the first FORTUNE FRIDAY, with a kick-ass prize!

On Fridays, probably every other Friday, I plan to have a fortune-writing contest. We did one last night at my book signing, and it was great.

The winners, in order:

GRAND PRIZE--Chelsea Kocina--"Good friends share more than shoes."

2nd PRIZE--Jackie Bromeland--"You WILL obtain that helicopter's license."

3RD PRIZE--Kelly Berkey--"It's never too late to find your inner naughty."

The choices were made by the esteemed members of my writing group, and fine choices they were. Each winner receives a "cookie champion!" medal, and Chelsea receives a medal AND a box of fortune cookies. Lucky girls!

BUT . . . the prizes get better on the blog! If you win the fortune-writing contest here, you receive a signed copy of ASH, by Malinda Lo. It's the hottest YA to come out this fall! If you like new twists on old stories, if you like GLBT YA, if you like lyrical writing, you're in for a treat. Entries close next Friday, Sept 25, at midnight.

Post your fortunes in the comments--and have a lucky day! (You knew that was coming, didn't you?)


  1. Er, I thought I posted a comment? Not sure... maybe they are screened. Trying again.

    "When threatened by zombies, fight with chainsaw, run without."

    "Beware of tiny dogs with big bladders."

    "The last nut you eat always tastes the worst."

  2. Also.... I just finished THE SKY ALWAYS HEARS ME, and here is my review:

  3. There is only one thing that you cannot live without.

  4. You will do today what others wont so that tomorrow you can do what they can't.
