Monday Mishmash 4/14/14


Happy Monday! Here's my mishmash of thoughts:
  1. YA Fest  I'll be at YA Fest this Saturday (April 19th) signing copies of Touch of Death, Stalked by Death, and Face of Death. I'll also have plenty of SWAG including bookmarks, zombie limb candy, and buttons. I'm excited.
  2. Revisions  I'm currently revising three of my novels all on deadlines ranging from tomorrow to May 15th. I love revising. It's when I really get attached to my characters.
  3. Client edits  I'm also editing for clients. I have several edits scheduled through this month and May, which always makes me happy.
  4. Spring pictures  I'm working at my daughter's school on Wednesday for spring pictures. It's always fun to see the kids dressed up.
  5. Happy Holidays!  I wish you all a very happy Easter and Passover. 

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

  1. You're always doing exciting things. YA Fest sounds awesome. I'm busy writing the sequel to my novel, Finding Me and a novella for the same book from an alternate point of view.

  2. Have a wonderful Easter. I'm off with the kids for 2 weeks - hope the weather stays dry so I can drag them away from their computers and DS's.

    I'm polishing the first four chapters of my novel, writing a one page synopsis and working on a short bio to submit to a children's novel competition. This involves me nagging my husband and children to read the chapters. I've also asked a writer friend to look over them too. Very excited.

  4. I hope you have a fantastic Easter holiday with your family, Kelly. I'm working on the 1st draft of my novel and overtime at the day job so it will be quite busy. I'm hoping the weather will also permit a run outside to we shall see! Happy editing!

  5. Right this second, I am glumly preparing to go to work on what should have been the first day of spring break. :(

    How much fun to have all three books there to sign at once! It's a real accomplishment!

  12. Have a great time at the YA Fest. Edits are fun because you're looking forward to the end result, the published book. I remember how cute the students looked on picture day. You hoped your class had theirs taken before recess. :) Have a great week.
