Can you believe August if officially here? For me, it’ll be a super busy month preparing for the American Christian Fiction Writer’s Conference, as well as all the end-of-summer and back-to-school shenanigans.
For that reason, I’m giving myself a “break” from blogging by passing the baton to some other amazing authors. August will be an Author’s Open House here on the blog! Almost every Tuesday and Thursday I’ll welcome one of my Christian author friends through the doors to sit and chat with you about writing, reading, books, and more. Here’s our fantastic line up, so far:
I can’t wait to see what these ladies bring to the “party.” Without a doubt, you’ll be entertained, encouraged, and even educated. In the meantime, check out their websites and get to know them. You’ll have a chance to ask questions and chat with them about their books and much more! There may even be a few giveaways sprinkled along the way.
In Other News…Keeping In Touch!
Many of you already follow me on Facebook and Twitter (appreciate you!). But I wanted to make sure you knew about THREE other fun ways to keep in touch with our little community here.
- Instagram – Follow me on Instagram for a glimpse into my everyday life as a mom, wife, home cook, and more. You’ll also find lots of encouragement and inspiration!
- Pinterest – I’m obsessed with pinning, y’all! Do you pin? My 19 (!!!) boards include Things for Book Lovers, Encouragement & Inspiration, Author Tips, Book Inspiration (where I pin ideas for my books!), Character Inspiration, Home Ideas, and much, MUCH more!
- Monthly Newsletter – Hopefully if you’re a follower of this blog, you’re one of the sweet folks who get my monthly email delivered to your inbox on the first of every month. If you’re not yet subscribed, there’s special incentive to do so! In addition to fun, sassy Southern charm, updates on my writing, exclusive links, and even some of my favorite recipes, this month’s issue announced an AMAZING giveaway!
Everyone subscribed to my newsletter list by midnight this Sunday will be entered to win a 6×6 original canvas from artist Cyndi Browning (also my twin sister). Her art is gorgeous, each is one-of-a-kind, and she’s on her way to making a real name for herself. If you’re not already signed up, CLICK HERE to subscribe and be entered to win. Extra entry for those who “like” her on Instagram or Facebook and leave a comment telling her I sent you! Good luck!
Last But Not Least…
I’m all about celebrating the releases of awesome new books…even better when written by a great friend! Jaime Jo Wright, along with several of her author friends, is celebrating the release of her latest novella “Gold Haven Heiress” in The California Gold Rush Romance Collection (Barbour)!
Get a look behind the scenes of her not-so-glam release day here.
THEN, join her online Facebook RELEASE PARTY tonight at 8:00PM here.
