First of all, thank you SO much to everyone who entered the query contest last week! I had a fabulous time on my cruise and actually managed to *gasp* work while I was on vacation.
That's when you know you love what you do--when you find yourself sitting in the Atlantis hotel in the Bahamas and breaking out your laptop to work on edits instead of gambling with the hubs. :) I know, I'm a total dork. But the good news is, I got my edit letter for book one from my editor right before I left on the cruise, and I actually managed to work through all the edits by the time I got back home on Friday. Woot! I still have to go over them again and tweak, but it's mostly ready to go back. Yay for finishing ahead of deadline. Now to get back to drafting book two, which has been giving me fits.
But y'all don't care about all that right? You're probably like--stop with the vacation stories and tell us who won already. :) So without further adieu, here are the winners....
*I think this is Sierra's second time winning something in one of my contests. Random.org loves you, chica!

Oh, and though I don't do book reviews on here anymore, I do have a recommendation from my vacation reading. I tore through this book on the plane and finished in on the second day of vacay because I couldn't put it down. FAB-U-LOUS voice and the damn thing made me cry in public. So seriously, if you're looking for a great YA read, go get this one now.

Alright, that's all for now, we'll return to our regularly scheduled programming on Wednesday! :)
