Devil's Kiss Paperback and I Gained A Minion [Saturday Steals]

So.  I have a little story for you.

I get the privilege of interviewing Rachel Hawkins and Sarwat Chadda tomorrow at Changing Hands.  So exciting.

Only problem is, I had never read Sarwat's work (that's changed now, but keep reading).  Their publicist sent me a package, but it hasn't arrived yet.

So I freaked out, "What am I going to do?  Blabber on about nothing?  Ask stupid questions?" *shrill eep* *deep breath*

I called around to Borders and find one that had Devil's Kiss in stock. It's also the only one staying in business near me, so I sent a minion, armed with a 40% off coupon and my Borders Rewards Card to retrieve it for me, it being free and all with my hard-earned Borders Bucks.

I tweeted something to that effect.  Sarwat picked up the tweet, kinda begged to be my minion too.  And now, I scored a free copy of Devil's Kiss and a minion.

Not bad for a Friday night's work.

That's like my worst nightmare—interviewing someone and not knowing the information I need to know to make it a good interview.

Hooray for you! Can't wait to hear the interview. Thanks for participating.
