Not much to say today – I just finished my line edits for Private Property. I need to study more about American hyphenation standards – apparently they are different from Canadian/British standards. Other than that it’s all good and Private Property is one step closer to publication. Hmm, I had typed in ‘PP’ which is how I’ve been referring to Private Property in my emails but now I’ve got Personal Protection, I guess I’ll have to refer to them as PP1 and PP2. Those sound … rude.
Don’t forget about the free Holiday short stories over on The Samhellion. It’s a great way to find new authors (yeah, I can hear you grumbling – But Leah, my TBR pile is already six foot tall and threatening to topple or has already toppled and now covers my floor so deep I can’t see the carpet anymore. But these are free folks, and only three K long. They’re perfect to read when you’re sitting down and want a quick read during your lunch or your coffee break. (Ciar Cullen‘s Midnight Clear is really sweet because it’s based upon the true story of how her great-grandfather proposed to her great-grandmother. And how many other people can say their grandfather is Edward Cullen, LOL.) Today’s story(#11) is A Kringle in the System by MK Mancos which is a really fun read – it’ll make you see Santa’s elves in a whole new light.
Oh, and Angela’s Holiday Hell contest is winding up – it ends tomorrow, so get your Kindle entries in now! Today Angie blogged how there are less entries for the second Kindle than for the first. So get out there and start finding those icons. (Marley pointed out that if you have a slower connection and you’re searching a graphics heavy site you may have to wait a while for all the graphics to completely load in order to find them. But trust me. They’re there.) Today’s daily draw prizes include a Samhain Coffee Travel Mug (I need to get myself one of those), an apron, a cookbook (Gizmo Guy will tell me I need one of them since I tell when food is done by when the smoke alarm goes off), and books by Ciar Cullen, Sasha White, Eve Vaughn, Catherine Mann, Dianna Love Snell, Emily Hendrickson and Lucy Monroe.
