:

1. You'll be the first to get a glimpse of Shane's short story. Most of the world won't see it until April 5.
2. Before each issue goes out, I draw two names at random to win a prize. Not surprisingly, this issue's prize is an ARC of Bad to the Bone.
3. All the cool people are doing it. You wanna be cool, right?
4. It only comes out four times a year.
5. It's totally text-based (i.e., no HTML) to minimize inbox clutter and download time.
6. It's entertaining. At least, I guess it is, because only two or three people (out of 1000+) unsubscribe after each issue. So I must be doing something right (or at least not doing anything very wrong).
