Birthday Giveaway! Win an ARC of Incarnate 3
Category Archives: news
Wow, there were a few weeks of no blogging in there. Sorry!
I’ve been super busy, though. I got — and turned in — copyedits for Incarnate 3. I got the cover comp for IN3. I went to California with a couple of authors you might know. And I came home and immediately fell to the PLAGUE.
Slowing down: On March 11, I flew to L.A. where I met up with Cynthia Hand and Brodi Ashton. We had a great week!
We spoke to Cynthia’s class at the gorgeous Pepperdine University.
Guess what I wanted to be when I grew up, before I went with writer.
Early Saturday morning, we flew north for our event at Books Inc. Mountain View. We took a quick tour at the Sarah Winchester Mystery House (super creepy), then relaxed until it was time for the event — which was fantastic! I got to meet even more readers, bloggers, and friends! The staff there was so friendly and together. It was an amazing evening and I definitely want to go back to this store.
The next day, we parted ways. I spent time with one of my best friends, Christine. She took me to the Monterey Bay Aquarium!
My flight back home was an overnight one. I’d planned on sleeping most of the way, but that didn’t happen, unfortunately, and we were late to my connection, my next flight was delayed, delayed again, and then canceled. I didn’t make it home until a few hours after I’d planned, and by then I was exhausted.
Copyedits were due a couple of days after I returned. Fortunately I’d been working on them on my iPad during the trip. I just had to make the changes in the real document. Which involved staying awake. By then I knew I had the plague, but I pushed through and turned in everything on time.
Then I slept for four days. It was great.
(Okay, I didn’t sleep the whole time. I watched an embarrassing amount of GLEE — I like it when they sing — and read FINGERPRINTS OF YOU by Kristen-Paige Madonia (loved it!) and finished knitting a sock.)
And that’s my last few weeks.
How have you been?
Don’t forget about my ASUNDER Reviewer Appreciation Giveaway. This is the last pair of fingerless mitts I’ll be giving away for quite a while, so if you’ve been coveting my handknit mitts, here’s your chance!
