The blog went on a little hiatus last week because I was readying the house for first-time company (you know, the people you really clean up for, not like your mom). In doing so, I decided it was time to throw away some extra papers and magazines, clear out some old clothes...and have the bathroom remodeled.
Well, not entirely. Just the parts that are falling to pieces. Like the ceiling, the floor, and the walls. Those little extras that make a house a home.
I'll put it this way: the typical day around here sounds like this:
Twinkle's been spending her days cowering under the bed, while Misha just keeps purring and Meadow keeps sleeping (except when the contractors enter and leave the house, when she has to say hi).
Where was I? The newsletter. I have a new issue ready to e-mail to subscribers on Thursday, which marks the negative-three-month anniversary of the release of Shade.
In this issue, subscribers will receive:
1) A chance to win one of two Advance Review Copies (ARCs) of Shade.
2) A week's sneak peek of Shade's first chapter before I release it to the world. Be the first to read it! Or the 1,290th, if you are busy when the newsletter arrives.
3) A month's sneak peek at the cover for the third WVMP book, Bring on the Night.
And also some news.
The signup box is over there on the sidebar, or if you're reading this on Facebook or through your blog reader, go to my home page and look to your right (on the screen, not your body). Just enter your e-mail, click "Submit" and then follow the confirmation instructions e-mailed to you.
You can also check out the newsletter archives if you want a peek into the past. As you can see, my newsletters are totally text-based. I don't believe in clogging up other people's inboxes with images that are just repeats of the stuff on my website. Plus, I suck at design.
