Mush Brain Can't Think of a Post Title

I love having all these guest spots on my blog, but not journalling as things happen for me is hard. What have I shared and what have I not shared?

Plus my memory is a lot like this...
Over the weekend I got an updated version of my cover. It's been lightened and the city has more detail.
LOVE, love, LOVE it!

The other big news is that I have the best hubby EVER. He's making me fly to Charlotte, NC for a book release party even though I've assured him that isn't necessary. As we've talked about what I wanted to do to celebrate The Magic Wakes being set free in the world he figured the best place to do that would be our home of the last 6 and 1/2 years. That's where I wrote the story. That's where I gained the confidence to tell people I was a writer. That's where my real life support group is (well most of them).

The cost of the whole thing makes me feel a bit guilty, and I'm sad that my family won't be with me, but I know when it's all said and done I'll be glad I went. I think hubby knows that even better than me. Plus he doesn't want to be the reason I didn't get a kickin' party.

Can you believe my blog tour starts next week? That means my book will be loose in the world in 3 weeks!

Writing has been non-existent the last two weeks. For some reason I'm just too exhausted and well, down. Must be the lack of sunshine. And the fact that I'm getting farther behind on my to-do list. I have several books that I need to write up the reviews for and 2 manuscripts I've been asked to critique.

And you know what I do when I feel behind? I bury myself in a favorite book. Yesterday I read all of The Host instead of doing anything else. I always start in the caves and then breeze through it. I should have taken a nap instead. ;)

Anyway, my hubby shared this video with us last night and I'm passing it on to you.



  1. Cover is spectacular!
    Go to Charlotte and enjoy your release party. You'll feel better than if you stayed at home with no party.

  2. Completely agree with what Alex J Cavanaugh said. Go and enjoy. You'll kick yourself later if you don't. And your cover is stunning.

  3. I'm so excited for you and your book! And it's awesome your hubby is sending you to NC! *hugs*

  4. Wow! I love the cover - it is such an eye-magnet. I hope you go and revel in the party. The first time only happens once.

  5. OMGoodness! It's almost HERE!!! How do you stand the excitement? I am bouncing around like a kid on Christmas morning!!!!!!
    YOU must be in the stratosphere!!!

  6. Thanks everyone! I am really excited.

    I bought my plane ticket today and now I'm getting excited. The sad part is I'm mailing my box of books to my friends house so I won't see them until the 22nd. *headdesk* I will get a smaller box of ARCs at my house sometime this weekend. I'm ready to do this. I even sent the Savvy post off today and am just hoping for the best. LOL.

    Huntress, just think 6-8 months and you'll be in the same place!

  7. That's great. Try to enjoy and not let the guilty suck the fun out of it.
