Friday Roundup—Texas Sweethearts Style

Thank you so much for visiting The Texas Sweethearts!

We're looking for all sorts of great things in the months ahead. We've got school visits, conferences, and even a book release. Yes, we're about a month away from the release of FRONT PAGE FACE-OFF by Jo Whittemore! And to celebrate, Jo is running a contest on her very cool blog. All you have to do is tell her what your favorite candy is, and yes, you could win a candy gift certificate. So, if you have a second, head over and take a chance!
