Happy Cinco De Mayo & Signed Book Giveaway!
My son is in a Spanish Immersion track in his school and today I'm going to a local Mexican restaurant with about 100 elementary school kids who've all been assigned to only speak Spanish during the outing... did I mention I know about 5 words in Spanish?
Also, I'm SO excited about the conference this weekend. I'm in a master class with 3 other writers and the amazing Dan Wells...for THREE HOURS. There are only 5 people! That's a serious amount of quality time with one of my fave authors. I'm so excited to learn from the Master of Freaky-horror-dom (<--I was thinking of making him a button that says that. He can wear it next to his "I'm Not a Serial Killer" one. What do you think? ;)
What are you up to this weekend? Do you know any phrases in another language that you could teach me for my lunch date? It doesn't have to be Spanish, I'm open to anything at this point.
Tell you what, the best (not necessarily most helpful--be creative!) foreign language saying that is left in the comments gets a signed YA book from one of the awesome authors at the conference this weekend. :) Yay! Giveaways are FUN! Contest ends Sunday night, I'll announce the winner in Monday's blog post. Now teach me! :)
