Gaby’s Books & Muchness – Weekly Update – Volume 18_05272018


Happy Memorial Day!!! And welcome to another edition of Weekly Update!!!

Today, I’m spending the entire day in Savannah Morgan’s reader group, Saviland, sharing book posts, games and giveaways. If you aren’t already a member of her group, you need to join to participate.

Only one event this week… it’s sort of the lull before the busyness and excitement of June to come. So Monday I’ll be participating in my first ever live poetry write… Yeah, I do on occasion write some verse, as you can see on my website. Anyway, it will be in Ardent Rose’s reader group, Crazy 4 Rose, and I’m on at 10:30, writing with the wonderful Auguste Wilde, so hope you can join us!

Next Saturday, a new weekly feature will be starting here in the group… Saturday Showcase will feature an author each week, giving them the chance to “takeover” the group and share books, and games, and more. Our first author, on June 2nd, will be Ardent Rose, so mark your calendars and make plans to be here and get to know her (she’s pretty amazing, so don’t be late *winks*)

Bistro Wednesday, over in The Writers’ Bistro, continues with the SWASHBUCKLER archetype this Wednesday. We’re nearly through all the male hero archetypes, so if you haven’t read the posts, and joined in the discussion, now’s a great time to jump in and catch up.

Alright, everyone, back to work I go… so much to do before June starts!!! Have a great week, and I’ll see you back here next Sunday!!! Until then, wishing you Peace, Love, & Muchness!!!



Gaby’s Books & Muchness – Weekly Update – Volume 17_05202018

Welcome back for another weekly update here in the Land of Muchness. Lots going on, so let’s get right to it.

So, it was a momentous week for me… I’d set myself a goal to finish two short stories, and two super short stories by the end of May, and yesterday I finished the last one. It’s being beta read, and needs to be edited, but it’s written. I feel quite accomplished, and at the same time don’t know what to do with myself for the rest of the month LOL… Time to catch up on fixing sites and such. All the stories were written for anthologies, so hopefully over the summer and into the fall, these great stories will be coming out for you all to read.

June is going to be a very busy month here in Muchland…

RapidFire is coming back on June 11th @10PM EST… I don’t know yet who’s coming to play, but it’s sure to be a blast.

There will be a group reading going on in June as well. I’d proposed a possible read of THE COLD ONES, and now I’m finally ready to do it. I’m scheduling it for the week of June 10th (6/10-6/16), and you need to be a member of the group to attend, but hey, you should be a member… we cool *winks*

Debuting this June will be a Saturday Showcase. Each week, we will host an amazing author who is free to takeover the group for an entire day. Teasers, games, live feeds… whatever these authors want to do, they can do. We already have four stellar authors lined up, starting with the spectacular Ardent Rose on June 2nd, so be sure to mark your calendars and keep Saturdays free.

Meanwhile, also coming in June over in The Writers’ Bistro will be the very first Bistro Book Blurb Workshop. If you are a writer, or know a writer, who has ever struggled with writing the almighty book blurb, you will definitely want to check this out. June 25th-27th, we’ll be sharing tips, templates, Q&A, and more, and giving everyone a chance to get feedback if they want. You need to be a member of The Writers’ Bistro to attend, so join right now!

Events coming this week: I’ll be stopping in to help Roux Cantrell celebrate the Cover reveal for her next book, No Mercy, on Saturday, the 26th, from 7:40-8PM EST. Then, later that same night I’ll be guesting in a RapidFire in Echo Hart’s fan/reader group. The RFTO there will be between 9-10PM EST, so make sure you come check it out. You’ll have to join her group to attend.

Oh, and before I forget, next Saturday I’m taking over my girl Savannah Morgan’s group, Saviland, ALL DAY!!! Yep, it’s a Gaby Sunday next week, so be sure to join her group and come check out the goodies I bring… Anything could happen!

Okay, I think that is all the news and excitement for this week. Until next week, and the next Weekly Update, have a great week everyone! Peace, Love & Muchness to all!!!



Gaby’s Books & Muchness – Weekly Update – Volume 16_05062018

*to myself* You know, this is the longest I’ve ever maintained any kind of journal-like posting, ever! *realize ya’ll are there* Ahem…


Hey there!!! Welcome back to another thrilling edition of Weekly Update!!!


So, Friday night I stopped by the rocking live show which is BarSide Shenanigans, and chatted with host Sophie Lynn about my books and some of the stuff I’m working on. It was a great interview, I had heaps of fun (although I was a little nervous)… Anyway, if you get a chance check out my interview, and fellow guest Leah Negron.


Writing continues on various projects… I submitted a couple of finished stories this week, and am halfway through the final edit on the Ivan short story for the Creature Feature anthology… Now, I’ve moved on to another story for a bullying/ violence anthology… It’s going to be a short one, 10k-15k or so, and I’m moving along quickly… it’s not the one I had planned on writing, which was a good premise, but it just wasn’t snapping to life for me and I don’t have time to sit and idle, staring at the page, so to speak… So, I shifted gears and picked another idea I had, and it’s tripping along nicely so far.


Last update, I mentioned the new feature I’m going to be starting on Thursdays, the Thursday 3000, in which you guys submit writing prompts and the one with the most votes will be my prompt to write a little story, 3k-word max. I’m hoping to get that started soon, certainly by the end of the month, so start collecting some writing prompts for me… You can find them easily enough through a simple search on Pinterest, or on any search engine really. Can’t wait to see what you guys come up with.


Events this week… Just one… Thursday I’ll be the guest of the fabulous Steven Evans for a RapidFire takeover 8-9PM EST… Don’t be late!!!


And that concludes this Weekly Update… Until next time, hope everyone has a spectacular week… Peace & Love & Muchness to all!!!
