I don’t typically make a schedule for my posts. I usually have so many projects going at once that it is difficult to plan ahead. There are several happenings that will occur in February, some of which will be impossible to pin down with any certainty. I will have the customary reviews that can only be accomplished by finishing books. I have paperbacks of El Rey, The Welsh Healer, and The Converso–English and Spanish versions–to finalize. I am also determined to start in earnest on novel #3.
But this month I will be working with several other writers who are far better organized, thus I am compelled to keep their deadlines so not to throw them off-track. My best bunny pal, Karen Aminadra, has graciously offered to cross-link her blog with mine, and if I knew how to do it, I would. Since that is not the case, I will simply put up her link and let you know
that she always has something interesting going on at her blog. Right now she is counting down to Valentine’s Day with some very mushy stuff indeed. Now for the things that I can tout with confidence!
I would like to start the month off with a reminder of the current giveaway at Unusual Historicals of an ebook version of The Welsh Healer in Kindle or Nook format. Last day to leave a comment is Saturday, February 2nd.
Next, kick off Superbowl Weekend with a FREE highly-rated book from Java Davis (If you visit the site, make sure you say Happy Birthday while you’re there!) Java is a versatile writer and all-around great person with too many ideas to count. You can be sure you are downloading something interesting and well-written, and for FREE, how can you go wrong?
February 1-3: Depression Carpenter
Then in anticipation of Valentine’s Day, get ready for a multi-author Blog Hop & Giveaway. I will be offering another chance at a Kindle version of The Welsh Healer. The list of participating blogs will be posted February 10-16 with lots of great books and other goodies up for grabs. Keep an eye out for the logo at the right.
On February 18th I will be hosting Keta Diablo to tell you all about her new ‘sweet’ historical romance, Sky Tinted Water. If you know anything about this accomplished author, you know that she typically writes slightly spicier fare. It will be very interesting to find out why she decided to go in a different direction this time around. I have been privileged enough to receive an ARC of her newest effort, and it looks spectacular. I will also run my review of the book when it is ready.
The next two events will be back at Unusual Historicals. This month’s theme is Scandalous Affairs, and on February 20th I will be talking about Joan, the Fair Maid of Kent, and how her hot-blooded nature caused trouble and set tongues wagging all over 14th century Europe. The post on the 25th will be all about me, so be prepared for a much less dramatic story.
That is enough to keep my brain spinning for now, and it reminds me that I have many other things to attend. January came and went faster than I could have ever imagined, and I am sure the rest of the year will be more of the same. With any luck, I will soon have more books for you to read and more adventures to share. As ever, thank you for your interest. It is the reason I continue to write.
