Holy cow - last week was March Break and it was insane!! I slept eleven hours last night...when is the last time you did that? Now, before you think - well, she had a week with her kids and really dodgy weather, so of course she's exhausted. That's not the case. The truth is - they were at camp. But I had to take them back and forth to camp. My husband usually takes the kids to school and I pick them up. But Adam had a very intense work week and the whole reason I put the kids in camp was so I could have a very intense work week. I have new HUGE respect for the parents who get themselves and their kids out the door, work really hard at a job they love, pick those kids up and get dinner on the table. Everyday was a marathon. Hats off Mom's and Dad's who work out of the house...
Now - in other news it's DABWAHA time. For those of you who might not know this is a Tournament of Books created by the combined talents of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books and Dear Author. It's modeled after the March Madness college basketball tournament, with seeds and brackets. There are prizes, not just for the book/author that wins, but for readers who pick a bracket and have the best percentage of success with their picks. All in all - lots of fun.
Storytelling Rules/Drunk Writer Talk has a lot of friends in the tournament, Cecilia Grant, Laura Florand, Ruthie Knox, Sarah Mayberry and Simone St. James. And ME!!! Can't Buy Me Love is included and I'm pretty darned excited.
Now, the way the books progress from one round to the next is by reader votes - And I'll talk about that once the voting opens up. However, if you would like to participate in what is an incredibly fun month of trash-talking, bribing and authors behaving outrageously - you can fill out your bracket HERE
