New Give-Away Rules & Novel Published

This morning I wrote:

I wrote a novel.
Yes. Because I don't have enough to do with running a photography business, learning to tattoo, being a full time mom to 4 kids all under the age of 10, and running my household.
It's bad ass, if I may say so myself!
It was slotted to be released in October of 2009 but because of complications with my little belly Moose, I had to push off the drop date.

I just got off the phone with my NEW publisher (I loathed the guy who was incharge of my account with the old publisher!) and the book is copyrighted, the ISBN number is assigned, and they emailed me the barcode to attach to the cover image for final printing! AAIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
More info, some snippets from the novel, and extra fun stuff about it to come! Should be in all major book chains and available online at my publisher and by end of May!!!!

The giveaway was going to be based on a vote for who had the best psycho ex story.

I got an email from a reader.  She had a very valid point.  Not everyone has a psycho ex (some of you are lucky).  And while the novel was LOOSELY inspired by psycho exes (not the one who thinks she inspired it though...sorry snuffleupagus, save your narcissism for your bathroom mirror) it is not all about psycho exes so here is the new scoop for the give away:

Comment on this post with your favorite author and book.
When the novel releases, I will do a drawing.  2 readers will get a copy of the novel.

You're right my deary...this is more fair.  Thank you for pointing out the error of my excitement this morning!

Yay! My favorite author right now (because it changes) is this French author named Muriel Barbery who wrote a book called "The Elegance of the Hedgehog." I read it in its English version recently and it was very good and different!

My favorite author is Leon Uris and my two favorite books by him are "Trinity" and "Redemption" (which is the sequel to "Trinity"). I have read both of these books at least 6 times each if not more and I love the way he tells the story and makes me feel like I am there with the characters.
