Mo's_Heart_200x300I’m at author Maree Anderson’s blog today, talking about cats and dogs and romance again (but not saying the same thing!). I’m giving away an ecopy of MO’S HEART to a lucky commenter. Maree does a great job of setting it up. the post will be up until Sunday, August 4th. I hope you’ll stop by!

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!

Second, MO’S HEART will be out soon! It’s one of my top three favorite books that I’ve written. I’m very proud of it. I plan on selling it for only 99 cents for the first week. After that, I’ll raise the price to $3.99.

The next time I post, I’ll have more news about MO’S HEART!

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!

I’m blogging on Lee Hayat’s Tote Bags ‘n’ Blogs, where I’m giving away an e-copy of one of my Miracle Interrupted books to a commenter. The theme of my blog is about small towns, and I talk about Mayberry from the Andy Griffith show (Lee even put up a video clip of Barney, Opie & Andy; it’s very cute and under 2 minutes). But before I sent her the blog, I wondered if everyone would know what I meant leading off with this series from the 1960s. I asked on Facebook, and the answers were a resounding yes! Someone said their kids watch it on TV Land. So a new generation of children are learning about Mayberry.

I think what I like about Mayberry is, first, the great characters. Next is the sense of community. That’s how it’s turning out in my fictional village, though it took four books before I realized that aspect of smaller towns and villages, as if everyone in the place was an extended family member. In some ways, that’s a plus for the characters. For other characters – especially those with secrets – it’s a huge minus. And in my work-in-progress, there are a lot of secrets.

Contests: I think tomorrow is the last day of my contest at Fresh Fiction where I’m giving away a $25 gift card and a signed copy of STARDUST MIRACLE. My new contest for February will be up by then. By the way, the digital version of STARDUST MIRACLE is still free most places. I might keep it free until my next book is out. I’m not sure.

Enjoy the Miranda Lambert video below. It’s starting to snow by us. We’re supposed to get 2 to 5 inches. Not fun. How is it by you?

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.
