Great Opportunity

Julie Leto is doing some great giveaways at her blog, plotmonkeys.com! She's not only giving away a chapter a day of her upcoming paranormal romance, PHANTOM PLEASURES, but she's also sweetening the pot by drawing for a $20 Amazon/Borders gift card per day chosen among those who leave a comment.

Sounds like a great opportunity to me!


Wheel of Fortune

Wheel Of Fortune Auditions were held at Derby Lane in Saint Petersburg, Florida, on Friday, March 21, 2008. Here's a photo of me with Vanna and Pat.

My author friend, Tara Randel, and I decided to check out the Wheelmobile Wheel of Fortune event. The crowds were enormous. We arrived a little early, yet there were a zillion people ahead of us in line.

Here's a photo of Tara:

We each filled out the information sheets so that we'd have a chance to audition. Attendees were divided up into three groups. In our group we guestimated somewhere between 600-1000 people. Approximately 40 names (out of our group) were drawn randomly and sadly neither of us were chosen (can you believe it?!). Unfortunately, because of the crowds or perhaps the venue, we weren't able to see much of the auditions.

However, we still had lots of fun people watching. Even better, we followed up the evening by eating yummy Mexican food!

Diana's Blog

She makes several great points. One of her suggestions is to judge contests because it will help improve your own writing. She also says nice things about me, which I kinda enjoy! -- KC [of the swelled head]


Happy Saturday!
