New Year New Exciting Opportunities

2017

Happy New Year!

Sure, I am a few days late. I have been traveling and not able to post new posts. I had some special blog posts for you over the holiday by some special MTW authors and I hope you found some new people to read and follow. I have chosen some amazing authors to post guest articles so I hope you enjoy seeing them this month.  You have already heard from Geoffrey Monmouth a new author from Wales, John Nicholl, and you will be hearing more from authors like Steven Perkins, Jack Kregas, a few women mystery writers that I can’t name just yet and a couple of extra fun surprises. January should be a fun month.

Everyone that knows me, knows by now, that I am super excited to be involved with Mystery Thriller Week  You may not, however, know that I am reviewing almost 40 books for the event. That is nowhere near the number Benjamin Thomas is reading.  That means I will be holding on to my reviews on the mystery and thriller books until February 12th – 22nd.  With the books I have garnered to read, I can tell you I am finding some wonderful writers that really love to bring the thrills, chills, and mysteries to life. I have cozies, psychological thrillers, serial killers, whodunits, amateur detectives, surly detectives, environmental thrillers, anthologies, romantic suspense, and good old FBI with terrorists ready to go, raring to be read, and itching to be reviewed. I have some tucked away, a few scheduled, one or two in the reading process and the rest are lined up one after another to be next on my list. But do not fear, I will get them all finished before the scheduled date.gears

With that being said, I assure you, I will be posting other types of book reviews this month and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy sharing my joy of books. I have some amazing children’s books, a romance or two and some interesting non-fiction to share.  Plus a few for NetGalley and Blogging for Books. It should be a fun month of reading.

One of the best parts of being on the events team of MTW is organizing and bringing to light some new best-selling indie authors, as well as best-selling traditional authors, along with brand new authors, and seeing them work so well together. It is wonderful to see the mentoring, the exchange of ideas and the social interaction of all these like-minded, yet totally unique individuals.

The best announcement I can make is that if you dash up to the website super-fanwww.mysterythrillerweek.com you can join in as a super fan and be included on all this interaction. You will be given front row seats to all the events in the comfort of your own home.  You will also be given a free book by one of our best-selling authors. This offer is good until January 9th.

To be totally frank with you, we can’t wait to welcome you into the MTW family. So happy 2017, the year of the Mystery Thriller Week and you.

 

Ain’t Got Time For That!

November began on a positive note with NaNoWriMo going full swing.  Wrote every day and  maintained a nice little schedule. For those that would never believe it, I maxed out in my multitasking. I got involved with #MysteryThrillerWeek and between setting up the bones for the participating bloggers, authors, and specialists with Benjamin and Sherrie, and working on the Facebook page for the hourly hosting , I missed a day of writing. Do I pick up today and pretend it didn’t happen?  I am in a quandary.

I am writing, letter, schedules, my three-month production plan, reviews, and more letters. I am having a blast. I am excited about the week. I am excited to be making new friends and finding new authors and their work.

Locating book reviewers and requesting that they join in and sending those tweets to publicists, authors, bloggers and trying not to be annoying. It is a juggling act. Perfect for a multitasker like me.  Then I realized I had not written a word for NaNo yesterday. I was pretty aggravated with myself. I mean I am a queen at multitasking. How had that happened? So instead of racing over to Scrivener and whipping out a few words, I decided to write a blog post, a few more contact letter, Tweet out a few invitations, and hold a chat with Sian, Benjamin, and Sherrie. Oh yes, even I have multitasking limits. This was enlightening to me.  Today I grew in knowledge of myself. I have a limit and once I reach it, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.”

By the way, if you have not joined us for #MysteryThrillerWeek now is the time. We are getting some excellent authors willing to provide books for review, interviews and those much loved Character Q&A’s. Just think of it like this, if you sign up, you get to see one of those letters I have been writing.  That’s right! An official Welcome letter will wing its way to you compliments of the Events Team!

About The Traveler Series:

The series started from a longing to want to travel after hearing all the good and bad tales from long term backpackers.

Every single piece that made it and didn’t make it in this is book has a special place in my heart as they were the beginning of a journey of a memory that never happened, but a longing that was constant.

We all naturally have it in us to wonder and wander, it’s just a matter of allowing it to take you to places.
