1. Enter to win one of many great prizes, including a Coach Bag as the grand prize in Reading Renee’s September Debut Author Spotlight giveaway. Yes, a signed book from me is one of the prizes πŸ™‚ http://readingrenee.com/2013/09/02/special-debut-author-spotlight-giveaway/

Seriously, if you are a reader and you don’t follow Renee for book tips, you’re missing out. She is really the bomb.

2. Can’t get enough of me yapping on TV? Here’s a new one for you from last week on Great Day Houston (KHOU), talking about PMS. Yes, PMS. Blog subscribers, you may need to visit this post online to view the video, as I don’t think it comes through in the email. Just click on the title of this post at the top of this email to get to the post online.

3. September is blog tour month for Leaving Annalise! I’ll be sending links in posts so you can visit the blogs, leave comments, and enter contests. Thanks for your support! And nothing means more than a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. Day 1 is at I’m Shelfish. Read what I had to say about inspiration and why I wrote Leaving Annalise, HERE.

4. Next week I am in Midland delivering a speech on the Americans with Disabilities Act at the Annual Conference for the Permian Basin Human Resource Professionals, followed by Saving Grace in 60 Days: Tips and Tales from the Indie Author Road at the Midland Centennial Library, and then a book signing at Barnes and Noble. Sweet!


5. My beta team is hard at work on Katie & Annalise #3, and graphic artist Heidi Dorey is working on the cover. We are all set for a February release!

6. The workshop for the Houston Writers Guild on Indie Publishing was a big success. We had 50 people and sold 30 books. Reviews on Loser are starting to appear on Amazon!

7. As of September 1st, yours truly became El Presidente of the Houston Writers Guild. Hold me. I think I just over committed myself again. First order of business: member survey and website revamp, complete with webinar of my Indie Publishing training.

8. Total coolness: it never gets old to receive good reviews or emails or Facebook messages. Never. I’ve had a steady stream from the blog tour this summer. This one touched me in a special way (click to enlarge, use back to return):

Why? Because, after all our difficulty with Barnes and Noble, this is from a Barnes and Noble store managers in some locations, this is from a Barnes and Noble employee. How sweet it is.

9. And, finally, a funny. We spent the weekend in Nowheresville, where it was approximately 120 degrees in the shade. Our goat Lucy is due to kid (give birth) any day now, but she chose not to do it while we were there. Rats. So we contented ourselves with other projects. Me: FINANCES. I must be PMS’ing to tackle that monstrosity after 4 months away and a book tour to account for and our new HWG venture. Eric: replaced the floor in the Quacker where it had grown soft and shucked its supports. He did a fabulous job. Buoyed by his success, he decided to switch out our smaller TV for the hand-me-down TV from the Bookmobile. Lovingly, he uninstalled ours, customized the space for the new TV, and installed it. One problem, though: the hand-me-down TV didn’t work. It was completely broken. So . . . Eric un-installed it and re-installed the original TV. He was heartbroken, but kept a smile on his face. I promised not to blog about it. I feel like I lived up to that promise, since I just tacked this on at the end of this post instead of devoting a whole post to the drama. I’m sure he’ll agree.

Back at ya soon,

  1. Hee, hee, hee – oh yeah, I am SO sure he will agree with you that you didn’t blog about that TV – then again, you could have gone into great detail so maybe you’re right. Then again again, that will be all I remember about this post, that he had that happen. Oh OK, I will remember all the cool links, too. I’m off to check them out!
