Party Wrap-up on Day 14: The Tour. The Party.

Thanks so much for joining in on my celebration, everybody! Today is the last day of the official party, and I'll be fervently writing down all the entries and throwing them into a hat to find our winners. I'll start announcing the winners of the grand prizes by Friday between 8 - 9 AM (PST)! You'll want to stop by and see if you're one of the winners as soon as you can after that time, as the first winner to contact me with their choice of the gift packs will get their first choice!

Okay, one last party game...

And this one is a lot of fun. I have many secrets hidden around my website. To find them, all you need to do is mouse over any of my website pages at until you see this icon:

Click on it and you *should* find something very interesting! Come back here and tell me what you found in the comments for a final entry into the grand prize contest (please don't share *where* you found the clue, as this has to be just as hard for everybody). Remember, you only have until midnight tonight (PST) for this one and if you find more than one sekrit, you'll get more than one entry! Have fun!

You also have two more (easy) chances to comment on a couple more blogs and enter to win the fabulous Grand Prizes...

BLOG TOUR – Interview with the awesomely fun and funny, Eileen Cook at  Stop by and find out how I would have described myself as a teen!

BLOG TOUR – A very special Editor Interview with Anica Mrose Rissi from Simon Pulse at This is my fabulous editor who edited Losing Faith! Drop by to find out what drew her to Losing Faith, as well as some of Anica's grammar and writing pet peeves!

Thanks again, everyone, for making this party so much fun! I had a blast! Did you?
