Introducing The College Chronicles

So some of you may have noticed that I'm currently in college. Yes, that's right, I am officially an Elementary Education major attending Taylor University in Upland, Indiana. I've been #LiveTweetingTaylor (although  it took me a few tries to get the hashtag right... #fail) and texting around photos of stuff like chapel or my new haircut.











OKAY yeah sorry got a bit carried away there.... but TADA!


I AM CLAUDIA DONOVAN.

Or... you know, almost. Not quite to her level of sarcasm and genius yet. Nor, sadly, do I work at Warehouse 13. But whatever, I've got the hair down.

Anyway... the point of this post is just to announce an upcoming series in which I write posts (and/or possibly VLOG yes I mean vlog!) about college. You know, from my random individual freshman point of view.

It will be called The College Chronicles and I really don't know anything else yet. So stay tuned!

Contest News

Well, I have bad news and I have good news.

The bad news is, only two people (only two?!) entered my review contest. Sad face. (Note to self: back to school is probably the number one worst time to host a contest.)

The good news is, this means I'm extending the deadline! The contest will now be open until either we have a minimum of sixteen reviews (you know, title = book happy number... or something) or midnight September 30, whichever comes first. If we reach the sixteen-reviews mark, the winners will be chosen and awarded as originally planned. If we do not, the contest will be called off. (Oh noes! Please don't make me do that!)

As a thank-you to the two lovely ladies who actually did enter, I'll be sending them a little surprise after the contest ends regardless of how this goes down.

To see the original contest rules (all of which still apply, except the deadline) check out this post: http://emilyrachellewrites.blogspot.com/2014/08/its-contest.html

And tell your friends! Just so you know, my book is only $1 on Kindle (cheaper than a cup of coffee!) and it takes around an hour to read the whole thing. I don't usually push my book on people, but apparently most of my classmates thought it was a couple hundred pages, so... really, it's not that much a commitment here to win lots of cool free stuff.
