Yes, you read that right! Today is the big day! On this day, many a year ago, back when things like cell phones and LCDs screens were a geeks wild super-dream, I showed up! And then proceeded to cause havoc and flaunt Mexican food joints whereever I went.
Speaking of, I had nachos yesterday. And they were delicious.
I'm getting off track. Okay, so, you know how with every birthday we get to make a wish and blow out some candles, right? No, I don't want your candles. No, I don't want you to start singing Rihanna's Birthday Cake. And yes, if you sing It's my party and I'll cry if I want to, I may have to hit you with a tranq dart because that song drives me INSANE.
Again, getting off track.
We all want to make our special day, well, special. And I'm no different, for the most part. See that pretty little picture on the top left of the screen? You know, the one that says Illumine's Wish?
Want to make my birthday the best ever?
You heard me. Share it. Post it on Facebook (with a link back!), tell your friends to Google it, lather your Twitter in it, battleram your Tumblr, talk about it on Goodreads, just let it be heard. I can say all day that I'd like you all to share my book and get Illumine on a bestseller list, but honestly? I know that's a difficult feat for someone so small. Not impossible, but difficult. And if I spend my whole birthday checking Amazon compulsively for sales ranks to see if I hit #1 in a category, well, I'll have wasted one heck of a day.
But let me tell you. Seeing that icon of my event, the one that over a dozen other bloggers linked arms with me to do, is probably the best gift a girl like me could ever ask of her friends. Yes, I said friends. I don't really consider people who follow my blog 'followers'. Friends is nicer, because you went out of your way to keep me on your radar a-la Britney Spears song, so friends is definitely cooler.
So one more time, this is what I think you should all do if you want to get a cheesy, super-grinny smile on my face all day.
One- Share that photo. Everywhere. Temporary tattoos might be on the extreme side, but if you do that, I definitely want pictures.
Two- Don't forget to enter in the giveaways going on all over the place! Jessica via Hopelessly Devoted Bibliophile has a beautiful specially made pendant of Illumine, among the other delicious goodies, up for grabs!
Three- Post in the comments if you want to say Happy Birthday! Birthday wishes, especially funny ones, always make me smile.
And don't forget, there's still a few days left to enter to win one of TEN ARCs of OBUMBRATE! I wouldn't miss out on this one if I were you. Not to puff my Coco Puffs, but I have a good feeling book two is really going to overshadow book one by miles.
