A warm thank you to Anna at Anna's Book Blog for the wonderful prizes I won in Contest #1. It was an awesome prize package (the books were on my wanted books list too!): Signed Copies of A Rush of Wings & In the Blood by Adrian Phoenix, a Club Hell T-shirt and a ton of fun swag. When I received the box of goodies, I felt like I had hit the jackpot! Still smiling.
- I participated in an online chat with Gena Showalter and Deidre Knight. I had the opportunity to ask a question and found some interesting news:
Me: Gena, which one of your series would you pick for a TV series?
Gena: Intertwined, then choice would be the Playing With Fire books.
Deidre: Well, Gena's RED HANDED *is* under option for a television series. She's making me tell you.
