Really Quickly: StemPac, Book News & the Contest!

Hi all, we've had a very busy family day and it's coming up on a four-day weekend, so I'm just posting VERY quickly.

First of all, don't forget to visit and find out how we're gonna get the bastards who don't support stem cell research out of office. The response to this grassroots movement has already been overwhelming, in its first week of existence. It's about time!

Here you can read Sen. Orrin Hatch's (R, Utah) story about how he met a young boy with Type 1 Diabetes and how it convinced him to support stem cell research. (Warning for sensitive types like myself, it contains explicit material about the boy's grandfather's very serious diabetes complications. Might want to grab your tissue box.) If a Republican senator from one of the most conservative states in the nation has seen the light about this promising research, I know it's possible for others too... particularly if we supporters make some noise. So visit and find out MORE.

And some BIG, BIG book news from the UK~The Bitch Goddess Notebook has debuted at #12 on The Bookseller's Original Fiction List and has sold out its first printing in its first week on the market. We're all very happy around here! I'll put the UK and American covers side by side...

I like them both!

Last thing, don't forget to enter the contest to win a free signed, first edition, first printing of The Bitch Posse. (The American edition of the novel is in its second printing too.) To enter the contest, just email this address and explain, in 250 words or less, why your high school sucks or sucked. The high school in this novel sucks very badly and most high schools do... so I thought it was an appropriate topic. I've gotten a number of terrific entries already, but the contest will run till Saturday at midnight.
