Three birthday items

Interview & Giveaway
What more appropriate activity to do on my birthday than to talk endlessly about myself?  Lovely Jessica over at the Spinecracker, a totally fun and smart new blog, is giving me just that chance...at her inaugural "Behind the Pen" interview... with an eclectic set of interview questions.

We discuss pet peeves, what it's like to be an author on release day, TV shows and more. And, I'm giving away a copy of Mind Games along with a CHOCOLATE TREAT to one lucky commenter. Woo! Come visit! And comment to win!!

Pull ups challenge
In other news, I might need an extension on my 5 pull-ups challenge! Who set the date as the end of September? I think it was my evil doppelganger! Or is it my evil doppelganger who hasn't worked on it in a week? Either way I'm afraid I've backslid. Nooooooo! I'll find out later during the workout portion of my birthday. But maybe I'll still make it. I have one week and two days.

Books:
I started my first Judith Ivory yesterday, Untie my Heart. OMG, what rock have I been hiding under? I can't believe how good it is! Thanks to my fabulous critique partner, Tumperkin, for the rec! Any leads on what Ivory to read next are appreciated.

Happy birthday! My favorite Ivory was written under her original Judy Cuevas name. Bliss is out of print, but so excellent!

Christine said...

Carolyn!!! Very happy birthday to you!!! Hope you had a great day! xoxo


I haven't read anything by Juidth Ivory, but have been meaning to. I believe Black Lace I think it's called? has been on my list to read for a while. But if you recommend Untie My Heart, I may start there instead.

Go for the 5 pull ups!!! YOu have a solid week left to train! It'll be a good outlet for all this pre-release excitement! ;p
