My Midweek Mayhem for 9/12/12 and a Random Picture... #amblogging

Happy Midweek Y'all!

Working it out…
  • Squee!!!!!! Witch Way to Turn has Sizzling Read promo this month...check out my interview here and steamy excerpt here.
  • I received the most fantastic email from a book club in Arkansas, they are loving Witch Way and discuss it every Friday night. How cool is that!?! They want Witch Way swag! I'm so excited to send them stuff!! :D
  • Will find out on September 15th if Running From Shadows made it into the agent round of the Come and Get It contest. *crosses fingers*
Hearing voices…
  • Currently I'm working on a yet-to-be-named alien sci-fi novella. I'm writing it in 1st person point of view in the present tense. The verb tense is very different for me. I'm so in love with my characters already! (Side note--if you are reading this and know about my grim reaper story...never fear! hahahahaha I swear I didn't mean to just type that pun!!!!! *rolls on floor laughing* Anyway, I plan to work on reaper story for NaNoWriMo.) 
  • Starting Witch Way book #2 revisions this weekend!
  • Here's a teaser from book #2 I'm super happy with (as always, no spoilers to book #1 or #2).
  • Yes, she would do this. Of her own accord. Not because she’d fallen. She’d often thought about jumping into the lake from her dam before…fear had held her back. Fear of heights, the unknown, death. Those things didn’t register right now. None of it did. She needed energy. Freedom. And she would take it from her lake. The wet caress of waves around her would comfort her. Had to.

Waiting game…

  • On week #14 of waiting to hear back from a lovely agent who is reading Running From Shadows.*continues to keep fingers and toes crossed and keeps querying*
  • On week #6 of waiting to hear back from the two agents and editor from the RWA conference. *also continues to keep all possible body parts crossed*
  • Am currently reading Keir by Pippa Jay (romance/science fiction)! Powerful and emotional read so far! Outcast. Cursed. Dying. Is Keir beyond redemption?
