First Monday in May

loldog Monday Pup2There’s nothing special about this day. But I have lots of randomness to share. First, I had a really laid back–mostly–weekend. Ended up going with Lawyer Guy for his HAM radio club siren test (first Saturday of each month to test the storm sirens in Edmond), so we could meet Only and Stormageddon for lunch. Mexican food. YUM! After lunch, Storm and I headed to his momma and daddy’s house to play with Dozer, the Dog of Doom, and watch baseball while Only and LG headed out to some big antique flea market thingy, with a side dish of neighborhood garage sales. Mainly, she wanted some adult time and she and her dad have fun together.

Sunday, I got the .pdf review copy of NIGHT SHIFT formatted. It’ll be ready for the print version soon, too. I’ll keep y’all posted.

I’m “appearing” a few places this week. Today, NIGHT SHIFT and a few of my other books are being featured on Siobhan Muir’s BOOK GRATITUDE BLOG as Author of the Week. Click the link and go see the answer to my interview question.

Tomorrow, I’ll be on the Smart Bitches blog with a HABO (Help a Bitch Out). I’m looking for a book and hoping the bitchery can help me remember/find the title. The link to the site is over there on the right, in my Place We Go links.

Saturday, I’ll be appearing in person for a book signing at the Addie Long Community Library in Mountain View, Oklahoma. On the way home, we’re going to stop for burgers at Meers, Oklahoma before we meander through the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge so Only can photograph the scenery and wildlife.

In other news, THE COWGIRL’S LITTLE SECRET is on a special 50% off sale at the Harlequin website until May 10th. If you haven’t bought your copy (I mean, seriously?) or you know someone who would enjoy the book, you can share this coupon code: MYRD3. Just click on the code to go to the buy page at Harlequin!

Reading: Started a new/old series. New to me but has been out awhile. It’s the Dragonkind series by Coreene Callahan. Dragon shifters–good guys vs. rogues, and the women meant to mate them. It’s been fun so far. First book in the series is FURY OF FIRE. I’m currently reading #2, FURY OF ICE.

Didn’t get much writing done on DOUBLE CROSS but I have hopes for lots of words spewing forth this week. I’m shooting for a July 1, 2015 release date. I’m also toying with the idea of doing a pre-order for it. What about y’all? What kept you occupied this weekend?

  1. Busy lady. Good for you. Squee for getting the Night Shift hardcopy ready and for a July release date on Double Cross! You can do it! Yay for Storm time and for a book signing and for being on Smart Bitches!

    I feel like I didn’t do anything this weekend, but I know I did. Saturday I stopped at the local bookstore and chatted with the owner for a good long time. She’s pretty neat. I did some editing work on Bloodflow, did some marketing stuff, dropped the price of Dying Embers to 99 cents, dead-headed the irises, pulled some weeds, went fishing… I’m waiting on the final round of edits for Accidental Death – which is two weeks from launching. :shudder: Oh, I secured the cover artist for Wish in One Hand, but I think that was last week, not the weekend. Ugh, it all blurs together.

      Sometimes we just need to veg–and forget what all we’ve done. I count that as a good thing! Can’t wait to see the cover for WIOH and yay for ACCIDENTAL DEATH!

    Wow, you’re all over the place this week! That’s a good thing!

    I dropped price of Fuel to .99 and gearing up for release of Wreck Thursday. Hoping for great things. In meantime trying to figure out schedule on DS #4 (#3 is done and is a short). It’s boggling my brain. I need to write faster/more. Finding promo takes up a ton of time. Its like a vacuum and sucks the life right out of you!

    Speaking of…. I need to go do some more. o.O

    • Silver James says:

      BOOK SALES! I tweeted and FB’d both you and B.E. Can’t wait for WRECK. Thursday can’t get here fast enough! 😆 I hate promo and marketing. I really need to do more but I so totally suck at it. 😦

Got something to say?
