Cupcake Swag Winner!

And the cupcake war swag winner is...

Leslie Uhl!!!!

Leslie, please send me
your snail mail address and
I'll get your swag to you pronto.

Thank you SO much to everyone
who entered. This was fun!!!

It's been an exciting week here what with getting ready to go to Texas, doing the copy edits on one book, page proofing another book, finishing a manuscript that is due next month, oh, and there are two proposals sitting in the wings that are half written and also due next month.

Then I somehow volunteered to raffle off walk on spots in
two of my books. The first will be in BOOKS CAN BE DECEIVING, the first in my library mystery series set to be released in July 2011.

The charity event is Dinner in the Stacks, put on by the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library and the money will be used for teen programs.

The second will be in my third cupcake bakery mystery
DEATH BY THE DOZEN set to be released in Oct 2011. The event is the inaugural Cupcake Love-In, which will benefit single moms with cancer and a no-kill animal shelter. Needless to say, there's been a lot of time devoted to the promo of these wonderful causes.

So when I tell you there is no recipe this week, I am sure you will understand. Sometimes you have to know when to blog and when to order in a bucket of extra crispy original recipe.

Okay, now I have to stock the frig, clean the house, do five loads of laundry and pack and I'm off to Texas.

For any of you in Texas, please pop on by! We'd love to see ya!

  1. Good luck with it all, Jenn! You didn't even mention all the rest of the stuff you're doing...parenting, running a never stops! Hope y'all have a great tour.

  2. What a great time... You will get to see so much, airports, cabs, hotels, if you are lucky, a radio station, a book shop and then repeat.

    The Alamo isn't what you think it is anyway.

    Hope you have full houses every day!


  3. Wish I could be there! but to quote Stevie Nicks, or maybe it's Natalie Maines, I'm "too far from Texas."

  4. Have fun in Texas! Wish I could hitch a ride.


  5. First a shout-out of congrats to Leslie for the swag win. And Jenn - those causes are wonderful! Kudos to you for supporting them. Have a great time on your Texas tour! Can't wait to hear all about it when you return.
