Alright, I feel slightly guilty posting this given my highly convincing if not entirely sincere list of the top five reasons writers should stop reading...but...there's a Goodreads giveaway of advance copies of Afterparty! I'm excited, and so happy that Simon Pulse is doing this. And you should definitely get over there and sign up immediately, if only so you can win and go, "Meh, no wonder she's dispensing all this truly rank writing advice."
Do pop onto Goodreads, put Afterparty on your to-read list, and sign on for the giveaway!
Oh, right, here's the link: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15751652-afterparty
Also, international (as in non-U.S., she said U.S.-centrically) readers, apologies, this is a US only giveaway. I promise to do an international giveaway as soon as the book is out.
