Winner of TLS, and Writing For Charity


Hey all-

So glad you enjoyed the short story. I've never been much of a short story writer (you know, because of my brevity issues) but I may have to write more just for the fun of it in the future. I just posted the story here on my own blog, so if you haven't seen it yet, you can check it out by CLICKING HERE.

ARCs of THE LOST SAINT finally arrived--and they're beautiful!! Freaking gorgeous is pretty much the only way I can properly describe them. I'll show you pictures in a minute and tell you which one of my lucky readers has won one . . . But first, while I have everyone's attention . . .

I wanted to tell you about an exiting a worthwhile event called WRITING FOR CHARITY. We at A Book For Every Child are on a mission to put a book in the hands of every needy child out there, but we need your help! And you get something out of it in return.

If you're in Utah, come join us this Saturday and the Writing for Charity Daytime Writing Workshop. 25+ nationally published authors are donating their time to run a fun writing workshop. Come meet the authors, ask any writing/publishing related questions you might have, get some of your own writing critiqued by a pro, and attend a multi-author book signing.

Where: The Waterford School in Sandy, Utah
When: Saturday, August 21st at 10:00 am
Cost: $70

But what if I'm not a writer, you ask? Well if you're a book lover, comedy lover, or music lover--or just looking for something fun to do on a Saturday night. Then come join us for the Writing for Charity Evening Extravaganza. This part of the event is open to everyone (including families and children) and will feature a "celebrity author panel," comedy troupe, live music, and a silent auction. Come meet Shannon Hale, Brandon Mull, Brandon Sanderson, James Dashner, Sara Zarr, Jessica Day George, Ally Condie, (and me) and get books signed and ask them any burning questions you might have.

Where: The Waterford School in Sandy
When: Saturday, August 21st at 6:30 pm
Cost: $15 for an individual, or $25 for a family

And if you're not in Utah, you can still help the charity event by bidding on items in the silent auction, or making a direct donating.

Okay, okay, on with the beauty that is the ARC of THE LOST SAINT.

What did I tell you?--They're gorgeous!

And look: Sisters!

Don't they look so great next to each other?
