Two for Tuesday

1. I met Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl, and Anastacia Hopcus Friday night. It was a lot of fun, a blast. Something about meeting successful people gives me the drive to be successful. I got some photos I wanted to post all about the event today. But being married to a genius comes at a price. You see I'm writing to you from a comp that I believe was probably originally constructed in the 90's. As  you can see it's still kicking. But not without flaws. Flaws a normal person would have kicked it to the curb for a long time ago. Flaws my nerdy husband finds endearing and rather than kicking it to the curb he just uses the opportunity to implore creativity. His creativity means for my pc to function it needs more extensions than an octopus. I know what you're thinking--Beth, what does any of this have to do with the Beautiful Darkness Tour. Well, one such extension is a black rectangular box with lots of slots for different cards. One such slot a perfect fit for my memory card. The problem is said extension seems to be MIA. Therefore, I can not post the pics. So I guess, all of our writing celebs must wait until a later date because let's face it: a picture is worth 1000 words.
2. Let's talk winners. (Something you're far more interested in, I'm sure). The winner of the hardback set of The Hunger Games is Jenn Draiker and the winner of Kiss of Death is Reading Lassie. (Sorry, Lassie I couldn't get the link to work). Please shoot me an email to bethfred08@gmail.com so I can get your books to you.
This is really three but who cares. I have a special contest coming up which I will post as soon as I spot the rectangular box with lots of slots. I think you need to see this one to get the real effect. ;)


  1. Sounds like you had a good time at the tour! To bad for the photos, but I understand the geeky/nerdy husband. Though I don't have one that loves computers I have a friend of mine who is married to someone identical!!!!!

    YAY I WON I WON I WON!!!!! I'm so excited! I'm so excited! I can't wait to get my hands on them and read them all!!! Thank you so much!

    Btw - I emailed you, and I swear I've met my 1000 words for the day!!!

  2. Darn I didn't win. *pouts* *stomps foot*
    nah... j/k Jen is awesome ... so glad she won!

    And can't wait to see what you have in store.

  3. I love hanging out with successful people too! Computer probs I know about. I spend all my time writing on a 10 yr old laptop :-D Yay Jenn!
