Gossip and Giveaways!

Today is a super fun day! First, stop by Adventures in Children's Publishing. I'm really lucky to have a post on their blog for WOW Wednesday today. If you've missed my posts in the past about my journey to becoming published, this post tells all!

The next must stop is Jen at Unedited's blog. Confession: She's the first person to read my ARC. Don't worry, I am doing a giveway soon for another ARC! Jen will share with you her thoughts on my book (fingers crossed!) AND she's doing a give away of Gossip from the Girls' Room! And here's the super fun part. To enter,  you MUST spread some gossip. All the details are on Jen's blog so...what are you waiting for? Go, go, go!

Rose, we're beyond thrilled you're blogging for us today! What a ride. Thanks so much for sharing it with everyone :)

Jen said...

I of course am running over to Adventures in Children's Publishing to take a look at your grand appearance!

I look forward to all the entries for the spectacular Gossip Giveaway!!! I'm sure we'll snag a great amount of gossipy goodness!

Um, psssst!

Jen just ate a spider and she didn't even know! It crawled into her burger and she took a giant bite. Ew!

(I seem to have regressed about 20 years with my gossip! Oh well!)

aspiring_x said...

jen didn't wash her hands!

(i'm afraid years of trying to avoid gossip, has left me ill-prepared for this...)

Crystal Cook said...

Fun contest! Your book sounds awesome :)

Hey, did you hear that Jen tried to flirt her way out of a speeding ticket. . . with a woman cop?!?! And it worked!!

Jen said...

LOLOL Rose this was such a brilliant idea!!! Hehe, I'm so proud of us!!!

Talli - I have a huge fear of spiders!! I'm currently freaked out *stays away from burgers*

aspiring x - Loved it!! (Though I do, just incase anyone is curious!)

Crystal - Wow... I'm talented! Who would have thought!

I've already been to Jen's, and ACP is my next stop. Can't wait to read your guest post.

Teenage Bride said...

Rose... you go girl!!!

I am heading over to do my morning visit with Jen right now!!

Messy mommy said...

Well, let's see, I'm already following both of you ... have no idea how to sidebar ... will try to tweet on both my sites and blogs (jennywidner.blogspot.com jennyrosewriter.blogspot.com)

Did you hear that Jen asked Rose to tell Bobby that Jen has a crush on him? But Rose has a secret crush on Bobby so instead Rose told Bobby that Jen picks her nose and doesn't wash her hands ;)

Teenage Bride said...

Rose!!! Me again I just wanted to know if you heard that Jen was thinking of running away to Canada and living in a remote cabin with fifty two cats and NO INTERNET access!!!!! Can you believe that!!!!!!

Messy mommy said...

I've blogged

I've tweeted and I think I'm following you everywhere I can (hehehe) :P

Theresa Milstein said...

Rose, don't tell anyone. Promise? Okay, good. I heard that Jen is totally crushing on Justin Bieber. In fact, she plans to cut and style her hair just like his, and then send him a picture to show her devotion.

Pam Torres said...

Hi Rose,

I really hate to be the one to have to tell you this but Jen is not at all clear about what's real and what's not. Yesterday, she asked the barista to drop an "eye of knut" into her latte. Then when we got cut off by a soccer mom van on the way home she performed an "Imobulus" charm on the driver. When I questioned her she told me I better be quiet or she would spell me right out of the car. I'm really worried.

OK, I think Jen is deleting my comments. She is so jealous that I am your BBB "Best Blogger Buddy". Am I right?

Well, don't tell her but I put a link to your contest on my blog.

Candyland said...

Jen ate too much sparkle dust today and threw up a fairy.

Jen said...

Messy Mommy - Thanks for the heads up! Rose I can't believe you'd do that!!! I really liked Bobby! Now I don't stand a chance!

Teenage Bride - What's wrong with having 52 cats?

Theresa - If I didn't like you so much I would disqualify you for this. I suppose Rose should be super happy since you told one hell of a rumor... Man oh Man... don't know how I feel about this... Bieb's and I, we aren't tight.

Pam - You're not supposed to tell my secret!!! Now I'm going to have to perform a "Obliviate" charm, and I didn't want to have to do that! I also thought we were BBB's!!!!

Rose, maybe you and I should just be BBB's and teach Pam a lesson!

Candyland - That was embarassing enough the first time! I didn't think I was going to have to relive it!!! Thanks a lot.

Lisa Potts said...

I've already stopped by Jen's site and now I'm a follower of yours also.

The book looks fantastic, but I have to tell you that I heard from a friend of a friend of a cousin of mine who lives in the general vicinity of Jen's house that she's been kissing the TV screen again during Criminal Minds. Time for an intervention?

Janet Johnson said...

Love the contest! Would double love the ARC.

Jen keeps a cardboard cutout of Kevin Costner as Robin Hood from back in the day. When she needs a lift, she sneaks into her closet, grabs his cardboard hand, and shares all her woes. For the record, Robin Hood is a great listener . . . or so Jen tells me.

Jennie Bailey said...

I love your blog! And I can hardly wait to read your book. Fingers crossed I win the ARC. But I'm confused because when I was over a Jen's house for her Labor Day BBQ (what do you mean, she didn't invite you???), I saw Gossip from the Girls' Room and she had crossed out YOUR name and written hers over it. So I think she's trying to pass your book off as hers, which is actually a compliment. I mean, it MUST be fantastic if she's wants others to think that she wrote it!

Off to Adventures in Children's Publishing!

Jen said...

Lisa - You witch! I can't believe you shared my dirty secret!!! No one was supposed to know how much I've been crushing on Dr. Reed *closes mouth* I said to much.

Janet - For the record, since the word is out... he's an excellent listener. Afterall anyone dressed up as Robin Hood would have to be, right?

Jennie - I don't know what you're talking about! I never did that *hides Gossip from the Girl's Room*

Karen Lange said...

Congrats, Rose! :) Will hop over to WOW Wednesday. Thanks!

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

Congrats, Rose. I'll hop over and look.

Oh, and for the gossip part...I'd never tell her this cause she knows she's a star, but Jen told me I'd already won your book. :)

Lenny Lee! said...

gosh miss rose i hate to be the one to be a big gossiper but i gotta tell you miss jens been sayin you stole her idea for that gossipy girls room book. she said it was her idea first cause she was always in the girls room smoking puttin on make up and gossiping when she was sposed to be in class. she said you were a nerd and didnt ever spend time in the girls room so you dont now anything about girls gossip. she said just as soon as you get a million dollars for selling that book she gonna sue you and take all your money. yikes!
...laughs and smiles from lenny

Lynda Young said...

Psst Jen puts fairy dust in her brownies and doesn't share!

Amie B said...

psstt....i have the secret. my husband is really ben affleck incognito. but if i told you that i'd have to kill you....

Melissa said...

Hey Rose, guess what? Jen totally lied to all of us. She actually has magical abilities and thats why she has so many different story ideas that are so well-thought out and intriguing. She uses her powers to take them from other writers before they even realize their new idea. Thats sooo awful right?

FoxFamily said...

Rose, I just met you today, but I've known Jen forever! She was telling me that you eat chocolate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and take all your kid's cereal and make them eat the healthy stuff... you're so mean!

Theresa Milstein said...

Jen, sorry, but you didn't say it couldn't be a vicious rumor! ; )

Vicki Rocho said...

OMG, I just heard the craziest thing about Jen. Promise you won't say a WORD to anyone?

I heard that she's the one who broke into the school and wrote all those cuss words on the board last week. She was tryin to impress Billy (who she is totally in love with, she told me so herself, but you didn't hear it from me). Anyway Billy called her a goody two shoes. But when he found out it was her he wouldn't talk to her anymore so now she's trying to tell everyone that YOU were the one who did it.

Serena said...

this sounds like fun, but i need to get snooping rose so i shal return with some inside gossip for you!
