Post-Conference Giveaway!

Hi there!

I know this post is, like a week and a half overdue. I am so sorry about that.

I have been trying to complete a draft of my WIP to send to betas while I'm out of town (and will probably get NO writing time *sigh*).  And then, TRAGEDY STRUCK.

oh noes, i meltzord cheezsurver. lulz.

I had one of my BEST WRITING DAYS EVER and wrote 3,000 words.  And when I saved, something went wrong.  When I tried to open the file the next day, it WOULDN'T OPEN.

funny pictures - Sorry, I won't be responding to any emails today...something crashed on my computer.

*shakes head* *cries*  At least I have most of the manuscript, but those 3,000 words are gone. *moment of silence for lost words*

ANYWAY, I am finally done mourning and ready to work some more, and ready to post this GIVEAWAY!

I have a signed copy of Nancy Werlin's IMPOSSIBLE

PLUS, some awesome sekrit RENEGADE swag.

(RENEGADE is a SUPER AWESOME book coming out in November from Tor Teen--you want this swag, I promise.)

Enter via the Rafflecopter below. Extra points for commenting on my TWO upcoming blog posts with Conference tidbits. ;)

a Rafflecopter giveaway
Keep being awesome!


  1. Despite my surprise that you are WILLING to give this stuff away, nevertheless, thank you for doing it!

    1. Oh, didn't see I was supposed to write something about backing up my work--I use DropBox, so I can access my writing from anywhere, but it saves locally when I'm not connected to the internet.

      I'm also a habitual saver. Every one or two sentences I reflexively hit COMMAND+S. :)

    2. I hot save every few minutes, too. Unfortunately, the last one messed up. :( *sadness*

      Thanks for entering!

  2. External hard drive for the win! Seriously, best investment ever. Or even a flashdrive.


    1. I was saving onto a thumbdrive, because I've had THREE computers die on me in the last year and a half, but something happened while it was saving. :( And then I've had my husband tell me OVER AND OVER that if I'd been saving onto the computer, there would have been a way to salvage it, but since I was saving directly onto the thumbdrive, it was gone. *sigh*

  3. Yikes!! That's happened to me before. I'll tweet your giveaway!

  4. I don't believe you. Just kidding! You love it when I give you a hard time. Love the kitty pics! Keep at it. Don't make me crack that whip! tee,hee!

  5. Oh boy that bites (about the 3k words) but I will say a brief prayer they will rest in peace. ;)
    I just happen to have my own signed copy of Impossible but I will share your giveaway! :)

    1. Thanks, PK! Next time we'll have to make sure to connect at the conference!

  6. P.S. How do I get that cool little Renegade countdown widget on me blog?

  7. Oh. My. Gosh. I'm sorry. That sucks. I back up all of my work externally, with like 53464132143453 flash drives, memory devices, that sort of thing. Although it's a pain to update them all when I work on something lol.
    Thank you!!!
