Bits & Ends: Cover Reveal Winners Coming Soon, A Cruise, Where Do I need to Be, and How Behind Am I?
First and foremost, thank you to everyone who took part in my Cover Reveal Scavenger Hunt!
Thank you, Vic, my awesome cover artist!
Thank you, Del, for making my website reflect The Kelpie perfectly!
And thank ALL OF YOU who spread the word and took part in the hunt!
Now, the hard part: the balance of believing December isn’t that far away for the release…and knowing how much work I have to do in this year that’s moving too fast, anyway!
If you had fun with our Cover Reveal Scavenger Hunt, you’ve really got to check out this latest promotion from Spencer Hill Press for another of my fabulous authors, Kimberly Ann Miller, for her debut novel: Triangles.
WIN A FRIKKIN’ CRUISE!
Seriously! Here are the details: http://www.site.spencerhillpress.com/Triangles_Sweepstakes.html
And because you ought to know what this awesome book is about, here’s the back copy:
A cruise ship. A beautiful island. Two sexy guys. What could possibly go wrong?
In the Bermuda Triangle—a lot.
Hoping to leave behind the reminders of her crappy life–her father’s death years ago, her mother’s medical problems, and the loser who’s practically stalking her–seventeen-year-old Autumn Taylor hops on a ship with her sister for a little distraction. When she wakes up in the Bermuda Triangle, she fears she’s gone nuts for more than one reason: that loser’s suddenly claiming they’re a happy couple… a hot guy is wrapping his arms around her and saying “Happy Anniversary”… and suddenly, she’s full of bruises, losing her hair, and getting IV medication. Autumn visits the ship’s doctor, hoping for a pill or a shot to make the craziness go away. Instead, she’s warned that these “alternate realities” could become permanent.
She just has to ask herself one question—how the hell is she going to get out of this mess?
Travel. I haz some lined up, y’all!

And then, the very next day…
Friday, April 19th, I’m reading specifically horror poetry back at Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester!
The following Saturday and Sunday include me prepping and riding with Calico for our Second Official Horse Show Evars!! Yaaaaayyy!! *cue Kermit hopping and hand waving* Let’s hope I don’t fall onto another mounting block and crack a few more ribs, right?
After that, I’ve got guests and a Big Arse OMGWTFBBQ Birthday Bash to throw, which includes some of my top tier horrors: housecleaning. Yeah.
(Then, should all go well, I will arrive home and promptly collapse and call in half-dead for a full week to recover.)
And what else might I be doing? Because I am doing more stuff, yes indeedy! And that stuff is:
Finish First Round Edits for three of my SHP editors who I adore and love.
Get the last bits of Doorways to Extra Time done and sent to Anthony so we can submit it to a copyeditor.
Get Volunteer stuff squared away for Broad Universe.
Do a galley’s Edit on another beloved author’s novel.
Finish The Earl’s Childe draft.
Edit another of my novels per editorial comments.
…And I’m sure there’s more, but those are the “looming closest” items.
What am I waiting for, you ask? Um…well, I’m writing this blog thing. And. Erp… Bye!
