Random News & Shorts Part Two

I'm planning on running a writing contest this weekend, so sharpen your pencils and get ready. It's party week at Casa King (we've got a birthday, an anniversary and St. Patricks, which we're very enthusiastic about in an old country way) and I feel like tossing out some cool prizes. Yes. Plural. Prizes. Come back tomorrow for that. Today, I just need to toss out random news and shouts. Also, I found this article yesterday and want to share it with you. It was kinda hard to ignore the title. NINE OUT OF 10 GIRLS SEXUALLY HARASSED. You need to read this. News: In case you live in in the Phoenix area or you're coming to the Tucson Festival of Books, here's where I'll be and when. Changing Hands, Tempe, AZ - March 12th 4:30pm-6pm The Tucson Festival of Books Saturday, March 14th Reading at Teen Authors Lounge 10:30-11:15am Author Panel - 2:30pm-3:30pm - Dorks, Nerds and Geeks: How daily mortification, ridicule and unpopularity as a teen can turn you into a superstar YA author. Lisa McMann, Robin Brande & A.S. King. Book signing until 4:30. (Lisa McMann reading follows the signing, in teen author lounge.) Barnes & Noble, Chandler Mall, Chandler, AZ Mar 15th 2-4pm Contests: Youve got one more week to enter the HUGE GIVEAWAY at Reviewer X. If you've bought D100D, you really should think about entering. Who doesn't want $300 worth of books? Random D100D/A.S. King Notes: Here's a post, including video, of my reading at the awesome Aaron's Books in Lititz last weekend. If you haven't already done so, you are going to totally want to find your way over to Liviania's blog, In Bed With Books, next week, because she's celebrating birthdays....and since next week is my birthday, I wrote a fitting blog, and there are very interesting (and/or embarrassing) pictures. But all month, she's doing some really great guest blogs, so you should go over right now to read them. A note to my Dublin, Ireland peeps--Hughes & Hughes in the Stephen's Green Shopping Centre is stocking D100D! Shout Outs: Thanks for the cool review over at Sarah's Random Musings. A groovy review over at {Insert Book Title Here} starts by saying, "I have to say that The Dust of 100 Dogs may just be my favorite novel to date." This made my day. I mean, obviously, right? And to end, another baby step on the A.S. King Omnibus Project. This group of shorts is more adult-themed. Nothing too awful or that different from my other stories, but not particularly written for teenagers. Then again, neither is Steinbeck, so for the sake of the project, I'm listing them. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Yay plural prizes! And St. Patty's day! Unfortunately, no one around here gets as excited as I do for this particular holiday. But that's okay. I can dress all in green and attempt an Irish accent all on my own ;)
