When I lived in the Northeast, I asked for soda.
When I lived in Atlanta, I asked for a Coke (then I specified which kind)
Now I live in the Midwest, and I ask for a POP!
Anyway, how've you been? What's new? What's POPPING! Ha ha.
Well, my book launch party Saturday was a complete, ravingly insanse success!! I will be posting pictures and more info on my facebook author page when I get them from my photographer - my neighbor volunteer! (need to get some use out of it, been slacking) The best parts - I got to meet Sherry Ellis, fellow blogger who was in the middle of moving, and... my sister surprised me and drove up all the way from Mississippi!! INCREDIBLE WEEKEND!
Well, I haven't given you all the low-down on news or blog hops for a while, so here's what's going on!
First! Awesome friend CD Coffelt's book, The Wilder Mage is coming out August 30! And here is her electrifying cover!!
A hotter commodity than he realizes, Justus Aubre is a wilder, hunted by the Imperium Mages, who can't control his power. He's been hidden for many years, until Sable Rounds walks through the door of his antique shop, looking for work.
Also on the run from the Imperium, Sable longs for somewhere to belong, which she finds with Justus, who she unwittingly puts in danger. When the Imperium finds Sable, they find Justus. And all hell’s about to break loose.
Pretty intense, right?! I can't wait to read it!
Now, for the blogfest news:
- Aug 1-8 -- Charmaine Clancy is hosting the Imagination Sparks blogfest - she is challenging us to challenge each other with writing exercises for us all to try! Check it out! (I found this at Denise Covey's blog =)
- Sept 9-15 -- Christine Rains and Cecilia Robert want you romance writers to post a kissing scene for the More Than Just a Kiss Blogfest. I am not good at those, but more power to those who can make us feel it!
- But let me say how excited I am about Klahanie's NON-BLOG HOP or the Amazing Anti-Blogfest! A host of hosts will judge entries of PG-13 blogfest titles that should never be! Hilarious! And Mark wrote some awesome examples!
On Thursday, I will announce the winners of my July blog tour giveaway and forward some awards. What a month it's been!!
