Hope you all are having a fantastic Friday! As I didn't have anything planned to post about today, I thought I would have a quick bookish round-up post instead.
First of all, I recently picked the winners of my 3 years giveaway. They were
Stroudsburg, PA. Authors who will be there include Alissa Grosso (author of Popular), Amy Holder (author of The Lipstick Laws), and Cyn Balog (author of Fairy Tale, Sleepless, and Starstruck) along with a few others. If by some chance, you'll be going as well- let me know (via email, twitter, etc.) I would love to say hi. And for those of you who aren't, don't worry- I'll probably be posting a small recap of the event along with my IMM on Sunday.

I also recently asked by Corinne, a writer for a few online publications, to share an article she recently posted about self publishing. Here's the link in case you would like to see it.
Scholastic also has had a few interesting things come about recently.
