Congratulations to Sara of Around the Barrios who is the proud winner of a signed copy of PJ Hoover's fantabulous middle-grade fantasy THE EMERALD TABLET! Sara, email me at barrieDOTsummyATgmailDOTcom. Then my people will get in touch with PJ's people who will get in touch with your people. Or you can leave a comment on PJ's blog. Or PJ will find you at your blog. She's tenacious that way. Also, thank you to everyone who entered.
I hope you're all enjoying the above photo with Child #4's current winner-choosing shoes. I swear that child has more footwear than the rest of the family put together. We can only afford her shoe habit because she's eight and her shoes don't break the bank. I predict that about five years from now, we'll be living on pinto beans.
And now, loud obnoxious drum roll, I'd like to introduce the cover of I So Don't Do Spooky!!!! Sherry short for Sherlock) Holmes Baldwin returns to solve a second mystery in this series. A mystery involving a stalker and her step-mother, The Ruler. Yikes! I So Don't Do Spooky will be in bookstores this fall 2009.
ISN'T THIS A VERY VERY GORGEOUS COVER? I wish I had a high resolution jpeg of it and I'd post a cover HUGE enough to take over your screen! Maybe your entire house!
Here is a little shrine of ARCs (Advance Reader Copies). See how they gleam and glimmer? No, it's not just my amateur photography.
And here's the brand new cover for the trade paperback edition of I So Don't Do Mysteries. It should be out sometime in the fall too.
Ah....but life is grand.
