News, Updates, The Works

Writing Status -- Working on Newsletter

Playing on itunes -- nada

I'm working on the news page for my website and realized there is a LOT of stuff going on the next few months. I have a couple of releases, some chats, blog visits, etc. As I got going, I realized that I can't cram that much information into a news page on the site once per month.  It's too difficult, and I'm bound to miss something.  So, after thinking it over, I created a yahoo author page.

I plan on keeping excerpts, sample chapters, etc on the loop, so if you're interested, come on over and join me.  It's in the beginning stages right now, but I hope to have it looking good by next week.

Speaking of...

Don't forget to drop by the Long and Short of It loop HERE as well as the Whipped Cream loop HERE to register for their annual author and reader weekend (it takes place on a yahoo loop, which is super easy to register on).  They are having a huge author/reading chat fest and will be giving out prizes galore, including books, the chance at a Nook, and gift cards. As a bonus, Long and Short of It and Whipped Cream also give away tour packages for authors seeking promotion. Last year they gave away book tours, dates for their author spotlights, and many other things.  So if you enjoy chatting with authors (you can find a list of who is visiting HERE) be sure to stop by and say hello!

My chats are scheduled for 6:00pm EST for J.A. Saare (will be discussing Crimson Moon and Dead, Undead, or Somewhere in Between) at the Long and Short of It group, and 7:00pm EST for Aline Hunter (discussing Eternity and a Day) at the Whipped Cream group.  I'm going to be giving away gift cards to Amazon.com and might toss in a couple of PDF's, so don't miss out. I hope to see you there!

I'm off to get some work done.  Hope you all have a safe and enjoyable weekend.

Wow, you do sound busy with lots going on. This book writing business is time consuming, no?

I understand having so much going on you're not sure where to fit it.
Will definitely check out your group, Jaime. Keep up the amazing work!!
