In the last contest for Jolene's brilliant Go Ask Ogre, I asked you to name your favorite album of 2007. And I wound up with a big shopping list for iTunes. Thank you! I think my favorite is Cease to Begin by Band of Horses, which just came out in October. I really love it, but I promise to change my myspace profile song soon to give other musical types some play.In any case, without further ado, let's get to the winner of last week's contest. Out of 52 entries, our random number generator has chosen.... Krissy the Jonas Brothers fan! Krissy, email me your address and I'll get your prize to you! Now, this week, the contest is a little different. You may have noticed that I have a newsletter sign up box on my website these days (it's the little purple one on the left that says, "I want updates from Melissa!"). Your mission is to, well, sign up for my newsletter. I promise it'll come out like 5 times a year--to tell you when a book is on sale or if there's a party/signing near you. So sign up! Out of everyone who signs up between now and next Wednesday, January 30th, I'll chose five winners at random to win a copy of Violet on the Runway (or Violet by Design if you already have Violet on the Runway), PLUS a Lancome Juicy Tube. Sound good? Sign up now so it won't be just me and my boyfriend on the newsletter list. That is incredibly lame. Oh, and I'd love it if you guys would post comments of other contests you know about this week (especially from other authors). I'll post some if I see them, too! Let's enter to win like crazy!
