Who's Matched with MATCHED?

by Madeleine Rex

Corny, yes. But that’s beside the point.

Wordbird is delighted and proud to announce the match between her copy of Matched and Ivy Hawthorn!

Thanks to all those who entered or spread the word in anyway! And for the birthday wishes!

Matched by Ally Condie; Giveaway

by Madeleine Rex

In celebration of my birthday (Thursday) and Halloween (tomorrow), I’m giving away a book! What book, you ask? (You seriously must be blind.)

Matched by Ally Condie

Penguin Books was awesome enough to send my an ARC, and as I already have a finished copy, I knew this was the perfect opportunity for yet another giveaway! If you’re curious, you can read my review here.

To Enter:

Fill out the form. (There are no extra entries because I don’t have the gusto to spend two hours adding them all up again!) This giveaway is NOT INTERNATIONAL.

Here’s the lovely form.

The giveaway ends November 19th. (Matched comes out November 30th.) If you win and are a blogger, I encourage you to review the book!

Happy Halloween! And thanks for all the birthday wishes, too!

I'm Fifteen!

by Madeleine Rex

Today’s my birthday! Madeleine Rex is officially fifteen years old. I’m both excited and nervous. The past year has been ridiculously productive, so I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot (often thanks to you guys!), but I’m also worried this next year will be a huge let-down and I won’t make nearly as much progress toward published-author-dom. We shall see!

As I have nothing to blog about today and this poem made me smile like mad, I’m posting the poem my aunt wrote in her birthday card to me:

A tribute may I offer

to Madeleine, the child author:

She writes no rubbish,

and they’re gonna publish

her work till they fill up her coffer.

I’m hoping so, Susan!
