Friday Five for July 5, 2013

1. We had a fun Fourth of July yesterday. The parade was in the morning, and then we visited with friends. A nice dinner and fireworks in the evening. My husband has today off too, so we might go to the zoo if the weather holds. And then maybe the lake on the weekend.

2. All my revisions for THE GHOST are done. Yay! It's with my CP/editor now, and she'll proof it. Then hopefully on Monday or Tuesday, I can get it up on the purchase sites. My blog tour guest posts are done and sent. I'm on top of thing this week.

3. Next week, I'll take a moment to breathe and ready myself for THE GHOST blog tour. I'm also starting Parent & Tot swim lessons with the boy. Those will be every weekday morning for two weeks. Then my local critique group meets on the 20th. So I'll have to do the critiques the week before. June went by so quickly, and I suspect July is going to fly by too.

4. I read the final book in Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series. It's a wonderful series, but I was disappointed by this last book. Not just because I didn't get the ending I wanted either. I posted a big review with a spoiler warning on Goodreads if you're curious as to what I thought of one of the most famous paranormal romance series in the world.

5. Eight days until the official release of THE GHOST. Thank you to everyone that commented on my IWSG post on Wednesday. I'm still nervous, but not as much as I was before. You guys are awesome!

Have a great weekend!

  1. I totally expect July to fly by, too. (I'm still wondering where June went!) So exciting how The Ghost will be out soon. I absolutely can't wait to purchase my copy!

    Also, sorry to hear you were disappointed with the last Sookie Stackhouse book. I never kept up with this series, but I can relate to the disappointment, since some other series I've adored have ended poorly, too. Never fun!

  2. The books are supposed to be much better than the TV series True Blood. I have not read them yet, but I do plan to...eventually....There are so many of my blogging friends that are coming with new books and they take priority...like you :) Enjoy your week-end!

  3. Congratulations on getting The Ghost so far. I can't wait to read it :) Toddler swimming was always fun - okay, my one daughter dreaded it, but the rest loved it. Have fun splashing around!
