The EBook version of ComPETability(Dogs) is FREE for the next couple of weeks, in exchange for an honest review. Feel free to share the link with all your pet loving friends.
Last Friday I had a lovely conversation with my editor about the future plans for my fiction. It’s all very exciting! But none of it will happen–until I get MORE BOOKS WRITTEN! Most of y’all know that the sequel to LOST AND FOUND is in the works. Readers asked for it so HIDE AND SEEK will have more dog-viewpoint (yay Shadow!), more September (including more explanation about her mysterious PTSD), and more Macy-the-Cat. . . and a few others to-be-named dogs and cats, as well. Stay tuned, maybe YOU will get to name ’em.
The third book in the series, tentatively titled SEARCH AND DESTROY is now officially in the lineup, too. SQUEEEE! YIKES, now I gotta get on the schtick and speed up the writer-icity to meet those deadlines. 🙂 Do you work better when you have deadlines? I sure do…never mind that they create more gray hairs. Because of the schedule (two books in about six months) the blogging schedule may get a weeee bit erratic at times, but I’ll do my best to keep up. Please forgive me in advance, should the wheels fall off…and I hope you’ll stick around for all the thriller-icity to come!
Meanwhile, I’m also offering a few more Webinars on writer-ly subjects over the next two weeks that cover Media Training for Authors, one on Writing Nonfiction Book Proposals, and a two-day session in August on Niche Writing. These are available on the web with your headset or telephone line, and recorded for you to watch/listen after the fact as well. Hope some of my hard-won experience and tips will help you achieve yoru writer-ly dreams, too.
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. 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.
