Hump Day Updates: Soooo Big!

This last week was all about the BIG.

Big…ahem…muscles. (See Jimmy Thomas. Does my grin say it ALL?)

Big events like Arizona Dreamin’. Year one amazed and wowed me, all the authors and all the readers, too. This is a reader-centric event. A fangirl gush dream. As a fan, I got to stalk both Erin Kellison and Gini Koch IN PERSON.

Not to mention Erin Quinn and Deena Remiel. Two more faves.

As an author, I got to meet several HOT club members in person. *hugs*

OH, and did I mention hunky Jimmy Thomas was there. He’s even MORE gorgeous in person with the personality to match. A genuinely kind soul that you immediately warm to.

The Indie Book Collective programs and staff are growing fast and hard and I’m pinching myself that I’m an integral part of it.

There’s BIG exciting stuff on deck this summer:

June 29th: “Dollars & Sense: The Definitive Guide to Self-publishing Success” by Carolyn McCray, Rachel Thompson and yours truly will be up for Bestseller For a Day. Truly, this ebook will help any author. Not just Indie.

July 18th-22nd: I’ll join 14 authors in the Blog Tour de Force Menage a Blog where for 5 days, 3 authors per day will woo you with prizes, free ebooks and a chance to win a KINDLE! My coming release “Soul Search” will be up for grabs. We’re talking BIG fun.

July 28th-31st I’ll join Indie Book Co-founders Carolyn McCray and Rachel Thompson in New York City for the Indie Book Event where we’ll speak on two industry panels. BIG history in the making.

My weekly co-hosting gigs on Blog Talk Radio are proving to be BIG fun.

If you’re like me, summer is for reading. Right? Right! I started my summer off with “Shadow Touch” by Erin Kellison. Right now it’s only 99 cents on Amazon Kindle and I have to say, yes, I stalk her, but this one BLEW me away BIG time.  Grab it while its hot and let me know what you think. I’m dying to chat about it.

Happy Summer!

Stop #6: 200 Comment Challenge

So far, Carolyn McCray holds the comment crown for the Blog Tour de Force Get Loaded tour. She hit 107 her first day and most of those were individual, not repeat commenters.

Ann Charles, my author bff, is today’s stop and her Daphne winning book Nearly Departed in Deadwood could be ours for free IF she can get to 200 individual comments. Whoa. 200?! Actually, I think we can do that.

Yeah, I’ve already read Nearly Departed in Deadwood. No, I wasn’t surprised she won the Daphne because the book is that good. I’d love it even if I didn’t love her. It just conveniently worked out that way.

So, do you like being in the know before the rest of the world? Like to lord it over others how you knew them before they were big? This is one of those opportunities. Go leave a comment. Go tell your friends to, too. And mark my words. See if she isn’t a household name very soon.

Seriously! Go NOW!!! Just click here!
