It’s My Birthday!!!

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me …

That’s right, folks, today is the magical day when, 27 long years ago, I came into this world. I think it’s been a pretty good run so far. Here are some of my random life snippets, in no particular order:

  • Met and now live with some of the best friends this life has to offer (and went to one of their concerts last night!)
  • Developed an everlasting obsession with poodles thanks to my childhood pet Cocoa
  • Earned a Bachelor’s Degree in History and Classical Studies (have not found a use for it yet, but am working on it!)
  • Utilized a wandering group of fifth graders to save a tent from collapsing
  • Moved to South Korea for a year and taught English / explored / had a blast / fell in love with KPOP
  • Learned to play, with level of competence in descending order: piano, alto sax, handbells, recorder, trumpet
  • Wrote and published two books, with a third on the way!
  • Perfected the gooey and delicious pineapple upside-down cake recipe

If you have any fun and random life snippets, I’d love to hear them! And while you’re compiling your list, remember that Imminent Danger is free to download this weekend, and Chasing Nonconformity is on sale the 23rd to the 30th of December. Want to give me an awesome birthday gift? Read and review one of my books!

Stay awesome, my friends, and party on!

Win a copy of my debut novel!

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen — it’s Goodreads Giveaway time! Wooooooo! I’m giving away four softcover copies of Imminent Danger And How to Fly Straight into It, and I can sign them to whoever you want if you win (you know, so you can give it away as a Christmas present or whatever).

A quick disclaimer before I share the link to the giveaway: it’s only open to Canada, USA, and UK, because shipping a book to the other side of the world is really freakin’ expensive. Sorry in advance!

Alright! Without further ado … here’s the link: Click here to win a copy of Imminent Danger!

Good luck to everyone who enters!

Goodreads Giveaways … hit or miss?

I have decided to take a few minutes this evening to reflect on Goodreads Giveaways.

Brace yourselves.

My first giveaway for Imminent Danger And How to Fly Straight into It from waaaaay back in April was a pretty rousing success. I gave away two books to two lovely ladies, and I got stellar reviews back in response. Huzzah!

My second giveaway in July was … not quite as successful. I only gave away one book that time, and perhaps the Stingy Gods have decided to punish me, because the lady who won my book has yet to post a review. Of course, it’s only been three months, so I remain hopeful, but the second giveaway definitely wasn’t on par with the first.

Going on the concept of bigger is better, I’ve decided to launch another giveaway! The giveaway starts tomorrow, and ends on my birthday (December 19). I’m giving away four books this time, and since my success percentages thus far on receiving reviews from the winners have been 100% and 0%, I’m aiming to reach a nice, even 50% with this new giveaway. Wish me luck!

I’ll write up another post tomorrow with the link so you can actually enter the giveaway — if you want! I figure that even if you don’t necessarily want a copy, you could hypothetically gift the book to a friend or your favorite niece as a Christmas present. Win win win!

Anyway, fingers crossed that this giveaway works out a bit better than the last one. Happy NaNo-ing to everyone, and see you again tomorrow for that link I promised!
