Five on a Friday

Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a great week. Next week is sure to be super for writing as both kids will be in camp (so looking forward to it!). It's Kung Fu camp which is inside and all day and fun.
BTW, if you haven't tried a martial arts, I so think you should go out and do it today. Kicking, punching, katas. It's awesome! And that's not even mentioning the cute gi you get to wear.

Here are my five for the week:

1) I keep forgetting to mention and thank Adventures in Children's Publishing for THE EMERALD TABLET being voted as a winner in their Underappreciated YA Poll. Yay for THE EMERALD TABLET!

2) For anyone into way cool 3D game art, my Kung Fu friend, Erik McKenney, is a finalist in the Unearthly Challenge 2009. I love looking at all the entries, but of course I'm partial in thinking his is the best!

3) Huge thank you to everyone who has entered the contest to win MATCHED and LINGER! I'm planning on a new contest starting Monday to give away DELIRIUM by Lauren Oliver and THE ETERNAL ONES by Kirsten Miller, so make sure to come back by.

4) In a week, I'm off to Virginia for a week! Awesome Jessica Lee Anderson will be joining me for ALA (so excited!). I plan to make sure to see The Library of Congress this time around (have never done this). More Virginia vacation plans next week!

5) I have a writing day today, so I'm off to write!

Have a great weekend!

Congrats on winning. I nominated you.

Have fun at ALA and thanks for having another contest.

I'm hoping to get some writing done this weekend too.

Happy writing and happy Virginia. I like the new pic you have up!

I think I'm going to end up back on a late night writing schedule now that kids are home from school. Have fun in Virginia and congrats on being underappreciated :)

PJ Hoover said...

Thanks, Lydia! Right back at you!

Thanks, Natalie! I totally appreciate it. I need to set a goal for how much writing I plan to get done this weekend.

Thanks, Marcia! I figured it was time for a change in the pics.

Funny, Sherrie, as recently the early morning thing has been tempting me. I may try it for a week and see how it goes.
