Giveaway Winner and Midweek Mayhem for 7/11/12...

Working it out…
  • The past few days have been all about lining things up for Witch Way to Turn promotion...cos the release is only 25 days away!! Squee!
  • I've signed up with Bewitching Book Tours to handle publicity for the release. So excited! There will be a live Twitter party and radio interviews and a blog tour... Oh my!
  • I've entered my demon-slaying unicorn story (Running From Shadows) into two contests...super pumped! They are: Heart of the West and Heartland Romance Authors.
  • For Six Sentence Sunday I'll be introducing you to Running From Shadows... Excited!! There will even be cover art! Prepare yourselves cos it's freakin' sa-weet!
Hearing voices…
  • Am pluggin' away on the sequel to Witch Way to Turn. Current word count is a little over 33,000 words!
  • Things are going from complicated to completely and utterly messed up for Breena...she just learned something this week that truly *is* a matter of life or death. Eep!
  • Here's a little teaser from book #2 I'm super happy with (don't worry, no spoilers to book #1 or #2)... Seconds clicked by, but this time instead of the feel of shattering like an ice sculpture...it was as if Breena was watching a kaleidoscope of light and brilliant color reflect off herself onto Orin and break apart. She orchestrated this chaos and could easily mend it.
Waiting game…
  • On week #6 of waiting to hear back from an amazing agent who is reading Running From Shadows.*continues to keep fingers and toes crossed* 
  • The owner of the amazing literary agency started following me on Twitter last week...not sure what that means, but--omigosh--I nearly fell out with excitement! :D
Reading update…
  • 58% into Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse #12) by Charlaine Harris
  • 38% 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 
  • Note: I don't devour books... I savor them. *does slow motion - nomnomnom* Sooo it takes me a hot few minutes to finish a book. Plus, the 40-hour a week job, writing passion and family do keep me a little sidetracked ;)

Drum Roll, Please...
