That's right, the woman who brought you Cool Girl, Tips for Living a Kickass Life, and giveaway upon frickin-frackin giveaway (I swear, every month she gives away more books than I accumulate in one year) has an AGENT!
Carol has signed with http://navigatingtheslushpile.blogspot.com/
I am so flippin' proud of my Carol. I caught her at the point of giving up more than once. And most of those times I was ready to throw in the towel too. We'd spend hours lamenting ourselves and complimenting the other. But she pressed on and it paid off! Yeah, sorry, totally mushy here, but I am just so freaking happy and inspired. I want to hold hands with her and skip, while wearing Lederhosen and holding lollipops.
Carol is giving away a freaking Kindle (among other fly things), and Vickie Motter is giving away a first page critique!
I am giving away a $15 Barnes and Noble gift card. I am requiring that you follow me and Carol, and leave a comment at her blog and here in my comments. Simple enough?
