Happy Monday!

Holy frijoles, people. Bad Taste in Boys comes out...tomorrow. I'm all like this:

Personalize funny videos and birthday eCards at JibJab!
I'm a happy mad scientist!


I am also apparently a happy pickle. Which sounds a lot pervier than it really is.


If that's not enough excitement, Night of the Giving Dead starts TODAY! You can bid on ARCS, signed books, critiques, and lots of other fun prizes. And there are grand prizes, one of which rhymes with windle and the other of which rhymes with fix grunth plighting tentorship. If that doesn't pique your curiosity then...well, you're a lot more normal than me.

And there's one more bit of excitement that I'd like to share. The people of Delacorte are moving their offices, which means PACKING. And like the rest of us, when they pack, they FIND THINGS they didn't even know they had. Like ARCs.

One of the best things about this whole experience has been YOU GUYS. Your comments crack me up. So I'm giving away a personalized BTIB ARC today to one random person who comments on this post. It's my way of saying thank you for being awesome. Comment before 7 PM EST to win! And if you follow me on Twitter, make sure to check out the giveaway there too!

I can promise I will be the first in my bookstore to buy it! Come to Indiana to do a book signing so I can get the author to dedicate it her favorite "Timewarp" partnner...

I am beyond excited about reading BTIB!!! Congratulations on your book birthday finally arriving!

Just out of curiosity, why a pickle?

I like being random, and winning things. Pickle juice.

Also, Night of the Giving Dead - so awesome. When you can combine fun and a really great cause you know you are doing some good in the world.

Happy Early Book Birthday!!!

I like the pickle picture because it has a nice odd quality to it, but the mad scientist looks even better. I was unaware they could have such sincere eyes. :P

Thanks for the chance to win BTIB! EXCITING!

Also, the verification word is 'vanshies,' which makes me think of banshees, but with vans...
