End of summer whirlwind

Yikes there's a lot going on this week! And I'll have some giveaways you won't want to miss :)


Today through August 31, I'll be participating in the TRS Summer Bash, along with hundreds of other authors. It's always a crazy, fun time, with lots of goodies for readers. I'm giving away an ebook of my contemporary rock 'n roll romance novel, Rock Bottom. So I hope you'll pop over this week and join the party!

Today I also have a fun interview at the lovely Juliette Cross' blog: http://www.juliettecross.com/blog  Pop on over and say hey if you have a sec :)

Another day, another party!
On Tuesday, I'll be over at Long and Short Reviews to help them celebrate their 7th anniversary! Woot! Congrats to LASR, and wishing them many more years. They've been wonderful to me since I was first published in 2009, and I'm so happy to be part of this event.

No party's complete without presents, so I'll be giving away a $10 gift card to one commenter.

Be sure to visit! 

Wednesday guest
On Wednesday I'll have a special guest here too - Brynna Curry will be Spillin' the Beans and sharing about her cool Elemental Magic series.


Sharpen your story
Last year, I took Margie Lawson's online class, Story Structure Safari. I had just started the Goddess Connection novel and wanted help with mapping out the story. The instructor, Lisa Miller, was awesome. Her feedback was insightful and prodded me to delve deeper into my heroine as well as the story line. Although this story took me a year and a half to finish writing, all my stories have benefitted because of this class.

If you've thought about signing up for a class, I strongly recommend this one. And you're in luck - there are still a few spaces open for the September one! So hurry and sign up now.Your future self will thank you. And I'm thanking Lisa because my editor loved the story! I'm working on a few tweaks and will send the revised to her soon, hopefully this week.


Out with the old!
You may have noticed I've been cleaning up the blog. Streamlining a bit, gathering up various things into a more logical order. I eliminated most of the badges on the right - they were so cluttered, even I couldn't find what I needed. They're all nice and tidy and organized on the new page, Follow the Magic... appearing at the top of the page just below the header. Check it out! Click around! And let me know how you like it?

Branching out
Because I'm not on enough social media sites that I don't know how to use, I joined WattPad. For the past few weeks, I've been adding chapters to two stories - Surfacing and Romancing the Hero. You can check them out here. All feedback welcome!

So what's going on in your world? Have much going on this week? Are you ready for the end of summer? (I'm not!)

Aw thanks Angela. You are too! I am always amazed by working moms who manage to write. I could never find much time while my kids were growing up.

Thanks Alex!
