Tales from the Birthday...

You were expecting Tales from the Bookshelf!

Today is a little break from the norm. Hey, it's my birthday! I can do that if I want...

Yes, February 16th. I missed Valentine's Day by 26 & 1/2 hours. Of course, if anyone wants to get me flowers or take me out to dinner for my birthday, it's tough to do around Valentine's Day. In our household, we tend to lump the two together. Which is fine with me!

Today also marks exactly one month - four weeks - until the final release in my YA series, The Circle of Friends. Kinda scary! I'm doing a book release party for this one and have teamed up with a local teen organization to raise money and books. The hotel even gave us the meeting room for free.

Thursday is the last day to enter my Mystery Man contest for this book. Just guess the name of the male character opposite Heather and send his name to wolferock AT earthlink.net No early reviewers. Wild hairy guesses allowed. One and only hint - the name is Biblical.

And no extra credit if you try guessing my age today, either! Unless you guess really, really low.

My honey took me shopping on Monday as well! Some of the stuff below is his, but most of it he purchased for my birthday. My family sent cash, although most of that is going to books. (All I asked for was pre-orders of Book V - LOL!)

Thank you everyone!
No hints Crystal - make 'em guess.
And Lee, after seeing your post about the tombstone, yes, safe to say I am younger than you. However, I was around that year!
