Tell The Truth Tuesday: The Overly Giddy Edition

1. I'd planned to have a meaningful, inspiring post for you guys today. I'd even started one--it's saved in my drafts folder.

2. BUT... yesterday was a crazy awesome day, filled with crazy awesome things, that made my brain all crazy and awesome and incapable of doing anything except spewing out terrible sentences like this one.

3. Which meant the idea of writing a relatively coherent blog post went out the window.

4. As you can probably tell, by the lameness of this post. (I'm not even sure if this statement qualifies as a new confession--but I'm counting it anyway.)

5. At this point you're probably wondering WHAT could possibly have me so flummoxed. And really, there were MANY things.

6. Most of which would require FAR too much explanation for my current incoherent state.

7. But there was also THIS.

8. It's not every day a good friend of mine reveals her book cover--especially a supremely awesome one.

9. (Um... and her post may or may not be live. I forgot what time she told me she was scheduling it for)

10. But never fear--because her cover is also up on Goodreads, where you would be crazy to not go mark it "to read." And it's also up on Amazon, where you should seriously SERIOUSLY consider pre-ordering. So feel free to go take care of those things and then hop back over to her blog. By then I'm sure the post will be live and you can tell her how crazy awesome her cover is. Because it is CRAZY AWESOME.

Huge hugs and congrats Sarah. It could NOT happen to a sweeter, more talented writer!!!!!!

And... that is pretty much all I'm capable of (besides a whole lot of staring at the lovely lovely cover and then staring some more.) So I'm going to wrap this pitiful post up with a promise of better things to come tomorrow.

In the meantime, what about you guys? Anything you want to unload? Feel free to do so in the comments!


  1. Ooh, I just visited her and saw her cover! Totally fabulous!

  2. Congrats to Sarah.

    A good blogger balances the serious with the fun--you do it well Shannon.

    On my mind today is wondering when we will see the sun again. I have accused my family of secretly relocating us to Seattle with all the cloudy/rain days we have had the past three months.

  3. That's a GORGEOUS cover! :) And this post made perfect sense to me the whole way through, probably because I've gotten only a few hours of sleep over the last two days.

    Also, I'm totally reading your blog while listening to my Environmental Science lecture. So if a couple of words on this comment have been replaced by, "soil, commons, sustainability," I apologize. :) It can be hard to not type what you hear.

  4. Congrats to Sarah!

    I finally finished editing my upper MG fantasy and am now trying to find beta readers for it. That's my news. :)

  5. Wow, that cover is amazing! Thanks for the heads-up, Shan. And congratulations, Sarah!!! :-)

  6. Congrats to Sarah on the accomplishment and the beautiful cover.

    Congrats to Shannon on containing her flummoxed self long enough to share it.

  7. Congratulations to Sarah! Wow, that is a great cover . . .

  8. <333. Thanks for the shout-out, Shannon. You are the best!

    P.S. You have a tag called "The Amazingness of Sarah Wylie"! Hahaha.

    P.S.S. Is it wrong that I'm totally awaiting the day OrRyanGosling and Eva Mendes (Eva Mendes!) call it quits? Because I am. I'm so glad I got that off my chest :)

  9. Cool cover, but y' know, I was thinking it was news about YOU! Though I have to say that it's awesome that you got so excited for your friend :)

  10. Congrats to Sarah! Off to see the crazy awesomeness ~ :)
