Ding ding ding! We have a winner!

Congratulations to Suzanne R. from Hillsboro, Oregon who won the Big Huge Sweepstakes! She and her hubby James will be coming to Los Angeles this weekend and enduring painful chitchat with one crazy cat lady and then going to the signing in Mission Viejo! My Grandma will be there and my Aunt Pam, too, so it's like saying hey to the family.

If you would also like to meet a crazy cat lady and relations and ask me your burning questions such as "Why was La Soba not featured on the cover of the book?" feel free to stop by ...

Saturday, January 19th, 2008 BORDERS -- 1:00 PM (Reading & signing) at 25222 El Paseo in Mission Viejo, CA 92691 (Phone: 949.367.0005) and click here for a map -->

Also, I hope the weather improves for our winner because this morning the express bus was navigating through fog soup all the way to downtown:



We're also supposed to have sixty-mile-per-hour winds this afternoon. I hope my bangs get that windblown sexy look and not the "Oh wow, she's like the twin of that Little Rascals dude..." look. It could go either way.

Thank you to everyone who entered the sweepstakes. As you may recall, this sweepstakes was run by an outside company who was kind enough to sponsor it all, do the fulfillment and alert the winners! If you won a prize it should be arriving to you soon. Luckily this time around it is not me responsible for getting anything in the mail, because we know how well that usually turns out. Ahem. I do know at least two of the people who were notified for other prizes have not responded back yet so if you entered to win, check your email! Hey, maybe I should take my own advice... I am only 62 weeks behind on email. This will be the year I get it together, I promise I promise all over again. Sigh.

And thank you to my awesome contest winner of Oregon for agreeing to meet with me, a potentially sweaty nervous wreck who is not great at meeting strangers but excited to say hey with you all the same! I plan to rub your head in hopes that some of your winner's luck mojo will be contagious... just FYI ....
