Valentine's Day is just around the corner...and I'm feeling a vlog post coming on!  As an author with one published romance under my belt, I'm seeking questions on the romance genre...your questions can center on my YA love story, PLAYING HURT, or can focus on the genre as a whole (either from a reading or writing perspective). 

Shoot me your questions in the comments below, on Twitter (@holly_schindler), or through my author page on Facebook

I'll choose about three or so questions to answer in my vlog.  If your question is chosen, you'll win your choice of a signed bookplate or a signed bookmark.

Thanks in advance for your fabulous questions!

I just had to share: Kristin O'Donnell Tubb sent this super-cool T-shirt in thanks for featuring her book, THE 13TH SIGN, on Smack Dab in the Middle!  Seriously, how fun is that?

Speaking of fun, the book itself is a blast.  If you're one who always checks your horoscope each morning (like I am), you'll love this exploration into the role our signs play into our personalities.  One of my favorite aspects of this book is that I think it'll snag girls who don't necessarily gravitate toward adventures.  Check THE 13TH SIGN out on Goodreads and purchase on Amazon.

I can't tell you guys how much I appreciate all the Happy Birthdays you sent last week.  You broke your own record!  I literally received hundreds of well-wishes this year.

Birthday Flowers - Aren't they cool?  I think they look like paintbrushes.
I've got a ton of new Birthday Goals, too, aimed at making 36 the best year ever...and many of those goals involve producing my best work yet for my fabulous, loving readers!
In the meantime, you can head over to Books a la Mode to win a signed bookplate.  (The giveaway is international.)

One of my end-of'-'12 resolutions was to shut down the computers in the evening and spend my nights reading.  I think all authors struggle with balance; I know firsthand how easy it is to get lost in my own work, or to get so involved with new marketing ideas that I suddenly look up and discover that what had felt like twenty minutes was actually four hours.

I've been really enjoying my end-of'-'12 resolution...Carving out time to read's a little like making a resolution to eat more chocolate.  Here's a glance at my holiday bookshelf:
