Okay, so I thought it's only fair to mention some of the cool folks who have already started mentioning 13 TO LIFE on their websites. I mean, let's be honest--I'm not doing a ton of press and publicity stuff right now, so anyone who has discovered the existence of my upcoming novel deserves a pat on the back (or a scritch behind the ears, depending ;-).
So here are some of the spots around the blogosphere that I've found mention 13 TO LIFE... Lemme know if I missed anybody (and keep in mind if I know in advance that someone's going to mention the book or myself I'll try to pop in and be available to answer commenters' questions).
1.) At I WAS A TEENAGE BOOK GEEK 13 TO LIFE got named on Lauren's 2010 Debut Author Challenge and is one of her first 12 choices of what to read in the New Year! Woot!
2.) At THE LITTER BOX...SCOOP DAILY! Casse mentions 13 TO LIFE in I've Got Mail & She's Got Swaaaaag and that she got Jay Asher's novel (which she won here). :D
3.) Karen at TEENAGE FICTION FOR ALL AGES spotlighted the 13 TO LIFE book trailer for her Trailer Thursday! (My husband was like, "So, can you tell people I made it for you?" He loves recognition--and did a rockin' job on it! ;-)
4.) Over at OhKamikaze.net Jennzah names 13 TO LIFE as one of the 3 Books of the New Year (and the other two are Linger and Shade--so I'm in AWESOME company ;-). (Jennzah also named 13 TO LIFE in a previous post entitled "Is There Life After Twilight? Of Course There Is!")
5.) At THE CROOKED SHELF Carla mentioned 13 TO LIFE in her Vlog. :D She was the very first person to WoW 13 TO LIFE so I sent her a few wolfy goodies.
6.) At A PASSION FOR BOOKS Casey WoWed 13 TO LIFE! Yay! (I'm so sorry I missed stopping in the day she did it.)

10.) Katie at SOPHISTIKATIED REVIEWS also WoWed 13 TO LIFE. :D
11.) At RAMBLINGS OF A BIBLIOPHILE Nikki posted 13 TO LIFE's cover (everyone seems to feel it's gorgeous--and I am very, very lucky!) as one of her Friday Finds.
12.) 13 TO LIFE was also mentioned at THE DAILY DOSE where author Heather V. Long let me give away a jeweled bookmark for her Holiday Giveaway that is very symbolic of the novel. :-)
13.) Katie at BABBLING ABOUT BOOKS AND MORE also gave us some internet coverage before we got the official book cover--she's got the one that got us through Textnovel.com ! Talk about spotting us early! :D
14.) At ~BOOK EATER~ Beleth has truly given 13 TO LIFE an international flair
