AAAAAEEEEEEEIIIiiiiiiii! (And A Giveaway)

My friends! I have wonderful writerly news, and I am going to scream it from the top of the bloggy mountaintops!


Yes, it’s true! I have just signed with the very cool Jason Yarn from Paradigm.  The world is full of roses and butterflies and stardust.  I feel that this will be a fantastic partnership, huzzah huzzah!  So I’m excited.  And when I’m excited, I want to celebrate.  And how do I want to celebrate? By having my first giveaway ever!

To enter, just leave a comment with an email so I can contact you. For extra points (but not extra entries) say something witty with the words “exquisite” “He-Man” or “narwhal” included.  Because I dearly love exquisite battles between He-Man and narwhals, or whatever wonderful thing you come up with.  Or just make me laugh.  There is nothing better than laughing.

“Ah, but my dearest Mercedes!” you are saying.  (And I know that is what you are saying.)  “What I really want to know is: what will I win? One cannot enter a giveaway without something being, well, given away!  Whatever shall it be?”

To which I answer, “That is for me to know and you to find out.” 

“Srsly?” you question.


“For realz?”

For realz.

“Wn dd I strt spekng n txt spk?”

I dunno, but stop it.

One week from today I will use to choose a comment at, you guessed it, random.  The winner will receive ONE book from my personal stash (and believe me, it’s an eclectic collection), THE BEST COOKIE RECIPE IN THE WORLD, and something crafty that I have made.  What will that be, you wonder?  Well, me too.  I won’t know until I make it especially for you. 

So yay!  Hooray!  I’m wonderfully excited about working with Jason and won’t you celebrate with me?  😀
