Getting Ready for the Weekend

Happy Thursday! What's on tap for today, you ask? Well, as my Hook Me Up! subscribers already know, we're short and sweet, with a couple of new things and a variety of important reminders. (Hey, I think contests and in-person announcements are important! They're important to ME.)

First up, head over to Mixed Book Bag where there's a new interview with moi up and active. Learn some new info about the moi, support an Alien Collective Member in Very Good Standing, you know the drill.

Then hit the Penguin Community for today's blog, "Metamorphosis". And, if you haven't already, check out the other blogs from this week while you're there! And remember to catch it tomorrow, too, when "Non-Threatening Science Fiction" will be the blog of the day.

Winning Reminders:

There's a nice big comprehensive contest listing at Not-Really-Southern Vamp Chick. You can still enter to win a signed copy of "Alien Tango" at The Amber Scott Project, through Dec. 15th, and at Larissa's Bookish Life, through Dec. 17th; you can enter to win either a copy of "Alien Tango" OR "Touched by an Alien" at Fiction State of Mind, through Dec. 14th; and you can enter to win a copy of "Touched by an Alien" at Sara's Urban Fantasy Blog, through Dec. 19th.

And yes, the Hook Me Up! exclusive Combo-Con Contest is still going strong. There are three book and poster combo packs, all with a signed 2011 Gini Koch/Alien Series calendar. Contest, and the registration thereof, is open through Dec. 15th. The specific blog posts are starting to fall off the main page, but you can access them easily via these links:

Combo-Con Blog 1
Combo-Con Blog 2
Combo-Con Blog 3

Not on Hook Me Up! yet? Then you're not eligible for the contest. Solve the problem by sending an email to with "Hook Me Up!" in the subject line. You'll get the rules and be able to toss your name into the hat!

Last night's workshop and signing was a lot of fun, thanks to many from the Alien Collective (*waves madly to those in attendance*). It was great to see so many of you last night, and I'm looking forward to seeing others from the Collective on Saturday.

December 11, 2010 -- spotlight author at the Mysterious Galaxy Holiday Party, San Diego, CA, 6PM - 9PM. Come get your copies of "Alien Tango" and "Love and Rockets", get them signed, and hang out with yours truly at the coolest bookstore around.

I leave for San Diego and Mysterious Galaxy tomorrow, so we'll be heading to radio silence, other than Twitter (and possibly Facebook, but don't count on it), starting on Friday and going through Monday, most likely. So, hit the interviews, get your win on, read the Penguin Community blogs, and get down with your bad selves!

Everyone have their copies of "Alien Tango" yet? If not, don't delay, get yours today and enjoy your reading throughout the weekend!

Hi there! I just saw you on Coffee & a Canine- your pups are gorgeous!

I would love to profile you in a project called the R.O.A.R. Squad (Rescue Owners Are Rockin) if you're interested.

All the info is here- I look forward to hearing what you think!

Oh, would love to! (Hey, anyone who compliments the Canine Death Squad is a-okay in my book! LOL)
