Monday Mishmash 1/7/13

Happy Monday! Here's my mishmash of thoughts:

  1. Bad Boy Rehab Hop  I'm taking part in the Bad Boy Rehab Hop (hosted by I'm a Reader Not a Writer and The Book Hookup) and I'm giving away a copy of my upcoming YA romance novella, Love All, along with SWAG. Stop back on Wednesday to enter.
  2. Zombie Prom  I'm counting the days until January 20, which is my launch party in Boston! Woo hoo! I can't wait to meet everyone from Spencer Hill Press in person! And I get to meet my agent in person for the first time, too! :)
  3. Edits  I finished my second round edits on The Monster Within last week. I love that book so much. It releases April 2014 through Spencer Hill Press, and wait until you see the cover! I love it!
  4. Reviewing  I'm trying to catch up on all the books I promised to review for blog tours. Eek! There are so many!
  5. Scene13  I've joined up with more than twenty-five other authors with books coming out in 2013. We'll be blogging over at Scene13 about a lot of fun topics. January will be filled with posts about our characters' New Year's resolutions. My post goes up on the 9th.


That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

  1. What an exciting start to the year. I've decided to put returning to my novel off until February as January is turning into a month of tying up ends from 2012. That also gives me a chance to look back over my writing heroes' works and figure out what I love about them, what I want to read and hence what I want to write (does that make sense). I've also given myself a project this month of figuring out my novel's audience which isn't as easy as I thought it would be.

    Talk to you next week.

  7. On point #4, Kelly- I'd love to read faster... How do you do it?
    I think my life is already too short for all the books I'm planning to read.

    1. I'm so far behind with my reading. I don't think I read fast enough. I read while running on the treadmill, so I guess multi-tasking helps. LOL

  17. Congrats on all your success! All the blog hops you participate in, are your publishers helping you or are you just great at networking? I don't know how you find the time to see your family, work on edits, and write. Go you.

    Jan 20th is just around the corner!

    1. The blog hops are all me, but my blog tours are done through my publishers. So I guess we're each doing our part. :)
