Happy Labor Day

Good Morning Darlings. As it is Labor Day and I'm sure none of you are about, as you are enjoying the weekends' festivities, (or getting ready for school) this will be a very short and very sweet post.

First up, thanks again, so much for all your lovely comments on my cover.

Second, thanks for all your lovely comments on my new menu at The Piedmont Grille.

Third, thanks to all of you who heard the pleading in my voice and helped out with the "Write a Post, Feed a Dog" Campaign. I'm not sure how many pounds we raised but I do know there were two different links going on. When I get more feedback on this issue, I'll let you know.

Fourth, I'm so happy to meet so many new friends at Karen G's Labor Day BBQ Bash. And if you haven't gone over and tried some of the fab food, or made some new friends, shame on you. Get on over there now, there's still time. (It's not just a BBQ, it's a blog hop to meet new readers and writers. I've met several interesting people I never would have found on my own. And I think it's safe to assume we all need new friends. Isn't that what blogging is all about?)

And lastly, but most importantly, I have been inundated with questions regarding how to format a manuscript for Kindle or agents (because most of them read partial and full requests on their Kindle). I've done up a post that will appear Wednesday the 7th of September. I hope you'll stop by.

Now go enjoy the rest of your Monday.

Ooh, I'll have to hop over for some BBQ. Kids went back to school in France today:) And I'm looking forward to your posts!

Linda G. said...

Happy Labor Day, Anne! May you enjoy a labor-free holiday. :)

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Wow, I feel like I've been gone for such a long time. Cover? I'm definitely missing something.

Bish Denham said...

Happy Labor Day to you too! We're actually expecting a cool front to come in so at least it won't be so bloody hot here!

Anne Gallagher said...

Talli -- The party is fantastic. The food alone is enough to keep me on a culinary high for days.

Katie -- It's so weird to think your kids are in school during a holiday.

Linda -- Revisions. Enough said.

Stina -- It does feel like you've been gone a long time.

Bish -- I'm glad the weather is changing for you. I'm still praying for rain though (for you, not me.)

Lynn said...

That is a beautiful cover! I have a lot to catch up on, on this Labour Day including blogging friends.

Your header is stunning!
I've just popped in from Karen's barbecue - feeling rather stuffed, actually;-)

Anne Gallagher said...

Lynne -- Thanks. It's so hard to catch up after being away.

Jabblog -- Thank you. I know what you mean about the food at Karen's. Fantastic.

Rula -- Happpy Labor Day!

Hehehe, Anne, can't wait till you explain the formatting thing! :) I'm actually very curious about the Kindle formatting. Might just mess with it for fun!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Will that be your encouragement post for the Insecure Writer's Support Group?
I'm posting a day early, so really hope you stop by tomorrow.

Jen Daiker said...

Happy Labor Day Anne! You're fabulous and I'm looking forward to the release of your book! Ever since I've seen the cover I'm more excited now!

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Fantastic! I'm very interested in learning how to format for Kindle. (Guess I better BUY one, too!)

Anne Gallagher said...

Bridget -- You taught me everything I know so... you can catch me in the mistakes.

Alex -- Well, it might not be encouragement in that particualar sense, but I hope it will make some things easier.

Jen -- Aww you're too sweet. I know, covers do make the reality that more exciting.

Susan -- There's an free app for Kindle downloads for your PC now. I probably should post it here somewhere. I think if you just google, free Kindle app, it might pop up.

Tara said...

Not the prettiest Labor Day, eh? But, boy did we need the rain!

Christine Danek said...

Well, I spent time with the family. I hope you had a wonderful day and I will be back tomorrow.

Patti said...

You go away for a month and so much happens, just goes to show how much can change. The cover looks awesome.

Sarah Ahiers (Falen) said...
