Summer Ketchup

Although I do like ketchup, this post is more about the action of catching-up then dipping chips in a condiment. (Yup, I dip my plain chips in ketchup. Don't knock it 'til you try it!)

I'm taking a blogging break until the end of August, but I won't be totally gone. I'll be posting a few times with relative posts for fellow pub pals' new releases as well as my own. I have so much news I've yet to share with you, but because of my health issues and caring for my mom this past winter I'm disgustingly behind on everything from writing to laundry. I haven't even sent out a newsletter yet and I announced signups back in February! I mean now, really. 

To keep this post short, I'll finish up bullet-style: 
  • Upcoming Newzzz - I have a HUGE fall season coming up with the release of my debut middle grade novel! If you are willing to help me out in any way - cover reveal, blog tour, giveaway, release blitz, FB party read/review an ARC - please let me know it the comments or email me. There will be lollypops and gummies involved. #Nom-Nom
  • ***Speaking of which, I saw my cover the other day!!! Holy Batman, dude! It's brimming with a bit of creepy and mythology and OMgosh! Can't wait to share it with you.
  • Newsletter - If you haven't signed up I'd be forever grateful if you did. Plus, you'll receive my writing aid: Character & Setting FREE! I'm only planning three newsletters a year, unless there's some pressing news to share. Sign up in my right sidebar or right HERE.
  • New Story - I completely forgot I have a story coming out this summer in a YA anthology! UNDER A BRASS MOON is releasing on July 28th with my story ETHEREAL COIL - a new sin eater refuses to do her job, but discovers she might not have a choice with Wrath - one of the Seven Deadly Sins - on her trail. Here's a peek at the cover, which I forgot to share with you last week. EEK! (How good am I doing?)

A moon of gears and wires shines down upon a world of clockwork creations and humming airships. What adventures await the heroes in top hats and heroines in corsets? 

Nineteen authors wait at the kingdom's entrance. They smile and beckon you inside their stories.  

Do you accept the offered lantern and follow? If you do, then open to the front page and begin...

  • ADD My Middle Grade - Lastly, even if you don't normally read middle grade I'd be so incredibly grateful if you'd add MOTLEY EDUCATION to your to-be-read list. Even share that you've added it. you have any exciting plans for this summer? Please share! 
Let me live vicariously through you.

  1. Congratulations! Cool cover for the anthology.
    Be glad to help you with a blog tour.

    1. Thanks so much, Alex. Enjoy your summer. I'll be in touch!

  2. You know I want to help in any way I can. Just let me know :)

    1. Thanks, Marcy. I really appreciate it. It's strange. I'm sure you'll understand, though. We wait for what feels like forever to be at this point, but now it feels almost anti-climactic, almost blah... Not sure if it's the stress of all I have to do or the weird feeling like I've got this, but I fear it might be the calm before the storm. lol

  3. I already have your guest post set for 10/10 for your middle grade book.

    1. Yay! I remember and I can't wait. Already have it on my calendar.

      Thank you so much!

  4. I hope you are feeling better!
