I'm getting ready to clean the house before guests arrive (I figure being greeted by dust bunnies the size of small clouds probably isn't the best way to say "Welcome!"),but before I do that, I want to say *Congrats!* to Sarah, who won last week's contest.

Also don't forget, YOU still have today and tomorrow to enter the latest contest, which is for a copy of Ally Carter's latest best-selling novel, Only The Good Spy Young, AND an ARC of The Replacement, which was blurbed by another best-selling author, Maggie Stiefvater!!

I also have a few links to share:

Fabulous post over at Writer Unboxed about juggling writing--and the rest of your life

Interesting blog at Murderati asking about ways to recover after intensive writing--and a discussion on which book is the hardest to write. I agree with the author that for most people, it's their second. So far, the hardest novel I've ever written wasn't my second--it was my fifth--which I thought I actually couldn't finish and only did because some very dear friends would *not* let me give up. (And no, the novel in question wasn't Living Dead Girl. Care to guess which one it was????)

Agent Kristin Nelson has a spot-on entry about the continuing problems with Bookscan's accuracy

Agent Rachelle Gardner on how agents--and publishers--make their choices--"You pays your money and you takes your chances. After all, nobody knows anything."

Finally, aren't these Snickers Caramel Cheesecake Cookies (!) not only stomach-howl-worthy sounding, but also super adorable?

Totally unrelated to this post but I just finished Grace and I think it is completely brilliant!
