A Book Birthday and CUPCAKES
She's one of the first authors I "met" on Twitter, and if anyone has ever translated the absolute gooey goodness and saucy sassiness of their own personality in 140 characters or less better than she - well, I just don't think anyone has.
ALSO? She taught me the words "teh awesomesauce" and for that I'll be forever grateful.
Today is the birthday of the second book in her Theatre Illuminata series. It all began with EYES LIKE STARS and today readers can (and should) get thee (thee-selves?) to bookstores to buy Act II, PERCHANCE TO DREAM. I'll be celebrating by reading on the beach and making a very special cupcake. Look for my review (and a pic of said cupcake) later this week. You can celebrate along with Lisa by participating in the very first #cupcakeathon - see details here.
Because Lisa is a tremendously good sport, she's agreed to a little contest here on the blog. If you don't know, Lisa has a bean in the pot. A fish in the pond. A cupcake in the oven.
THERE'S A BABY BOY IN THAT BELLAAAY!
So whichever blog follower/commenter provides the very best, most inventive, catchiest, cutest baby name in the comments will win an ARC of PERCHANCE TO DREAM along with a cupcake prize pack, consisting of a cupcake candle, bookmark, notepad, pencils and any other cupcake items I can uncover.
In the meantime, I'm off to find out what Bertie and the fairies - Peaseblossom, Moth, Cobweb and Mustardseed - have been up to for the past year.
I can bet it will have been yummy, yummy trouble.
Speaking of yummy? #TeamNATE
