Monday Mishmash 8/4/14


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. Into the Fire SWAG  I have awesome swag for Into the Fire! I'm loving the fire pendants and phoenix buttons. Check them out. Watch for a giveaway soon since the book releases on September 9th!

  2. Free Monthly Newsletter  My newsletter goes out this evening. If you aren't signed up but would like to receive one, click here.
  3. Blog Tour Posts  I'm getting all my blog tour posts for Into the Fire together this week. Thank you to everyone who signed up for the tour. If you tried to sign up and were told the schedule was full, feel free to contact me. We can still set something up separate from the tour.
  4. Reading  I've been a little LOT stressed lately with the construction on my house. I'm coping by reading.
  5. Leap Books Editor  I'm so excited to be part of the editorial team at Leap Books. I'll be editing for all three of their imprints! I couldn't be happier about it. If you missed the big announcement about the new direction of Leap Books on August 1st, you can read it here. If you're interested in submitting to Leap Books (I'm not the acquisitions editor.), you can find their guidelines here.
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

  1. Another great week for you. I've signed up for the blog tour.

    This week, I'm doing the very final revisions on my novel, with help from my husband, and waiting to see if I'm on the shortlist for the competition I entered. If not, I'll be sending my novel off to the first of the agents on my list.

    Have a lovely week.

  2. Looking forward to your blog tour for Into the Fire, Kelly!
    I would be happy to post something later in September for your book on my blog. I have a lot to think about for possibly reconstructing my website but we shall see.
    This week will be hectic with work and trying to prepare for my vacation to Cozumel on Saturday. I'm hoping to get up one more blog post before I take a break for the next couple of weeks. Happy Monday!

  6. Very cool on the Leap news. They're a new publisher to me, so I'm having fun checking out their info. It's neat how they got their start, authors translating to publishers always intrigues me!

  8. I feel you with the coping by reading. There's something calming about losing yourself in a good book.

  12. I love the positivity. I hope the construction turns out okay. I know that can always be stressful times, especially if it is your kitchen that is undergoing construction.

    1. My kitchen was totally gutted. I don't know how my husband is living there. I took our daughter and fled to my parents' house.

  14. Coping by reading... I wonder what's on your list? There are books I would turn to in times of stress, and some I need calm and contentment on other fronts if I tackle them.
