hello from the editing cave + a giveaway

I have nothing new to report this week except that I turned in three work projects and have decided to scrap everything I’ve written on my novella and write it in third person. It’s just the right thing to do. But that will have to wait for a later time.

Related: If you need me, I’ll be in my editing cave until August 15. 


In other news, my Alley post this week was an oldie but goodie about how to pitch your work without being pushy, and if you haven’t participated in our pre-conference blog link-up, we’d love to have you!

Okay. On to the real reason you’re here 🙂

Add subheading

Since I will be a little scarce around here, I’m going to do some giveaways to share the love, starting with a copy of Melissa Tagg’s awesome novel, Like Never Before, and this sunset watercolor daily notepad from Kristin Schmucker, which is my favorite thing since chocolate buttercream.

Newsletter subscribers will have an automatic entry, but you can also take pity on your cold, lonely friend and throw me a cherry creme truffle, iced chai, or other surprise in my editing cave by commenting on this post! Best of luck to you!

Little tip: there will be more giveaways happening on my author Facebook page, so make sure you keep an eye out there! And so the FTC doesn’t come find me in my editing cave, all prizes are sponsored solely by moi!

    It’s always amusing to hear writers talk about their editing processes. We’re all a little crazy, I think. I’m so glad to hear you’re making progress, even if some of it requires backtracking. And I’m also glad you decided to take a break and give away cool stuff! Thanks, Laurie!

  3. Iced Chai telepathicly sent to you right now! Ahhh, taste the cool yummy liquid!!
