Monday Mishmash 2/8/16


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. Blues Bones Cover Reveal  I couldn't be more excited to share the cover of Blues Bones by Rick Starkey because this is the first book I offered on as an acquisitions editor for Leap Books, Seek. It's an AMAZING story, and the cover is just as awesome. Check it out and preorder the book here for a special discounted price. The book releases March 7th.
  2. Into the Fire's New Cover  Into the Fire's new cover has been revealed as well. This book has been heavily edited AND new content has been added. I'm really happy with the end result and think readers will be too. For now, check out my gorgeous cover designed by Deranged Doctor. And thank you to everyone who participated in the social media cover reveal this weekend.
     
    Preorder it here.
  3. Editing  More client edits and edits for Leap this week. :)
  4. The S-word  No, I don't mean spring, though I wish I did. I'd like snow if it was warm and melted within a few hours. ;) We're getting two storms this week and I'm not thrilled.
  5. Drafting  Because my editing schedule is crazy, I got an idea for another adult romantic suspense. Of course! So I'm literary jotting down snippets of dialogue and scenes while cooking, lying in bed at night, and any other time when I can spare a few minutes.
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

  1. Wonderful cover for your book - so beautiful.

    Ideas tend to get me when I'm just about to drift off to sleep. In fact, ideas for novels 2 and 3 are depriving me of quite a lot of sleep at the moment.

    Much of the same for me this week - still working on the follow-up novel and waiting to hear from agents.

    By the way, we have a storm too (Imogen), probably another cast-off from the US storms.

    Have a great week.

    1. I just found out this morning that the storm will miss us for the most part. Woo hoo!

      Sorry you're losing sleep, but at least your muse is keeping you stocked with ideas. ;)

  2. Thanks for sharing Blues Bones! And congrats on your awesome cover reveal too!

    S is for spring. I'm ready!

    I think we are going to get 1-3 inches.

    Have a happy Monday.

    1. Yeah, they downgraded the storm here, so I'm happy.

      I LOVE your cover, Rick. You know that though. ;) And I LOVE your book.

  3. Great cover and congrats on Blue Bones. Good luck with the edits and new drafts. I recently had two dreams that inspired two new story ideas, one of which is a fan fiction. I understand about the snow too. I wouldn’t mind a snow day from work but my kids will be home too.

  4. We're supposed to get light snow today and tomorrow. I'm hoping it doesn't end up being more than on the grass...don't look forward to being trapped!

    I did your cover reveal on my blog today, as well as Twitter. Check it out if you get time!

  9. Yours and Rick's covers are both excellent.

    Snow's good for you! Just as good as the minus twenty temperatures with a wind that cuts into the throat....

    I know, I know, winter people are silly.
