Since I haven't had any money lately ( long story) I've been having to raid my TBR bookshelf and finally start reading all those books that I haven't read yet because I've been buying new books,,,,,,,,but, now I am reading them........Did you understand any of that?

Stephanie Williams | 128 comments Hello everyone! I'm working on a new book, in fact I just submitted it, so cross your fingers. I am now editing two more stories for submission.

Just finshed celebrating my birthday which was Thursday, so I'm here in the states with family and friends. :)

Happy Birthday, Stephanie.

I've been trying to keep up with my reading challenges, working, and trying to make it through a terribly hot summer. Haven't been writing too much lately, but I did write a little last night and hope to write more this weekend.

Stacy-Deanne (wwwgoodreadscomstacydeanne) Been busy doing rewrites on the upcoming book for 2011 among getting promotional things together and working with my pub. They're already getting ready to do the cover, yaa! I don't have the official release date yet but it seems it will be the middle of next year. Maybe the spring or sooner. I'll let everyone know of course. We're already spreading the word around online (the pub as well), especially on Facebook and I'm working my social network sites. But I can't wait to get the cover!

Danielle, I'll be in contact with you about some possible promotion things for my book if you're interested. I've read your blog and you are doing great things, bringing IR readers and authors together.

Happy Birthday, Stephanie! I might have missed it but hope you enjoyed your B-day!

Best Wishes!

LaVerne (lavernethompson) | 77 comments I've been busy promoting work that came out Aug. 1 and the pirates had it Aug. 2. So you know how pissed I am. Am working on a book trailer for a paranormal I have coming out at the end of Sept. just submitted a story I cowrote with my good buddy Stephanie. And I'm working on 2 more stories.

The good news is school started today so hopefully that will free up more time. At least in theory. LOL!

If anyone wants to read an excerpt for the new paranormal here's the link http://www.lavernethompson.com/coming...

Just been in a funk, but it's getting better.

lol, Loni. Getting paid like a slave?

It's time for a raise.

I know, right?! My company closed after 80 years, so I've had to do temp work for now. So much for a Masters doing much good. Oh well.

LaVerne (lavernethompson) | 77 comments I just sent off the first round of edits for a short story that will be part of an anthology from Freya's Bower, whose sales will go to benefit battered women. I'll tell you guys more about it as we move forward. I've very excited about this.

Bekah (page317) | 113 comments Mod
I just moved cross country!!!! I am officially an East Coast girl again...finally, and I do mean finally..this is the final time! :-) Still trying to get unpacked but I did take today to go and get a library card at the local library. Let me tell you about the local library! OMG, I think MY book collection is more extensive than theirs. Plus the library is soooo small! Luckily the card will work with all libraries in the state and they also have some ebook options I will get to take advantage of.


message 29: by Arch , Mod (new)

Arch  | 5842 comments Mod
If you have more books than the library Bekah, then for sure that library is very small. They can check out books from you. :)


message 30: by Bekah, Mod (new)

Bekah (page317) | 113 comments Mod
:-) lol, I didn't think of that, but there is no way I'd lend out my books to them, not after seeing the condition of the majority of their books.


message 31: by Arch , Mod (new)

Arch  | 5842 comments Mod
Bekah, maybe you can donate the books that you don't want to them. It seems as if their library is in need of some books.

Bekah, that's sad that the library is so small. I hope you find a good used bookstore nearby! And, I'm glad the move went well!


message 33: by Bekah, Mod (new)

Bekah (page317) | 113 comments Mod
Thanks Danielle!!! I totally forgot about the used book store...probably because I'm trying to build my e book library because my space option is so small presently. I've resigned myself to only buying new books from the authors I MUST have. Ugh...this is so frustrating..because I do want books, lots and lots of books in my possession. I'm still trying to get used to owning e books and taking my pleasure from that....because you just can't really "see" them all over your house now can you???

Good idea Arch! I will have to consider doing that.


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Self-Proclaimed Book Ninja) (Gatadelafuente) | 7024 comments Mod
Bekah, I have quite an ebook collection myself. But, it's mainly IR and small press books, as well as free classics. I can totally understand the space issue, though. My sister is concentrating on ebooks because of her allergies.

Sharon, since you've been gone, we've changed the rules a bit. I'm asking that you don't use the reply button when you post. Start an empty comment box. Thanks!

I didn't answer your question. I am making it. Have a bit of a summer cold, but I'm doing alright.

JC (ainathiel) My update is that I am struggling through a math class and an anatomy and physiology class. It is slowly eating my brain. I am striving for a B grade to maintain my average.

I am also working on the third segment of the story I call Hybrid.
