Farewell, December. Farewell, 2014. You will kind of be missed. The new year is upon us, and I am not ready. NOT AT ALL.
- I launched the YA Book Cover Choice Awards because I wanted awards that are book cover-focused! And who is better to host it? Me. (Because I’m such a nerd for book covers!) I wished I thought of it earlier, because I know the awards will run into the New Year. (But 2015 will definitely be different! ;) ) The voting for the semi-finals is open. So vote for the covers you want to make it to the final round!
- I’m so excited because so many new projects and resolutions. Eeeeek.
- I have an official launch date for my special project—February 1st! I will talk more about it later, but it’s coming together!
- Charlotte is the best and sent me the best card everrrrrr as well as awesome Christmas gift that I totally love! <3
