Blogging. . .

May 1 is tomorrow, so I figured I’d write this like it’s the first post in May, but before I get ahead of myself, I’d like to give a shout out to my husband on this last day of April. Happy Birthday honey! Enjoy Maine and I’ll catch you on Sunday.

Quite a few of my Backspace brethren have book releases in May so without further adieu, check out these titles this month: William Mills - A 30 DAY RETREAT: A PERSONAL GUIDE TO SPIRITUAL RENEWAL, Emily Winslow - THE WHOLE WORLD, Marie-Claude Bourque - ANCIENT WHISPERS, Robert Gregory Browne - DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN, Chris Grabenstein - ROLLING THUNDER, Boyd Morrison - THE ARK, and Marlys Pearson - HELPLESS. Congratulations folks and here’s to stellar sales!

Now onto my blog, which I am transforming a bit over the next few months. I’m going to start bringing in guest bloggers and doing author interviews instead of just my aimless rambling, and I’m also going to pledge to more than once a week. I plan on mixing up the questions as well, to bring more fun and snap to the Q&A sessions and leave the same repetitive blog tour questions at the door. I also plan on letting my characters take the helm as well. So hang on for a wild ride!

So far I have a handful of author’s booked starting with C.R. Moss at the end of May and Lauren Baratz-Logsted in June. I’ve also got a commitment from Anita Philmar for July and am currently nailing down a date with Jeremy Shipp. I’ll be filling in the schedule over the next couple weeks and as you can tell, I’m not genre specific here, I go from romance to chick-lit, to YA - to middle grade all the way to horror, so whatever your preferences are, I hope you will find some mind bending and enlightening posts here!

Anyhow, that about wraps it up. I’m off to take my son out to dinner. It’s rare that he and I are left to our own devices without my daughter or husband around, so it just seemed fitting to celebrate with an ice cream sundae!

Thank you so much for mentioning my book, I am touched and honored. After a while I catch myself thinking, "gee, does anyone care out there??" I GREATLY APPRECIATE IT.

Be well

No problem Bill. At the beginning of each month I try to showcase the Backspace member releases in my blog. :)

It's the least I can do considering how much direction and mentoring everyone over there has given me.
