Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a lovely and productive weekend and are rested for all that's going on today. What's going on, says you? Lots and lots, says I.
First up, and as my Hook Me Up! subscribers already know, we have one unclaimed prize from the "Alien in the Family" ARC giveaway. So, it's gone back for a new drawing. So, we have two new winners to announce. Yes, you read that right -- the Generosity of the Gods of Random knows no bounds and where one did not claim, two will get to claim in their stead. Or something like that.
So, without further ado (oh, we want
more ado, but there's a lot going on today, so we will control our ado-ness), here are the NEW lucky winners of a Guest List prize!Jessica Subject Arantza Cazalis, aka Spav
Congrats to you both! NOTE:
Winners will have until Monday, March 14, to send me an email with their physical address in order to claim their prize. No email, no prize and it will go (yet again) back for another drawing.
Speaking of "Alien in the Family", did you know that it releases in a month? You did? Good! Have you pre-ordered your copies yet? Some of you have? Awesome! And some of you, hmmm...some of you have NOT. Pre-orders matter more and more these days, so do your girl a solid and pre-order your copies TODAY!
Need more incentive? Hit the Deathless Prose
page, scroll down, click on the "Alien in the Family" cover, and read the prologue and first chapter!
Then head over to The Galaxy Express
and check out a variety of things there -- Heather Massey will be joining us later this month to talk about her debut release, "Once Upon a Time in Space"
, and giving away a free copy or two; chime in on when The Best Time to Fall In Love
actually is; and share your deep thinking on Mind Blowing Orgasms AND Deep Thoughts
Next up on today's laundry list of things to do is to check out the great review of "Alien Tango" over at Library Chicken
. Want a listing of all the SF/F novels coming in April? Sci-Fi Fan Letter
has a good one. PinkyD1969
has just started her blog, and her first post was about "Alien in the Family". There's also a new Playlist
up at my website (I know, I know, don't faint, but there is). Is that playlist a teaser for "Alien Diplomacy" or just random songs? I'll never tell...at least, not until 2012.Reminder:
You have until Friday, March 11 to enter the giveaway to win some Alien Collective Swag at Ex Libris
.In Person Events:

I'll be signing right after those panels (please be aware that the signing schedule on the TFoB website is not totally accurate as panels, and therefore signings have been moved around), and will also be signing on both days in the Mysterious Galaxy Booth

If you're attending the Festival, please let me know so we can hook up while we're there! And please attend my panels, which should be a lot of fun for the audience. Assuming I remember to pack it, I'll be the one in the pink cowgirl hat. (Yes, really.)
