Busy week ahead and Monday Musings at MEA!

I had a nice relaxing weekend. Didn't do much and it was bloody hot out, but I still had fun :) I mostly stayed off the computer, but did participate in DeLurker weekend at Romace Junkies. They had the largest turnout ever and I ended up having way too much fun to not stick around. It was great to see a bunch of new readers come out and say hi and they asked some great questions. I can't wait for the next one.

I've been writing up my TO DO THIS WEEK list, and if I still have hair by the end of this week, I'll be surprised. It's going to be crazy busy. The fact that I woke up this morning at 4am and got right to work seriously confirms that feeling.

Please stop by the Moonglade Elite Authors blog today, where I'll be posting my first MEA blog :) Every monday you can chat it up with me, and you better believe I'm going to have goodies to give away!

Also this week I have 2 new releases, yay! Melting Iron from Samhain Publishing and Butterfly Kisses from Cobblestone Press. I'm so proud of both these stories :) Also, be sure to look for some great contests to go along with both of these books! More info later this week.

Tuesday I'll be posting at Novelspotters about Melting Iron, so if you'd like to pop in and read some excerpts, please do. Many authors from Samhain will be there and I'll be breezing in around 5pm EST. Hope to see you there!

I'd like to ignore Thursday since I have a dentist appointment. Granted, it's only a cleaning...but I'm not a fan of dentists. Huh-uh, no way. *shudders*

Friday I'll be doing double duty with a chat at Cobblestone Press to celebrate the release of Butterfly Kisses, and also a chat at Silk's Vault for Vampire genre day. I'll be talking about Vampire Hunter: Book 1 - Vintages and Night of the Nogitsune: Book 1 - Wanted.

Add to that newsletters, writing, editing, promoting, updating, and my personal life and whoa baby...I'm going to need to clone myself several times over! Okay, and I should do some cleaning, vacuum the carpet, and of course hang with my son. Somewhere in there I will schedule a little 'me' time, lol.

Hmm, it's only 5:45 and the birds are singing their morning songs. Guess I'll get started on my day.

Your day sounds like mine Ann. Busy, but that is the way I like it. Congrats on those two new releases getting ready to hit Cyberspace. I know they will be wonderful reads! Can't wait!

As for me, I took the weekend off to celebrate my Birtday. Now it is back to work. I did do some more artwork that I have placed on my website. Check it out if you get a second, and let me know what you think. Now, back to working on Sweet Petunia, my current WIP and edits for Rain Drops Keep Falling on my Dead. Have a good one!

Good afternoon Ann. My morning started around 10:15 a.m. when I finally got up My husband and I don't make to bed until 3:00a.m. every morning. The dogs do get me up early to let them out. I work afternoons and don't get off until 1:00a.m. so I miss alot of the chats that you all have. Is the chat at Cobblestone Press just for authors or are readers invited too.

Ann Cory said...

Hi Sara :) I've never liked teh dentist. One dentist was actually decent...I went to him for an emergency tooth fix because his slogan in the yellow pages was "we cater to cowards" and everyone was really nice to me. Still, the scary instruments, loud noises, EEK! I'm getting a sonic clean, never had one before, so the unknown at a dentist office is even more freaky!!! lol

Ann Cory said...

Hi Emery!! *bows down* Thank you hon, I totally need to be reminded to take a moment every now and then. I get overwhelmed easily, lol.
I hope all is going well with your steamy writing, and thanks for popping in here to say hi!
(hugs)
