Monday Mishmash 8/11/14


Happy Monday! Monday Mishmash is a weekly meme dedicated to sharing what's on your mind. Feel free to grab the button and post your own Mishmash.

Here's what's on my mind today:
  1. Two Blog Tours  Since I have two Ashelyn Drake titles releasing on September 9th (Into the Fire and Perfect For You), I've been busy with blog tour posts. They're almost ready to send to my publicists.
  2. My Dream Office  Even though I won't be able to settle into my new office for a while yet, I'm dreaming of my oversized chair to work and read in, my large desk with bookshelves, and the cheery daisy paint color I picked out. I can also finally frame the giant posters of my book covers my husband had made for me. It's going to be epic. Now I have to work on that pesky thing called patience.
  3. Painting and Flooring  Last week the construction at my house, which had involved gutting the entire first floor, progressed to painting. This week I'm hoping to have the painting finished and flooring going in so I can go home before the summer is over.
  4. Editing  I'm editing for clients this week, and I already have clients booking me for next month too.
  5. The Monster Within Book Blitz  Fandom Monthly Magazine is hosting a book blitz for The Monster Within August 15-18th. I'm looking forward to it. 

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

  1. Hope you're back home soon. Your new office sounds wonderful - especially like the big chair. Looking forward to getting your response back to my interview questions.

    This week, I'm working through my husband's critique of my novel. Then I have to decide whether to have a manuscript assessment or whether to begin submitting to agents.

    Have a great week.

  3. Oh yes, patience can be so very pesky... and elusive!

  6. Looking forward to your new releases. Remember me when your MG novel and PBs are ready. I'd love to spread the word. My grand daughter is excitedly waiting for Curse of the Granville Fortune.

  9. You're certainly busy. The book tours should be fun. I think I'm signed up for at least part of them. Having a new office is awesome. (I need to redecorate mine.) Good luck with going home before summer is over. Have a super week.

    1. I hate construction at this point. lol It's almost done though. Well, the downstairs at least. Then we move on to the upstairs but I can live at home for that.

  12. Planning office spaces is so much fun! I can't wait to get to see yours! (apparently I stink at patience too, lol)

  13. After all this, when it's done, we want a picture of your new and glorious office!

  14. I have a dream office, but I may not ever actually own it. lol I agree with Mirka that we want to see pictures of your new office when it's done. :)
