So I don’t often procrastinate. I just get pooped. I order my lists by most important to least, and sometimes something will crop up and I have to put the list aside. For example, I had a tight deadline for book 3 in THE ELVEN LORDS series, THE LORD OF ILLUSION, so that took precedence over my marketing list. Then when I finished, my partner sent me her book for a final read, and that takes precedence over my marketing list…which takes precedence over my cleaning list (since I started writing, I ignore dust bunnies.) My family always takes precedence over any of my lists, so ultimately; there are a few things on the bottom of the list that I may not get to in time.
I’m pleased to say that I did finish my writing lists and progressed to my marketing. I updated my website for the pending release for book 2 in THE ELVEN LORDS series, THE LADY OF THE STORM, and launched my first contest in celebration. I’m sharing it below, so I can check it off my list…and go on to the next task. If I’m not too pooped, that is. :}
First contest for
THE LADY OF THE STORM
To celebrate the upcoming release of THE LADY OF THE STORM, I am offering a gorgeous genuine blue topaz raindrop necklace, which represents the magical power my heroine half-breed inherited from her elven lord father. See below for a photo and description of this magical prize.
This first contest is all about spreading the word about the THE LADY OF THE STORM. To enter, just post the following blurb anywhere on the internet (Chatrooms, Forums, Blogs, Myspace, Amazon, B&N, Twitter, etc.) You may also copy and paste the cover, if you would like.
