Friday Five for April 3, 2015


1. We're three days in to the 2015 A to Z Blogging Challenge. If you're participating, how are you doing? I'm doing it with the Untethered Realms group again this year. It's so much fun and less stress that way. Pop on over to read teasers from our books.

2. With the Challenge going on, I'm going to step back and only do a few blog posts this month. Some promos and reviews for my fellow authors, and my Friday Five.

3. I've started a new urban fantasy novel. It's slow going at the moment, but this one is heavy. It's going to be a big one. Huge in length, but also heavy plot-wise. So many things are weaving together. I love having a story grow organically like this.

4. Today is my husband's birthday. My son and I will bake him a cake and make him a special dinner. And it's Easter this weekend. Happy Easter to all who celebrate! My little guy is eager to go egg hunting.

5. Finally, thank you to everyone who supported and encouraged me during my tours. You guys are awesome! Here are the final winners of the Geeky Dice & Debauchery Tour Giveaway.

    Your tours are epic and you're starting another major work? I need some of that energy.

  2. Have a great time celebrating with your husband and family! It's one of the + sides of not doing A-Z, being able to slow down for a month blogging wise. Good luck on your new ms! And have a great weekend! :)

  6. I started a new novel two days ago. I'm not sure April is the best time, but at least I'm not alone.

    Happy Easter, and I hope the cake goes well :-)

  9. Good luck with the book--those heavy ones are the ones I find most gratifying but they are definitely the hardest to do. And Happy Birthday to your Sweet Baboo!

  15. Congratulations to the winners! I'm pondering how much I'm going to blog this month. Not sure how not participating in the A-to-Z will impact how many people wander over.

  16. Thank you all! I have a sick little boy on my hands, so no big celebrating this weekend. I'm sure he'll still find energy to do an egg hunt, though. :) Have a great weekend!

  26. Happy birthday to your husband (i think I am days late for that) sorry. What an incredibly smart idea ya'll have, a team working together on the A to Z challenge. Must take some of the stress away and allow you to still enjoy the fun and benefits of the challenge. I will have to remember that next year.
