Blue Steel, baby!

*Don't forget to enter for your chance to win a copy of Not My Type over at the iCandy Handmade Blog


I'm so not a picture girl. As in I just am not awesome in the wielding of cameras, large, small, or cell phone-esque. 


But I think pictures are fun to look at it. Unless my sister is making me try to put dates to family photos of uncertain origin. Then I don't like it. But besides that I do.


Oh, wait. No, I don't like it too much if I see a BUNCH of pictures of someone's kids I don't know. A little bit is okay, but not so much A LOT. 


But besides that I like pictures.


Anyway, here's two that made me happy this week. This first one I stumbled across on the LDS Storymakers website in the conference highlights section. Becca, the cute lady I'm hugging, is incredibly photogenic. She looks great in every single shot. This one made me laugh because I was attempting to do a Zoolander joke picture and it came out like I'm claiming Becca for my girlfriend. But I live in California and that's against the law still.

Then  there's the other super fun picture I got today from my sister. Since I rarely get to see my books on shelves in the wild, she's been keeping an eye out at Seagull and DB for Not My Type to show up. And it has! Check out the very good company I'm keeping: 

That's me right underneath the awesome Josi Kilpack and next to the highly entertaining Sarah Eden. Hooray!


You guys are all coming to our book launch party, right? On Sept. 22 at the Murray Barnes and Noble? It's going to be so AWESOME. Life is so good!

You do look like you're claiming Becca as your own. But she's smiling so big, she doesn't seem to mind. :)

Yay for books on store shelves!

Murray Barnes and Noble?! I may just have to make that! Do you know what time?

Also, the picture of your book on the shelf REALLY makes me want to get to a bookstore ASAP. I can't wait to get my hands on some new books.
