I can't believe it, but Bloom will be released in less than a month! I've put up chapter one for download--just click here--and I'd love to know what you think of it.

And, of course, I'm still running weekly contests, and will until the last week of April, when the Mega May contest will start. (Here's a hint for it: if you've pre-ordered Bloom, save your receipt/invoice when the book comes!)

So, if you'd like a chance to win a book this week, just leave a comment here, or send me an email (elizabeth at elizabethwrites dot com) Comments/emails must be in by midnight EST on Friday, March 30th, and then I'll draw four names at random and send each of those four people a book! Though you can only reply once, you can reply no matter where you live (I will ship books overseas), or if you've won something from me in the past.

Books I'll be giving away are: How to be Popular by Meg Cabot, The Nature of Jade by Deb Caletti, When It Happens by Susane Colasanti, and The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson.

In other news, I managed to get the house clean before anyone showed up *and* the dust bunnies stayed hidden under the sofa. Perhaps next I'll attempt to dust on a regular basis. Or not.

And finally--you know I have links to share!

I know I'm always posting links from Justine Larbalestier, but I can't help it that she's always interesting! Here she's posted a bit from her very first draft of Magic or Madness.

I can't remember if I've posted this before or not, but if I have, you know what? It's worth repeating. One of my all-time fave posts about books--Tess Gerritsen says "You know what? It's okay to read what you want to."

Who won last week? And what is the topic for this week's contest? I read this twice and I still couldn't see it..though that could be just me. If it is, sorry! :)

Hi Jocelyn,

Oops! I forgot to post the winners--sorry about that. They were Lauren, Amy, Juanita, and Elissa.

As for this week's contest--all you have to do to enter is leave a comment. Like you did! :-)

Hi Elizabeth,
I enjoy reading your blog, and wait anxiously for your book release. I have pre-teen and teen granddaughters that I would love to give them one of your books for a gift.
Thanks for your great blog and all of the links.
