Harry Potter Mania

Of course, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows releases tonight at midnight. I ordered mine off Amazon, and am hoping it makes it to my house by tomorrow so I can spend the weekend reading.. spoiler-free!
Who’s planning on going to a midnight party release? Any die-hard fans out there? … Who use their kid as an excuse to go? 🙂

I’m picking it up at midnight tonight!
Mail order… It better be here tomorrow.
I’ll pick it up sometime this weekend.
Whenever I get around to it.
Harry who?
I still need to read the previous books.

M.D. Benoit Interview

Besides having the privilege to preview M.D. Benoit’s new book Synergy and interview her today, it happens to be a very special day… Happy Birthday, M.D.! Hope you have a great one!

Three people will defy these laws to save the life of eleven-year-old Zelimir, who will die a slow, painful death from a horrifying genetic disease. Zelimir’s father hires Torver Lockwood and Demetria Greyson to find a cure for his son. Both have a personal stake in this illegal research.
