Hey, gang! Hope everyone had a fantastic Halloween weekend, or at the very least enjoyed that extra hour of sleep. (I just got up at the same old time--now an hour earlier into my day. -_-)

Just a few things on the docket today…

Blog Changes

Y'all might've noticed a I've put a fresh coat of paint on the joint recently. I'll be rolling out an "official" author website soon and wanted the blog to have a similar feel--but more on that to come in days ahead.

I've also made something of an executive decision regarding cover announcements, book blasts, and other promotional things I do for other authors. I've decided to give them their on page on my blog.

I'm doing this for 2 reasons --

1) So folks can easily find all of the new stuff authors are sending down the pipelines. There are so many new releases, etc. now that they get sprinkled in with all of my other posts and, I fear, get lost in the shuffle. 

Now you can simply click the "All About Books & Authors" tab above and see everything "new" I'm sharing on a weekly basis. Plus, there are usually giveaways associated with these things, so if you're on the lookout for chances to win cool freebies, this'll make it easier to do.

2) I want to keep my posts separate so it's clear what content is coming from me, and what content I'm simply sharing for others.

I'll be sure to highlight everything I've shared on the books and authors page on the main blog page, so don't worry that your announcements aren't going to get noticed.  They'll just actually exist in two different places now. (Once in link form, once in full-post form.)

So what'll you find under the books & authors tab right now?

Echoes by Amy Evans  - Amy is releasing the followup to her YA eco-fantasy, Clicks, with Echoes. And the cover is gorgeous! 

Time On Her Side by Shelly Arkon - Shelly is offering up her latest FREE on Amazon right now, and it's currently #7 in the 'time travel' category. I just snagged my copy and recommend you do the same (tomorrow is the last free day). 

Be sure to click over for a look at the fantastic cover, book description, and more on Shelly if you aren't already acquainted with her. She's a fantastic writing-blogging friend to have. :)

That's it for today! I'll be back Wednesday for IWSG!



  1. Congratulations to the winners!
    Smart idea to separate it. There are just so many new books these days.

  2. Congrats to all those who won. That's an interesting piece of art on your masthead.
    Been wanting to shake things up a little bit on my blog too, but can't seem to drum up the energy.

  3. Congratulations to the winners. :)

    Great idea regarding the new page. I've though about doing something like that, too. Or at least grouping them into a weekly post.

  4. Thank you, EJ!

    The page is looking good!

  5. Love the new blog EJ. And thanks for the e-book collection. I read the first installment and loved it, so I'm thrilled to get the collection.


  6. Congratulations, winners! :)

    And hooray for fresh paint!

  7. Thank you, EJ! I can't wait to receive the anthology.

    And I love the new look of the site. Fantastic!

  8. Congrats to all of the winners!!! I think the paint job looks awesome - and I also think separating the announcements is a great, smart idea. Once I start doing them, I think I'll do the same :)

  9. Ugh, why wasn't I around lately? Congrats to the winners.
