Kathryn gets Skinned with SkinIt!

Microsoft’s first ever retail store opened in Scottsdale’s Fashion Square Mall last October.

Seems the folks over at the MS store have invited local authors to add their book covers to SkinIt skins through something going on involving Facebook. (Ah! Now you know why I’m back on Facebook!)

Joy Collins, my friend on the other side of town, forwarded an invitation to local authors to participate in the MicroSoft Store/SkinIt/Facebook project.

Deanna is the store contact person. She offered to help me do the prep stuff this Thursday (you knew I’d need help, didn’t you?). I’ll blog about what went on when I met with Deanna. Should be cool.

I like tech stuff, I’m just a bit slow on the uptake on some of it.

For the three-day event in the store (Jan 22, 23, & 24) my time to be there (and do what???) is Friday, January 22, from 5-6 PM. If you are in the Phoenix area, stop by and check out the skins from my books.

Well, ain’t that cool! I played with the 'design your own skin' feature on the SkinIt site. They have the template to skin my laptop. Interesting process. What do you think about all of this?
I've added a pic of my laptop (open) with its new skin on it. See above.
