The Big Day Approaches!

Right now I am frantically preparing for the launch of my seventh book next week. My husband calls it “spaz mode.” (Add panic to my hyper-spunky-type A personality and yes, you get spaz mode.) However, he has taken over the household duties so I can get everything done. I think he might be avoiding me, too.

And if you missed the opening of the sign up list for the A to Z Challenge, it’s this POST.

The next few days I will be focused on book stuff (which includes formatting two books for clients - not sure why I felt the need to take on even more) but I will be back full force Monday morning when my blog tour kicks off:

Feb 4 - Guest post on filling a need and find one’s niche at Mystery Writing is Murder
Feb 5 - Release day! Those who comment will be entered to win an autographed copy of my book plus some swag
Feb 6 - First Wed. of the month, so I’m posting here for The Insecure Writer’s Support Group and my tour stop will be a review with Stina Lindenblatt
Feb 7 - Guest post on writing articles at Tyrean’s Writing Spotv Feb 8 - Guest post on author mistakes with Alex J. Cavavaugh
Feb 11 - Guest post on book returns at Just Jemi
Feb 15 - Guest post on how to pitch to the media with Jennifer Shirk
Feb 18 - Interview and review at Write Now
Feb 22 - Guest post on the timing of one’s book release with C.M. Brown - and she will be doing a guest post here
Feb 25 - Guest post on review copies and free books at Under the Tiki Hut
Mar 7 - Guest post on the publicity window with Patricia Stoltey
Mar 13 - Guest spot with Jessica Bell

I’m also giving away three e-book copies to those who post about my book any time between February 5th and 8th. If you haven’t signed up but would like to, fill out the form below.

Thank you! Now I’m off to spaz some more. (And I just realized I went over 700 followers this week.)
