Few things!

Melissa is having a very fun Harry Potter Giveaway!
Talli Roland is having a spectacular blogsplash! Be sure to join!
Kim (my sister) took some fun "engagement" photos of me and my husband! Check them out and give her some blog love and support!!!


We've taken a break from the teaching's of things to know in the blogging world for a super awesome review & giveaway! Don't worry Elana, Alex will be back tomorrow & friday for more blogging advice!

It's going to be a Sunshiny Day... wanna know why?

Cause I'm sharing about Rose Cooper's debut novel Gossip From The Girl's Room!!!

Here's a synopsis:
Gossip from the Girls’ Room fills readers in on all there is to learn about middle school life at Middlebrooke, where Sofia has her very own blog and discusses all the juicy gossip that comes out of the Girls’ room; read along to find out just what happens when class is not in session.

In Sofia's words . . .
Mia St. Claire is only the most popular girl in all of Middlebrooke Middle School. For three very obvious reasons:
1. She's very rich.
2. She has tons of money.
3. She can buy anything and everything she wants. And she does.
I'm sure people like her for other reasons too, but none of those reasons are obvious enough for me to really know. Or care about, for that matter.

Here's my thoughts:
Sofia Becker is looking to be super popular with the! To get there she must find out things that other people don't know, and there is only one place to find that... the girls room.

She learns things uber-popular Mia, who she secretly despises, and later tries to befriend. Along with a few other secrets she finds she begins posting them to make her way to the top of the food chain.

Of course we all know that where you are at in Middle School and High School is where you'll stay, but Sofia's climb to the top is funny and sweet. Your typical Middle Schooler misplacing notebooks, losing & making up with friends, and working her hardest to be popular, you can't help but love this read!!!

In the end sometimes gossip will get you in trouble. Must read to see!

With fun words like Sunturday and awesome illustrations you'll be swept of your feet in awesomeness as this book takes you on one wild ride in Sofia's Middle School days.

So what better way then to have a giveaway! Up for grabs a Pre-ordered copy of Gossip From The Girls Room!

Here is how you enter:
Follow Me & Rose
Sidebar Us
Blog About Us
Comment - Now these are super special comments. You must leave one for both Rose and I. They must be SUPER creative and about the opposite person you post on. For Rose's blog the rumor must be more about me, and for My blog the rumor must be about Rose.

Rose's blog: Jen won Prom Queen after saving a cat from a burning building, but her boyfriend Billy broke up with her and decided to date Rose instead because he hated cats.

Jen's blog: Rose was invited to a pool party at Jimmy Parker's place but Jen stole all her clothes & bathing suit from the bathroom and Rose had to wear an ugly brown one piece instead.

Make sense?! So hop to it, comment on my blog and run over to Rose's and comment there. THIS IS MANDATORY, if you don't GOSSIP you won't be ENTERED.

How awful is that? I'm giving you permission to gossip about Rose and I... why wouldn't that be fun?

Matthew MacNish said...

Rose is the best! Heading over to those links now.

Talli Roland said...

Woohoo! What a great idea, Jen and Rose. And thank you for the shout-out!

By the way, OMG! Did you hear that Rose totally freaked out in Science the other day and burned off her eyebrows with the Bunsen Burner?!

vic caswell said...

rose forgot to flush!! eww!!!

(i know it's lame- but i'm not good at gossip! sorry!)

Crystal Cook said...

This is so fun :) And thanks sos much for the shout out!

I heard that Rose snuck in to the cafeteria and licked the back of all the spoons to get back at the school for making fun of her when her underwear was sticking out of the back of her skirt! Can you believe it?


Tamara Hart Heiner said...

you are so awesome for doing this!

on a total side note, I got my bridal pictures done 2 years after my then I had a little boy!

Samantha VĂ©rant said...

Do I get a vote on the engagement picture? (congrats BTW) I love the first one! It's just SO MUCH FUN. So that's my opinion. Not that you asked for it.

Stina said...

Definitely sounds like a cute book!

Great idea for a contest. Unfortunately my brain isn't awake yet--hence why I blog first thing in the morning. ;)

Erica Mitchell said...

LOL I love the gossip and the contest is super fun and cute. Like Stina I have to let my brain wake up before I do anything or the chances of me doing it wrong are substantial.
Thanks for all the linkage and synopsis! Really cute book and will be doing this later when I have had gone into function mode. ;)

Jenny Rose said...

Well, let's see, I'm already following both of you ... have no idea how to sidebar ... will try to tweet on both my sites and blogs (

Did you hear that Rose asked Jen to bake some cookies for Rose's boyfriend (because Rose can't cook)? But when Rose gave them to her boyfriend, she said she made them herself. Jen kinda suspected she might do that, cuz Jen sneezed and coughed all over the cookies before she gave them to Rose ;)

Jillian said...

Jen have I ever told you that you are fabulous!!!! hahah

and by the way ....did hear that Rose's real name is Mildred but she hated it so much that she faked being a witness to some major Mob Crimes just so she could get into the witness protection program and get a new name? Crazy right?????

going to check out those photos now!!

Jenny Rose said...

I've blogged
I've tweeted and I'm think I'm following you all everywhere I can (hehehe) :P

Theresa Milstein said...

I follow you both and I'll put this contest on my sidebar.

Here's the gossip I heard about Rose, she was home schooled. That's right - she's never stepped foot in a school, let alone the girls bathroom. This book was written after hours of interviews with students.

Laura S. said...

This reminds me of an updated, modern Harriet the Spy!

Candyland said...

The flowers Rose puts in her hair are from my flower bush. Wait that sounded gross. They're from the flower bush located directly behind my pot plant. There, that's better.

Unknown said...

Hi Jen,

This is the second time I have tried to tell you this. SSSSHHHHHH it's a secret. You can't tell anyone. Rose secretly takes picture of girls rooms all over the country. She has collected 432 pictures so far. Something about getting addicted to reading them when she was hanging out there for her last book. I really think she needs some intervention. What do you think?

I think Rose is deleting my posts. This is the third time I have tried this! I think she is jealous that I am your BBB Best Blogger Buddy.

Oh, well. Don't tell her but I have posted a link to your contest on my blog.

Tamika: said...

I remember reading a middle grade book my Louis Sacher entitled, Six Grade Secrets. It reminds of this premise, minus the main character having a blog! How cool is that:)

Lenny Lee said...

shhhhh. wow I got some really cool gossipy stuff for you! but first you gotta promise you wont tell miss jen. promise? good! ok here it is. i was peekin through a hole into that girls bathroom and i heard those girls talkin on how miss rose stole all of miss jens sparkles and brownies right smack off her blog when she wasnt looking. miss rose said now no ones gonna go to miss jens blog cause without those sparkles and brownies shes just real boring. they said miss rose put all those stolen sparkles and yummy brownies on her blog and now shes gonna be the most popular blogger on the whole net. poor miss jen. ok thats enough feeling sorry. come on lets go to miss roses blog and get some of those sparkles and a bunch of yummy brownies.

Terry Stonecrop said...

What great photos of you and your husband! Such a beautiful, joyful couple:)

I commented at your sister's. Talented family:)

That gossip book sounds good. I hope the gossip doesn't do too much harm and it has a fun and happy ending.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Hey Jen! Posted my thoughts on comments today. I think I freaked a few people out when I told them I comment on 100 blogs a day...

Lisa Potts said...

New follower, Jen. Now on to the good stuff.

Pssst. Rose wasn't really sick when she went home early from her last crit group. I saw her sucking down raw eggs in the parking lot before she went in! OMG, can you believe that?

Jennie Bailey said...'s not fun because I just went to Rose's blog and I really, really like her. AND her blog. So I'm torn because it's such a fabulous blog!

Rose is having a Girlz Night at her place and she didn't invite you because she heard from her neighbor's cousin's boyfriend's roommate's classmate's girlfriend that you have a really bad gas problem and would stink up the house. But you didn't hear that from ME. Okay?

Jolene Perry said...

Wow, you are busy over here!

Janet Johnson said...

Rose ate a fried worm after reading the book "How to Eat Fried Worms" and LIKED it. Now she secretly eats them every chance she gets. ;)

Fun contest!

RaShelle Workman said...

This is too much fun!!Can't wait to do some gossiping. Mwhahahaha. *smiles sweetly*

Lindsay said...

Now being an international bunny I'm not sure I'd qualify for this..but I posted about your contest on my blog for you :)

JE said...

oh wow---Lenny's gossip had me laughing so hard I couldn't stand it. I'm out!

Rose is coming out with a "Gossip in the boy's room", too, right? They really sound like fun!


Lindsay said...

Shush, did you hear Rose was the one who ate the last piece of chocolate! :)

Leigh Hutchens Burch said...

My suckiness as a blogger (and reader) have bottomed OUT lately.

I missed so many fun things over here -- like your Q and A. (That was awesomespice! I loved reading the questions that you were asked. So many of them were incredibly creative... it's obvious that a ton of writers follow you. :)

Missed ya!

Carolyn V. said...

Sweet! Sounds like awesomeness! Thanks for the links. =)

Lynda R Young as Elle Cardy said...

Psst, Rose told Bob who told Billy who told Zoe who told Sally that she thinks Jen eats too many brownies.

Amie Borst said...

ssshhh...rose is secretly crushing on my ben affleck incognito husband.

Melissa said...

Thanks for the shout out Jen!

Oh my goodness! This sounds awesome - the gossip contest. that's so cute.

Okay, okay.

So Jen, did you hear? Rose bribed the sorting hat to put her in Gryffindor even though it totally wanted to put her in Hufflepuff.

(ps. I don`t know Rose at all, so I hope she`s not offended!)

FoxFamily said...

Jen, Rose totally was spying on your husband through your kitchen window. She told me she saw him washing the dishes and was SO SO jealous. Now she's going to try to snag him to wash hers. Shhhh... don't tell her I told you.

Angie Ledbetter said...

Too much good scoop and gossip here already...think I'll just spread it a little further. Twitter, facebook? hmmm

Rose Cooper said...

Tali! Jen thought my draw on eyebrows were real and beautiful! I can't believe you told!

aspiring_x-That was YOU in the stall next to me humming?!

Thanks, Crystal. You saw my underwear that day too? You should probably keep an eye out for your spoons too!

Messy Mommy- I can TOO cook! I just like things...crispy. And Jen, I can't believe she would do such a thing. I thought she was made of all things sparkly and nice!

Vicki Rocho said...

LOVE that first picture of you hanging from that spiral-ish thing. What was that? you know what I heard? Sue told Mary who told Lisa who told me that Roy saw Rose cheating on her spelling test. But you've got to PROMISE not to tell anyone. You didn't hear it from me.
