Time once again for: dun, dun, dun... Midweek Mayhem 6/27/12

Working it out…
  • The trailer for Witch Way to Turn is done! Squee! Currently in the process of getting it linked to every website and social media known to man! teeheehee :) Tune back in tomorrow for the BIG REVEAL. So excited!
  • Last Sunday (6/24/12) I participated in Six Sentence Sunday...a really cool site that helps to get the word out about non-published and published writers. The comments and feedback were fantastic and much appreciated!! Check it out: SSS.
Hearing voices…
  • Some crazy things are happening in Rhodhiss, NC for Breena, Myles and Orin! And something very terrible is getting ready to happen to someone Breena loves more than life itself! *gasps*
  • Last Saturday and Sunday were such productive days... I was able to exceed my word count both days! Clearing about 2500. My daily goal is 1,000 words. I don't always hit it, but I reach for it anyway!
Waiting game…
  • Tom Petty had it so right: "waiting IS the hardest part." My demon-slaying unicorn manuscript (Running from Shadows) is currently being read by an amazing agent. *crosses fingers…and toes*
  • The lovely agent has had the manuscript (MS) for 4 weeks on 6/29/12. I'm hoping that's a good sign! Will keep you posted.
  • In the meantime, I am beginning to query other agencies for Running from Shadows and will have two pitch sessions at RWA Nationals in July.
  • Side note - a pitch session is like American Idol for writing meets Speed Dating. It's fast-paced, intense, nerve-wrecking and FUN. (Okay, so fun might be a stretch...but it's something I am getting better at. lol)
Reading update…
  • 58% into Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse #12) by Charlaine Harris
  • 27% into Rapture (Fallen #4) by Lauren Kate
  • 21% into Quitter: Turning Your Job into a Dream and Your Dream into a Job by Jon Acuff 
 Getting personal...
  • Am planning a surprise 29th birthday getaway for the hubs (my husband)! I'm practically kidnapping him. Bwahaha He has no idea where we are going or what we are doing. I'm just gonna tell him to get in the car and I'm driving!
  • Am beginning to like Swiss cheese. I didn't for the longest time. Then had a club sandwich the other day and didn't know it had Swiss on it. Well, it was delicious! Sooo, there ya go! Weren't you just dying to know that? ;) 
Giving back...
  • Recently I've gotten emails about the writing/editing process, social media usage and self-promotion. I'd love to share experience, challenges and offer any advice.
  • Would like to reach out to you... Is there anything in particular that would be a helpful blog post? Ideas? Hit me up in the comments section or on the Contact Me tab with your suggestions.
That’s all for now y’all!

Happy Writing!


  1. Nice update. Good luck on the agent. I remember how nerve wracking waiting was. Have fun this weekend. My husband gets here tomorrow.

    1. Thanks so much! It really is nerve wracking... I'm checking my email like every 30 minutes but hoping for "the call." teehee ;) The right thing will work out though. I just need to have more patience. Sigh. Hooray for your hubsy coming home!! You have a fantastic weekend too! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!
