Can you believe summer is just about over?
Next week my oldest officially starts preschool. We went out last night to get him his school supplies and some new clothes. I have to admit: I was getting teary eyed. As excited as I am for him to start school (along with letting me have that small break three days a week from at least one kiddo) I hate the idea of him growing up. Such a mommy moment.
What did he tell me he the most excited about?
"I get to learn to write big books!"
Yes... he is my son.
As for the other kiddo. My little two-year-old just showed me that not only does he know all his letters... but he also knows the sounds each letter makes. Way to make your Mommy proud little one!
Have I mentioned what we read a little of each night before we go to bed? Harry Potter.
That's right. And they love it.
I am raising my own home of book fanatics.
Now, as for WIP updates. Ideas are starting to flow for LJ. Boy am I excited! I cannot wait to finally start plucky out the words of that novel! I am also dying to work more on ITB. But with this photo backlog the way it is, who knows when I will find time open that file again before NaNoWriMo hits! Being busy is... good. Right?
Did I mention I candid shot a wedding this last weekend? On the rooftop... of a library? Oh my, it was gorgeous. Sadly I didn't get time to explore the inside of the library. But the couple was just so dang gorgeous that I didn't mind. What a day!

How's about some Giveaway updates?
Well, for one: Friday is my birthday. The big 2-6. (Woohoo!) To celebrate, I am hosting a three day FREE Kindle Promo weekend! That means that for all of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday you can snag a Kindle copy of Prison Nation... for free! Happy Birthday to Me! Make sure to spread the word!
Now, for two: Starting September 2nd, over on Goodreads I will open a giveaway for one SIGNED copy of Prison Nation. If you are state-side and would love the chance to get a paperback copy of my novel, all signed and pretty, make sure to enter that one! It will be open until December 1st. The one year anniversary of Prison Nation being published! Aw...
And, for three: I know, three? Well, I am part of the Back to the Books Blog Hop. Make sure to check my blog on September 1st for what I chose to give away!
I must really like you guys or something.
And I have yet to dive into the swag I have collected. Oh man...
That is about it for this week's update. How is your week going? What did you write? Do share!
