An INCREDIBLY Manic Monday!

Happy Monday! As my Hook Me Up! subscribers already know, WOW, do we have a LOT for you today. A LOT. All of it's fun, cool and interesting, and there's lots of winning involved as well, so get ready to click some links!

First up, we have a new interview with me, and Kitty and Martini as well, at Book Lovers, Inc., along with a chance to win a signed copy of "Touched by an Alien".

I'm blogging all week at the Penguin Community. My first blog, Why Aliens?, is up now. (The blogs tend to go up in the afternoons.) And, all posts should be reachable via this link. Please visit because it's important to show Penguin that we DAW authors bring in the peeps!

Sara's Urban Fantasy Blog has a Holiday Giveaway, which includes "Touched by an Alien." The signed "Alien Tango" giveaway at The Amber Scott Project is still going on through Dec. 15th. The signed "Alien Tango" giveaway at Larissa's Bookish Life is going on through Dec. 17th. And the "Alien Tango" giveaway at Reading on the Dark Side ends TODAY, so get those entries in!

Don't forget that the Hook Me Up! exclusive Combo-Con Contest is still going strong through Dec. 15th. Not on Hook Me Up! yet? Don't delay, send an email to with "Hook Me Up!" in the subject line and get in while the winning's good!

And now for something completely different. Check out my interview at Coffee With a Canine for lots of intel on me and the Canine Death Squad. Lots of pics, too. (Look! There's parts of my messy house! The hubs' butt! And more! LOL)

Done with the break, let's get back to the books and such! About Happy Books has a lot of Alien related love going on at her blog. Check out her bookmarks, favorite books of the week, AND she sent me the news on the German version of "Touched by an Alien"...coming Oct. 2011 from Piper, I give you..."Aliens in Armani"!

The Iriarte Files has a review of "Alien Tango". DAW Books Review has an interesting comparison between new release "Trolls in the Hamptons" and "Touched by an Alien". Oil Color Palettes has a shout out to the cover for "Alien in the Family" and the awesome Daniel Dos Santos. And a big WOOT! for the fact that Of Science & Swords Bookstore in Melbourne, Australia just announced via Twitter and Facebook that they've already sold out of "Alien Tango"...and it was only on the shelves at noon their time!

In Person Event Reminders:
December 8, 2010 -- Writer's Workshop Wednesdays at Borders Waterfront, Scottsdale, AZ, 7PM-8:30PM; I'll be presenting "Walking the Line in SFR" as well as signing "Alien Tango", "Touched by an Alien" and, as Anita Ensal, "Love and Rockets".
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.

Oh, and in case you've somehow forgotten..."Alien Tango" releases tomorrow. Do you know where YOUR copy is coming from?

Hans Solo as an Alien makes SO MUCH SENSE! And your puppies are absolutely adorable!

Thanks, Brandy, I mean, it makes sense to ME (glad you're with me on it!). And thanks for the kind words for the Canine Death Squad. They're all kinds of flattered. (And demanding extra treats for being "absolutely adorable"...they agree with you and think you're brilliant and discerning and clearly the best person ever.)
