You don't need to enter me for your contest, though it's amazing! I just wanted to say I was sorry not to introduce myself at ALA. Felt like I was impeding on your time, just being in the booth during your signing, but wished I'd had the opp to say hi and hug on another Blink author! Best wishes for your book birthday, from one firstborn to another...

Lorie Ann Grover said...

Lisa! I'm ordering your book right now! Rain check on the hug! Thank you!

Wow. The All Girls Allowed site was not what I expected, but I'm glad it wasn't. That was very informative.
