Happy News

Good Morning My Darlings. As you have been witness to my posts of late (in the wrong place, the wrong date, the wrong subject on the wrong day) it is safe to say I have been busy in the brain. Trying to get my book(s) ready for Kindle is like trying to thread the eye of a needle with a camel. (Look Linda, it's Wednesday and I have a camel reference, yay!)

Okay, maybe not impossible, but really really hard. For me. And I appreciate a certain someone's telling me it would be hard and I should probably find someone to do it for me, but being a stubborn wench, if you tell me I can't do something, then I absolutely have to try.

And as you saw from Monday's post, I made a few mistakes along the way, but like with everything else you try the first time, there's bound to be one or two. (I'm not going to tell you what my first souffle looked like, suffice it to say, over time I can kick a souffle's *ss!)

So anyway, this is just a little happy news I thought I would share with you. On Friday I have the honor and priviledge of doing a book review for Elliot Grace's SOUTH OF CHARM. He's got prizes and give-aways so you better stop by and see what's what. Fantastic book, and that's all I'm going to say.

My new author web-site/blog is almost ready to be unveiled. Waiting on two more thingy-things to come to fruition before it can be revealed. Also, I'm this >< close to launching my own book THE LADY'S FATE to Kindle so I hope you'll come by for that. And if I throw a major cocktail party you guys will come, right?

I also wanted to give a giant shout-out to all my new friends who've followed me on my side bar. I'm so thankful for your shiny happy faces. I've been crazed the last few months, which is why you probably haven't seen me on your blogs, but let me reassure you, once I get my book(s) out and I'm over this hump, I'll be by. (Look Linda, two camel references.) Your support means the world to me.

And for those of you who've been kind enough to present me with awards, thank you so much. I know I haven't done anything with them, but soon, I promise.

I'd also like to say, there are a few more changes coming to this blog in a few more weeks, so it'd be swell if you stuck around. I'm so busy lately, and with there only being 24 hours in a day, it's hard to get some things done in a timely manner.

So, anyway, that's all the news I have. I hope you'll stop by on Friday for Elliot.

I'm looking forward to checking out your new website, Anne. :)

Bish Denham said...

My goodness Anne! I'm so excited for you. With your own publishing company will you be able to publish other people's work? Is that something you'd consider doing?

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

How exciting! It's been forever since I took a dip in the blogosphere -- and look at all that changes going on over here! Huge congrats on getting your books up on Kindle. Can't wait to get my copies! And I'll look for your upcoming blog/website changes. Best of luck to you, dear friend, in this and all your endeavors! ((hugs))

Anne Gallagher said...

Stina -- Thanks, I think you'll like it. I even learned HTML codes to get it to look just right. (Big step for me!)

Bish -- Wow, that's a great question. I never thought about publishing someone else's work. I mean I'm sure that I could, but with the publishing world right at someone's fingertips I don't see why anyone would want me to publish theirs.

Anne Gallagher said...

Nicole -- It's great to see you again. Thanks for all your warm wishes. ((hugs)) right back at ya!

Yvonne Osborne said...

I'm always up for cocktails! It's a daunting task you've taken on, but it sounds like you've crossed your T's and dotted every I.

Best of luck to you. I'll be back.

Bossy Betty said...

Sorry I have been AWOL here. I have missed visiting my blog buddies. Hope you understand. Thanks for your kind comment on my blog this morning. Nice to know you understand.

Linda G. said...

LOL! Bonus points for the camel references. *grin*

Anne Gallagher said...

Yvonne -- After the third upload, Yes, I think every single i is dotted and every t crossed. Well, let's hope so anyway.

Betty -- Of course I understand. You take as much time as you need getting to where you need to be.

Linda -- Thought you might like them!
