BABY NEWS! And Bad News...

First off... let me show off the newest little member of the James Gang!


BABY NUMBER 7!!! Isn't she sooo cute? We're in love already!
And for those of you who voted RED hair--you were wrong


And for those of you who voted BLONDE--you were wrong too

Only the few people who voted for BROWN actually won!!!

Crazy huh? We did it! We actually broke the mold!

We have our very first burnette!

(These pictures will only be up for a short time... so enjoy the newbie now.)





























Now onto the bad news...

Due to a massive printing glitch... Northanger Alibi isn't going to be available until mid-June. And not on store shelves until early July! Which means I'm having a book-free launch party! lol! Since I've already sent out the flyers and personal invites, I now will just have one rockin party, that won't include any books!

However, we have been able to find two extremely rare ARC's to giveaway with the other prizes... and I won't be alone. Cleon Skousen's son will be signing for his late father's book as well. (Except he has his books!)

This will definitely be a memorial launch party right? Lol! The launch without the books...! Hey, I've always liked to do things my own way! lol!

For those of you who'd like to come and party with me--I'll be reading my favorite chapter, there will be FOOD, and of course I'll be giving away some AWESOME prizes!!! AND We'll still be doing our Jane/Twilight costume contest--as this is a Twilight Gala!

Also, don't forget I'm having the South Valley Women's Sanctuary drive as well--they've asked for makeup.

Nearly broke my heart when I asked, "why makeup?" and was told... "because when these battered women come here, with nothing, running for their lives... all they want to know when they look in the mirror is that they really are beautiful."

So please, please, please... if you're coming. Don't forget to bring some makeup for the women's shelter. (especially: mascara, eyeshadow, blush, eyeliner, lipstick/gloss) If I can't have my books, at least I'll know I'll be able to help someone...

I can't wait to see you!

  2. She is a doll, Jenni. They all are! Congrats again.

    Aw, it's disappointing, I'm sure. But you've got the right outlook! You can make it great, anyway. And it's a tired old cliche, but so true: Everything happens for a reason.

    Take care!

  3. Congratulations! Adorable baby - so glad everything came out okay. Very disappointing about your books. I don't think I'd take it as well as you. Good luck with everything.

  9. BEAUTIFUL BABY!!! I am sure you are bummed about the book but maybe you just need more time to recover from giving birth!! It will all be great!

  10. Congratulations!!!

    But, I'm still betting on a blonde. Give her a few months and I'm guessing those little brown locks will turn golden. That's what happened to my kids.

    As for the book- more time for you and your baby to chill. Your book will still get all the attention it needs when it's ready.

    Take care!!!
