Monday Mishmash 10/21/13


Happy Monday! Here's my mishmash of thoughts:
  1. Tuesday Night TV  I have four shows on Tuesday nights! Pretty Little Liars, Ravenswood, The Originals, and Supernatural are all on Tuesday nights. Just my luck. Yes, they run at the same time, which means I'll be watching two of them on Wednesdays.
  2. Nothing To Tell Cover and Trailer Reveal  I'm organizing the cover and trailer reveal of the final and FREE installment of the Campus Crush Series by Ashelyn Drake. Want to participate? Sign up here.
  3. Crossroads Blog Tour  Yesterday was the official start of the Crossroads Blog Tour hosted by Judith Graves. I'm joining a bunch of authors for this tour and the grand prize is a Kindle loaded with all our books. Don't miss out.
  4. Announcement Coming November 6  I've hinted that I have an announcement to make. It's coming November 6th.
  5. Cricket's Drive Around Town Trailer  My next picture book, Cricket's Drive Around Town, is set to release December 3, 2013 through FutureWord Publishing. Here's the trailer my publisher made for the book.
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

  1. Fun title for your upcoming release. Let me know when it's out and I'll tweet about it.

    1. I second that, Kelly, I wish I had your way with picture books. Your publisher did a good job of the trailer, speaking of which, I never knew how you felt about the other two of the three trailers I did for Gabriel. I'm glad Rum's came out great (He apparently is a favorite among out mutual writer friends) but I do wonder what people think of Gabriel and Mr. Quint's trailers.

    2. Taurean, I have to get over there and watch them. Heading there now. Sorry about that.

    3. I understand. Life's been crazy on my end, too. Read your comments before running errands, glad those came off well, too. I was really worried about Gabriel's trailer as I didn't want him to sound too young or old, the actor I found really got the tone right.

  3. I liked the trailer. I thought it was neat that the scene where the cricket is peaking in the classroom and the teacher is reading your other PB May the Best Dog Win, is on the bookshelf.

    1. Dawn, it's actually a library, but I loved when I saw the illustrations and May the Best Dog Win was on the bookshelf. So cool of my illustrator to do that. :)

    2. That was so cool of your illustrator. I love easter eggs in books. in many of the original Arthur books (Before the PBS series) Marc Brown hid his kid's names in the background. Some of them I found, but didn't know what they meant until he did a bit on the show that explained it.

      Some of them are obvious, but others I would never have found on my own, illustrators can really clever, can't they?

    3. Taurean, Ayla and I love finding the names in the Arthur books. :)

    1. Yeah, I have to record it because Pretty Little Liars is my favorite show. It creeps me out and I love that. ;)

  5. You will probably think me a total chump, but I only recently started watching Supernatural. WTHeck? How could I have been missing this all these years? So...my daughter and I have been watching episodes on Netflix. We're almost at Season 3. I'm getting antsy.

    1. The beginning season were so much better in my mind. They used to be scary/creepy. Now it's more gory. It kind of makes me sad.

  10. Great stuff! Just started writing sequel to new book. Hard work!

  11. Ugh, don't you hate when all the shows you love are all on at the same time on the same day? I feel that way with Project Runway, Scandal, Elementary and Parenthood. Not to mention The Walking Dead, Homeland and Revenge. Why do they do that to us? LOL :-)

  12. Love the Cricket's Drive Around Town Trailer! The song suits it too. :D

    Congrats Kelly!

    1. I haven't checked out Sleepy Hollow, but I heard it was good.

  18. I never thought of a cricket as cute, but yours is. I was tapping my toe to the music too. A fun story. And all your other news is interesting. You're quite busy. Have a super week.

  21. A fun teaser!

    Nice thing about computers these days: being able to watch programs that are on conflicting schedules.

    1. Yes. I'm grateful for that since all my shows are on the same night.

  22. An announcement, eh? Hm. I'm looking forward to Originals starting here next week. Looks good. Great trailer for your picture book.

  23. I can't wait to read your announcement.

    I miss TV. I wish there were more time to watch it.

    1. I don't watch much, and now that the shows I like are on at the same time, I suspect I'll end up dropping a few because I won't keep up with watching them on my own on a different night.

    2. I don't suppose you could watch them on Hulu later, could you?

      If not, do what I do, get them on DVD/Blu-ray. The ones you really love are worth it.

      Despite statistics that say streaming is king, not everything is (Legally...) available to stream, or only for a limited time.

      Besides, buying the discs is another way to support those who make what you love in the first place, and I can watch whenever I want, in whatever order I want, and no commercials.

      I try to limit my television watching, which has been easier when my older favorite shows are available to stream or on DVD. The one show I'm addicted to network-wise is The Legend of Korra, that I will MAKE time for, and if I can't watch right when it airs, I record it for the next day.

      I also watch a lot of cooking shows, as food's my other pastime when it's not writing or learning about writing.
