My first blog award! Kiersten's cover!

You like me! You really like me!


At least, Rachel Bateman does! Today Rachel bestowed me with the Awesomesauce Award for Displaying Awesomeness on a Regular Basis.

The rules for the award are:

If you get sauced, define awesome and name 8 people who fit that definition. You don't have to pass the award on if you don't want to, since it's just for fun.

Rachel's definition of AWESOME is:
MY definition of AWESOME is:
Anyone who makes me laugh, supports me, understands my bizarre humor, and is just generally, er…awesome!

Anyone whose blog I enjoy reading, who gives back to the writing community through blogging advice/expertise, supports/encourages me, or loves HARRY POTTER. You are AWESOME!
1.] Heidi Rebecca always has something interesting to say, has traveled the world, and probably loves HARRY POTTER more than I do.
 
2.] Debbie Barr is fearlessly honest in portraying the ups and downs of the writing process. She also sells awesome RSS and Facebook earrings on Etsy!
 
3.] YA Highway for giving me great topics to write about every week with Road Trip Wednesdays.
 
4.] Elana Johnson for being an uber-helpful, super-conscientious blogger. I don't know how you do it all, Elana, but I'm glad you do!
 
5.] Michelle McLean hosted a contest for which I won silver medalist, and thanks to she and her friends Christine Fonseca, Suzette Saxton, Bethany Wiggins, Cole Gibsen, Leah Clifford, and Lisa Amowitz,  my query is all shiny and (dare I say?) awesome before I've even finished my edits.
 
6.] Kirsten Hubbard for her insightful blog and baby animal of the week feature (Ligers! Tiglons! Oh my!).
 
7.] Rachel Bateman for recognizing my blog with this award and for introducing me to Carrie Ryan's work. Thank you, Rachel!
 
8.] My family, because NO ONE is more awesome than they are!
 
Speaking of awesomenessKiersten White revealed the cover for her debut novel PARANORMALCY yesterday. The cover is a perfect balance of whimsy (the dress) and mystery (why is she in a thunderstorm in a field in that dress?), don't you think? This is definitely the kind of book I'd pick up based solely on its cover. 
 
September 21, people! September 21!
 
Make sure to stop by Kiersten's blog to congratulate her.

Finally, Beth Revis is hosting a MONUMENTAL contest to celebrate her recent book deal. Find out more about the contest and enter here!
