1) My friend Carol is walking in the Breast Cancer 3-day. That's pretty awesome. Her donation page is here: CLICK.
Did you know that ONE IN EIGHT women in the US will get breast cancer?
That's a lot of women--- enough that I wager everyone reading this knows someone personally who has dealt with breast cancer in some capacity.
So, if you have a dollar or two, please donate to Carol's 3-day (or anyone's 3-day, if you'd rather). Carol is only something like $350 short of her goal. If you post on your blog about the Breast Cancer 3-day, I'll enter you to win a signed copy of AS YOU WISH. Let me know in the comments where you reposted.
BUT WAIT, there's more. If you donate even one dollar to Carol's 3-day, you get a second entry-- just forward me the little confirmation email at jacksonapearce@gmail.com. So go forth. Enter. Win things. Contest closes one week from today.

So you've entered, right? Yes? Ok, on to two other points--

2) I totally forgot I was holding a contest for an ARC of SHIVER by Maggie Stiefvater over at YouTube (one entry for commenting on my This Is Your Life Maggie video). BUT GUESS WHAT? Since Maggie was in town a few weeks ago and we frolicked and ate preservative-free food together, that ARC is now a SIGNED ARC. So you should go enter and I'll go ahead and close the contest tomorrow at MIDNIGHT. TELL YOUR FRIENDS, ppl.

3) CANDOR by Pam Bachorz came out on Tuesday. This is the cover:



So, Pam used to live in Celebration, FL, which is Disney's semi-creepy planned community. After living there, Pam wrote a book about a really-creepy planned community. It's very big brother/super spy/clever and you should read it. It's also a GREAT boy book in a YA world mostly devoid of boy books.


P.S.: Today is DOG DAY! Ahhhhhhhhh

AH! I live so close to Celebration, we almost moved there. But then we decided that it's kinda creepy.

I plan to buy your book, so this is just to help a sister out. Good luck! http://sarahquigley.com/blog/?p=580

I hope it helps raise awareness in some way or another!
