I came home at suppertime last night and turned on my computer for the first time that day. And guess what?! I found that Laini Taylor is awarding me a copy of her newly released book Lips Touch: Three Times autographed by herself and her husband, Jim Di Bartolo, who illustrated it. The book I am winning is one of the three prizes for entries in her first kiss contest (see my previous blog). Isn't that fabulous?
If, by any chance, you have missed Laini Taylor's blog Grow Wings it will be well worth your while to get acquainted with this incredibly gifted and energetic author of the Dreamdark; Blackbringer and Dreamdark; Silksinger. She is also the new mother of Clementine, one of the world's cutest baby girls. I don't know where she gets the vitality to do all that she does, including hosting Sunday Scribblings, book signings, conferences and family celebrations and still write an almost daily blog that bursts with happiness and gossipy bits that make one feel that one is getting a long letter from a favorite sister.
Bartolo's illustrations in Laini's books and on their covers, are like jewels in a perfect setting.
Oh, and she has pink hair.
