Monday Mishmash 3/30/15


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. Drafting  I'm 60K into my WIP, so that means I'll be finishing the draft this week. Yay! My street team, Kelly's Coven, also helped me decide on a title for this book, which I'm very grateful for.
  2. Different Blog Schedule This Week  The YA Scavenger Hunt is this Thursday, so that means my blog schedule will be a little off. I will still be posting my Writer Wednesday, but since the YA Scavenger Hunt needs to stay up as my main post for a few days, I will not be posting a Friday Feature this week. Make sure you stop by to join in the scavenger hunt fun and enter to win a bunch of amazing prizes.
  3. Editing  I have some openings in my editing schedule, which is rare. So if you have anything you need edited, feel free to contact me (khashway@hotmail.com) and we can discuss what you need and get your scheduled.
  4. Beta Reading  I'll also be working on a beta read for a writer friend this week. :) I always enjoy beta reading, but I've have limited time for it this year.
  5. Conventions/Conferences  I'm really bummed that I have no conventions planned. I won't be at BEA this year. :( I'm SO sad about that. I'm trying to figure out if there's another convention I can get to instead. Any suggestions? I'd love to do one where I can also sign my books.
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

  2. Do a local rwa con. They usually have a one night signing and I tend to learn more from small conferences than large ones.

  4. Sorry to hear you won't be able to attend the BEA this year. It was such fun running into you there last year. :) I hope you find another conference to attend.

  6. I won't be at BEA either. My publisher and I have been keeping an eye out for small local events we can exhibit at.

    1. The prices of BEA this year for exhibitors is scary expensive.

  7. We've got summer break, so my writing is going to be limited, but I'm enjoying my time and learning at the same time. Good luck with all you have on your plate.

  9. That is too bad about BEA. I can imagine once you go, you want to go every year. It always looks so exciting, all the authors and free books. And a new book title, ooh! I love titles, next to covers, they're like crack to me. Uh... reading crack? ;)

    1. Lol Yup, reading crack. ;)

      BEA was heaven for me. I'm seriously heartbroken over it. My daughter is too. She loved exploring the city with my husband while I was at BEA. :(
