Let the Midweek Mayhem begin for 7/4/12...

Working it out…
  • The trailer for Witch Way to Turn was a BIG success! Squee! So thankful for all your comments :)
  • I've decided to make Six Sentence Sunday a regular blog post. It's awesome to see other writers work and to get feedback on your own! Check it out: SSS.
  • Am working on my pitch of Running From Shadows (demon-slaying unicorn story) for RWA Nationals in July. More to come.
  • My website is finished!!! Thanks to my cousin's hubsy...A.K.A the IT Guru! Take a peek: www.karenbynum.com
Hearing voices…
  • The sequel to Witch Way to Turn is coming along nicely. Current word count is a little over 26,000 words! Right now Breena is in a world of trouble... Poor girl! 
  • Here's a little teaser line I'm super pleased with... (It has nothing to do with the trouble Breena's in tho. Just a little smoochy action. teeehee) His kisses were as gentle as a butterfly's wing fluttering against her neck. (Now don't ya wanna know which guy? The vampire or the preternatural? *sing-song voice* I'll never tell.)
  • WWTT #2 is gettin' pretty heated! LOL I can't help it... Breena wants what she wants ;) 
  • Today I'll be writing at my fave local coffee shop! Le sigh.

Waiting game…
  • On week #5 of waiting to hear back from an amazing agent who is reading Running from Shadows.*continues to keep fingers and toes crossed*
  • In the meantime, I'm querying other agencies for RFS and will have two pitch sessions at RWA Nationals in July.
Reading update…
  • 58% into Deadlocked (Sookie Stackhouse #12) by Charlaine Harris
  • 33% 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...
  • Happy 4th of July for my US readers!! *shoots off fireworks from the writing cave*
  • The surprise b-day getaway for the hubs was awesome! He was totally surprised. We toured Red Oak Brewery in Whitsett, NC...his fave beer! Then we stayed in a beautiful historic Bed & Breakfast.

Pix from the getaway...
Hey, you can add captions to these pix...that's freakin' sweet!

Honestly can't remember which one of us took this pic. Hm.

The balcony in the middle was ours!

I thought taking the picture at an angle would be all artistic. Whaddya think?

Contest alert... Friday I'll be participating in another Giveaway Blog Hop!! Stop by and enter for a chance to win!!

That’s all for now y’all!

Happy Writing!


  1. Looks like you had a great time. I am so glad. The bed and breakfast looks like a beautiful place. So glad that you were able to keep the trip a surprise from Michael. Happy Birthday tomorrow to Mickey! The sequel to WWTT is sounding great - hard to wait!!!!!! Loved the teaser line!!! :)

    1. The b&b was super nice! Really old French style home with 6 or 7 bedrooms, a huge dining room, full service kitchen and they do weddings too. Loved it! We had a great time :) Aww, thank you for saying that about the WWTT sequel!! I want to share more, but y'all gotta find out what happens in book #1 first! LOL Come on August 6...get here!! :D
