Yes, I said I was taking a few days off.  But you all know me. 😉  Plus, there is so much going on, especially with the Dames, I wanted to give everyone a heads up.  Check this!

The Deadline Dames  have Alyssa Day as our guest Dame for a Day Saturday!

Next week, Jackie Kessler’s  Black and White is released and we’re going to make our Readers on Deadline yummy, superhero flavored.  Got a FANTASTIC piece of inspiring art for the writing challenge.  ( AND I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS BOOK.)

Please don’t forget that we have an official Deadline Dames gift basket in the Brenda Novak auction for diabetes research. This is so important! I have family members with this disease, so I love this auction. Our basket is full of great books and Keri Arthur donated not only her entire Riley series, but Tim Tams from Australia.  She sent me some of these and whoa… loved them. Deadline to bid is this weekend.

You can still comment on three different posts and have a chance to win some great books.  My critique partner, Rachel Vincent’s  Prey is up for grabs and it’s not out yet!  Also the first two weather warden books from Rachel Caine and the debut book, Salt and Silver, by Anna Katherine.  You have until midnight, Saturday night!

And my very prolific friends have so many recent releases!  Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow, Cry Mercy by Toni Andrews  (Check out her virtual tour schedule!) and Magic in the Blood by Devon Monk.  We’ll be updating our headline page soon so you guys can keep up.  I’ve got these books right here next to me, begging to be read…

A couple of people have asked about the writer’s panel I was on with Gena Showalter  this month.  Here’s the recap!

Whew, right?
