Woo hoo! Head over to AlienSkin Magazine, everybody!
Because my short story, Shoe, is up there :) Woot!
Also, I have an article up at the Every Day Fiction blog today - go comment for me, and make me feel loved :D
Finally, the fantastic Tabitha is having a book give-away; you could win a pack of up to seven books, including ARCs*!
All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on the post. Whee! Books! ...Because we all know I need more books to read.
On which note, the final bit of newsiness for the day: I've revamped the sidebars a bit. In the righthand sidebar I now have a gadget to keep interested persons informed of what I'm currently reading, plus links to the Towering TBR Pile of Doom (aka, all the books I own but haven't read) and my Books I've Read list. Much fun and bounciness!
Given that the Towering TBR Pile of Doom was, as of last week when I recounted, somewhere around 230 books, I have much a lot of reading to do. And of course, being slightly insane, I've set myself a goal: I'm aiming to get the TBR Pile under 200 by January 27, when I start fulltime work. Am I crazy? Given I read 33 books in 2007, 33 books in 2008, and as of last week when I started the challenge had read 33 books in 2009 (talk about consistency!), probably. Am I still going to give it a go? Absolutely!
Current GTTBRPU200** count: 6 books down, 24 to go >:)
Now, don't forget: my story Shoe, my article at Every Day Fiction, and Tabitha's contest! :D
* ARC = Advanced Reading Copy; pre-print edition for reviewers, etc; highly coveted ;)
** GTTBRPU200 = Get The To-Be-Read Pile Under 200 :D
