Monday Mishmash 9/22/14


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. Murderer on the Loose  The biggest thing on my mind is Eric Frein, a 31-year-old man who shot and killed a police officer in my area. He critically wounded another officer, and now, Frein is armed, dangerous, and hiding somewhere in the woods. I'm scared. I wish they'd catch him soon. It's frightening that Frein is evading 200 police officers searching for him. I don't feel safe in my own home.
  2. Campus Crush is now FREE!  To celebrate the releases of Into the Fire and Perfect For You, I've decided to make Campus Crush permanently free. You can get your free copy on Kindle or Nook.
  3. Into the Fire and Perfect For You Reviews  So far, I've been blown away by the reviews for both of these books. Seriously, some have made me cry because people are relating so much to my characters and the emotions in these books. I couldn't be a happier author right now.
  4. #IntotheFireChallenge  The Into the Fire Challenge is still going on. You have until October 10th to get your review of Into the Fire posted on Amazon and be entered for your chance to appear as a phoenix in the third book in the trilogy. You can also win signed copies of all three books in the series. Go enter now!
  5. YA Scavenger Hunt  I'm happy to announce I'll be participating in the fall YA Scavenger Hunt going on October 2-October 5. I'll be part of the Green Team with my Ashelyn Drake title Into the Fire. I'm so excited!
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

  1. Hope that maniac is caught soon. Stay safe. Exciting week for you other than that :-)

    I've taken my novel as far as I can for now. It's been beta reader tested. I've made the final adjustments to it. Just need to save up to have a manuscript assessment now. In the meantime, I'm putting together notes and a plan for the next novel.

    Have a great (and safe) week.

  3. Ugh to the murderer!!! I know they'll catch him soon. He can't leave the woods or he'll risk getting caught, so there's solace in that, I suppose. Be careful out there!

  7. I seen a lot of news media about this guy. I'm so sorry you have to worry about him hiding somewhere near your area. I will send some prayers your way!
    I have Perfect for You in my Kindle. As soon as I get around to reading it, I would definitely love to post reviews.

  8. I, too, am sorry that you have to worry Fein. Take care of yourself and family and reach out for support as you need it. Love to see all the stuff that's going on with you. I'll download Campus Crush as I now have the Kindle feature on my Ipad and kind of know how to use it...lol

    I just got another idea for my blog (based on a recent post) which is good since I'm trying to write a week ahead of schedule. Am doing daily writing (at least 250s words) keeping track of it via the 'Magic Spreadsheet'. Am doing research now and outlining so that I can do NaNoWriMo and actually finish!

      Ooh, excited to hear your blog idea. And I'm sure you'll win NaNoWriMo. That's awesome that you are getting ahead with your research and outlining.

  9. That manhunt has made the news on this side of the border as well, Kelly. I hope he's caught soon.

  10. Oh, sounds chilling. I do hope he is caught by now.

  11. I've been following that in the news, Kelly. Stay safe! Maybe while he's been hiding in the woods, some big ole giant animal devoured him for lunch.

    1. I'd feel better knowing he was caught. If he gets eaten, we may never know.

  12. I hope they've caught the man by now. That would be scary, knowing he was somewhere nearby.
    You have so much going on with so many different books I don't know how you keep up with them all. :) Lots of fun though.
