Good News Friday (TLA & Giveaway Info)



Over the break I neglected my Good News Friday posts. This is just a time for me to share good news, and more importantly, here yours. Brag about your kids, your job, or anything else good that is going on your life. I would love to hear it. 

I have BIG news this week. Well, big for me! I was asked to be a co-chair for the Local Arrangements Author Area subcommittee for TLA's (Texas Library Association) Annual Conference! In a nutshell: I am helping with all of the aspects of the author signing area this year. I will help recruit and organize volunteers for the signing area and make sure the authors are all in the right place at the right time. I am over the moon! I can't wait to find out all of the authors that will be attending this year. The signing goes out mid February, but hopefully I will have a little more information sooner. I know of a few confirmed authors and you can see my post about it here. Hanging out all day with people I admire is going to be great! 

I have already had several awesome friends already say they would volunteer for the event. If you would like to volunteer as well...let me know! Look for the links below for info about the conference and volunteer info. You DO NOT need to be a TLA member to go to the conference OR to volunteer. You can buy an exhibitor pass to attend. Look for link below for more info. 

In other news, I scored some SIGNED swag from Richelle Mead at my local grocery store, HEB. That's right ...the grocery store. Richelle confirmed to a friend and blogger Stephanie that they were indeed authentic. I will definitely share the love with my followers. Be looking for the items next week! 

So, what is your good news? I would love to hear anything you have to share.

  3. I'm thinking about trying to get time off for this ... It would be inconvenient, but I really want to go ... and it's after TAKS so no one can really get onto me, either.
