Life gets crazy!

Man, I've been busy! Where has the summer gone? Is life crazy for everyone or is it just me?

So, here's what I've been up to...

Reading this.
Mistborn: The Final Empire (Mistborn, #1)

If you like fantasy and haven't read it, get to it! I'm not kidding. Brandon Sanderson has created a mix of compelling character's, fantastic world building, intense conflict, and a heightened climax all in an epic fantasy. Who cares about falling ash and night time mist when you have a little magic. You don't want to miss it!

I've also been busy with the final rewrite of my book. Yes, there will be one more read through and edit, but I'm so close! I can feel the end...but it's still so far. This whole revision process is killing me. I just want to sit down and write another book. That's why I tell myself it will come soon!

I've also been busy shopping. Yes, I have a little weakness for deals. And end of summer deals are here. Not to mention the Border's going out of business and everything being on sale. We may or may not have spent too much time and money on one of my favorite things. Books. 

Actually, most of them were for the new reader in my family. I just can't pass up on Ramona Quimby, Junie B. Jones, and Amelia Bedelia. I'm so excited for her to read them! And I also snagged a few BOB books for my preschooler's! 

Yay for books :)

I hope you all have a fabulous week! Don't forget WriteOnCon next week. Head on over now to get in on the early excitement. 


  1. Yay for being almost done with your book! Such a great feeling. Loving it so far, by the way. :)

  2. I love the cover art. Brandon Sanderson lives near me but I've never seen him around.

  3. I've never heard of the book or author, but I do like Fantasy; will have to check it out.

    Good luck with your rewrites! :)

  4. Sounds like you're keeping busy! I can't believe WriteOnCon is next week~ this year is flying :)

  5. Yay for Mistborn! I so love Brandon Sanderson. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

  6. I'll see you around at WOC. It'll be my first one and I'm so excited!

  7. By the way, I tagged you for a Meme over at my blog. Feel free to do it or not :)

  8. hey! Cool book, and GOOD LUCK to you on the rewriting and revisions. That's what i'm doin! :o) <3

  9. Congrats on approaching the end of your revisions!
    Yes, summer has been insane! I, too, have spent way too much time on Borders' books--mostly for my 2nd grader, though.
    I'll have to check out the book. Though my to-read list is enormous, I never grow tired of hearing about good books.


Thanks so much for visiting! I appreciate your comments and feedback.
