Monday Mishmash 2/4/13

Happy Monday! Here's my mishmash of thoughts:
  1. Love All is only $1.99!  In honor of Valentine's Day, my publisher Swoon Romance lowered the price of Love All to $1.99. Grab your copy here before the price goes back up.
  2. Advantage: Heartbreak and Perfect Match  Novellas two and three in the Game. Set. Match. Heartbreak series have been pushed back to May 7 and October 15. I'm relieved. Spacing them out will make them much easier for me to promote. I've extended the time on the Team Ash or Team Noah poll in my sidebar to span the entire series. Don't forget to cast your vote. :)
  3. Touch of Death FB Quiz  The quiz is up and running! Now you can see how well you know Jodi and the other Ophi in Touch of Death. I've seen some of you have already taken it and posted your results on FB. Thank you! I hope you found it fun.
  4. Plotting a New Novel  I've been researching for a new book and playing around with Scrivener to help me plot it. So much fun!
  5. Into the Fire Cover Reveal  Month9Books made a video to reveal the covers of their new books and showcase those coming out soon. My YA paranormal Into the Fire is in it! I'm so excited. It's gorgeous! And it's the thumbnail for the video! Check it out!


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

  1. What a great video. I love the way they captured just a bit of each story and teased us with it. Congrats on another great cover.

      They really did a great job capturing the essence of each book and making you want to read it.

    1. I really like it, but every time I go to save it tells me it can't. Yet it does. It's very confusing.

    1. Beth, the official blurb hasn't been released yet, so really all I can tell you is what Month9Books put on the PM announcement:

      "TOUCH OF DEATH author Kelly Hashway's INTO THE FIRE, in which sixteen-year-old Cara Tillman, a descendant from the mythical phoenix bird, is nearing her rebirth where she will forget everything, including the love of her life, Logan, and attempts to embrace her last days with him even if it means drawing deadly phoenix hunters to her doorstep, to Georgia McBride at Month9Books in a 3-book deal, in a pre-empt for publication in Spring 2014 by LaurenHammond of ADA Management Group (World)."

  6. Wah! Awesome cover! They do some pretty good cover design over at Spencer Hill. As for Scrivener--

    Whoopee!! I love that program! Good luck! It is really for a particular kind of writer. You're a big pre-planner, right? So you will probably enjoy the heck out of it. A great way to store all your notes before starting a project. I'll be curious to see what you think of it after using it.

    1. Thanks, Kiersi. Actually it's Month9Books, not Spencer Hill Press. Though both put out amazing covers.

      I love Scrivener. The only problem is I have trouble saving. It always tells me the document can't be saved, which terrifies me, and then it saves anyway. Kind of stressful.

    2. Weeeeird! You should check with their customer support team. That's definitely not right.

      And apologies, Month9Books!

    3. I might have to. Thanks for the suggestion. And no apologies needed. :)

  8. Kelly, I'm glad you'll be able to take a little bit of breather. You've been busy, girl!

    And I can't wait to hear more about the new novel you're plotting.

  9. Yes, it's a welcome breather. Of course there really isn't a breather since I have two books out now. Ah, promotion. Grr. LOL

  14. That's a beautiful cover, eyecatching.

    This week I'm getting on with my third draft in my 'new' way and finding it much more enjoyable.

    Lots of things from 2012 were tied up in January so I'm enjoying 2013 now.

    Have a great week.

  15. You sure are busy. Congrats on the books coming out this year. The cover for Into the Fire is lovely. The video shows a lot of interesting books. This year looks like a good one.

  16. I am working on a new book, a very un-Brenda type of thing and having fun. Always surprising when being expansive and open to the possibly changes one's perspective. And fabulous cover. A good year indeed, but knowing you, your biting nails and charging full steam ahead.

    1. I think it's good to step outside your comfort zone and try new things. It can teach you so much about yourself.

      Thanks! I love the cover. :)

      Not biting my nails, but freaking out just a bit. ;)

  17. Your covers are just superb! You must be so happy with them!

  18. Gorgeous covers, and Into the Fire looks great. Touch of Death is now on my Kindle (yeah!) though it's got a few other *things* I must accomplish before I can get to it (boo).

    Best of luck on ALL these exciting projects of yours.
