Happy Monday, everyone! Are Mondays anyone else’s favorite day of the week? I love them. It means my twins are back in daycare and I get to work. I freaking love my job, and since I haven’t written anything since Thanksgiving (I am so not kidding here), I’m dying to get back to my current story. I miss my characters!

(Curious about my current project? The first five pages are posted at The Darkest Reader. And there’s a giveaway over there, too. Check it out.)

But I want to take a second to say Thank You! to everyone who’s read The Sharpest Blade. Your reviews and your emails and messages to me have made me so, so happy. I was a little worried (my husband would say “a lot worried”) about what everyone would think of the last book in the trilogy, but for the most part, you all loved it. You all understood McKenzie and the world and everything that was going on. You grinned, yelled, cried, and laughed in all the right places, and I can’t tell you how amazing that feels. I spent the week with a smile on my face.

For those of you who haven’t had a chance to pick up The Sharpest Blade yet, or who want a chance to win a signed copy, there are a number of giveaways still going on. I’ll post my blog tour giveaways in a second, but another big giveaway just started up.

(A big thank you to Lisa Shearin, who’s letting me borrow her Swag-for-Brag idea.)

This is a thank you to everyone who’s helped spread the word of The Shadow Reader books by posting reviews. You can enter up to nine times below or at any of the blog blast stops. I think the prizes are pretty cool, especially the puzzle. I want to keep it for myself! 🙂

Yikes! I’ve just spent an hour and a half updating my website and this post. Most of the time was on the website’s front page. Ugh. I so need to get more efficient at WordPress.

So, that’s all for now. I’m off to write!
