What're you doing for Thanksgiving?

This week has been buuussy. BFF has been sick, I had a doctor appointment and have been doing a few Skype classroom visits. I'm still scheduling them with schools and book club, so if you want me to Skype with your school, have your teacher email me at jess_burkhart AT hotmail DOT com for details. I've meant so many members of Team Canterwood this week--it's been a blast! :)

So glad you all have been enjoying SCANDALS. Now, I'm totally focused on January and am waiting until UNFRIENDLY COMPETITION comes out on the 4th. It'll be a new year and time to let go of Sasha, in a way, and focus on the new lead character.

Okay, I've got to write 10-15 pages today to stay on schedule. Wish me luck! I haven't opened the blog to comments in FOREVER because of past problems, so I'm going to open this post for you all to chat, if you like. I have to approve/reject comments so they won't show up until I read them.

**Spoilers will be deleted!**

My question for you: What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

I'm having dinner with BFF and Ross.

Answer away--I want to know!

Heading to the gf's parents' house for dinner. Before that, going to my cousins' for dinner. First Thanksgiving with them ever so I'm really excited. Plus my cousin wants to be a chef and wow, can he cook.

So nice to have a retail job that doesn't require me to work Thanksgiving!

Have a good one. :)
Sleeping in, writing novels (finishing up NanoWriMo), going stores, reading, and avoiding HW!!!

Family is coming down and my sister gets to stay for a week. It will be a crowded house, but fun!
I hope you have a great Thanksgiving!
Scandals was great, but I'm getting sad that there's only one more book with Sasha! Can't wait for book 12!

What kind of YA Novel are you writing? Mandy Hubbard is a good choice or maybe Greenhouse Literary Agency...

OMG! I have missed posting on this website soooo much. There are other cool places to post to but I still miss posting here. Anyways I am doing the same thing as always for Thanksgiving...eating like a pig. I will be stuffing my face once at my grandma's house(mom's side of the family)and once at my uncle's house(dad's side of the family). It should be super delicous and fun as always although I am sad because four of my cousins have gone off to college so I won't be seeing them until Christmas. Normally we are all together at Christmas and Thanksgiving so that is sad...but it will still be lots of fun.

I'm going to my Grandparent's house for Thanksgiving! I get to see my whole family, and we are baking cookies for my granparents and everyone else. I'm so excited to be let out for school, I can't wait! BTW, I didn't get SRL yet, but I will over the weekend. I read them in like under 24 hours. Love 'em! Have a great Thanksgiving Jess and Kate! (Don't eat too much turkey!)
P.S. I love to read the Nancy Drew (All New) books and I like to read the Hardy Boys (All New) books, too. I was just telling you because you are friends with Kate who writes Nancy Drew who must know the anonymous author of the Hardy Boys books. I read them in 3 hours! (The longest was 1 day!) I wouldn't be able to live without 'em! Thanks! :)
