Oh and I got to be a guest blogger at authorslatino.com for author Jo Ann Hernandez!. Check out my post!

Also storycasting.com is a lot of fun to play with! It's a website where you pick a book and then select various celebrities to play various characters in the book. A Wish After Midnight is there as well as Flygirl by Sherri L. Smith and So Not the Drama by Paula Chase (I recommended Flygirl & SNTD, they are really good about finding the books/actors you request!). I highly encourage everyone to check out the site!

*Update on Black weblog Awards: I am not a finalist. I'll take down the image in the sidebar so as not to cause any conufsion. So that's why no one could vote, I didn't make it to the finals. No worries, there's always next year!
