Happy Friday! Sorry we're little late getting the party on. Just when we think it's safe, the power goes out again! I'm sitting at Panera and I really wish I had my camera with me... This place looks like an office. Laptops at every table. A lotta people in my same situation, it looks like. We love Panera and their free wireless! Thank you, Panera! In fact, for today's winner, I'm going to add a Panera card to the gift package to show my appreciation.

Meanwhile, let's get back to celebrating the launch of DEATH BY LATTE! Today's guests are Micol Ostow, Marley Gibson, Stephanie Hale and Wendy Toliver. Be sure to scroll down to catch their posts and your chances to win! You can also leave comments on yesterday's posts until Monday, September 22 to be entered for those prizes.
