Six months from today Nightshade hits bookshelves!! So in a way it's Nightshade's -6th months birthday! No matter how I look at it, the six month countdown feels like a milestone. I can't wait 'til October!
Today, however, is another, actual birthday. April 19 is my mom's birthday!
Happy Birthday, Mom!!!
I have a wonderful mom to whom I am very close. I am greatly indebted to my mom for instilling of a love of literature in me. I have innumerable happy memories of being read to when I was small. My favorite read aloud books that my mom read to me and my brother are The Hobbit, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Dark is Rising series.
My mom is a giver. She's more of a giver than anyone else I know, which makes her perfect for her profession. She's a music teacher. She directs the high school choirs in Ashland, including show choir. Go Glee!
So my love of music is a gift from my mom too. Thanks Mom!
To enter this contest all you have to do is send my mom (Mrs. Robertson) happy birthday wishes in the comments of this blog post.
If you want your name to be entered into the drawing TWICE - leave the happy birthday message and a brief note about why music is important to you :)
I'm taking entries until midnight! Tomorrow I'll draw a random name for the winner of a signed Nightshade ARC!
