Good Times and Good News

Our very good friend, Barbara Vey of Publishers Weekly, is celebrating the second anniversary of her successful blog, Beyond Her Book. She's having a party to end all parties, and today is "publishers/agents/publicist/editors/bloggers/librarians Day."

We are bloggers so today the Playfriends are Bartending with Barbara. Click the link above, hop on over to Barbara's blog and mosey on up to the bar for one of Problem Child's famous chocolate martinis. We're also offering a nifty bar-related prize.



And in the Good News Department, I found out Monday that I was selected as one of eleven finalists in the Special Edition Online Pitch Challenge. I sent in a one-page synopsis last week and I'll be pitching my book to Special Edition editor Susan Litman in the eHarlequin chatroom on Thursday around noon.

I'm thrilled to pieces, shocked beyond belief and have moments of sheer panic. Keep me in your thoughts tomorrow. Send good vibes my way cause I'm sure gonna need them.

Do you have any good news to share? Share it here and then join us at Barbara's party.

Hooray! I knew you could do it! Congratulations and all that stuff. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you today and throw in a few prayers too.

Word verification -- caresses -- must mean good luck for you today.

Good luck with the pitch! I know you'll nail it. The bartenders you sent over are amazing and I haven't been able to get near the bar yet. Great idea for the limo ride for those who may party too hearty. Thanks for all the wonderful stuff you sent over. See you all there!

Yay Marilyn! We're proud of you.

I will make chocolate martinis for Barbara's party, but I will not drink them. "I'm dieting," she says firmly, determined to actually lose weight this time.

Plus I have an appointment with my trainer at noon, and I think she'll be able to tell if I've been drinking chocolate...

All I can say is rum and diet coke - 2 points. Or a bloody mary, two points, plus a veggie serving! :)

Congrats, Marilyn. Your turn at last to stress over a pitch! Ha. :)
