1. The free promotion on Finding Angel in Kindle format is over. There were more than 8,000 downloads! Here's hoping that a good chunk of those lead to sales of Seeking Unseen.
2. The new forever price of Finding Angel in Kindle format is $3.99! (Well, unless I do another freebie down the road...)
3. I have discovered that a watched pot never boils. Translated into writer speak, that saying means, an Amazon page checked every five minutes will never gain a review...
4. In three days I head off to the NECRONOMICON sci-fi/fantasy/horror/gaming convention! Take a moment to check out their site. Cllick here for this year's t-shirt design. Once you are there, click the little word "spoilers" in the lower left of the far left box. Trust me, it is worth it!!! And if you are at the Necro, please find me! I'll be selling books and speaking on six writing panels!
5. Next month I'll be going to the Sarasota Medieval Fair. Not as an author or anything, just with my homeschool group. But I'm excited! I keep visiting Etsy.com and searching for and drooling over the awesome Medieval dresses and wishing I had a spare $300 to chunk down on one.
6. Getting very excited as well about the new James Bond movie, Skyfall, coming out in November!
7. I was not always a James Bond fan. I found the earlier movies confusing until my husband finally explained to me that the opening scenes didn't have anything to do with the rest of movie--it was Bond's last mission. Once I learned to disregard the beginnings, I started liking Bond flicks. And the new ones don't do that anymore. Plus, let's face it. Daniel Craig. 'Nuff said.
8. Did you see who is playing the new Bond girl? For some reason I find this uber-exciting.
9. The audio book for Finding Angel is going to be out very soon. The narrator is finishing up tweaks, and will be uploading the final version, and then we will be LIVE!
10. Stopping here. Ten is a nice round number. So what should it be? How about the new trick I discovered to tell if a sentence is in passive voice...You add "by zombies" after the verb:
He catapulted the chair across the room. -- He catapulted by zombies the chair across the room. (Nope, not passive.)
He was catapulted across the room. -- He was catapulted by zombies across the room. (Ding, ding, ding!)
