My website has officially launched! After months of melding creativity with technical mumbo-jumbo, my wonderful web designer, Stefanie Gilmour of S. Gilmour Design has given me the green light.  Woo-hoo!

To celebrate, I want to give something away! Ideally, it would be my book, BLIND SPOT, but since that isn’t due out until Fall 2012, I can’t. I can giveaway books by my favorite authors though! This week I head to the SCBWI-LA conference where three of my favorite authors just happen to be speaking: Laurie Halse Anderson, Libba Bray, and John Green. So on August 30th, three lucky people will win a book by one of these authors!

Entering the giveaway is easy. Just leave a comment at the end of this blog. Want to increase your chances of winning? You’ll get an additional entry for each of the following:

* ‘liking’ me on my Facebook fan page

* signing up for my newsletter

* ‘following’ me on twitter

* ‘following’ my RSS feed

That’s a total of five entries you can get! Want a bonus entry? Retweet or mention this giveaway on your blog or facebook page! Just be sure to list each of your extra entries in your comment.

So, poke around the site, click on the follow buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, and my blog feed. Sign up for my newsletter. And if you want to take part in the giveaway, leave a comment. But hurry, the giveaway ends August 30th!

Thanks for visiting! I hope you make it a regular stop!
