Humbled

Just wanted to pop in and mention a couple things.

First, I WANTED TO THANK YOU!!!


thank-you for stopping by whenever you make it. I know I haven't been posting, but things are a bit chaotic for me at the moment as I settle into a different routine with new commitments and responsibilities. I hope to return to blogging more regularly really soon. I have several books I've read and loved that I need to review as well as more giveaways I need to organize. There are also a few things on my mind that I'd like to talk about--just need to organize my thoughts and find a way (and time) to talk about them.


Second, I WAS INTERVIEWED!!!


WBlogo_200pxWide Alison Miller recently interviewed me for the Write Brained Network, an online community for writers in every stage of their writing careers. It's a brilliant community, one of which I'm proud to be a part. I encourage you to check out this community HERE and join in. It's a great way to meet other writers and gain some insight on all aspects of writing and publishing. And if you'd like to check out my interview by Alison, she posted it HERE on her blog. PLEASE do stop by. Seriously. I'm begging you. Not only is Alison a beautiful person with a remarkable writer's blog that I know you'll love to visit (and follow, k?), my self-confidence is on the line here. Also, I divulge secrets.


Third, I'M TALLYING UP ENTRIES!!


for my last giveaway (DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE, ASHES, and SHIFTING). I'll post the winners HERE, just adding them to the original giveaway announcement post as I've done with my last couple of giveaways. I think (hope) it makes it easier for people to find who the winners were, as well as ensuring that anyone who comes upon the giveaway post in the future knows it has already closed.  But please give me a couple of hours (right now it's 10 AM EST). It takes a long time to  tally up entries and randomize them for a drawing.

Daughter_Ashes_Shifting_giveaway So, stop by the ANOTHER GIVEAWAY post after 12 PM EST to find out the winners.


If you didn't get a chance to see who the winners were of my last couple giveaways, those are posted here at the end of the original giveaway posts:

Two ARC Giveaway (POSSESS and THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER)

4 ARCs 4 U Giveaway (FURY, THE SCORPIO RACES, NOCTURNE, and SHELTER)


I'm humbled by all of you who continue to stop by my blog time and time again, commenting, entering giveaways, and just giving your general support with your presence. It's an honor. Many, many thanks.

  7. Congrats on the interview.
    I think in some ways, it's better to post winners on the original giveaway page, but sometimes, people forget to check; they (meaning "we" or "I" [not that I'm self-centered or anything :P]) prefer the winner in a fresh blog post, so we don't forget to check.
    I don't mind. Do what you please. Good luck to everyone who entered!

  11. Hehehe that's why I love the blogosphere. There are always people who are there to support you even though you're not able to do the same for them at the time.

    I'm experiencing the same thing these days. :-D

  12. That WriteBrained thing is really cool, and technically I'm a member, but I never go there because I just don't have time for ONE MORE THING.

  28. One of the things I admire about you is that you are so kind to your readers. And I totally hear ya on organizing your thoughts and then finding a way (and time) to talk about them. Is it just me or does life rev up when you need it to slow down? Anyways, I hope that you're doing well, girl.
