The North Wind scattered the papers to all four corners of the world, and The Bookshelf Muse put out a call to help find them in order to SAVE CHRISTMAS.
Ever since I read about it, I've been on the lookout. And then today, EUREKA!
Yes that's right...I found part of Santa's missing NICE LIST. There it was, fluttering in the wind, half caught under the corner of my welcome mat. And shock of all shocks, I recognized the name, and I bet you will too.
Here it is below:
NAME: Casey McCormick
LOCATION: Literary Rambles
NICE LEVEL: 99%
NAUGHTY LEVEL: 1%
OBSERVATIONS: Casey is the best blog partner and has become a great friend. First, she satisfied my secret wish to be her blog partner. Then she gave me the most detailed instructions ever on how to blog because I had NO clue how to do it. She's always given me great advice as I find my way in blogging and am now starting to search for agents. And over the two years we've been blogging together, I've got to know Casey. She's so knowledgeable, creative, a dedicated mom, and a great friend.
And these agent spotlights she does for us all is such a great service. I so appreciate all the time she spends researching the agents and then updating the spotlights. It's SO much work and so many people benefit from it.
CASEY IS THE BEST!
Because poor Pete is dashing all over the place trying to hunt down the rest of Santa's missing Nice List, I decided to take care of this one myself. Casey, I feel so blessed to know you! Enjoy the Amazon gift card I sent to your inbox and have a wonderful Christmas!
This is my last post until January 7th. I'll offline as of Saturday when I start my trip to China with my daughter. I hope you all have HAPPY, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
Thank you all for being such great blog friends and followers. I SO appreciate you all.

Here's what's coming up in January. I have an awesome month planned for you.
On January 7th, I interview debut author Ellen Oh and give away an ARC of PROPHECY, her new fantasy set in a Korean-like world. I so loved this book and am excited to share it right after I return from that part of the world.
The following Monday I'm interviewing Maya, a 5th grader and our follower Kristin Lenz's daughter, for my ASK THE EXPERT series. I'm also giving away an ARC of SHADES OF EARTH by Beth Revis. This is a fantastic end to the Across the Universe series and my favorite book in the series. It's amazing.
Friday that week I'm doing a Dreaming of Books Book Giveaway Hop. I'll have a fantastic list of popular books for you to choose from. These book hops are really popular so I'm going to try to do a few more of them next year.
And I also have interviews set with Marie Lu with a giveaway of PRODIGY, the second book in her awesome LEGEND series, Leigh Moore with a giveaway of ROUGE, a historical romance set in New Orleans, and with Michael Pierce with a giveaway of PROVEX CITY, a urban fantasy with contemporary issues.
And don't forget our Tuesday Tips and Casey's Thursday agent spotlights.
Hope to see you on January 7th!
