Good News Thursday

In honor of Earth Day, I give you this earthy smiley face! How has your week been? Any good news you wanna share?

I've got a couple of things, one in which is one of my new WIPs (temporarily titled GOT SPIRIT?) and it's placement on my site. Check out the mock cover over there ---->

All about cheerleading! Loving it so far. I've also decided what I'm getting for my birthday from husband . . . a weekend OFF. Hello spa day, night in a hotel, reading, writing, hot tub, and doing whatever the heck I want! It's like a dream come true (um, does that make me a sad little person?) and I'm really excited.

On to some other good news stuff: You have until April 25th to win an ARC of THE DUFF by Kody Keplinger (and it sounds so fantastic!) go enter!

On April 27, Chris Richman of Upstart Crow Literary, is having a contest over at QueryTracker. Got a one sentence pitch for your MG or YA? Don't miss out! He's not capping entries!

And thanks to Krista V. over at Mother. Write. (Repeat.) for awarding me The Silver Lining Award!

Some bloggers full of cheerfulness I'll pass this on to are:

Samuel Park (and his Daily Pep For Writers)
Sara Raasch (because her blog always make me crack a smile...or laugh)
and Sharla Scroggs (because of her awesome positive attitude!)

Give them a look-see, I'm sure you won't be disappointed! I hope everyone has a fab rest of the week. I may or may not post a Friday Feeding the Muse, I'm actually starting back up the Zumba classes now that baby is only taking one afternoon nap a day *mourn*. Thanks for stopping by and

  1. Congrats on starting the new book! Enjoyed the first chapter and can't wait to see where you're going with it! :-)

  2. Whoo hoo! Thanks for the award, girl! That was very sweet. And a night to veg in a hotel alone??? That's awesome. Well, I guess we did that at the conference, but that wasn't relaxation...LOL! That was stress. Congrats and have a great time!

  3. My sentiments exactly, Sharla! My MIL said the same thing, "Didn't you get a weekend off already?" No. Not OFF, I still consider it work! And you bet, you deserve it.

    Ink, thanks for reading, I'm all giddy you liked it!

  4. It was my birthday on the 22. I'm the big 2-5 >.<.

    Oh yeah, and I got to borrow a computer again. For a while.

  5. Happy Earth Day to you too, Christa (a little late).

    Congrats on the WIP, the award, and the Zumba classes.

    And that weekend off sounds heavenly. I wonder if I can order one of those for Mother's Day...


  6. Aw, thanks, Christa!! This made me smile :D

  7. Thanks for the award! You're great!
