Win Stuff! Enter Your Shelfie!

Happy Monday!
It was an extreme weekend in my neck of the Midwest. First, two relatives had unexpected surgeries - but are both doing very well now, thank goodness. Then, my middle son was honored as a "Freshman Football Player of the Week!" He got to dress and hang out with the varsity team for their game Friday night. And lastly, I am happy to report I submitted SIMULATION to my publisher. It's the next book in the Cooper Chronicles techno-thriller detective series after POP TRAVEL. It's all been very nerve-wracking and exciting!

In other news...

Today (10/6) is the LAST DAY to enter the SHELFIE SELFIE BLOGFEST!
We will post winners this week!




Here are our fabulous contestants:
