It’s August, my absolute favorite month! This year August means hot days, afternoon thunderstorms, and the Olympics. I woke up this morning, anxious to get started on another month of 50k words to finish out Earth, Book Four of the Akasha Series. Granted, I fell back asleep almost immediately, but I am not deterred. I am excited, because did you hear? It’s August!
Besides the fact that it is my birth month, it is also my first child’s birth month – so lots of birthday cake to go around. Plus, we have a fun month planned; a trip to the beach and the awesome Orangeberry Summer Splash Mini Book Tour Marathon. A feature of 100 authors and 500 blog stops. With interviews, guest posts, music playlists, giveaways, and much more – there is something for everyone. Please check it out!
‘Water, Book One of the Akasha Series‘ will be featured. Here is the schedule:
2nd August - Author Interview at Grady Hendrix’s blog
5th August – Twitter Blast with Pandora Poikilos
10th August - Guest Post & Book Feature at Krazy Book Lady
11th August – Twitter View with Pandora Poikilos: follow @harmonygirlit to see
12th August – Book Feature at Peace from Pieces
17th August – Guest Post & Book Review at Christopher Starr’s blog
18th August - Ford 99 at Mommy Adventures: read page 99 of ‘Water’
Can’t wait? Here is a teaser; part of my interview:
If someone wrote a book about your life, what would the title be?
Slow down, already!
What is your guilty pleasure?
Favorite places to travel?
Anywhere without the kids…sorry guys, but sometimes mommy needs a break.
Of course, there will be reminders throughout August to check everything out, and I will be perusing to let you know my favorite blog stops. In the meantime – I want to know how you would answer the questions above! Leave a comment with your guilty pleasure and/or your favorite place to travel. Also, if someone wrote a book about your life, what would be the title?
