Halloween is Coming and Fun on the Schedule Today

Is everyone ready for Halloween? Yes, this is Halloween week, and I’m celebrating the fact today over at a weeklong Facebook event Kathi Daley is hosting that she’s calling a Halloween Spooktacular. Trust me, that event name sums it up nicely. Different review bloggers each day invited their favorite authors to come and takeover an hour of the event. Today’s blogger is Girl with Book Lungs and I’m filling her 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT takover hour (1-2 p.m. CDT, noon-1 p.m. MDT, and 11 a.m. to noon PDT). Here’s the link if you want to come and join us Kathi Daley’s Halloween Spooktacular on Facebook and click Discussion to see all the posts and follow all the fun. Lots of terrific things planned, and I’ve even had some help with my posts by a few of the other authors in our MIDNIGHT MYSTERIES anthology.

Laurel Beacham Offers a Peek Behind the Scenes

Laurel Beacham may be dodging her “pet journalist” at the moment to keep from giving an interview about her job, but she agreed to sit down at Dru’s Book Musing for a little Day in the Life action. You know Laurel is about three cups of coffee into the day already, but if you want to take a coffee or tea break with her, I promise she’ll have something interesting to say. And there’s a signed book up for grabs to one lucky commenter. However, this is a fast contest, and you’ll need to enter quickly. This is also the last weekend for the 99¢ sale on Counterfeit Conspiracies, so if you want a bargain please hurry before it’s gone!

Excuse Me While I Change My Hat

This has been one exciting week. Nothing like a new book release to have all my friends come out, send congratulations, and tell their friends about my new book. I am so very grateful for that. For authors, release week leaves us to the point of almost walking in our sleep–it’s exciting, but completely exhaustng. There are so many things for authors to do All At The Same Time, and trying to keep up makes us long for the kind of promo teams James Patterson and Stephen King employ. But most of us do not make the kind of revenues those bigname authors get, so we happily jump in and change hats to whatever other job(s) we have to do besides writing. Even more exciting, to celebrate the release of ABSTRACT ALIASES, my publisher has discounted COUNTERFEIT CONSPIRACIES to just 99¢ until Sunday night. This is the first time Henery Press has discounted one Read more…
