Dianne, gets to visit her baby at the bookstore as often as she wants now and I couldn't be more proud. Soooooo I had to get a picture with it. Isn't it cute? Only 3 weeks old and feisty as hell. To meet this amazing woman at a signing, check out her page for dates.

If you want the chance to get a top-of-the-line query critique, don't miss your chance to enter. Elana rocks and after she's done with you, your query will too.
So go. Enter. Do your thang. But first, my last Candyland picture series adventure (holy long sentence!), with Sarah Ahiers holding me hostage during a paint ball war.
And then the funniest thing happened...A tiny astronaut floated down from the sky and demanded an end to all paint ball wars. Peace ensued, and we all hugged. Until it got weird.
Enter the contest. And tell me, who would rescue you in a paint ball war?
I'm pretty sure my pool boy would be first in line to take the bullet.
