Wanna meet an author? Me too!!

A few weeks ago I won this fabulous book by Sydney Salter from Brodi Ashtons blog and really enjoyed reading it! I got it right before our Spring break trip and it kept me very entertained on our long driving trip and lazy vacation days.

When I got home I emailed Sydney(I hope she doesnt mind I refer to her like we're BFF's),who is totally sweet and very kind and she said she'd love to come to a book club gathering to visit and discuss and play. So guess what? I'm gonna throw a party! Let me know if you're interested in coming so I can make sure to keep you posted. It'll most likely be held in Salt Lake County, Utah. (Specific date and time tba--It'll be after May 17th though.)

I'm also gonna give away a copy of My Big Nose to a random commenter on this post. I'll announce the winner next Sunday May 10th sometime after 12noon. (I'll use the completely accurate method of my kids pulling a name out of a bowl.)

More about the book:
It’s the end of junior year, and summer is about to begin. The Summer of Passion, to be exact, when Jory Michaels plans to explore all the possibilities of the future--and, with any luck, score a boyfriend in the process. But Jory has a problem. A big problem. A curvy, honking, bumpy, problem in the form of her Super Schnozz, the one thing standing between Jory and happiness. And now, with the Summer of Passion stretched before her like an open road, she's determined for Super Schnozz to disappear. Jory takes a job delivering wedding cakes to save up for a nose job at the end of the summer; she even keeps a book filled with magazine cutouts of perfect noses to show the doctor. But nothing is ever easy for accident-prone Jory--and before she knows it, her Summer of Passion falls apart faster than the delivery van she crashes. In her hilarious and heartbreaking debut novel, Sydney Salter delivers a story about broadening your horizons, accepting yourself, and finding love right under your nose.

Debbie, sounds like a good book. We should have an SLTA "Must Read" thread to keep track of all the books we recommend to each other.

I'd love to join in on an author visit. I'd love to listen and learn. Please count me in. Oh, and I think you meant May 10, not April 10.
