Uh...I'm going with Essay #4, From Disaster to Diva.

Congratulations, by the way! You're in an anthology with JA! Woo hoo!

Keep it up :D

Perri Nelson 6/14/2007 08:10:00 PM  

I'm guessing it's #3 "Ranger as ... Hairy Godmother"

Susan Helene Gottfried 6/14/2007 08:15:00 PM  

The one about Lula, although I can't see you thinking self-help. But I like Lula and think she's underrated, so I'm voting for her. Which is logic she'd totally go with, don't you think?

Christine 6/14/2007 08:20:00 PM  

I'm going to guess Life on the Hamster Wheel. And congratulations!!

StarvingWriteNow 6/14/2007 08:49:00 PM  

Okay, I'll guess #10. And even if I don't win, the book is waiting in my Amazon shopping cart to buy because YOU ARE IN IT!!!!!!!!!!!

Tash, you rock!!!!!!!!!!!

Sarah 6/14/2007 09:01:00 PM  

LOL I love Plum!
Found you through the TT list! Great list for the week!

colleen 6/14/2007 09:42:00 PM  

That's great! I remember the first time someone recognized my name from something they had read. I blushed. Another time I saw someone open up the newspaper to the page where I had something published and my hands shook. I felt like everyone knew and could see I had a training bra on!



It's number 4, right?

Ann 6/14/2007 09:43:00 PM  

What the heck, I'll go with #13 Eeny, Meeney, Miney, Mo. Love that title *g*. Happy TT.

FRIGGA 6/14/2007 09:55:00 PM  

Hmmm... I looked at your hints, but they're not much help to someone who has no idea who this Plum character is. I guess #7 ;) because I like the title.
Happy TT13!

Ann Aguirre 6/14/2007 10:06:00 PM  

I have no idea, but I love Lula so I'm going with #4

Thomma Lyn 6/14/2007 10:36:00 PM  

I'm going to guess #8 because I think the title is cute: it makes me think of my little black cat when she's in a bad mood. :-D

Happy TT, and thanks for visiting my blog!

Joely Sue Burkhart 6/14/2007 10:41:00 PM  

*hangs head in shame* I've never read a Stephanie Plum! Cool on getting your essay included, though!

L^2 6/14/2007 10:41:00 PM  

I have absolutely no idea but I'll guess #11.
Congrats and thanks for visiting my TT. :-)

Julia 6/14/2007 10:52:00 PM  

I'm going to vote for # 4 because you seem to love Lula and I remember you mention you want to be her *GRIN*, from your hint link ;)

Happy TT and have good day! Thanks for visiting my blog :)

Lesley 6/14/2007 10:58:00 PM  

My guess is #3.

Congratulations on your essay getting published!

Gattina 6/15/2007 12:20:00 AM  

I like the Hamster in the wheel, that must be very interesting !

Aimless Writer 6/15/2007 06:55:00 AM  

I vote for Disaster to Diva too!
Now I'm going out to buy the book just to read your part.
;)

Cat Marsters & Kate Johnson 6/15/2007 07:25:00 AM  

I'm going for From Disaster to Diva: Why Lula Should Be the Next Self-Help Goddess.

But they all sound fantastic! I'm a massive Plum fan too (have the next one marked on my calendar). But unlike you, I've never been able to choose...Ranger or Morelli? Hell, I want both!

Congrats on getting your essay publoshed...that's fantastic exposure! I'm waiting on tenterhooks for Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter Compendium to come out, because I have a short story/parody in it. Brings out the squealing fangurl in me every time!

Rhonda Stapleton 6/15/2007 07:30:00 AM  

I'm going to guess #4. LOL

AND YAYYYYYYY FOR YOU! I am SO excited for you about this!!!

Debbie Mumford 6/15/2007 09:27:00 AM  

I'll guess #4 and join everyone else in yelling *CONGRATS!!!!*

LOL

Angela/SciFiChick 6/15/2007 09:58:00 AM  

How cool!
Stephanie Plum is great!

Amy Ruttan 6/15/2007 10:36:00 AM  

Very cool, I'm taking a random stab and saying 8 because I have no idea. But congrats anyways, that's awesome.

Happy TT!

Lorelei James,  6/15/2007 10:49:00 AM  

I think you really are Joe Konrath.

Anissa 6/15/2007 12:37:00 PM  

I'm guessing #4 Disaster to Diva. Congrats!

Kristin 6/15/2007 04:27:00 PM  

Thanks for stopping by my list, and congrats on your essay!

I'm gonna pick #10

Alyssa Goodnight 6/15/2007 04:49:00 PM  

I have to admit, I've never read a Stephanie Plum novel. Must be missing something!

Joy Renee 6/16/2007 05:11:00 AM  

it's gotta be #4 because it is the only one you put links in and they are the same links as your two hints above. mouse hover is a cool clue scoper.

but i read the two posts just to be sure and I'm sure. i think. maybe you were laying a red herring. that would be a mystery writer's thing.

way cool.

i know the feeling you described tho i've never been published other than a poem in my hometown newspaper. but a prof read one of my essays aloud to the class and i could not for the life of me stop snickering.

thanx for visiting my 13 addlepated moments

Rhian / Crowwoman 6/16/2007 06:16:00 PM  

i love the Plum tales but even more i love me some Ranger.
I'm gonna go with #4 just because it sounds like a fall outa my chair fun essay and #6 because the Stephanie stories from the viewpoint of her hamster - now that would be something.

FRIGGA 6/16/2007 08:10:00 PM  

So who won?
