Four days to go until the big book release everybody! To celebrate, I’m going to do a giveaway of my book! If you’d like to win a free digital copy of my book (remember, the print version doesn’t release until December!), please use the “contact me” form to send me your name and email address, along with a message that says something like “contest entry”. All entries must be received by September 13th, 11:59 pm Central Standard Time. I’ll announce the winner either Friday the 14th or Monday the 17th.
Also, I’m thinking of holding a critique contest at the end of September (if I finish my revisions!). I’d critique ten pages, about 2,500 words, of the winner’s manuscript. Would anyone be interested in that?
In other news, I’ve been plugging along, just trying to keep my head above water. We’re in the middle of potty training our son, and let me tell you it’s a LOT of work. I’m in the 26th week of my pregnancy, and I’m trying to keep our house spick and span, because it’s for sale. My husband has a new job this summer and is working 12-14 hour days. I’m crazy busy doing publicity for my book, and working frantically on revising my second book for my agent. I’ve decided to take your advice, my dear readers. If I don’t have my revisions done by September the 18th, I’m going to break down and ask my parents to come stay and help me. It turns out, I’m NOT Super Woman, and I CAN’T do everything myself! 🙂 Who knew!?!?
I also wanted to send a mass apology to all of you readers who have left comments and emails for me. I’m sorry I haven’t gotten back to them. It’s not because I don’t appreciate and love you all. It’s because I often find myself asleep with my head on my desk, with no idea how it got there! I do plan on trying to answer some of them over the next few days…
No rest for the weary! I’m off to do some more work. Have a beautiful day everyone!
