Without any ado whatsoever, Jessica @a GREAT read is the winner of our Gift of Reading contest! Jessica, please email me your choice of prize plus your mailing address! (It was so much fun seeing what everyone was reading/gifting/recommending! Especially cool was an indie bookstore that took someone's favorite book and then sent them a similarly recommended book once a month. GENIUS.)

I'm working on several deadlines right now, pretty much playing triage where I work on whatever is most pressing until something else becomes more pressing, and then I work on that until something else becomes more pressing, etc etc. It's a REALLY FUN way to work!
(That is sarcasm. But I can't complain [oh, really, Kiersten? Because I think you can and DO complain, a lot], because I love all the projects I'm working on and the people I work with. Plus I kind of brought it on myself. So.)

In other Very Exciting News, HarperTeen announced the tour dates and stops for Dark Days of Winter! I'll be visiting Salt Lake City, Seattle, and Portland in early March. This makes me Exceedingly Happy, and I hope to see a whole bunch of you!
Now for the third part of the title: NAPTIME. I adore all of you, and hope the run-up to the holidays (or current holidays if you are celebrating Hanukkah, which, happy Hanukkah!) treats you kindly and your days are filled with joy and sweet things.
