That's the age of a toddler.
I've managed to raise a toddler and not let it choke, or eat mud, or break an arm!
I am so honored to work with such a wonderful crew of bloggers and authors and to write for such brilliant readers!
The encouragement you all provide me is astounding. Truly. I would not have made it this far without y'alls Tweets, FB comments, E-mails and Youtube comments.
In the past year I have finished two novels, have queried those two novels and have begun hosting blog tours here on MPB.
Also, MPB has a new look, and will continue to primp in the coming weeks!
I've taken part in Change Write Now, meeting a few of my new favorite people, Pam from Bookalicious, Sarah, & CJ!
I've been able to support a new class of Debut Authors, the class of 2K12 and am excited that at least two of my friends will be a part of the debut class of 2K13!
I've made new friends! Both of my Kelsey's, of Reading or Breathing, and of Kelsey Sutton, my Cindy, of Books Complete Me, and my Miranda, of Just Read Books, are wonderful crit and support partners!
Grace, from Words Like Silver, reminds me of how much has changed in the few years that separate us.
Amber, from Pageturners, Kristi, from The Story Siren, Katie, from MundieMoms, Andye, from ReadingTeen, Amy, also from ReadingTeen, Tara, from Hobbitsies, and Yara, from Once Upon a Twilight, continue to be stalwart supporters of MPB!
If I tried to list the authors who have honored me with their support, their kind words and their faith this year I would inevitably leave someone out, so I'll just say thanks to you all, but especially to Kat Rosenfield, who trusted me with her very first blog tour when it would be mine, as well!
And lastly, my readers! Oh, my readers. <3
Whether you lurk behind the scenes, are consistent tweeters and commenters or are friends who so lovingly read MPB to point out my grammatical errors, I adore you and if I could I would give you all a fresh-baked cookie. Though it would not be from my oven. Because eating a cookie I baked wouldn't be a gift, that would be an insult.
FINALLY! A GIVEAWAY!
Because of current family situations I was not up for hosting 2,000 Mod Podge Books this go around, but I am giving away two of the most highly-anticipated books of the year!
A finished copy of The Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas and an ARC of Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry!
All you have to do is fill out the rafflecopter below and I will announce the winner at some point. If you've been reading this blog for two years, you know I tend to fail at announcing winners "on time." Needless to say the giveaway will be up for a while.
Thanks for all the good.
