Usually Wednesday means a quick post to direct you to the Confabulator Cafe. This time, I have three things for you.
First–and I know a lot of you saw me announce this on Facebook yesterday, so bear with me while I say it again–Carina Press has acquired the rest of the Monster Haven series.
So, yay! This means the book I’m working on right now, Fairies in My Fireplace, is going ahead. But wait, there’s more! There are three more books in the series after that, and those, too, have been acquired by my publisher. Zoey’s world is now officially a six-book series. As I’ve mentioned, Pooka in My Pantry (book two) comes out in March, and now they’re talking about a September release for Fairies in My Fireplace. Scheduling for the rest of the books is still being discussed, but they’re definitely coming.
Second–Big stuff is going down over at the Here Be Magic site. It’s been awhile (a month or so) since I’ve blogged over there, and some of you are new here. So, to sum up, Here Be Magic is a group blog of Carina Press authors who write science fiction, fantasy, steampunk, time travel, paranormal, etc.
We’re having a big Halloween party, so you should definitely head over there. Not just today, but every week through this month. Why? Prizes, my friends. Big prizes. Some are geared toward other writers (critiques, coaching, etc.) and some are geared toward readers (free books, bookmarks, pens, swag of all kinds). The more entries you get in there, the better chance you have of winning something good. And by good, I mean the grand prize at the end of the month–a Kindle Fire loaded up with a bunch of our books.
I’m in on the Kindle, so my book will be on it. You could also win a big basket of swag or a non-human character in one of my future books named after you.
Lots of prizes. Lots. Head over and enter lots of times. Leave comments. Win something! Everybody likes free stuff.
Third–Of course, I’m also over at the Confabulator Cafe today. This week we were asked how supportive of our writing endeavors the people around us are. I, of course, have a perfectly wonderful family, so it was kind of tough to write. But there’s still one person who’s my biggest naysayer–actually, my only naysayer. It’s all in the title, really: My Only Enemy Is Me.
So, there you go. Three things on a Wednesday morning.
See you real soon!
