Two More Days to Win a Free Book

I've decided to extend the deadline on my blog contest, since I only gave you two days to enter, which wasn't really fair. The new deadline to win Kristen Chandler's new book, Wolves, Boys, and Other Things That Might Kill Me, is Sunday, October 3rd , at midnight.To see contest rules, go here . It's a well-told story with a satisfying romance that teenage girls, especially, will love. And it has wolves. Real ones. Best of all, it's FREE. All you have to do is enter the drawing. Winner will be announced Monday morning, so be sure to check back.

Two Books, a Free Book, and Cheers to Some Friends

I walk into Borders one day and see stacks and stacks of a new book with a blue cover and a picture of a wolf. Not a werewolf. A real one. That gets my attention. I love wolves. Don't get me wrong: I have nothing against werewolves and vampires. But I'm a total sucker for real, live wolves. The other thing that catches my eye is the author's name: Kristen Chandler. Hey! I know her! We were in a workshop together three years ago. I remember her reading a scene from this very book. A very fine scene, as I recall. I grab my copy and head home, where I curl up on the couch and spend some really pleasant hours with the lovely wolves of Yellowstone Park, a thoroughly likable tom-boy main character, and a way hotter love-interest than either Jacob-the-Werewolf or Edward-the-Vampire. Way cuter. And he feels as real as the wolves. I finish, put down the book, and sigh in satisfaction. I know my next blog-giveaway book. What were in those snacks they served in that class?
