Welcome to November!
It's a special month on the Playground because November is our birthday month! Can you believe we're four years old? We're so appreciative to everyone who's making this journey with us (and making it so much fun)! To celebrate, we'll be hosting a blog party on Friday, November 13th and we hope to see you there. As always, there are presents for our Honorary Playfriends, so be sure to come by for a chance to win.
But if that's not enough, we do have other things to keep you occupied this month.
Samhain author Vivi Andrews joins us in the Sandbox to talk about paranormals and staying warm in the winter: www.writingplayground.com/sandbox.html
As we get closer to the end of 2009, Diane O'Brien Kelly is back with another tax tips article - this time about all that glamorous travel - in School: www.writingplayground.com/school.html#tax2
Speaking of travel, we recommend Nicola Marsh's TRIP WITH THE TYCOON as well. Just don't read while hungry. : www.writingplayground.com/school.html#tycoon
In addition to our birthday party, we have some great guest bloggers lined up for November. Historical author Annie Burrows visits on 11/3; Romance author Donna Alward takes over on 11/11; Modern Heat author Heidi Rice comes back again on 11/16, and our chapter-sister Debra Webb joins us on 11/30 for the start of Guest Blogger Week.
Angel will be off guest blogging on the Ruby-Slippered Sisterhood on 11/23(www.rubyslipperedsisterhood.com) and the Problem Child will be at Tote Bags and Blogs on 11/17 (http://authorsoundrelations.blogspot.com/). We hope you'll come by and say hi there as well.
We also have to announce our winners of the Not So Scary Halloween Contest! Grand prize goes to Chris Jones of Texas and the runner up prize goes to Laura McIntyre of Oregon. Congratulations! (And as a bonus, the prizes have already been shipped - Smarty Pants is ahead of the game for once!)
We hope you enjoy the month of November on the Playground as much as we will.
