Quote of the Week (6)

"There's always another storm. It's the way the world works. Snowstorms, rainstorms, windstorms, sandstorms, and firestorms. Some are fierce and others are small. You have to deal with each one separately, but you need to keep an eye on whats brewing for tomorrow."

-- Maria V. Snyder (Fire Study)

That's right....I just couldn't resist using one of Maria's quotes after meeting her on Saturday at her book signing in Lancaster, PA.  I had so much fun and it was well worth the road trip....all I can say is Maria is beyond gracious and nice...she's wonderful!  

You guys know how excited I was to go to my 1st book signing and it didn't dissapoint!  She took the time to take pictures with me and to sign multiple copies of her books for me...I got there early and the line hadn't formed yet...I guess sometimes it pays to be punctual...hopefully I'll remember that in the future, lol!  I've got to upload those pictures I took to show you guys, I'll get right on that a.s.a.p.!

So as you may remember, I was talking on Friday about wanting to host my 1st giveaway...and I'm in the process of working on it now.  The 1st place prize will be a SIGNED copy of Inside Out that Maria was kind enough to dedicate to a lucky winner and she threw in a bookmark to go with it!  

I have two other books that I know I'll be adding to the contest for 2nd and 3rd place winners, but like I said this will be for followers only!  You guys have been so great and I love you to death...when I last checked I had 39 on Friday and my number seems to have gone up so if that continues I'll be sure to add onto the contest giveaway to reflect that.  

Also on a side note...because this contest is to reflect how much I love my followers...this contest will be International...I don't wanna leave anyone out...they might not all be like this in the future...I might have to utilize the Book Depository for later contests but this one is for EVERYONE!

I'm hoping to get the google docs contest forms, etc...all that jazz set up and ready to go by Wednesday...if not it will be as soon as I can figure it out, lol!  So check back in and get excited...I know I am, I love reading so much and I love giving away books almost as much as I love getting them..hehe!

P.S. in other news....don't forget to pick up Radiant Shadows by Melissa Marr which comes out tomorrow!  I'm going to try and fly through her 3rd book in the Wicked Lovely series, Fragile Eternity so that I can delve into the new release pronto!


  1. I've heard so much about Inside Out, I can't wait until I get a chance to read it!

  2. You're so lucky to have met Maria. I love her books! :D

  3. Yeah she was great, and I was super excited for the chance...check out her website for more upcoming tour dates...maybe she's coming somewhere close to you? It's worth the trip, she's awesome!
