We have winners!!!!
Last night Queen Louise ordered her squires to participate in the Official Drawing of the Names. They dutifully complied.
The winners of custom WINTERGIRLS laptop (or phone) skins are:
You’ll be receiving an email from Queen Louise with the details about what happens next so we can get the skin to you. Thanks to everyone for participating!!
Bob the Builder showed up to the cottage project yesterday.
He plucked out the tree stumps from the site, then added a couple tons of dirt and tamped it down. (Notice the last, lingering snowbank.) Next up: a mason comes next week to form up the forms (I think that’s the right way to describe it) so the concrete slab can be poured.
I’ve been receiving early sightings of copies of WINTERGIRLS on sale already. Since I’m not J.K. Rowling, booksellers are not compelled to hold the book to the release date. If you see it, buy it!
If you see it, you could also take a picture of you standing in the store with the book. Send it to laurie AT writerlady DOT com.
March Madness News!!! Since my Georgetown Hoyas are not in the NCAA tournament this year, ::weeps::, I am supporting Syracuse University. For the third year running, Sarah Dessen and I have our bet going; if her team (North Carolina) goes farther than mine, I will send a signed copy of my new book to her public library. If my team goes farther, Sarah sends her book up here.
Haven’t had time to do my brackets yet. I think I’ll do that on the plane Thursday.
