Everybody's Talking About Surprises

Wednesday, March 16, 2011
Today bloggers everywhere are talking about surprises! Why surprises? Because we're celebrating Kristina McMorris's debut novel Letters from Home that contains a multitude of surprises.

Letters from Home (Kensington, March 1, 2011) takes places in the midst of World War II, a Midwestern infantryman falls deeply in love through a yearlong letter exchange, unaware that the girl he's been writing to is not the one replying.

The blogs listed below have agreed to share their stories, essays, poems, photos, or other means of creative expression on the topic of surprises. We really have no idea what's coming (it's a surprise!), but we can't wait to find out. The only guidelines we provided were to write about surprises--anything from planning a surprise party to your favorite movie surprise ending to winning the third grade spelling bee with the word "surprise".

A few things we do know are that these are all fantastic blogs and each time you visit a blog on the list you can enter to win the Everybody's Talking About Surprises prize. The grand winner will receive a personalized copy of Letters from Home, a Big Band CD, Victory Garden seeds, and more compliments of author Kristina McMorris!
