Monday Mishmash 2/24/14


Happy Monday! Here's my mishmash of thoughts:

1. My daughter's birthday!  My daughter turns 7 on Wednesday. Excuse me while I faint, because I don't know where seven years went. 

2. Busy April  I booked my 3rd author event for April. I'll be at the East Stroudsburg Family Expo on the 6th, YA Fest on the 19th, and the Monroe County Book Expo on the 26th!

3. Campus Crush  I rereleased all the Campus Crush novellas, which I publish as Ashelyn Drake, in one book titled Campus Crush. And...it's only $1.99 so anyone who has already begun the series will actually still be paying less than the price of the final novella. Everyone wins! Check out the gorgeous new cover!
You can order it on Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

4. Drafting  I'm working on drafting the third and final book in the Birth of the Phoenix series. The first book, Into the Fire, will release in September.

5. Campus Crush Book Blitz Sign Up  I'm looking for people to sign up for the Campus Crush Book Blitz which will take place February 26-March 6. If you don't blog, you can post to FB or Twitter, and you get to choose which date in that period that you post. Sign up in the form below.

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

    1. Thank you so much for signing up for the book blast, Cecilia. I really appreciate it.

      Yes, time goes way too quickly. And my daughter acts more like a teenager than a soon-to-be seven year old sometimes.

  2. Happy Birthday to your daughter! Those are such happy times. They grow so fast.

    I'm intrigued about you releasing all those CC novellas in one volume. Great idea! Best of luck with it.

    1. Thanks, Sheri. I hope people enjoy the convenience of having all four stories in one and also the price cut. :)

  3. Aw, 7 is a lovely age. Mine are 10 and 12 this year - scary. You've got another busy week. Me too - finishing off my second commission and planning for my third, with a fourth in discussion. Managing to fit a little time in on my novel. Have just had confirmation on writing an article for a working from home website too. Plus it's half term hols here so I have children (and my husband) to amuse.

    Have a great week.

  12. Happy birthday to your daughter and hope you all have a lover-ly time celebrating it. =) As I'm finding out w/my son, birthdays in cold months limit fun activites sometimes. Tho I didn't know as a kid- I was a June bug, lol!

    1. I'm a December baby so I'm pretty used to this. I just can't believe I saw snow in the forecast for next week. That's March! I planned her party for March 8, so the white stuff better be gone by then or it's getting an angry momma after it.

    1. Time does fly. You have a release coming up! Let me know if you want a feature on my Ashelyn blog (it better suits the anthology, I think). I'm happy to have you.
