Monday Mishmash: 11/24/14


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. Editing  I'm working on copy edits for The Darkness Within and then editing for clients this week.
  2. Thanksgiving  I'll be heading to my grandfather's apartment complex for Thanksgiving. It's always good to see him, so I don't even mind the two-hour drive.
  3. November's been a tough month  I've had a rough November. Most recently a friend passed away, but my luck went south before that too. I'm ready to move on to December and hopefully put the bad parts of November behind me.
  4. School Visits  I have two school visits (three presentations) next Monday, December 1st, so I'm getting set for those this week.
  5. Signing The Monster Within at Moravian Book Shop on Saturday  I'm heading back to Moravian Book Shop with Jennifer Murgia for the final stop on my book tour for The Monster Within. It's been a great tour, and I'm sad to see it end. I'll be there from 1-3pm, so if you're in the Bethlehem area, I'd love to see you.
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

  4. So sorry you've had a rough month, Kelly. Hopefully, your Thanksgiving will be joyful!

    I have a request :D. You did a post about author events. Can you do a post talking about how you go about arranging those author events? Do you do the leg work, or is it done for you? What goes into it? What kind of relationships do you develop before hand, or do you cold contact stores? How do you find out about the local events and festivals where you set up a booth? Please and thank you? :D

    I also finished another collaboration video that I'm really excited about
    (Especially because it involves Gabriel, the hero of my upcoming middle grade novel!)

    In the meantime, you can check out my first collaboration video with some new friends of mine-
