Monday Mishmash 11/19/18


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 editing for clients again this week.
  2. Decorated for Christmas  My daughter and I have both been under the weather, so my husband finally caved and let us decorate for Christmas even though it's not even Thanksgiving yet. :) Luckily, we're both feeling better now as well.
  3. Thanksgiving  I hope you all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
  4. Conferences  I have my daughter's parent/teacher conference this week. I'm looking forward to meeting all of her teachers.
  5. Proofreading  I'm still working on proofing the paperback ARC of Better With You, my Ashelyn Drake romance releasing in early 2019.
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

Here's what's on my mind today:

  1. Amazed and completely thankful  I guess it's very fitting for this time of year, but I'm completely blown away by how many people have downloaded my free prequel to the Piper Ashwell Psychic P.I. series. Over 2,000 people have already grabbed A Sight for Psychic Eyes!   
  2. Editing  I'm editing for two clients this week. I'm finishing up one edit and then getting another later in the week.
  3. Revising  I'm still working through revisions on the third book in my Piper Ashwell series so I can get it ready for my editor.
  4. I took a day off!  Something I rarely do is take a day off from editing and writing. Well, last Thursday I took the entire day off. Can you believe it? I felt very refreshed on Friday and got a lot accomplished because of it. Sometimes we need a little break.
  5. Death and Damages  I can't believe this set is releasing soon. That also means the price will go up, so make sure you grab this for only $.99 before that happens. Get your copy here
That's it's for me. What's on your mind today?

Here's what's on my mind today:
  1. New store on my website  I'm now selling my ebooks and merchandise right from my website. You can check out the store here. And to show you what kind of merchandise I have, look at my new travel mug! :) 
  2. Editing  I'm editing for a client again this week.
  3. A Vision A Day Keeps the Killer Away signed paperback ARC giveaway  I have a giveaway running for the entire month of November. You can enter for a chance to win a signed paperback ARC of A Vision A Day Keeps the Killer Away. Enter here
  4. Revising  I'm revising book three in my Piper Ashwell Psychic P.I. series to get it ready for my editor. I really love writing these characters.
  5. Facebook lives  Last week, I did my first Facebook live on my Ashelyn Drake page, and I messed it up so much I was laughing hysterically. For some reason, the filters got all messed up and put me in really weird things, which was appropriate since it was Halloween. If you want a good laugh, watch it here.
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

Monday Mishmash 10/29/18


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 still working through my October edits. Eek! This is what I get for booking extra edits this month.
  2. Halloween Back in August, I mentioned that once August came around, it was suddenly Halloween, and look at that! Halloween is in two days!
  3. Piper Ashwell Psychic P.I. Short  A Sight for Psychic Eyes went up on all retailers. I'm just waiting on Amazon to price match, but here's the gorgeous cover Red Umbrella Graphic Designs made for me. 
    Barnes and Noble: https://bit.ly/2RpbVq3
  4. Facebook Lives  I think I did four live videos on FB last week! I'm spacing them out among my Cozy FB page, my regular author page, my Ashelyn Drake author page, and my profile. (How did I become so many people?)
  5. November  It looks like I'm in for another busy month ahead. I've got client edits and a book release. Wish me luck, please.
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

Monday Mishmash 10/22/18


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. New Cozy Mystery Logo  I have a new author logo for my cozy mysteries! I love it so much. Red Umbrella Graphic Designs did a fantastic job with it. Check it out. 
  2. Editing  I finished a client edit this weekend, and I'm diving into a new one today.
  3. Facebook Lives  I did my first Facebook Live video last week, and I laughed so hard at myself. I couldn't figure out how to turn the video off. Somehow I didn't see the "finish" button at the bottom. I also rolled my eyes at myself on video. Needless to say, I'll be doing more videos because I love to laugh at myself. ;) If you want to see the video, you can view it on my page here.
  4. Piper Ashwell Psychic P.I. Short  I wrote a short prequel to the Piper Ashwell Psychic P.I. series. This is what happens when I gain hours in the workweek. ;) Anyway, A Sight for Psychic Eyes is being edited and will be ready soon! I'll share more details when I have them.
  5. Yes, I'm still writing paranormal  Since I'm launching my cozy mystery brand, I want to address a question that some people have asked me: Will I still write paranormal and romance? The answer to both is yes. Ashelyn Drake isn't going anywhere. She will forever be a romance author. And I will continue to write paranormal because I love it. In fact, my cozy mystery series features a psychic, so technically... If you like subtle hints of paranormal, you might want to give my cozy series a try. If not, that's okay too!
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

Monday Mishmash 10/15/18


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. New FB author page  Since I'm going to be writing cozy mysteries, which are very different than the paranormal novels I usually write, I've created a separate FB author page. If you enjoy cozy mysteries, please follow my page here.
  2. New FB reader group as well  I've also created Kelly's Cozy Corner, a VIP reader group on Facebook. Members will get sneak peeks at covers and excerpts as well as free advanced e-copies of my cozy mysteries. You can request to join here.
  3. A new newsletter too!  If you aren't a paranormal or romance fan, you probably didn't subscribe to my newsletter. But...I now have a cozy mystery newsletter. You'll only get updates about my cozy mysteries. Interested? You can subscribe here.
  4. Editing  I'm editing for a client again this week. October is booked solid for me.
  5. Saying goodbye to a pet  On Friday morning, I discovered our hermit crab had passed away. My daughter was heartbroken, of course. So now we are a one-pet household. My poor daughter has already had to say goodbye to one dog, our cat, and our hermit crab. We're giving Hadley, our lovable German Shepherd/Greyhound mix (or Shephound as I like to say), lots of extra cuddles to help us get through another loss.
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?
