Where You'll Find Me

I'm currently running my blog over at WritersAfterDark.net. I'd love it if you stopped by and hang for a bit! I'll return the favor, promise!

Running two blogs gets a bit difficult, so bear with me while I figure things out. In the meantime, if I could interest you in industry news, writing tips, and poking some fun at writerly problems, you'll find me here:

Celebrating All the Small Things...


This hop comes with easy instructions:
Sign up, post something to celebrate,
hop around and cheer on others, bask in warm glow.
Full instructions and badge here.

This week I'm celebrating:

1- I won my very first giveaway!
It's an awesome necklace. I'll share the picture next week.

2- The kids are fighting with each other about who loves Mommy more.
I know I shouldn't condone them fighting, but surely if there ever was
a good reason it would be them fighting over me, right?

3- I had progress with my WIP.
By progress, I mean I deleted almost 4 whole chapters.
But, hey, at least I'm saving myself some time in the future.
I think.

4- I received my first official review.
Well, since it hasn't been released yet, the reviewer kept it spoiler free.
You can read it here. You know, if you want o_O

What are you celebrating?

  1. What could be cuter than kids fighting over who loves mummy more. Sounds like a great week.

  2. That's so cute! Congrats on being a supermum, on winning a necklace, and hey, I have a Goodread giveaway up too (mine doesn't begin till 23rd Sept (our wedding anniversary) :) My first Goodreads giveaway. Hope it's worth it?

    Best of luck for a fab next week, and good for you on chopping four chapters, although I hope you kept them in a deleted file as appose to a complete delete? I'm assassinating Finding Luna right now. It's liberating and terrifying isn't it? :)

    1. Ha, mine ends the 22nd... I'll let you know if I thought it was worth it. Right now, I have no clue.

      I agree it is liberating and terrifying, which is why those four chapters are sitting in a separate folder. You just never know! I'll check into the setting for the link... not sure how that works at all o_o

  3. Did you win that gorgeous necklace you posted about a while back? I'm jealous!

    And what is more lovely than to hear two darlings (usually) arguing over love for Mommy?

    And a review!
    Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Yeah, I'm not getting The Mommy of the Year Award anytime soon... I'm pretty sure smiling stupidly while they fight is an automatic disqualifier.

  5. Such great thing to celebrate, Katherine! The little ones know their mom is worth fighting for! And I'm sure your review was spectacular! Can't wait to see the necklace. No doubt it will look beautiful on you! Happy weekend.

    1. Yes, what are the chances they will remember how much they love me when they are teenagers and fighting with me instead? I should videotape them the next time they fight over me so I have proof.

  6. NICE - it's always good to win a giveaway! I've won a few and I get all squealy every time!! My kids only fight over me when it involves who gets to tattle first. Ugh! Have a great weekend.
