Monday Mishmash 6/10/13

Happy Monday! Here's my mishmash of thoughts:
  1. Last week of school  My daughter's last day is Thursday. I can't believe she's going to be a first grader soon.
  2. Free Monthly Newsletter  With the excitement of BEA, I forgot to send out my monthly newsletter last Monday. It will go out at 5pm EST today. If you aren't signed up yet but would like to receive one, click here.
  3. Advantage: Heartbreak  I'll be posting a teaser this Wednesday for my second novella in the Game. Set. Match. Heartbreak series. Check back for it.
  4. Melinda's Museum Magic  My newest picture book is here! You can find Melinda's Museum Magic for sale on Amazon
  5. Stalked by Death teaser  I made a teaser video for Stalked by Death. Check it out. 

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

  2. Congrats Kelly! Today I'm making time to catch on sending out interview questions to folks I'd like to interview for my blog, doing some academic writing and working on creativity coaching practice. A full day!

  5. This is my kiddos' second week off. Summer tutoring and camp and reduced hours at work (& swim team) are my new life.

  6. Working on professionalizing my image with a new headshot (gulp) that's not cropped from something else. Finally cleared off a couple dozen dead tree books that I'd placed in a TBReviewed stack on my favorite reading chair and had been sitting there since Christmas, under the theory that it would FORCE me to review them. (What it forced me to do was to sit in another chair.)

  9. Congrats on the picture book. Looks great.

    I've got a mixed week from chick handling and feeding buffalo calves to reading and writing.

  13. Your new picture book looks fabulous! Can't believe your daughter is almost a first grader. I remember reading on your blog that she was getting ready to start school! Time flies. :)

  14. Your museum book looks so cute! I'll have to see if we can get it for our education library.

    On my mind:
    1) Drafting. I LOVE this stage of writing.
    2) Camp NaNoWriMo. It starts July 1.
    3) Summer weather. It's so nice outside finally!
    4) Vacation. My wanderlust has kicked into high gear.

  15. This week is mainly preparation for the weekend - Saturday - my son's 9th birthday, Sunday - father's day, Monday - husband's birthday. Husband doesn't want cards so my kids are putting together Powerpoint birthday presentations for him instead. I've had a professional critique back on the first two chapters of my novel, very positive, which gives me confidence that I'm on the right track plus some areas to work on too. More work to do on my novel and on my latest murder mystery play too. I might sleep sometime next week.

  17. Adorable cover for your picture book. Congratulations.

    Yes, the years sure do pass by. And the little ones just keep growing.

  18. Congratulations on ALL the above, and a special hug to your daughter this Thursday. Everything begins with first grade, so there will be many more graduations to go to in your future. Many books too, no doubt.

      Now they teach reading in kindergarten. I love it! She's already reading and do math equations. :)

  19. LOVE IT. Nothing much going on over here, working with an editor on one of my stories, sending off a novella as requested by an editor, working away on my novel and branding strategy. Bulking up.
