1) Okay, I'm starting with the biggest. Now, some of you may have already seen it--because I'm pretty sure everyone and their brother follows her blog (and if you don't, you should!!). But the absolutely amazing Elana Johnson finally has her cover art and OMG it is GORGEOUS! If you have not seen it get thee to her blog and check it out. I guarantee there will be much ooo-ing and ahh-ing.
2) I love watching great things happen to incredible people, so I'm not exaggerating when I say that I totally SQUEED when I read Tere Kirkland's announcement on Tuesday. She has an agent you guys! A huge, mega-awesome agent! I won't tell you who it is because she put it so much better than I did. But here's the post. Hop over there and check it out!
3) Okay, I'm pretty sure you guys are aware of the Epic Giveaways we have going on WriteOnCon, but on the off chance that you've been living under a rock or something, go here to see the complete list. Seriously, I SO wish I could enter to win these! *pouts*
4) I'm also pretty sure you've heard about the Monthly Live Events WriteOnCon will be hosting. (Remember Monday's big announcement?) Well, I don't know if you noticed, but there was a sentence in there about more names to be announced and I promise guys--we haz some!!!! We're just quadruple confirming before we post the names, but keep your eyes out for an update, hopefully next week. (Yep, I'm teasing again. Apparently once I start I can't stop) :)
5) And--last but certainly not least--I'm super excited about my interview on the Operation Awesome Blog. The girls there have been so sweet to post interviews with all of us WriteOnCon girls, and this week it's my turn. And I must admit, I'm always SUPER scared to do these interview things because I'm always worried I'll be like, the post that kills their blog (their 'jumping the shark' moment--if you will). And the pressure's doubly high for a blog called OPERATION AWESOME! I mean, what if I can't live up to their awesome? So if you love me at all--or just, yanno, wanna discover a fabulous new blog--PLEASE hop over there and leave a comment, so they know at least a few people read the interview. Pretty please? *bats eyelashes*
Okay, there you go. Five Fantastic Reasons to be excited on a Friday. But what about you guys. Did I miss anything? What are you excited about today?
