Two Days to Launch, Prizes to Win, and an Awesome Gift Idea

Okay, so first of all, the book launch for Mormon Mishaps and Mischief is in two days. Two days, people! This is crazy cool, and before you ask, yes, I'm totally excited. This will be my very first book signing in which I'm actually on the author side of the table. Yahoo! And I'm lucky because if no one shows up, at least I'll have my co-author Cindy to talk to. No hours spent twiddling our thumbs and feeling stupid for us. No-sirree. (But please, show up. Please, please, please...okay, so I told myself I wouldn't beg. Enough of that!)

Now, lest you have forgotten in all my many posts, you are all invited to this launch. And I'll just add that Cindy and I are in the process of putting together the prizes and gift baskets, and this is going to be one launch you don't want to miss. But...if you can't make it, check out my sidebar for one of our other December signings. We're planning to have a few giveaways at those as well.

We'd love to meet you!

Now, moving on to other cool news:

I'm told there are several blogs giving away copies of Missing by Ronda Gibb Hinrichsen. In case you didn't read my review the other day, scroll to the blog below this one or click here. This is a must read!  Click here, here, or here and enter to win.

Wow, Wow, Wow! Thanks for featuring my book here. And good luck on your book launch. It sounds great. Wish I could be there, but, alas, I can't. Have a wonderful time.

Thanks everyone! Both Missing and The Family Record Keeper are great ideas--for different reasons, obviously. But don't you think the titles go together well?
