January Website Updates

Happy New Year, Honorary Playfriends! We hope you had a fantastic holiday and that you're entering the new year (and new decade!) with a fresh, rested spirit.

The Playfriends are entering the new year with a fresh, new look - on the website at least! Smarty Pants has been very busy, and the Playground boasts a fresh coat of paint and a good reorganizing. It certainly looks spiffy, but it's also a bit more user-friendly these days. All those fab articles and interviews in the Archives have been indexed and it should be easier to find what you're looking for now. You'll find lots of new photos and other surprises.

Along with our spiffy new look, we have lots of great updates, too!

First off, we welcome SB Sarah of the SMART BITCHES, TRASHY BOOKS blog to the Sandbox. You know, she's really nice, not bitchy at all! : http://www.writingplayground.com/sandbox.html

The end of 2009 means it's time to start thinking about taxes. Diane O'Brien Kelly is back this month with an article about what's *not* deductable on your taxes. : http://www.writingplayground.com/school.html#tax3

In School, you'll find that January's Book of the Month selection (MAGNATE'SMISTRESS... ACCIDENTALLY PREGNANT!) is by someone we all know and who is currently blushing at Angel's rave review:

The start of the new year also means that the contests are back! I'm running the Jan-Feb "Beach Break" contest to celebrate the release of my February book. Be sure to enter!http://www.writingplayground.com/contest.html

The blog is active, as usual. We'll kick off the new year next with our Theme Week (any week with a MOANday and a Free Book Friday is an awesome week, right?). The week after that (1/11-1/15), we'll be celebrating our new look with a really great contest. Check the blog for details. Guest blogger Donna Alward returns on 1/11, and more guest bloggers will be added to the sidebar as we confirm the details.

2010 promises to be a great year! Ours is already off to a great start because we get to share all of this fun stuff with our Honorary Playfriends. We resolve to bring you the best interviews and bloggers and contests we can throughout the year because y'all make our Playground a great place to be.

Here's to great friends, great books, good times, and hunky cover models!
