Good Monday Everyone!
Sorry I'm late. Had Blogger problems this morning, but now it seems to be working. Fingers crossed that continues.
How was your week and weekend? Did you do anything fun you want to share? What about great reads? What fabulous books are you recommending for us today? I have a recommend! Over the weekend, I read A Little Bit Wicked by Victoria Dahl and really enjoyed it. Fun, witty and different!
Last week was another eclectic kind of week for me. Lots of promo preparation. And then the inevitable and necessary staring into space. Planning what I'm going to write next is both frustrating and fun. As soon as something appears in my mind, little devious doubt demons attack with: That's silly, that's stupid, that's been done a 1000 times. Man, I hate those little creatures! (:
Did you notice that we are only 42 days away from the release of SWEET JUSTICE? Yahooooooooo! I'm so excited about that. I can't wait for you to read Seth and Honor's story. I do believe the SWEET books are my best LCR books yet (and yes, I may be a little prejudiced) but I've had several early readers tell me the same thing too. Hopefully you'll feel the same way!
With the release coming closer, I wanted to give you a heads-up that prizes and contests are coming your way. Since SWEET JUSTICE and SWEET REVENGE release so close together, I thought it'd be cool to have a giveaway everyday from September 6 (SWEET JUSTICE release) to September 27 (SWEET REVENGE release). That's more than 3 weeks of giveaways! With all the books I brought back from conference, I'm well stocked with prizes and ready to have some fun!
Did you notice the excerpt of SWEET REVENGE is now up? It's the full prologue and gives you insight not only into Jamie and Dylan's characters but also what they might be facing. Hope you'll give it a read and let me know what you think!
Now, on to something kind of serious. I need your honest feedback, either here or you can email your thoughts to email@example.com. Are you happy with Recommend Monday? I know for a few weeks I wasn't able to respond to all comments and I'm not saying that's not going to happen again. When I'm writing and on deadline, everything gets put on hold until I finish. And honestly, I figure you guys would rather me be writing...At least I hope you want me to write. (:
But do you want to continue with Recommend Monday? Though Monday is still the most visited day on this blog, our comments have slacked off considerably. For those of you who come by every week, let me say a huge THANK YOU! You've made Recommend Monday and I sincerely appreciate you. We've had so many wonderful recommendations! I love getting input and suggestions for great books, but I also want to make sure you're getting what you want. So, tell me, should we stick with Recommend Monday or do you have another suggestion? Would you want it on a different day? Would you want a chance to guest host and chat about your recommendation? What would make this blog better for you? I'm all ears! (That saying has always seemed strange to me, but you know what I mean) (:
Don't forget that tomorrow is our continuing countdown to the release of SWEET JUSTICE with our discussion of SECOND CHANCE--a favorite for many of you and the most requested LCR story, because of a certain guy named Cole. We'll start around 10:00 AM, so come on by and let's chat about Cole, Keeley and all those evil people in Fairview!
Okay, that's it for me. I'm headed to do some major thinking, dreaming and hopefully writing. And, if you'll recommend a great read for me, I might just do some reading too. So tell us, what great books are you recommending today?
