Saturday Mornings

Today is the first Saturday I've been home in about two and a half months.
But speech is over, so I don't have to get up at the crack of dawn and ride a bus to a cold high school (they are always cold on Saturdays, I don't know why) and judge kids
giving speeches about anything from mosquitoes to suicide.
I love speech, but it's kind of nice to be home.
I am busy working on revisions at the moment and it's fun
to see my story getting polished up more and more.
I hope all of you are having a great weekend!
I hope to be around the blogging world a lot more now that speech is done. :)

Secondary Characters Bloghop Announcement!

I'd like to announce the Secondary Characters Bloghop!
Sometimes secondary characters steal the show, (or the book) and become our favorites. On May 22nd we want you to tell us about your favorite secondary characters from books or movies, or both!
Whether it's the funny best friend or that goofy kid next door,
we want to know what secondary characters
you just couldn't get enough of and why.
Theresa Paolo, Kelley Lynn, Jessica SalyerJenny Morris and Suzi Retzlaff
are cohosting and were all generous enough offer critiques as prizes!
These ladies are brilliant, wonderful critiquers.
I am also planning on giving away a three chapter critique along with an ebook
 of Secondary Characters,
which releases on May 28th.
Cassie Mae and Kelley Lynn will also pick a winner to get either an ebook of
Reasons I Fell for the Funny Fat Friend, or a signed copy of Fraction of Stone.
So sign up on the linky list below and start thinking about your favorite secondary characters!

Secondary Characters Cover Reveal

Swoon Romance revealed my cover today for Secondary Characters.
It's on the website and everything!
I have to say, I kind of love it. :)
When Mabel's best friend, Amber, drags her along on a double date she finds herself falling for Lance, the obnoxious class clown whom she swore she'd have no interest in. The only problem is, she's not sure if she's really the girl Lance is into, or if, like every other guy she knows, it's really Amber he's after. One thing is clear, if Mabel wants to be the lead in her own love story, she needs to start acting like it.
It releases May 28th.
I am also planning to have a bloghop to celebrate,
more details about that coming soon.
Have a great Tuesday everyone! (I am.) :) :)

IWSG: Bad Blogger

It's time for Insecure Writer's Support Group. To find out more check out Alex's blog. If you don't know Alex, you must be new here. Go find him right now!

I know I haven't been around lately, I've been so busy! But good busy. I have nine kids from my speech team going on to Sections next week, and three alternates. Most of them have a real good shot at going to State, too, so wish us luck! I also cast our spring play yesterday, so practices for that will be starting soon.

On the writing front I'm waiting to get my edits on Secondary Characters, but I'm keeping busy writing new things. I'm almost to 10,000 words on my latest project and I kind of love it. I also have a novella out with CPs, but now I think I might hate it. (I'm kinda' nervous they'll send back notes that say, "Um, really? This stinks.)

But my biggest insecurity right now is that after this big blogging break that I'll have a hard time getting back into it. I took a break in the spring last year, too, for speech and theater, and came back without trouble but of course I still worry about it. I really enjoy blogging, I love reading everyone's news and progress. And I will be back soon! If I've missed any major news please catch me up! Thanks!
