New Month. New Resolutions. New Book. (And a New Giveaway Winner)

I’m a cartoon! Sort of. I promise that I won’t make my entire blog a commercial for my new book. But, you know, it’s exciting, and I think that little bookmercial is just about the coolest thing ever.

Raffle to Cure Cancer…And Read on a Pretty New Kindle

As many of you know, at least those of you who have been reading The Kim Challenge for a while now, I am incredibly passionate about the charities I support.  Before I worked as a writer full-time, I worked in the non-profit arena, raising money primarily for health organizations.

Well, I don’t sit in a cube […]
