What Was That?...

This month is whipping by pretty fast. Then again, the amount of work I do makes things go by quickly. All in all, things are looking up in the financial end of things around my house. We were able to get caught up on just about every bill in one fell swoop. Most of the bills, that is. I still have a whole crap-load to take care of, but the burden is far less than before.

On writing news, I've been trying to get some things done on my days off. My husband and I have picked up a paper route here in town. Sounds like we're a couple of kids, hehe! But in all seriousness, we've been alternating days. For both of us to do 7 days in a row, I think we'd end up hurting someone due to being so overtired. But by alternating days, we at least get to rest a little more. When he does the route, he goes right into work and comes home. He gets early nights whereas I have late nights at work, then get up for the paper route and come home, go back to bed and get up for work in the afternoon. Not ideal, by any means, but nothing I can do about it.

As far as the writing front goes, I realized last week that the days are going by so fast, I have to get my schedule out. I still don't have a solid release date, but I am going to pretend mid September in my scheduling. I'll be sending out an email to everyone who wants to help me and my sister in law on our blog tour. I have a couple of reviewers lined up as well, so I have to wait for the ARC's, then get them out ASAP. Once my book is due out, I am thinking of taking a vacation from my cashier job so I can focus on my blog, Twitter, FaceBook and blog tour. I'm also slowly adding book covers to my side-bar on my blog of other authors. Takes me a while, but I want to put up ones I have read. I'll have a spot for ones I am getting ready to read. But if you want your book cover up there, shoot me a message! I'll work at getting it up there.

So, if you have agreed to be a part of my book launch tour, expect that e-mail soon! A tentative schedule will soon follow. Thanks everyone, for your support, your patience and loyalty. So much of this could not have been possible without you all there cheering me on! *Much love!*

Oh hey, my books are there!
I'll be watching for your email. You'll need a little extra time online just before and during your tour. The day my last book came out, I took the whole day off. Glad I did, because it took me eleven hours just to visit the three hundred blogs featuring my book. (I don't recommend that either!)
