Sunday Ramblings……

I was away at BEA 2012 all week but I had a few giveaways running that ended last night. Time to announce some winners!

Blood of the Demon by Rosalie Lario giveaway – winner is : Michelle!

Flicker by Kaye Thornbrugh giveaway – winner is bn100!

Queen of Swords by Katee Robert’s giveaway – winner is maiden veil!

Congratulations everyone! I'll be sending an email out to all the winners today!

I’ll be having a few BEA wrap up posts this week once I get settled back in to real life. I had a great time, met a lot of bloggers, librarians and booksellers, found great books & most importantly to me ate awesome food! Bare with me this week as I try to catch up on my blogging. I will have a big giveaway going up soon to help pass the time as I get busy writing.

Here are a few posts you may have missed while I was away:

Book Blogger Confessions – There is still time to link up! This week we talked about choosing our next read and balancing review/fun reading. Write a post – leave a comment. Join in the discussion!

Myra McEntire stopped by the blog for a quick interview to celebrate the upcoming release of Timepiece. (I did not get to meet her at BEA and I’m so sad about that. Damn epic BEA lines!!

Giveaway! My Saturday Spotlight this week is author Brooklyn James and she’s giving away a copy of her critically acclaimed The Boots My Mother Gave Me as well as a copy of Vigilare – the 1st book in her paranormal trilogy.

I’m busy…busy unpacking from my trip so I’ll leave you with this comic from Bizarro Blog by Dan Piraro. He would like the term “Palm Potatoes” to make it into the lexicon. If you ever see me I am pretty much doing one of these two things…either sitting and doing nothing or walking while using my phone. Sad but true.


I hope you all had a great week!
