Monday Mishmash 11/4/13


Happy Monday! Here's my mishmash of thoughts:
  1. Big Announcement Coming Wednesday!  I have an announcement I've been dying to make, and I will in two days! Check back on Wednesday.
  2. Editing  Fall has been a busy editing season for me, and I couldn't be happier about it. I have such amazing writers for clients.
  3. Reading Three Books at Once  I'm trying to keep up with the books I need to review, so I'm reading three books right now. lol 
  4. Laffy Taffy  Why is this stuff so good? I can't stop eating the leftover Laffy Taffy from Halloween.
  5. Touch of Death Series Trailer  The Touch of Death series now has a trailer! It was revealed on Friday, but for anyone who missed it, here it is!

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

  2. Exciting. Will drop in on Wednesday. Great trailer. I can only juggle two books at a time.

    Back to school today. Back to writing too. My kids have been too much of a distraction over the half term break.

    1. Kids are a distraction from writing. I try to cram as much work into the school week as I can because when my daughter is home, I can't much of anything done.

  10. We have to wait until Wednesday. Talk about a cliffhanger. :)

    I'm reading three books, too. Must learn not to promise to review so many books at the same time.

    Have a great week.

    You go, Kelly - reading three books at once plus editing more. You would make a great detective being able to keep all of the details straight :-)

  19. I've been up to a lot lately. I'm working on scripts for new videos I'm doing.

    I also revamped my website. You might've noticed various changes in the last few days and I've finally made the the big structural changes. I'm still trying to fix some posts to make fonts in more uniform sizes.

    I'm also taking part in PiBoIdMo this year-

    Have you ever taken part in it? I know you're way busy know, but I know in your pre-first novel release you did a lot more contests and challenges like this, while picture books is still not my best thing, I HAVE the IDEAS, and this challenge is just to give yourself the focus and freedom to write them down.

    1. Good luck with PiBoIdMo. I don't think I could come up with that many ideas. Yes, I did quite a few contests before I got my agent. I loved them. I wish I had more time for them now.

  20. I'm looking forward to hearing about your news, Kelly! The trailer looks awesome and can't wait to read your book. No laffy taffies for me, however, I can't stop eating leftover M&M's and Reese Cups!
