Congrats to Tonya, you’ve won a copy of Incorporeal. I’m pretty sure most of you who left me such kind comments already have the book. But thanks for your birthday wishes!
Not to appear mopey, but I do get the distinct impression that there are so many book giveaways going on all the time nobody really pays much attention anymore.
Nevertheless, here’s one more book for your Kindle reading pleasure, for one lucky visitor:
In the Flesh: Lightning in the middle of a blizzard? Dr. Sydney Blake has read about it, but this is the first time in all her life she’s experienced it. Has her truck been struck? Blinded by the flash, she slams on the brakes and dives from the driver’s seat, right into a snow drift.
As a shivering Syd gropes to her feet, she keeps her eyes shut tight, praying she didn’t actually see what she thinks she saw in that flash of light… a golden giant standing smack dab in the middle of the road. No way. Not possible. Or is it? In The Flesh is the sequel to Incorporeal, a paranormal romance by Julia Barrett.
If you’d like a chance to win a copy, leave me a comment – feel free to talk about the weather! Lightning strikes in a blizzard are good. I’m not particular. Tweet away!
Tonight I’m grateful my son has food poisoning rather than appendicitis. I’m grateful my husband was put on a plane other than the one that couldn’t fly straight – even if it meant he was stranded twice, first in Montana and then in Seattle – he made it home safe and sound late this morning.
I think tomorrow I’ll discuss the dangers of under-cooked poultry. (I won’t touch the subject of flying.)
Or why Sunday’s stellar yet, at the same time, disappointing episode of A Game of Thrones reminded me far too much of The Tudors (a re-write of Henry VIII’s court which made me nauseous).
Or I may discuss cover-disconnect (when a cover reflects nothing of the story within).
Or perhaps I’ll mention that I am stunned to find myself incredibly underwhelmed and dare I say, bored, by the book, The Hunger Games. I never in a million years thought the day would come when I’d actually hear myself utter these words– Twilight is a better read.
You know, blogging is a tough act. There are so many knowledgeable bloggers out there in the ethersphere discussing the publishing industry and the pace of change. Others teach the craft of writing and still others, carpentry (otherwise known as author platform building). I don’t spend much time discussing these issues. It’s not my business to tell you how to do your work or what to do with your work – some very intelligent people have made it their life’s purpose to fill that role.
However, there are days when I ask myself… why not hang up a Closed sign and just write books?
I think some restructuring is in order, don’t you? Either this blog needs some thought or an infusion of vampire blood. I’ll get back to you.
