I’ve been busy this week. My newest book, HEARTS IN MOTION, is out. I have a contest going on at Magical Musings with a $20 giveaway. On my Facebook author page, I have a Name the Cat and Dog contest. I’m giving a $10 gift card to the people whose names I’ll use in my next Rescued Hearts book, CHRISTMAS AT ANGEL LAKE. And Amy at So Many Reads is featuring HEARTS IN MOTION and doing a giveaway. Go and comment! So far, there’s only one comment, so you have a good chance. I don’t plan on doing a lot of giveaways. Instead I’ll be busy writing my next book. 🙂

What have you been busy doing?

cattitude 133x22I’m at Avalon-Lion’s wonderful cat blog and am giving away a digital copy of CATTITUDE to a commenter. I’m hearing about a lot of cats and a couple of dogs. I’m having fun. But you can comment even if you don’t have a cat or dog. I love some of the cat names mentioned, and they just might turn up in my next book.

The giveaway doesn’t end until April 30th, so you have time to enter. If you read Cattitude already, you can gift it to a friend. Or if you want one of my other books instead, I can do that.

I’m 1/3 of the way through my first draft of my next book. It has cats and dogs in it, as well as the main characters. I had to research cat furniture for this book, which I enjoyed doing. So now I’m onto the next 1/3.

I’m going to Barbara Vey’s Reader Appreciation Luncheon tomorrow. If any of you are going, come up and say hi!

I’m participating in a giant blog Authors in Bloom Blog Hop with big prizes! We’re welcoming in spring. Right now in southern Wisconsin, we’re welcoming it in with rain. But the sun will come out sometime, and we’ll have green grass and budding trees. We don’t like to use chemicals on our lawn, and my husband was researching ways to kill weeds using a natural way. He got very excited to find out that vinegar kills them. So that’s my blog hop gardening tip.

You can find other gardening tips and recipes on the 63 other author bloggers.

For my prize, I’m giving away either a print or digital copy of MIRACLE PIE to a commenter. The print is US only. Read on for the Grand Prize.
Miracle Pie 246x360

Grand prize:
The Mega-Super-Prize is a Kindle Fire (or Nook) eBook reader.

To enter my giveaway, leave a comment, follow me on twitter, Facebook or subscribe to my newsletter. Once you leave a comment, you’ll be eligible to win our grand prize! Plus there will be 2nd and 3rd prizes drawn. The more sites on the hop you visit and leave a comment, the better your chances to win! And please leave your email address in the comments, so the group organizer can see it.

So tell me, are you a gardener? Or are you more of a cook?

The Authors In Bloom tour ends April 19th at 11:59pm EST. You can find out more at the Authors in Bloom Event Page.

You’ll find other participating sites here. Just click on the cute frog below! The more places you comment, the better your chances to win!

Have fun! Good luck on winning prizes!

I hope you’re having a happy Monday. It’s my normal blogging day at Magical Musings, and I think I did a pretty good one this week. It’s about songs for characters – and ourselves.

I’m also at the wonderful Cynthia Woolf’s blog today with a giveaway of one of my Miracle Interrupted books! I hope you’ll stop by. You don’t even have to read it. Just comment, “Great blog!” and no one will ever know. 🙂

I hope you have a great week!

Michelle Diener is giving 2 copies of her historical novel, THE EMPEROR’S CONSPIRACY, at Magical Musings: one in the US, and the other outside of the US. I’ve read it already in its unedited form and it’s wonderful.

Marilyn Brant is answering questions at her blog about her very cool book that will be out soon: PRIDE, PREJUDICE AND THE PERFECT MATCH.

Don’t you love the title and want to hear more? It’s a meme, and I’m doing one next week about MIRACLE PIE, my upcoming book.

I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

romcon badgeI’m at RomCon today, talking about stories – everyone has them. I’m also giving away an ecopy of STARDUST MIRACLE to 2 commenters. If you get a chance, stop by!

I sent MIRACLE LANE to my editor last week. On Sunday, I started my next Miracle Interrupted story. I was working on the plot and characters as I wrote, so I only have about 2500 words written. Now that I’ve gotten past the beginning, I should write faster. I hope to finish the first draft in 2 months.

How is your week going so far?

Aug 272012

I hope this is the beginning of a fabulous week for everyone! My prayers go out to everyone in the North Gulf Coast that you and your loved ones will be okay.

At Magical Musings today, I’m talking about kids and pets in books, and I’m giving away an ecopy of either STARDUST MIRACLE, DRAGON BLUES or CATTITUDE to a commenter. Tomorrow I’m a guest at Mary Hughes’ blog, where I’m giving away a copy of STARDUST MIRACLE to a commenter. I’m announcing the winner of The Magical Musings giveaway on Friday. I’m not sure when Mary will announce the winner on her blog.

So go forth and win!
