Random.org has decided that The Love Goddess’ Cooking School goes to… Joy! And Half a Life goes to… Juliann! Congratulations, ladies. I will contact you shortly for mailing addresses. Big thanks to everyone who participated.
On Saturday Sarah, Stephanie, Joelle, and I attended a 7-author YA panel at Joseph-Beth. It was really cool to get to meet all these living, breathing, working authors and find out hey, they’re just regular people like you and me! I mean, we sort of knew that, right? But it’s still fun to get the in-person reminder. It was also a very diverse group, in terms of genre (not in germs of tenre, which is what I originally typed). Their books range from historical to paranormal romance to contemporary to murder mystery.
For quotes/thoughts/recaps, check out Sarah’s post “Fangirl.” She says pretty much everything I was thinking. The only thing I want to add is this hilarious remark from Saundra Mitchell:
If Romeo & Juliet were written about 30-year-olds, it would be pathetic. At 14, it’s beautiful and tragic.
