On the road again.

I love travel.

Oh, I stress and I flail and I wave my hands around and I wail about how much time it's going to kill, but at the end of the day, I love travel. I love that moment of weightlessness when the plane leaves the ground, when you realizes you're no longer strictly under gravity's command. I love knowing that when I land, I'll be breathing different air, in a different city, where the rules are different. Plus, it doesn't hurt that I tend to be crazy-productive on planes.

(I am, however, seriously considering bringing CASH-MONEY BRIBES on my flight to Montreal. "Hi. I'm a working author, and I have deadlines. I will give you twenty dollars to not recline your seat on my laptop for the first three hours of this trip.")

My bags are packed for San Diego. I'm not sure whether I'll have Internet, but if I do, I'll keep you posted as to what's going on. If you're going to be there, you need to come to Saturday night's panel. Trust me on this one. You'll be sorry if you don't. If you're not going to be there, I'll miss you, I'll see you when I'm back, and I'll be awesome.

Because I can. Because that's what it means to be a Disney Halloweentown Princess.

Watch me.

ROSEMARY AND RUE giveaway #7!

First off, giveaway #6 was won by stormsdotter, for her fantastic (and first) suggestion of fan-art. stormsdotter, email me your mailing address, and I'll pop an ARC into the mail for you when I get home.

Now, it's difficult to do fan-art for a book you haven't read yet, so...

I am taking entries in three categories. Photography (take a picture you think represents what you've heard about the book; post with as much or as little doctoring as you like, make a poster, whatever suits your fancy); icons (text, graphic, whatever makes you happy); and all other (actual art, collages, photo manipulation to turn people into elves...).

Post your entries here. I'll leave this open for two weeks, and then announce the winner or winners, depending on quality and quantity of entries. Please feel free to comment on and assess the entries as they go up.

Game on!
