Secrets in the Annex and Fall Festival

Yay! I'm very excited to share my story Secrets in the Annex was accepted by Liquid Silver! That sure made my day :) I will be posting a blurb about it later in the week.




I also finally buckled down and joined RWA. I know, total shockeroo that I've waited this long, eh? It was a timing thing. I also joined Passionate Ink. Next up - get myself ready to find an agent. I've been working on a couple novels to send them, but they both need some polishing.

I successfully made it through an entire week of working out! I also have been feeling horrible this week, but refused to not go. I think my body is trying to rebel, lol. I enjoy the instructor - she is motivating and plays some great music. She also does a lot of dancy stuff, and I used to be a dancer, so I'm loving the choreography. This week she has set the step and floor workout to musicals - another favorite, so I'm really looking forward to it. I can't believe I'm saying that, but it's true, lol.

This weekend was nice. We went to the Fall Festival in our town and had a great time. There had to have been over 300 vendors out there selling handmade pretties. I can't believe I didn't buy anything - but we want a new laptop and couch, and are saving up for a house - so we're trying to be very, very good and not by anything on the spur of the moment. The weather was gorgeous, so we spent most of it outside. We also found a new sandwich place, mmmmmmmmm, did I ever have a fantastic lunch! Fall is one of my favorite seasons and I love watching the leaves change :) We also had a delish apple pie. Yes - I know, but I was good all week ;) lol

QUESTION OF THE DAY:
Fondue is a sexy treat, especially when it's chocolate. Who would you love to dip in chocolate?

5 Lips for Night of the Nogitsune from lovely reviewer Frost of Two Lips Reviews: Ann Cory delivers another satisfyingly character-driven tale, which steams and sizzles all the way through. The plot had this reviewer caught up immediately. I am so thankful this is the first in a series; I really want to read more of these stories! I sincerely hope Ms. Cory will deliver the next in the Nogitsune series quickly! Night of the Nogitsune Book 1 Wanted is a definite winner. Full review Here.

Other News:
Bard of Bristol is #6 at Fictionwise for Midnight Showcase, and Egyptian Cotton is #3 for Mardi Gras Publishing :)

I have added some new goodies to Ann's Boutique. A calendar, some shirts, a journal, and a tote bag in the Butterfly Kisses line.

Where to find me this week?
Today at the MEA Blog as well as at The Story Board. Hmm, I believe I'll be at Novelspotters - though no time is set - it's sort of a pop in when you want. Also this week I have my dentist appointment, where the other side of my mouth will be put through grueling pain, Meet the Teachers Night at my son's school, and of course at the gym. What do you have planned?

Eeexcellent news about the sale to Liquid Silver.

Now, about the dipping in chocolate....let's see. So many choices! You should check out my blog yesterday about the "List of Five." How tall is Hugh Jackman, anyway. I have a feeling he would take a LOT of chocolate.

Congrats on the sale Ann!!

I've been holding off on joining RWA myself, until I actually bother submitting....(rolling eyes)

One guess at who I'd dip in chocolate!

And my fave would have to be The Italian Job.

Monica M. Martin said...

WOOHOO! Congratulations on your sale at LS, hun! *Sending you a great BIG hug* I wish you all the success you can stand! :)
Cheers, M.

Mia Romano said...

Congrats on all those wonderful books getting ready to be released. You are on a roll girl!

Karen Erickson said...

Congrats on the sale Ann! That's so awesome...

Ann Cory said...

Thanks Stacy, and I'm so glad you had a great bday and shared your day with The Story Board!

You're one talented lady, and I look forward to reading more of your work :)

*hugs*

Ann Cory said...

Thanks ywsmith :)

I ended up having to cancel my dentist appointment because we received a notice that our apartment complex managers were coming around to do inspections all day - and I don't like people coming in when I'm not home. *sigh* So - the pain is postponed, lol.

Ann Cory said...

Thanks Tara! I love scavenger hunts too - and the best part is the great prizes ;)

Ann Cory said...

Mmmmmmm Hugh Jackman would be delish dipped in chocolate - I just know it *BG*

Thank you :)

*hugs*

Ann Cory said...

Gosh Jenn, I don't know who you could be referring to *snicker snicker* Would that be - Mark? lol.

Yeah, I figured even though I've been writing, it wasn't the right time - and for whatever reason, the right time is now. I really just wanted to be in Passionate Ink - but of course you have to be in RWA for that *sigh*

I really enjoyed The Italian Job - I'm going to have to rent that again!

Ann Cory said...

Awwwwwwww, thank you the divine Miss M! I'm really pleased too :)

*muah*

Ann Cory said...

Thank you Mia! I've sure missed you - I hope things are going well for you and that you're also taking good care of yourself! Oh - and write more books woman!!! :)

*hugs*

Ann Cory said...

Thank you Karen!!! You're such a sweetie :) I'm loving those blog reviews!!

WOOT WOOT
