The book signing was wonderful--it was great to see everyone again and I just want to thank Ms. Story for arranging it all, and being so fabulous.

Also! Erin, Laura, Brianna, Courtney, and Madison have all won books in the mini-contest I ran to celebrate my second printing--but Madison, the email address I have for you keeps bouncing back, so can you please get in touch with me again?

Today I have to do all the stuff I didn't do while I was working on copy edits--like laundry. Sigh. Too bad it can't wash itself. That would be fantastic. Of course, sentient laundry could be a scary thing. (Neglected t-shirt: "Why don't you wear me anymore? What's wrong with me? Me: Nothing, I swear! I love you! In fact, why don't I wear you right now? Neglected t-shirt: That's better. Now, let's talk about the time you spilled ketchup on me. Was it *really* an accident?)

And finally, guess what? People DO judge books by their covers.

I just got the books today from the contest! Thank you sooo much! I was excited about getting them, and then there was a post-it note on it! It's like a hand written note from a celebrity!

A very very very big fan,

To be honest, yes, I judge books by their covers. And I do believe that the unexpected success of quite a few books books was hinged first on their covers, and their continued success on content (or hype).

And having said that, the cover of _Bloom_ rocks!

I just read this post and noticed the blurb about judging books by the cover...it's so funny b/c I just posted a review of Bloom on my blog and talked about loving the cover. :-) You can read my review at www.emsbookshelf.blogspot.com. I just started the blog and Bloom is one of the first books I reviewed. I can't wait to read your next book!
