This is a Working Wednesday, is it not?

I Loved You First

  • Published ILYF on Smashwords, Amazon, and B&N
  • Ordered Proof from CreateSpace
  • Sent out the Smashwords coupons to those who signed up for a review copy through Goodreads
  • Sent out another 50 or so review requests (currently over 100 out there now)
  • Put blog tour schedule on the blog
  • Extended the blog tour from August 15 – September 15 to August 15 – September ??? (the response has been great, so maybe it’ll expand to September 30)
  • Created Press Kit for the blog tour and have been sending that out

So ILYF is looking pretty great. Now I’m concentrating on sending out more requests and filling dates for the expanded blog tour. ILYF is on sale until August 5, by the way. $0.99 at Amazon and Smashwords (use the coupon code – FA89H)

I haven’t decide what’ll be up for grabs yet, but I’m thinking of either giving extra points for those who add the Blog Tour button on their page or maybe even a special drawing. I’ll have a better idea once the Proof arrives. Stroking a copy of the book will help me think clearer. Until then, Add the button to your sidebar and check back for updates.

ILYF Blog Tour: August 15 - September 15

Blog

  • Added a couple of pages (Shadow Cat blog tour & ILYF blog tour)
  • Not blog related, but more Website related – Updated the site to reflect the release status of ILYF but still need to change the header
  • Added donate button to help offset the costs of giveaways (Yes! I want MORE giveaways. I wish I could do one every week, but my pocketbook says that’s a fantasy.)

Reading Challenge

  • I’m still 3 books behind, but by the end of this week, I anticipate only being 2 books behind!
  • Plan to read at least 2 books a week to catch up
  • Currently reading Am I Really a Christian? by Mike McKinley

In Other News!!!

If you haven’t picked up a copy of Shadow Cat, great news for you! Aobibliosphere is offering a copy at her blog. Yip yip! Head over there and check it out the giveaway.

Shadow Cat (Book One) Eric Randall’s plan is simple—fix the mess his researchers have created in Malaysia, experience the pleasures the country has to offer, and return to the comforts of America. All it takes is one beautiful aborigine, and Eric finds himself stranded in a world of Malaysian myths and legends.

A novice shaman amongst her people, Berani is free and independent. Yet all is not well in her homeland. Demons prey on her people, pushing them to extinction. When a strange speaking man invades her forest, she has one more worry to add to her already troubled life. Attraction or no, she will fight Eric tooth and claw to maintain her freedom. But will she destroy herself in the process?

If Berani wishes to save her family… if Eric wishes to reclaim his old life, they must stand together against the threats of encroaching wehr-tigers and bloodsucking demons… or perish.

************************

Last but not least! I’m participating in a blog hop event starting Monday. Exciting. :) My job is to help secure as many votes as possible for my writing buddy, Lenore Wolfe, author of Doorway to the Triquetra.

Okay. So the voting doesn’t start until Monday. When the time comes, you can put in your vote for Doorway to the Triquetra–no other book, just Doorway to the Triquetra–and help my buddy win this thang. Yes… that’s spelled right, thang. :) So remember, support and vote for Doorway to the Triquetra.

When an ancient medallion is passed down to her, Mira is not happy to learn she is the next Jaguar Witch, bound by the blood of the Jaguar, to cross the doorway and learn the Way of the Stone. She must find the Doorway of the Triquetra, but each move she makes only leads her to a deeper mystery, where all of her past lives are bound–to four immortal men.
