Morning, Sweet Peeps! I’ve been stuck in the house since Thursday with Ice-ageddon here in North Texas. Nowhere to go, lots of soup being made (and eaten), and Magical-Dawg bored out of his furry skull. There are LOTS of links today since I’ve been saving up.
Did I mention, my husband also home during this time? Five days. All day long. With the TV on…oh, my. Since I work from home, and actually continued to “try” to work, it’s been a weeee bit of a challenge to have someone here. I have made headway on my revisions for LOST AND FOUND sequel HIDE AND SEEK, but not nearly as much as hoped. Oh, and now I have a cover for the book, thanks to my wonderful publisher and feedback from some of my Facebook fans! This time there’s a Maine Coon cat on the cover, along with Shadow, the GSD! Yee-haw! (see, if you “like” that page, you’ll stay up to date on some breaking news schtuff…)
Stay tuned, because once the revisions are completed I plan to reach out to y’all for some pre-publication reads for possible reviews both here on the blog and from Facebook Fans and newsletter subscribers. YOU are the reason the first book was a success–and I want you to get first look at the sequel. (Winners of the Name That Dog and Name That Cat contest get the book first, of course!).
Monday Mentions is the mash-up-day of all the neato-torpedo writer links and videos, pet schtuff and bling and writer-icity crappiocca collected over the past week. Lots of videos today, including a moving horseback ride, Pug-icity, and a way-kewl fun music video at the bottom for all you theater and Wizard of Oz lovers, don’t miss it! Check out the THRILLERFEST video at the bottom, too. For new followers to the blog, welcome! and you can expect more cat and dog specific schtuff later in the week on Wednesday and Friday.
