53 This Week for Writers 12/16/11: Our Favorite Articles and Blog Posts

Congrats to Sherri Larsen, the winner of last week's giveaway of BEAUTIFUL CHAOS!

And for this week's giveaway? We have a special thank you to all of you. I happened to notice this week that we reached over 1500 followers through Blogger, not to mention all of you who follow us through feedburner. We are BEYOND grateful for all your support and encouragement over the past year and a half. We're continuously amazed by you and blessed to be part of the online writing community. In honor of all you do for us, we're going to give away 15 Young Adult and/or Middle Grade titles. To win, please complete the form at the bottom of this post. (Sorry, U.S. and Canadian entries only.) We'll pick the winner and show the titles and reviews on Thursday, but the are GOOD, I promise.

Thanks again, everyone, and big, fat, grateful hugs!
