Magic and Mayhem, Contests, and Features!

I promised one of my crit partners that I'd blog 5 times between January 18th and January 31st. I'll have to go back and check, but I think I might be one post short. I'm a horrible blogger. Mainly because I'm a horrible planner. I'm such a spontaneous person that the thought of lining up blog topics and posts in advance makes me break out into a sweat. I'm going to try to be better, though. I promise. ;)

So, it sounds silly to say, but I'm officially eleven months from the release of SHAEDES OF GRAY. It sounds like forever away, but really, it's not. A year has never felt so short to me, including my daughter's senior year of high school, and that year flew by! So, for the next eleven months, I'll be doing one contest per month. You can win books, critiques, swag, writerly essentials (you know, post-its, notebooks, pens, the stuff we can't live without), and in later months, I'll be giving away some awesome Shaede-related stuff that I'm really excited about. But I'll be keeping the details under-wraps for a while! Also, I'm going to be adding some new features to this blog: guest posts, short stories, and other fun stuff. I'll be crossing my fingers that I can teach myself to be a better planner, because I want this year on the blog to be epic!

Also, I'll be contributing to the Magic and Mayhem blog once a week. It's a Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy blog featuring myself and three other AMAZING debut authors. We'll be doing some fun contests, blogging about what we love...mainly all things Paranormal/UF! So stop by and say hello. This week we'll be giving away our favorite books of 2010. Be sure to leave a comment over there to be entered to win and spread the word! We'd love to hear from you.
