Pop Til You Drop

Yay!! Extra excited today, because I get to pop over the big pond to London and visit with my totally awesome crit partner, VIKKI! Hope you have a chance to stop by - I'll be talking about future technology.

Vikki writes innovative YA and adult thrillers. I know I will hear about a deal for her soon! Keep writing, my friend! Fridays are busy at Vikki's blog, as she hosts Celebrate the Small Things. Her particpation list has grown substantially! And she also contributes to the Writer Diaries - group of writers who give advice, share reviews, and support the writing community. You should check them out! And double me shivering timbers, here's Vikki's sparkling review of Pop Travel there! Thanks again, Vikki!!!

AND!

My supercalifragilisticexpialidocious publisher, Curiosity Quills, has put together a week long blog tour for me! My friend and fellow author, Jamie Ayres is putting a review up on her blog today! (I'm sure you all are sick of me and my Pop Travel... but the job requires us to be a squeaky wheel - squeak, squeak.) The week of scheduling is above.

On with other news, important bits, & shoutouts! (because I also get sick of talking about myself!):

It's September!! So I have winners for my August giveaway!! Congrats to:
Rhonda Albom
won a signed copy of Pop Travel
Gwen Gardner
won the Pop Travel goodie bag
Elizabeth Seckman
won a $25 GC to Barnes & Noble

I was also a winner recently! I won Cinder by Marissa Meyer in a giveaway at Nutschell's - thanks, Nutschell!

And Thursday, Robin dedicated a song to me - "Me Time." She's just awesome like that. I feel so special! She heard my plea and it struck a chord! ha! Thanks, Robin!!

Don't forget IWSG on Wednesday - It's the group's 2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! Can you believe it? And Super Alex (because he's my blogging hero) said he had something special in store, so make sure you stop by his place. Exciting!

Lastly, I thought you all could use a chuckle. I'm sending a copy of my book, with cover letter and press release, to a Hollywood agency! Hey, it can't hurt!! I crack myself up =D (I think Kate Hudson would be a killer Geri Harper! Spunktastic!)

Happy Monday! Tell me some good news with you!
And did I mention to go stop by Vikki's and Jamie's? (hee hee)

Oh, yeah! Since it's Sept - time for my Sept giveaway!

I'll head over to Vikki's blog too. It can't hurt to send Hollywood a copy can it? You just never know!

I love the energy here today, and I love Celebrate The Small Things Fridays.

And it's awesome that you're sending your book to a Hollywood agency!

Lovely to have you over today ;)

Crystal Collier said...

Yay! Tara, as soon as you've got a date for book 2, shoot me a note so I can sign you up for the Writerly Wednesday Truth or Lie game.

Way to be brave and get yourself out there. You never know what they'll say--and the only way to guarantee a "no" is to NOT try.

Congratulations on winning Cinder. I love that book.

Good luck with Hollywood. I heard Stephen Spielberg started by acting like he belonged there, you might as well, too.

Christine Rains said...

Tara, it has been fun to follow your tour on so many blogs and see you excited about your book. I am sending you all good wishes and thoughts for super sales and success!

As for sending your book out, that old adage "Ask and you shall receive" implies that you asked. Good luck!
