Global Geek Week--late!

So this week is Global Geek Week. I've been meaning to post this since the beginning of the week, but have just now found the time. I finished reading through draft 1, which I think I've already said, but I also finished book club book today. So now, all I have to do to be ready for tomorrow's meeting is clean my room and figure out how to look geeky tomorrow! Why you may ask, I'll tell you.

In honor of Global Geek Week, the Bookers are celebrating being a "Geek". A lot of people consider us Geeks because we like to read, and we have a club (through the summer) to read, and some of us write. So to show that we don't care what other people think we're dressing like Geeks and wearing geeky clothes! Sounds fun, right? I thought so too!

I'll be doing a review of The Widow's Season by Laura Brodie soon on my YouTube page, so watch out for it.

I guess I have nothing else to talk abou--


1) My friend Emily has read all of No Title, and yesterday she sent me an email that I would consider "fan-mail". She told me how much she loved the story and get this! She wants a signed copy of the first draft! She said it would mean the world to her! Ahhh! How cool is that?

2) My somehow related cousin, Joyce, has a friend who has a friend who works for a publishing company. Joyce told my grandma at the family reunion that when I get my book all done and edited and am ready to try to publish she'll talk to her friend's friend and send her No Title and we'll see what happens! That's pretty far down the road, but still it's amazing to even begin thinking about it! So...REVISIONS START MONDAY! YAY!

So now I have nothing else to talk about...

Have a wonderful and blessed day!

With eternal love and blessings,
