More Contests and a Big Huge Thank You

Before I start listing the plethora of contests going on right now, I want to say thanks to everyone who participated in The Beta Club yesterday. Your comments were super helpful and much appreciated. And thank you to Roni for hosting The Beta Club on her blog, Fiction Groupie. If you haven't checked out her blog yet, what are you waiting for? Go now. It's all awesomeness over there. :)

Also, I will be semi-unplugging for the next two weeks due to spring break and needing to get some words done on my rewrite. I'll still be reading and posting—even if they are cheater reposts—but I probably won't be commenting as much.

Now for the fun stuff. :)

Enter for a chance to win Writing the Breakout Novel by Donald Maas, a black leather journal, and a $15 Barnes and Noble gift card. Hurry! This one ENDS TODAY!
