TGIF and Chat-filled Weekend News!

All this week I've thought it was a very, very long Monday, and come to find out it's Friday! Four days snuck right on sneaky.

Today is my brother's b-day. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BIG BROTHER!! *blows party horn and throws cake* Ahem. Not like I expect that he'll read my blog, but who knows. As my big brother he looks in on me from time to time.

Today no matter what I need to finish up my edits for Under a Warlock's Spell. I've been sidetracked all week. No more excuses!

Don't forget - I'm putting together a recipe book with goodies from writers/readers/anyone who wants to participate - and fixing it up into a fun PDF. I still need more recipes, so if you have one, send it to and put RECIPE in the subject line. It can be a drink, appetizer, dessert, whatever. I will send one out to everyone and also post it in my Mind Candy section where I do recipes.

This weekend I have 2 very special chats with the Moonglade Elite Authors. We'll be discussing our books, joking around, giving out prizes, and answering any questions you throw at us. The weekend chat schedule is:
Saturday - Sensual Reads and Reviews 8pm EST. Once you click to the site you scroll down a little and it says ENTER HERE and it takes you right to the chat room.
Sunday - Pink Posse 7pm EST. We'll be chatting at their chat room.
Yep, that's right - no Yahoo delays to frustrate anyone, we're talking live :)
Hope you can join us for one of them - we'd sure be happy to have you!

Not sure what our weekend plans are. There's a fair going on all weekend, plus Saturday market, and of course our regular errands. I haven't heard what the weather is going to be either. We're making plans for a Christmas Vacation this year. I haven't had much time to scope out the net for some nice ideas, but hopefully next week I can do that.

Question of the day: Other than free books, what are your favorite kinds of prizes to win? Gift certificates? Gift baskets? Tote bags? An assortments of stuff? Perfume? Jewelry? Make up or bath products? Sex toys? Movies? Curious minds want to know.

Anyone doing anything extra exciting this weekend?

We've been having fun on the Moonglade Elite Authors Blog. Thanks for coming out and supporting us :) The book give-a-way for today is: SINDERELLA by Jan Springer. I finished reading this the other night and LOVED IT! I highly recommend it. Come blog with us and sign up with our newsletter to win a chance to own it yourself :)

I will also be popping into the Cobblestone Press chat at 8pm EST to congratulate the authors on their new releases. Fridays are always fun!

Yep, I know. I've been stalling. You caught me. I'm going back to work. And I thought the muse was relentless!!! Chow!

Hello! Your blog is very pretty and colourful! It's a pleasure to read... as for your Q. Yeah, free books are at the top of my list. :) But other than that, I love a selection of stuff... it's always cool to see what the writer comes up with. You're pretty creative with that yourself.

Okay, have a GREAT weekend!

Jodie said...

Fave prize? Can I say sex toys? LOL... No really, I guess I like personalized stuff. But you know, I love giving away jewelry. Not a good thing since they are so expensive. But I don't wear jewelry so I live it through my readers... :)

Ann Cory said...

*blushes* Thanks Y! Heh - see, I'm visiting you more often :)

I like a selection of things as well. It's kind of a mini-birthday or Christmas that way. I'm a sucker for magnets, keychains, business cards - little stuff.

You have a GREAT weekend too toots!

Ann Cory said...

Hey miss Jodie! Personalized stuff is nice. I like receiving jewelry too and hey, I won't turn down a sex toy *BG*

Thanks for stopping by!!

Cathryn Fox said...

I'm here to crack the whip and get you back to work, Ann!

I can't believe it's Friday either. Time is just flying by and I hate that. I've worked non stop since getting back from Atlanta so this weekend I want to do NOTHING! Maybe catch a movie. Anything good playing?

Ann Cory said...

Ouch! Cathryn, that whip smarts! How did you know I was slacking off...darn it, lol.

You deserve a whole weekend to do nothing but indulge in things where you are pampered!!

I hope it's relaxing for you :)

Karen Erickson said...

I'm busting my butt and promoting myself this weekend, that's what I'm doing. :) Oh, and I'm also going to relax and read in between.

I love everything you listed to receive as prizes. All of it. What a big help I am, huh? :)

Ann Cory said...

I'll sure do my best to stop by and say hi to you as you pimp yourself all over the place hon ;) lol

Don't say're tons of help! I think anything as a prize is great. Well, I suppose there are a few things that would be in poor taste, lol.

Here's to some great sales this weekend!!!

Jenn on the Island said...

Well, free books are always great, but I love bath stuff. Bubbles, oils, lotions. Yum.

Send your books to HRC, Ann! I'd love to review them for you! And we don't just do historicals. Check out the sight and you'll see what I mean.

Ann Cory said...

Hi Jenn :) Oh I'm so glad you could stop by today!!!!

I will definitely look into HRC! Thanks so much :)

Loribelle Hunt said...

I have a real weakness for lotions and bath stuff and I try to have some to give away for prizes lol.

I'm hoping to get some major writing done this weekend. I also have website and blog updates that have to be got to too.

Happy birthday to your brother!

Ann Cory said...

I had a feeling sweet Loribelle liked the lap of luxury :)

Hmm, sounds like you're going to have a working weekend! Be sure to do something for yourself, though.

My brother is old, lol


Stacy Dawn said...

Happy BD to your brother!

I'm a nick-nack girl anything from bookmarks to pens to little fun things.

Tempest Knight said...

Have a great weekend! I'm glad it's here already. I couldn't wait. It's been a lousy week.

As for prizes, I'm sold on sweets. *wg*

Ann Cory said...

Knick-knacks rock. Love the word. I forgot about bookmarks - I need to get some made soon.

Did I mention my brother is old, lol. *BG*

He's 13 years older than me, so it's my job to give him a bad time. Ya know?

Happy you stopped by!

Ann Cory said...

Hi Tempest....sweets. I will definitely remember that one. I'm glad it's the weekend too. Part of it will be a working one, but I'm gonna try and do something fun, lol.

You have a good one :)

Shelli Stevens said...

Happy Birthday to your brother! I think I was supposed to do another recipe book for another author and forgot. I'll not commit cause I suck! Jan is a sweetie, too!

Ann Cory said...

LOL You don't suck hon - you're just busy, lol. Thanks for popping in and showing your pretty self.


Shelley Munro said...

Happy birthday to your brother. It was my brother's birthday yesterday. (2nd)
I like vouchers for prizes and of course, I adore books ;-)

Ann Cory said...

Happy b-day to your brother too!!
