So, about that trip....

Okay. I'd done a pretty good job packing. I hadn't waited until the (very) last minute. I'd packed some books, but not too many because I had my Kindle. And, so I could take along my teeny tiny suitcase, I cleverly managed to get a bunch of clothes (by which I mean most of my clothes) into a garment bag. Where they were hanging up! So as not to get all wrinkly!

I was very proud of myself.

Until we got to the hotel and I realized I'd left the garment bag at home.

Yes. AT HOME.

However, as I was not staying in the middle-of-nowhere (aka where I grew up) I had access to those crazy things called stores and picked up some clothes.

But still.

At home?? Honestly. You'd think I'd know better.

However! Despite the clothes thing, the rest of the trip went fabulously and it was especially fun because I stayed in the area that inspired all the places in Stealing Heaven.

So, in honor of that wonderful state, and its very unusual food traditions (which I was most definitely thinking about as I wrote the book!) -- the first three people to email me at elizabeth at elizabethwrites dot com with the name and type of food that Greg buys for Dani *plus* the actual state where that food can be found (hint: it's not the same state as the name of the food!) will each get a free young adult novel of their choice.

Ugh. I hate it when I forget something so obvious.

Lol, I gave it a shot! Aw, and poor you accidentally leaving your garment bag at home!(I'm doing stuff like that all the time) =( Especially after all the effort it took to make sure your clothes wouldn't get wrinkly! At least it gave you an excuse to buy more clothes, lol! I'm so glad you had fun on your trip! =D
