Click this link.
This link will lead you to a magical place that will change your life.
Or, if it doesn't change your life, if you buy a copy of this book, it will go to an amazing charity, the Bulembu Project.
This will lead you to it, so click on it, and read about it, because it is so worth it.
I'm writing two articles for it, and so are every other person working on this project.
They are all fantastic writers, and awesome people, so go check them out.  Here they all are:

I kind of just copied the blog.  But if you want to go see the site, click my first link.  Seriously.  Click it.  Or I will send legions of my flying monkeys to get you.  And I do have legions.  I keep them in my pockets.  I have lots of pockets.
So go buy a copy of this book!  Well, er, it isn't quite out yet, so just go check out the website and get some views on the site.
I will be eternally grateful.
Now I have to go write my articles, and do a history project, and do my NaNoWriMo, which is slowly turning into a NaNoWriWhenEverIHaveTimeToWriteANovel.  But it will get done.  Mark my words.
So, go check out the site.  Seriously.
Okay, I'm done with the shameless plugging.  Go check it out!!!!  Okay, now I'm done.
Love and kisses all,
(Oh, and if you didn't know, I'm Jennelle Barosin.  I know that I've mentioned my name before, but better safe than sorry.)


  1. This is so cool. And you're doing NaNoWriMo, which is something I gave up on last year and didn't think about all this year until Nov. 2nd, when I decided, "I'm already a day behind... that's so much catching up to do."

    Thus, nothing.

  2. Good luck with NaNo!!
    I'm doing it too. I'm dying a little bit, but nbd.

  3. *High-five*

    Let's hope this thing takes off, yo. I've just plugged it on my blog as well.
