Monday Mishmash: 6/2/14


Happy Monday! Here's my mishmash of thoughts:
  1. BEA  I had a blast at BEA. I'll post pictures on Wednesday. I'm still recovering from traveling and packing up my house for an addition.
  2. Construction  Construction began on my house the Saturday of BEA. I came home to find I had no ceiling in my living room. I'll have to leave for a few days when they do the demo since my entire roof is being removed. Wish me luck. It's a crazy mad house over here!
  3. Editing  I'm working on a client edit this week and copy edits on my MG novel. 
  4. Blurbing  I'm reading a book right now that I have the honor of blurbing. I'm excited, but I only have a few days to read and submit my blurb, so eek!
  5. The Monster Within Teaser #4  Only two weeks until release day! Here's another teaser quote for you.

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

  7. Oh, we have renovations going on at my house too and it's so annoying. And baby is due in less than two weeks! Looking forward to seeing those pictures from BEA. Excited for you about the release...though I scored an ARC of The Monster Within from NetGalley, so I've already had the pleasure of reading it.

  8. Good luck with the demolition. I'm sure it will be wonderful when it's all said and done, but the getting there can sometimes be rough.

    1. Yes, exactly. I'm trying to keep my focus ahead on the end product because it's a nightmare in my house right now.

  9. It sounds like it's all going to be worth the inconvience. Just tell yourself "this too shall pass." (Hehe) Best of luck, Kelly.

  17. Yay, Kelly! I bet you are excited for the release of The Monster Within! I know I am=) This will be the 4th book of yours my niece will be adding to her collection. Good thing her birthday is coming up!
    Looking forward to seeing your photos from the BEA. And good luck with construction. We are remodeling our kitchen as soon as we get a few more estimates. As much of a pain in the behind it will be, it will be nice to see something new for a change.

    1. Oh yay! I'm honored that my book will be a birthday present for her. :)

      Yes, remodeling is great when it's finished. Then you know it's worth all the pain it takes to get there. At least I keep telling myself that. ;)

  18. Kelly, you are a source of inspiration as always! At this moment I am packing for my own remodel, and thought I wouldn't be able to get any work done. Good luck with the new release!

  20. After I reached the "no-ceiling" item, I sent good *constructive* thoughts your way. If you can manage that, you can do anything.
