Monday Mishmash 8/24/15


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. Editing  Surprise, surprise, I'm editing this week. ;) I have client edits and Seek edits to work on.
  2. Writing  I didn't get back to work on my novella last week. :( Maybe this week? Hopefully.
  3. Happy birthday to my mom!  My mom's birthday is tomorrow. It's also my cat's birthday on the same day. Happy day before your birthday, Mom! (She reads these posts, so feel free to wish her a great day.)
  4. Our Little Secret Blitz sign-up  Sign ups are open for the Our Little Secret Release blitz. No blog needed. Sign up here.
  5. First Seek Acquisitions  I acquired my first two titles for Leap Books Seek. I loved these books. Here is the announcement in Publisher's Weekly. 
  6. Fish Detectives is now available!  My newest picture book, Fish Detectives, is now available. 

When a treasure chest mysteriously shows up in the goldfish tank, it's a case for Horatio and Alexander, Fish Detectives. But a diver is guarding the treasure, and he's not talking. Horatio and Alexander will need all their comet goldfish speed and know how to crack this case. Suggested age range for readers: 4-8. Get it on Amazon.

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

  1. Happy birthday Kelly's mom! That probably reminds you of when she was a little girl in elementary school. Parents had no identity of their own they were just so&so's mom or so&so's dad. Anyway, thank you so much for bringing your wonderful daughter, Kelly, into our lives, I've enjoy reading her fantastic books. She probably gets a lot of her creativity, kindness, and thoughtfulness from you. Have a great day! <3 :)

    1. Ed, I've always said if I could be half the woman my mother is, I'd be very lucky. She's an amazing person. Thank you so much for the sweet words.

    I never read RL Stine's Fear Street stuff but I read his Point Thriller / horror etc, along with books by other authors. Love those books and still re-read them sometimes today ;)
