It’s the wonderful Adele from Persnickety Snark‘s birthday on 13th May. She is teaching in Japan at the moment – usually she’s at home in Australia. I think/hope it’s the morning in Japan right now; this time difference thing gets really confusing…
Thanks to Adiba Oemar, children’s publishing goddess from Random House in Australia (we met through THE ETERNAL KISS, yay!) for coming up with this plan. I was more than happy to open up my blog to post these videos and send Adele lots of happy birthday wishes. She’s such a lovely person and she’s passionate about YA lit and the blogging community.
First up, Adiba herself, who wanted to say:
Otanjoubi omedetou gozaimasu I hope you have an amazing birthday, don’t party too hard!! I can’t wait for you to see the rest of the videos, you are going to love them 🙂
BIG thanks to Karen for letting me post on her site, she’s amazing!** Check out her new story in Kiss Me Deadly out August 2010 (Australia).
Next up, fabulous Kristi (a.k.a. The Story Siren):
And here is the awesome Elizabeth Scott:
The one and only Melissa Walker:
And… me! I totally rambled – sorry, it’s really long. LOL! But hey, this is my first ever vlog. Fear me! *g* Now I know how to do these things, who knows what could happen:
There could be some more birthday messages floating around out there – if so, I’ll edit this post and link to them.
HAVE A GREAT DAY, ADELE!! 🙂
*Blog Every Day May is my attempt to blog each day of May – just to see if I can.
**Amazing? No… But it’s nice of Adiba to say so. Tee hee…
