An Award, some Ebook Deals, and a Winner

Gini says:
Congratulations, your blog has been nominated as a Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger Blog!

The award was created to honor those whose blogs who exemplify the qualities Katherine “Kitty” Katt has -- those who always stay cutting edge, who always find the fun, the funny, and the cool, and who are always one step ahead of the competition.

The “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger Award” is only given to the amazingly awesome, so get down with your bad self, you’re deemed worthy to run with the A-C’s! And you’re also one step closer to being in the running for some cool prizes. (Contest is international.)

Now you get to spread the awesome by nominating other bloggers who are also harder, better, faster and stronger than the average blog bear. Not everyone’s as cool as you, so choose carefully!
Anyone who's known me for any amount of time knows what a huge Gini Koch fan I am - her Alien series is FABulous!  All you need to say is #Martini in the twitterverse and you get a universal round of *sigh*.  If you're not in the know about #Martini, you should be - this series rocks.  And I gotta be honest - I WANT THAT BAG!!!

I was nominated by Gini herself!  So what awesome blogs am I nominating for the Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger Award?  How 'bout these specimens of awesomeness:

Congratulations ladies!  Your blogs rock!  Here's what you need to do to be in the run for some pretty impressive prizes:

Your mission details:
Slap the graphic on your blog.
Give link props to the person who gave you the award (keep the hard, best, fast and strong on your side!).
Spread the awesome and nominate five (5) other bloggers who you think exemplify what it means to be cool, fun and cutting edge.
Let the recipients know they’ve won this honor on their blogs.
Last but not least, shoot Gini Koch an email at and let her know you’re the best of the best of the best, sir! (put “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” in the subject line!) by sharing that you’ve been nominated and telling her which other bloggers you nominated, and she’ll enter you into the “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” Contest.

Aeicha @ Word Spelunking 

Aeicha said: This is a great review. I'm intrigued by your feelings of being unbalanced and off center after reading this book, which must be incredibly powerful or emotional to provoke such feelings in a reader. I really like the idea of a dark, uneasy read. Thanks for the giveaway!

(Aeicha has been contacted)

I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!
