Myra Rocks Day! (Author Appreciation Blog Tour)



Basically, what today comes down to is this:

Myra McEntire is fabulous.

And our mutual friend, MG Buehrlen, came up with this idea to surprise Myra with a day allllll for her!


First, Myra, a note for you.

You might not remember this, but you were one of the first people who tweeted to me back in the day when I was still figuring out this whole twitter/blogging/being a writer thing. And you were so nice. Honestly, you're one of the reasons I stopped being so nervous about reaching out to other writers--and because of that? I found the writing friends and CPs that I have today. Thank you, Myra. Sincerely. <3

PS. It's just a little thing, but still. Sometimes I've seen you tweet "rabbit, rabbit," on the first of the month. Growing up, it was a tradition in my household for those to be the first words out of our mouths each month for luck--and I still do it today. It's just a little thing, but still. It makes you even cooler in my book. :)

PPS. I can't wait to see you in October.

And, you guys, in case you needed more proof that Myra's the awesome:

The girl wrote and gave us Kaleb. Kaleb, ya'llKaleb<3 We first met him in Hourglass, book one of awesome--and then we get even more of him (so, so much more *happy dances*) in Timepiece, book two of awesome. Don't worry. If you haven't had the chance to read Timepiece ahead of schedule, it comes out June 12th. Trust me, the book is worth the wait.

(You can find/preorder Myra's books at AmazonBooks a MillionIndieBound, and Barnes and Noble!)

OH. And? I give you this. In which Myra connects writing and microwaving peeps. It really needs no other explanation, and you. are. welcome.


So happy Myra Day! Make sure to tell her how super she is either on twitter (@myramcentire with the hashtag #authorlove) or on her blog myramcentire.blogspot.com!

Check out everyone else celebrating Myra Day!
