Monday Mishmash 12/30/13

Happy Monday! Here's my mishmash of thoughts:

1. Spencer Hill Press/Spencer Hill Contemporary Twitter Chat  January 2 (Thursday) at 9pm is a SHP/SHC Twitter chat. I'll be there talking about my upcoming release, Face of Death. There will be lots of authors and good stuff, so check it out using the hashtag #SHP2014.

2. New Year's Goals  I'm setting my goals for 2014. I'll share them soon.

3. Fun with Banners  I've been creating banners for all my sites. I added the animated banner to this blog a while ago, but I just added banners to my Ashelyn Drake blog and my website. Here's what they look like:




I'm thinking about offering banner making as a service, so stay tuned for more info on that.

4. Darkly Delicious YA Feed Your eReader!  Over on Darkly Delicious YA, we've got a Feed Your eReader post telling you about all our books and the sales going on right now. Check it out here


5.  Editing  I had a mini break between client edits to work on a revision of one of my Ashelyn titles, but now I'm back to client edits. I have two scheduled and then I'll hopefully work on a YA paranormal I drafted a while back.

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

  1. The love the new look. Great banners. I'll have to keep you in mind when I need to get banners created. There are a lot of great sales going on right now. Just today I think I purchased 4 books.

    1. Thanks. I'm going to make the single image banner very cheap, like $15. I just like making them. :)

      Ooh, now I have to go book shopping to check out the sales.

  11. It's been a while since I felt dizzy by the load your Mondays heap, but here we are, again. You put a lot on your plate, and you get it done. Awesome.

  12. Kelly, I love your banners! They are so creative! You should definitely offer making banners for other authors and bloggers.
    I'm still deciding on my aspirations for the New Year. Will be looking forward to what you have to share with us=)

  13. I love your banners! Especially the one with the feet. So cute! The big one at the top is so awesome, I was sure you must have bought it. I love photoshopping stuff and have a new blog header to reveal next week (I'm waiting because I'm doing a friend's release on Fri and don't want anything to distract from her big day). Good luck with your editing and revising. Wishing you a productive week!

  14. I'm thinking of the visual representation I made of all my writing goals for 2014. And... I'm suspecting I'm nuts.

    Best of luck with 2014! ;-)

  15. The chat sounds like fun. I'll tie a string around my finger as a reminder. Then try to remember what the string is for. :) Your banners are neat. Best of luck with your goals. Guess it's time for me to make some. Happy New Year.
