Monday Mishmash: 6/16/14


Happy Monday! Here's my mishmash of thoughts:
  1. The Monster Within Release Tomorrow!  Tomorrow is the big day! I wrote The Monster Within the first twelve days of 2012, and I signed with Spencer Hill Press the following September. It's been a long wait, and I'm so excited to share Sam and Ethan's story with you all. 
  2. Face of Death is the Kindle Big Deal  Face of Death is part of the Kindle Big Deal June 13 through June 28th! That means you can grab a copy for only $2.99! Get yours here. Oh, and Touch of Death is now only $2.99 as well since the full series is out. :)
  3. Construction  The construction that was supposed to happen on my house last week got pushed back because it rained all week. Today begins the demo and the craziness so if I'm not online as much, you know why.
  4. Father's Day  I hope all you dads had a great Father's Day. I didn't get to see my dad, but I we'll celebrate another day. I did have a nice day with my husband, daughter, and my in-laws though.
  5. Revisions  I'm finishing up revisions on a YA title my CPs got back to me last week. My goal is to send it to my agent in the next couple of days.
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

  2. Ooh, good luck and congratulations for tomorrow. Me, just the usual, frantically redrafting my novel. Have a great week.

  3. It IS a long wait from the writing to the release, isn't it?
    And 12 days? You wrote a whole first draft in 12 days? Even giving that I'm retiring from teaching to write full time, I kind of doubt I'll be able to write any first draft in 12 days. (Revise & edit -- no problem.)

    1. It takes me much longer to revise than it does to draft. The ideas come easily. Perfecting them during revision takes time. I never thought I'd be able to write this quickly either until I stopped teaching to write full time. I bet you surprise yourself with how much you can write each day now.

  13. My father passed away five years ago. On Father's Day I got the urge to wear the only pair of earrings he had given me, only I couldn't find them in the chaos that my earring collection had become. Enter: Make Order Day. Earring found, worn, and cheers to dad!
    Your week sounds as productive as ever. Sorry the postponed construction will keep your Make Order Days a bit farther away, but I have full confidence you will get there with panache.
