12233063_10156253110730422_23162637_nI am more than just blogging this week — I am sharing exciting contest news.

A couple of weeks ago I was minding my own business when a friend, Michelle Chouinard, who happens to be a popular nail polish blogger at Lacquer or Leave Her, somehow hooked me up with Amy Milder, who makes literary-based polishes at Literary Lacquers. Amy invented two beautiful polishes based on the story of my newest novel, Veronika Layne Has a Nose for News. The purple nail polish is rich and holographic, aka glittery in a grownup way. It goes on beautifully. My manicurist loved it.

And here’s the juicy part: A set of these polishes can be yours free, plus signed (by me!) copies of Veronika Layne Gets the Scoop and Veronika Layne Has a Nose for News, by entering the Rafflecopter contest. Right now! As many times as you can until it tells you to stop. It involves a few clicks, as in signing up for my newsletter or following me on Twitter or Instagram, as your entry to the giveaway. (Read all the way to the end of this blog for more fun and free…)

Here’s the link: a Rafflecopter giveaway .
